Is your tap that high in pH? In Renton I am having to add Aquavitro Mineralize to get my kH up as my tank was sitting at 6.0pH and 1* kH. I hear this area ranges a lot.
Yeah i'd say it costs me pennies a week to run it. I'm sold on it!

How long did it take for your HC to really take off?

Very cool tank. What were you trying to spawn the psuedomugils or cpds?

I did spawn the psuedomugils often over many weeks but all the eggs never produced in my separate 2 gallon tank I had set up. There were several reasons I think behind that but I stopped after one of the females died from over "active" males in the tank.

My favorite fish in the tank though is the CPD's and I would love to try and spawn them!

It shouldnt be hard to breed the CPDs provided you have males and females. I had six in my last tank and couldnt get them to stop..lol. The fry will have plenty of places to hide in your tank as well. Love the setup, plants look incredible!

I currently have 4 CPD's and I'm fairly certain that at least one is female do to there different sizes and the "chasing" that goes around in the tank. Either way did you have something for them to spawn on or is that not necessary for CPD's.

Thanks about the plants, they are very healthy and have to be cut back weekly to keep up with the growth.

Unfortuatley when i started buying Anubias Petite Nana only 2 out of the 7 I bought (from 3 different sellers) were really Petite...so many people trying to pass of smalller versions of Anubias as Petite Nana and there not. Oh well I still like the look I just wanted to have the smallest plant possible for the look.
