I think some of the eggs have hatched, but I can't see the fry yet, I think I need to go out and get a magnifying glass. I'm rescuing eggs almost every day now, 4-5 a day these last few days, I hope at least some of them survive.
Hey, how much did the glass cost you? What are the specs on the sheets of glass you used? I want to see if I can get an estimate also.
Well I live in Iceland so you can definitely get it a lot cheaper! I paid around 74$ for it, with polished edges. Keep in mind that EVERYTHING is very expensive here, I would have bought a readymade tank if I only could find it here! nothing but ugly expensive acrylic tanks here!
The specs are:
outside measurements are 250x250x300 MM that is 10x10x12" aprox.
Cut and polished glass is:
bottom 238mm x 238 mm
front and back 250 mm x 300 mm
sides 238 mm x 300 mm
the glass is 6mm thick.
make sure to get a good "gun" for the tube of silicone, mine broke down in the middle of glueing, I had to do a lot of cleaning up after I put the tank together.
I'll definitely make another one later though
What is your substrate??? It looks pretty cool, as does the rest of your tank!
The substrate is from a Belgian company called flamingo, I don't know if you can get it in the States, here is a link to the product on their site
The little balls roll all over if you drop some on the floor, lots of fun cleaning up
The official count is 25 fry, I relocated 13 fry maybe 3 weeks ago and another 12 today. They are going into my 27G tank with their mommy and two daddies.
In other news... I now have shrimps in the tank, low grade cherries. Added 10 3 weeks ago, and already I have 3 berried females, I just hope I didn't scare them so bad, when I was hunting the fry, that they dropped the eggs. I'll post a picture next week after I do a trim, don't want to do a trim now, I want to let the shrimpies relax a little first
Growth is not fast in this tank, I don't have CO2 and I don't really put in ferts or Excel. I don't do water changes very often and only add ferts when I do do water changes, mainly I do top offs.
