Well, I kinda hope these are the only fry I get from the Columbian Tetras - lol. It was not planned and as much as I like them, I didn't want them in ALL my tanks One day I just happened to look behind my Mattenfilter in the 125, and there they were. Now my Celebes Rainbows are another matter. Once I get my 55 & 90 set up and move the Columbians out of the 40B, the 40B will be just for the Celebes - which are crammed in a 29 with Tiger and Rosy Barbs. The barbs never bother anyone and ignore the Celebes, but the 29 used to for the Celebes only. The barbs were put there "temporarily", but temporarily doesn't seem to work for me. I think the Celebes would like more swimming room (hence them to the 40B) and my barbs will stay in the 29. I only have eight Celebes, but they are so darned expensive now (more than tripling in price since I got mine) that I'm going to make the 40B as spawning friendly as I can. I think I will call it the Celebes Love Shack - lol.

Oh, and before any of you think my water is muck, here's a pic I took of the water in a white cup. As you can see the water has only a light tinge - normal tank water color, I think. I still am amazed water that looks like this, turned my stocking so pink! lol



DarkCobra, if you hadn't done the substrate dyeing experiment and hadn't taken the time to read my thread, I would still be in the dark! Amazing (scratches head - lol)
