kwheeler91 Salvinia minima is a much less annoying floater. I once introduced duckweed on purpose... took me a weeeks to get every last piece.

Not entirely sure. It's just duckweed. I would love some less invasive floaters, but the shrimp certainly seemed to like them.

While in theory, I agree with you. But the crypts were so tall I could no longer see in the tank. Love the overgrown look, as long as I can still check on the health of the inhabitants.

I agree with you. Except, that in the last year and a half it had gotten so completely over grown, you couldn't see any of the wood or rock work anymore. And the crypts roots were spread so far across the tank, everything had to be removed to pull out the 14 inch tall stragglers that were becoming my foreground.

tomfromstlouis I wonder if removing much of the leaf litter means that more shrimp will become dinner? Whatever, love the tank, the rockscape, the gouramis.

As for George's mate, I suggest "Martha."

jmf3460 HOLY SMOKES I love the new scape!

Pooky125 Rescaped!

Pooky125 I suspect they both are. They're pretty small, barely over an inch long. It looks like most of the clutch got eaten over night by the sparkling gourami who's hanging out in the tank, but dad is being VERY protective over what's left. The sparkler and the female are now living in the back of the tank, behind the wood and plants, letting dad have the front to tend to the eggs that are left prowl around chasing shrimp. I doubt I'll have any survivors this round, but he's doing an excellent job tending to them, all things considered. Hopefully the next time they breed, I can have the sparkling gourami out of there, my microworm culture in full swing, and be a little more prepared for them.

Robotponys Nice tank! That was some fast action... But I'm guessing he's a first time parent which could be problematic. Good luck!

Pooky125 LOL. Thanks! My SLR is bordering on ancient, but we still do ok sometimes, considering I have no external flash.

Pooky125 Welp, sat down next to my tank today after doing a load of dishes, and noticed George guarding a small nest of bubbles. Laughed, and wondered if it was intentional or not, when the unnamed female came up, they embraced and eggs were layed. He's still going at it, scoping up the egg and putting them back into the nest. I don't know how many are in there, and I'm not going to go through any great efforts to save this first batch of eggs, as I figure they'll be more. Still. For just over 24 hours in the tank, I call that pretty impressive. Go George.
