Mesh, pantyhose, sponge. It is function over form. Something that is necessary when attempting to save precious endangered
Iives.

You know what, I wasn't able to successfully remove the CPD fry from the situation I mentioned above with them making the filter media their new home.

It's happened a couple of times now. I don't really know how to overcome two major problems:

1) how to stop ALL fry from somehow getting into my filter

2) how to extract any that DO get into the filter media without killing these fruit-fly (or smaller) sized fry without crushing them

I guess I could cover my glass intake tube with some sort of mesh, but that would negate my purchase of a nice clean glass fixture.

Great looking tank. Looks well stocked and simple. If you get your CPDs to breed, consider trying to breed them out and sell them to members to help out the endangered wild population.

I haven't updated in a while so I taught I'd post some pics.

I've actually been neglecting this tank lately, other than replacing the floss in my prefilter. I haven't been fertilizing in quite some time, I haven't trimmed in a while, and my CO2 ran out over a month ago.

But..... Everything's fine! No over abundance of algae, no abnormal deaths, no yellowing plants... It's like it's self sufficient...

Here are some pics...

So, apparently, my CPD's have bred.. These are currently in my prefilter...

Waiting for them grow robust enough or sturdy enough to handle extraction. I still don't know how in gonna go about it. I don't really know how many are in there... We'll see. I'll post pics when it's done.

Still haven't figured out whst to do with the corner behind the driftwood, plant wise....

No.. Haven't been having too much luck with them breeding. Not sure abut sexing. I've heard stories of people buying 6 or 8 and not having any breeding until adding an additional 2 or 3 (indicating they had all the same sex initially).

Not saying that's happening to me, but there's 5 in there now, and I have Netlea Lambo, which is specifically used for CRS for its pH lowering ability. All my parameters are good, any my fire reds are berrying. So I don't know what's going on.

Some have said it my be my 6 CPD's presence. Beats me...

Yes. Paintball setup. I just ran out actually. Considering 2.5# tank both for longer intervals between refills, and height restriction in my cabinets.

So, any recommendation on the plants anyone?

Cento Okay, so this weekend I'm gonna tackle that corner behind the driftwood.

Any recommendations on what to place there? I guess I should have something tall in order to complete the "triangle" aquascaping style... Crypt? Some sort of tall grass? Or maybe some stem plant that'll complement the setup?

Cento Finally got around to buying some moss and attaching it to my driftwood.

Here's a pic or two...

I will need to fill in the back right corner a bit so as not to leave the wood too alone, and also not to through off My focal point for the angular rock. I hope this helps tighten the scape up a bit...
