klibs Amazing tank man

I love the visual impact of having the right side bare. Just a grass carpet over there would look amazing!

scapegoat Thanks.

The Kribs are doing fantastic. They've stopped breeding though. I think it's because their choice of cave location fell in. I'm selling a bunch of plants around that area and will fix their cave to get them spawning again.

they're also sharing the tank with an apisto... need to find this guy a gal too.

there is still some there. and trimming it is a pain in the butt! the huge patch that was there ended up lifting and just ended up being such a pain to deal with.

scapegoat I find it very difficult to get a good shot of this tank. there is a lot of things to reflect off the glass, so I turn off all the lights. it doesn't help that the hygro is out of control. I'll be doing a water change and a hygro culling today and will take another shot.

The tank is coming into it's own now... but the right side is still relatively barren. I haven't found anything I liked there. I may break down and scoop that whole section of eco complete out and toss sand in.

HunterX Hey Scape,

TIME FOR AN UPDATE BROTHER!
03-10-2014 02:34 AM
scapegoat 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.

Crazy4discus Very nice setup!!

kevreh Be careful, mold can spread pretty easy. At the least spray a beach solution on the mold to kill it. A dehumidifier will help too.

yea definitely. we do have some mold issues in the basement. it does, sometimes, get a little musty smelling in the fish room.

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
