Thanks Chad! The Rams and Angels add so much personality to the tank. I love your tanks really beautiful. I how to be able to scape with as much talent someday! I look forward to seeing how your new cichlid tank comes out
The tank is looking really good!!! Again I love the fish assortment you have! Some of my very favorites!!! I hate that I can NEVER find the majority of them locally! I am going to do a Austin trip(100miles 1 way) when Tax return gets here and see if I can find some cool fish!
Milkman my parameters are Ph between 6.6-6.8,
Amm. 1Ppm or less, Nitrate less than 10Ppm, Nitrite 0 Ppm,
Temp. 77. I feed three times daily flake first, then either
frozen bloodworms or Brine w/ Sprinula, finally NLS small fish formula.
I dose C02 Booster daily, hope to upgrade to a tank at some point soon.
Good Luck with the breeding attempts. I hope this helps!
Thanks Alipper! I am thinking of growing some more Angels out (a friend has a breeding pair). With the feeding sched. I have for the Rams to breed, they should be about 4"x4" by summer. Loving the cardinals! It took a lot of trips to the my LFS to get a hardy school, but now they are little tanks.
Thanks for the feedback Gumbo. I am going to try and do a trim with my wc tomorrow.
Just wondered if you had ever tried Micro Sword before? It really seems to like lots of light, but grows just fine without CO2. The plants in your tank look so healthy and happy that I am sure that a bit of micro sword would do very nicely. Just a thought if you give up on the current carpet plant.
Thanks for the feedback. I am liking the layout so far. The Rams bred about 5 weeks after I got them settled into the tank. The first attempt at fry didn't go great, but I think it will get better. I have heard that it sometimes takes a few tries to get it right. I am going to try and split off a few free swimmers next time, in case things go awry again.
