lgw got a reaction from Seamingly in Seamingly's 2 Foot Planted Tank
Looking good. Personally, I'm not a believer in overpriced plant substrates. I've always used a relatively coarse sand, like a river sand, pool filter sand etc. in conjuction with a quality water column fertiliser. Liverpool creek aquariums all in one being my favourite. From what i have seen, there isnt much you cant achieve with sand, a decent light and LCA all in one.
lgw got a reaction from QldMick in Melanotaenia breeders
Hey guys, are there any rainbow breeders out there? I have two tanks that i want to stock with single species of melanotaenia in each.
I am set on Herbertaxelrodi for one tank and pretty open for the other.
I currently have 12 good sized Trifasciata 'Habgood River' and i am willing to swap 3-4 of them for another species, as theyre are outgrowing their 4x15x18 tank.
lgw got a reaction from Harris. in Which plant fertiliser to use?
This is what i've been using, dosing once a week after a water change. I was also recommended the Liverpool Creek 'all in one'.
I can't remember why i chose the easy life, but i've been happy with it so far ( I have java fern and anubias also).

Sunday Snoozing Under the Covers...
You'll be pleased to know the Dog & I have gone all-out in pursuit of the GPGs. Tantalising food, and under-water video have been employed.
Sadly, the first results show just the usual suspects - goldfish and a few Oscars...
But then, we ran around to the deep end of the Billabong - aha! Much more exciting!
And, the obligatory "close-up" of the star with the nuchal hump!
Yes - I had to take two (2 !) photos to get it all in (I'm sure he was eyeing off the camera to swallow it). Really bad Photoshop skills here (let's face it - zero skills), but you get the drift.
(Pssst! If you make your PC or laptop screen window skinny the photos stick together - one on top of the other! Ha!)
And finally, yes there's a video to watch -->

PS: @crusty76 that's "Nelson" at the 2 minute mark with his natty hole in his forehead. No sign of any return of HITH, so he's doing fine.
