Rilly10 Do you know what variety you ended up getting? I am trying to piece together a second nano and would love a cluster of tiny Anubias!

Thanks, i found the wood at the a long time ago and thought, it will fit and it does. The Anubias was a mistake as I ordered Petite and this was a smaller variety but not Petite. Anyway it looks good even though it wasn't what I wanted.

I agree!


Since I think I have two males I want to put one in another tank and add a blue variety to go with the scarlet.

SeattleFishGuy I believe so yes but not 100% sure, talking to people who breed them say they vary a lot. Someone local has about a dozen they are going to try and breed, it will be interesting to see what happens.

Couesfanatic Did they turn out to be both males?

SeattleFishGuy Update:

Thought it was time for an update.

Besides the plants growing like weeds everything is fine in this tank. Still no co2, and I just add a little excel & Flourish during weekly water changes. No much algae to speak off, and I have never had to clean the glass. The two Dario Dario are doing great and I just feed them the mircoworms. There is one Nerite snail with a few other MTS. I did have some CRS in the tank but decided to move them.

Picture coming soon...

I got mine at a local LFS (Seattle), however Rachel (http://msjinkzd.com/) who is a forum Sponsor does have them.

SeattleFishGuy UPDATE:

So it's been two weeks since I brought home my Dario Dario and up until today everything has been going great. The first two days I tried different flake foods and frozen Blood Worms and Brine Shrimp but they weren't too interested so I now have them on Miro-Worms and they have been eating great and looking healthy. I also have kept up with my weekly 50% water change. However, today I noticed a black spot one of their tails, the fish is acting fine but i'm not sure if it's a healing wound or a sign of something else?

So I'm looking for suggestions here. I could add a little salt to the water but first thought i'd look for some feedback first.

Here is a picture (the best I could get) of the spot...

Thanks, let me tell you that when you're buying Anubias Petite Nana there are a lot of mislabeled plants...online and at LFS. Out of the 10 plants I bought at varies times only 2 plants were the more rare petite nana variety. The others grew bigger and so some of those landed in this tank and it still looks good.


The driftwood was found and has been in my sunroom for years so I boiled it soaked it and now it has a proper home.


Cheers!
