love thos little guys! got a small school of them in my 10g great additions to any tank super active all the time. probly the most curious fish i have ever kept, mine come over and say hi when i got to look at the tank or clean it!
Agreed - awesome fish. Constantly busy and get to every inch of the tank. Was a bit worried about all the baby shrimp and their safety but so far so good. - fingers crossed!
beautiful tank, what is the plant on the far left edge behind the stones
Apologies, missed this question - it's staurogyne tropica. Takes a little to get going but with good conditions grows a ground cover with medium size leaves. In poor light conditions it tends to grow a lot taller.
Looking to remove the Ambulia from the back left hand side, behind the rock, and replace it with something more appealing, and that contrasts better with my other plants. Although I'm happy with the layout of the tank for the most part, any ideas on the Ambulia replacement would be great. My plant knowledge is very limited so I'm stuck at where to go with selections.
ATM I am using only iron, and flourish @ half recommended dosage, and at water change only. I find any more than that and I get an influx of algae. - I would say it is attributed to the high nutrient content of the Aquasoil. I'm sure in time, once the ferts are depleted from the soil, I will have to increase the dosage.
- but hey, if the plants are full of colour, healthy and growing fast, I need not do any more than what is working. Good lighting and co2 ATM, with minimal ferts is dong the trick - so far anyhow.
Auburn Aquarium - it's virtually opposite auburn McDonald's. address I think is 228 parramatta rd auburn. Good guys down there and happy to trade or give credit.
See 'boody' or Andrew, both good guys! Good luck...
It sucks that I live in Hornsby and can't drive. I'll see if I can find a number and call them up :3 Thank's so much
I also have some baby tears and rotala Sp. green. got them from Asquith aquariums which had an extensive collection of plants when I last came back in winter. My mom said they've renovated recently. I'm not sure whether they've switched to marine or not. sent them a fb msg, waiting a reply
Today I have noticed a lot more baby shrimp. It looks like both types of shrimp are breeding, with really tiny ones which look newly hatched again. I counted about 20 babies today, which I imagine a lot more are amongst the foliage that I can't see. - I think I may end up with a lot more shrimp in the next couple of months!
They must really love all the hiding places to breed! - this is really rewarding!
