Hi KenP... if things go well then we will definitely need more tanks... and conversely if we have some early losses I think we may have a water quality issues.. You raise a good point and I need to give some thought for when the time comes.


I have far more zoes this time around and am also thinking about sticking a bit more to the original strategy (in 2012) where some successes were achieved (as all the mating amano and zoes are from my tank bred, from the first attempt)

With this in mind (and the risk that this new method will not guarantee results) I have ground down some Spirulina into warm water and added 5ml solution into the phyto mix.

Re Phyto ... I am now also thinking that I should change some water every two days (as last time I left if ages between changes). You may well be right in suggesting the phyto will grow as some is eaten and therefore by stepping up the frequency of changes (although in small 1lt quantities) the phyto will have more opportunity to grow also.

Yeah good point...


Last time I did periodic water changes... so it is definatley a good idea of yours.
