Looks good, the hairgrass really filled in quite well. Is your Ram one of those Ballon Rams?

the gold is a balloon.

updated - the regular german rams won't survive.. probably doesn't help that i got ich from the pet store.

picked up 2 kribensis, which i'm fairly sure are male and female.. time will tell when they're adjusted.. also picked up a flordia flag fish to hopefully help with some hair algae.. still trying to figure out the root cause

Picture of the female of the Krib pair, tried getting the male and 2 juveniles, but they are just too fast and camera shy at the moment.



She's in between the pot and plant, you can't see her much.. i'm trying to get better pics.


Edit: Just noticed.. you can see, albeit blurry shot of one of the juveniles at the top left hand..

Your tank is pretty sweet. Love the lawn!! How is your florida flagfish doing? Does it seem to help with the hair algae? You have it with RCSes right? Any trouble with the flagfish picking at them?

Cool tank! Your Ram looks so proud of himself in that pic up above, lol! Like he knows he's got the best tank on the block or something.

I also would like to know how the flagfish is working out for you.

Bump for new FTS 11-2-09

whickerda: thanks, it's a real pain in the ass though.. wish i went with HC but, at the time i didn't have the pressurized co2 to support it. sometimes it does look really nice though.

The flagfish honestly didn't work out, my guess is that he ended up having something from my LFS because he never ate any algae, or ANYTHING else for that matter, and god did I try everything. I eventually euthanized him because he just got so skinny and boney and I didn't want him to suffer anymore.

I did have him with some RCS, he never bothered anyone or anything at all though.

Church: I absolutely loved that ram when I had him. Other then the color being washed out in those pics, he really was that yellow. He had brilliant oranges too. BY FAR the best looking gold ram I had ever seen. He was however, exactly how you said "King of the Block". He would let nothing get into his territory, which was nearly the whole tank and I became interested in breeding Kribensis that I sold him. Even at my LFS in a 55 gallon tank with angels and other rams (GBR, gold and a bolivian) he flared at everything. I did get paid a good deal on him though.


On another note, as I mentioned before, trying to breed Kribs.. I've got a proven pair but I just can't seem to get them to breed. they've been in the tank about 2 months now, tried fattening them up on black worms, they obviously have a clay pot and plenty of cover.. but they just don't seem to do the deed. can anyone offer some insight?

Very nice kribs!

How long will you wait before moving the juvies to another tank?

not sure yet, probably soon.. there's a little territory bickering but that's few and far between, may end up just selling them honestly, i have a 10 gallon in the garage but it's not set up in any way at the moment. they are indeed offspring of the pair, i wish i could just get them to breed again.
