  3. Hey Matt When they hatch they are tiny. I pop them in a bare bottomed fry tank and feed them microworms, freeze dried baby brine shrimp cysts & finely crushed flake twice a day. I do a 25-35% w.c every day, and every second day scrape bottom and sides of tank with an old credit card to remove biofilm. Being Bottom Dwellers they are a bit susceptable to fungus belly. When they get a bit bigger, I add grindals & NLS Grow. I'd keep your moss in fry tank with them, mine like to graze on it. Good luck!
  4. Although I don't keep Africans, I jhave used a product called No-Planaria for ridding tanks of snails. It wipes out planaria, also has a nice side effect of eliminating snails. Company manufactures shrimp products and it has no effect on shrimp or fry - although can only say that is what is said by the company, and I've had no ill efffects on my shrimp/shrimplets and in my community fish tank...haven't used it in a fry tank. If you have a look on the aquariumlife website, there are a few people on there that sell it. It IS expensive though... but very effective. Main thing with snails, is don't overfeed your fish. if you do use no -planaria, prepare to do some gravel vacs for a few days after using to ensure you get rid of snail corpses. Thsi will eliminate risk of ammonia/nitrite spike from decaying snails.
  5. My air pump in aged water bin crapped out - but I only found out after weekly water change. Can only assume that water has been sitting still (and at 26 degrees) for three days. Have tiny baby cory fry, pepp fry @2.5cm, adult cories, adult pepps and apistos/tetras/cherry & crs shrimp all in four different tanks. About 25% w.c done on tanks All tanks have air operating in them- water doesn't pong... What will adding stagnant water to tanks do to my fish?
  6. What they said - look at those lips! Finnage is lovely too...I'm justa sucker for those mick jaggers though....
  7. Congrats Jodi-Lea - well done on your wins. Again. Mr Ford doen well again, too. I'm taking the wee ones to Ekka, so have bugger all chance of getting past side show alley to view - am thinking i will have an attack of pregnancy vapours and sneak off to have a peek, leaving dear partner to deal with flairy floss-itis...

  9. Funky indeed, ginger. Pretty fish - glad to hear it turned out well in your favour. Colours are amazing - even with the grotty glass and flash. Both look metallic. What's that apisto in first pic, taking off like a scalded cat?
  10. How tiny is that fry! Wow - something in your water perhaps?! Literally I suppose, if you are on a system? What sort of set up do you have - ie tank size, sump/canister, RO or tank/tap? What other pairs do you have? Love to hear details from successful breeders!

  12. Ditto previous posts. Feeding it with live food/vegie supplement. Thera A, Finnicky Fish Forumula, Grow, Flake and Stable wafers are all combined for community tank. Wafers nightly for pepps with Thera A once a week.

  15. Crap - man, that does suck. Big time. Lucky you were home, eh? Beg, borrow or buy a big storage tub tomorrow to temporary house the others that won't fit in the four fter?? Seems a shame to have to re-start all over again... Kudos to you, though, for thinking of your fish. Sign of a dedicated fish-keeper. Your work stuff too - you poor poor bugger. Hope all seems a little betterer very soon.
