That was grown in an outdoor tub with some full sun, I'm betting it dies in my tank. But thanks.
I saw the coolest above ground pond kit with windows at Lowes today for $240 down from $398.

Probably, but in a 5 gallon if she wants to go after them bad enough eventually she'll corner them.

I haven't done a headcount, but counting fry I have at least 30, maybe more like 40, but that number keeps going up. If everyone who has expressed interest actually gets some it might take me another couple months to do this, but barring catastrophes I can do it.

I'm in 10462, about a 10 minute walk to east tremont ave, though I'm closer to the 2 or 5 train. If anyone is coming from Manhattan I highly recommend the express bus. NYers generally hate buses but the express bus is miles better than a regular bus or the train in terms of comfort and proximity to my house.

Just thought I'd give and update. They are the cutest little fish in the world! lol!


here they are, temporarily in my 1.5g jungle. They do seem to love the messy plants. I noticed that they pick at the roots of the floaters.

The tank hasn't been inhabited for a while by fish, and planaria has become over run in it. However, they dont seem to express the slightest interest in devouring the planaria....

All in all, thank you so much

Mine aren't with the scuds. I'd imagine they'd eat baby scuds though.
