Beautiful. I will have to keep a eye on your tank incase you want to get rid of some of your trimmings lol. I love the killies. I have a single male in my flora, his cohorts found an opening in the top of my tank and slowly one by one jumped

Dario hysginon

Update June 7th

Hello folks,

Time for a small update with a few pictures.
Tank is doing great. Fought a small war with spirogyra again. Its under control now. Plants are still recovering from the brutal trim that they got a week ago.
In my last consignment from Rachel I got some Dario hysginon. Wonderful fish with a hell lot of attitude. They took their time to settle down but now they are fine. Doing good. They weren't eating anything initially. So I went ahead with adult brine shrimps. It really helped them making themselves comfortable in my tank. My strategy is first to make them comfortable with live food and then slowly switch to frozen food.
Here are the photos -

When I first got Dario hysginon. Oh yeah that's Syngonanthus sp 'Madeira'. Thanks to Joraan-




And once they settled down, their true color came out-


Show aggression mixed attitude if other male comes into one's territory-




They were really in wonderful shape. Rachel always has quality fish to offer-




Constantly looking for food and girls. haha-


Even Eriocaulon flower looks suspicious-


All pumped up in front of their girlfriends-


Here's photo of an Endler that I forgot to share in last update. Wonderful colors they have-


I took some more shots of Hypoptopoma gulare. I have written a small blog post about their eating habits - Here's the LINK







Rotala sunset has settled down too. It doesn't like a lot of Nitrates. It immediately response with new green growth.


Same goes for Ammania sp.bonsai. If someday I dose nitrates a bit more, the very next day it's tips will become green.


And one of my favorite plants.. Tonina fluvalitis 'lotus bloom'-


And now some mobile uploads. Photos that I took from my Iphone-

Alternanthera Reineckii 'Mini' makes a wonderful contrast spot in the foreground-


Polygonum kawagoeanum grows so fast. But I hate its habit of loosing its lower leaves-


Oh yeah.. I also have narrow leaf Java fern in my tank. haha..
New Life-


Syngonanthus belem-


Thanks to Sean for this big clump of Staurogyme sp purple-


Recently I saw Aponogeton madagascariensis at LFS. Somewhere deep down there was a desire to try out this plant. So I bought it. I know.. I know.. It grows big and will cover my small tank in no time. i know.. But I cant help my heart. Somethings arent suppose to be given a second thought. It was one of those things -


These leaves melted away in just one night haha.. And then 2 days later, I saw a pink, very delicate laced leaf coming out of the bulb-


And last but not the least.. My auratus. They are growing with a fast pace. I still cant figure out their sex. haha..


Some videos that I took from my phone -

Greedy Boraras brigittae-

My tank -

A koi pond at a LFS here -

Crazy co2 bubble. Hahaha...

Thats it for today.. I hope you guys have enjoyed this update. Stay tuned for more fun.

I was just wondering about you guys' taste about the updates. What do you prefer -
One photo updated daily.. or A lot of them every 10-15 days ?

Wow... newbie here & just caught up on this journal. Amazing tank. Loving your plant choices, your fish are incredibly sexy!!!

Are you going to try and breed your Dario hysginon?

Also how do you go about switching them from live to frozen? I have a group of Dario dario who I've beed feeding live bbs to. I'd love to switch them to something a bit easier. Any suggestions?

I say gives us your photo's and updates as ya have em! I am really enjoying this thread myself
