TIME FOR AN UPDATE BROTHER!
|03-10-2014 01:34 AM|
not really an update on the tank itself, but here is a shot of one of my first successfully raised kribensis fry from that tank.
My lens is not appropriate for taking photos of these small fry. These dudes are about 2 months old, and just over 1/2" in length. this is just one of around 12 fry I have growing out in a 10g.
I have 1 lone fry from the previous batch, around 1/4". And the mom is going to be depositing eggs any day now.
and a crappy group shot of some of them.

For that reason I have a fan running 24/7 to keep air moving. since this room isn't finished i have access to the 6" or so behind the finished wall, so the fan is leaning up against this opening and blowing air towards the laundry room, which is big and dry thanks to the oil heater.
so far there has been no growth on the wood; but i've noticed some on the concrete block. I might clean out the area a bit back there and hit it up with some drylok

I'm not very concerned about the wood... if it starts rotting, which i doubt it will, it just means I've an opportunity to get a bigger tank in there while I fix it

|kevreh||Nice build, I always like to see built-in tanks. Make sure you seal that wood, moisture and raw wood... not the best thing.|

$50 later and i'm in business... now to pull the trigger on that amazon order.

|HunterX||Great looking tank Scape! Lets get that conroller going !|

i'll take a look at that screening. Still debating whether or not I really care. The killies are more getting themselves into the overflows more than out of the tank. I keep fishing one female out of the outlet overflow, and another from the sump... pain in the butts
|12-28-2013 06:24 PM|
scape, two fish I'd like to see you try...
Haplochromis sp. "flameback"
Haplochromis sp. "ruby"
I've had them both and they are not so crazy....
Also, search for "clear aquarium netting"....in 1/4".....mounted like window screen on a window screen frame, it fits inside the top molding on the tank and stops jumpers
|12-28-2013 05:17 PM|
the killies are slowly offing themselves... they're quite the jumpers.
I have a small handful of Jae barbs coming in; which are a small, 1.5", rarer african community fish. It's looking like i'll get around 6. i'm hoping to breed them in my breeding tanks and raising the fry. I'd love to place around 50-60 in the tank.
also keeping an eye out for a pair of ctenopoma ansorgii

|dewalltheway||Your tank & setup looks great.|
|12-28-2013 12:48 PM|
Man, loving your congos. When they reach full size, oh man they are a fish to behold.
What's your current stock? And are you still thinking of staying african community? There are a few african fish that I keep that have been working super nicely with plants and other fish that make a large community, namely smaller upper jaw bichirs and rope fish, as well as ctnepoma and african knife fish, and I presume/have seen african butterfly fish work as well.
