Tank now, have to cut the Alternanthera reineckii it has grown but didn't do so well while I was away for Xmas.

Update

The official count is 25 fry, I relocated 13 fry maybe 3 weeks ago and another 12 today. They are going into my 27G tank with their mommy and two daddies.

In other news... I now have shrimps in the tank, low grade cherries. Added 10 3 weeks ago, and already I have 3 berried females, I just hope I didn't scare them so bad, when I was hunting the fry, that they dropped the eggs. I'll post a picture next week after I do a trim, don't want to do a trim now, I want to let the shrimpies relax a little first

Growth is not fast in this tank, I don't have CO2 and I don't really put in ferts or Excel. I don't do water changes very often and only add ferts when I do do water changes, mainly I do top offs.

I know I feel ashamed

peachii I love cories as well, one of my favorite fish - the fry are so cute. Good luck on the pygmies hatching.

Tank looks great, good job on putting it together.

A new video of the cory fry, I tried to shoot the whole tank but the camera in my phone didn't want to focus so I edited it out

Thanks
The substrate is from a Belgian company called flamingo, I don't know if you can get it in the States, here is a link to the product on their site
The little balls roll all over if you drop some on the floor, lots of fun cleaning up

Well I live in Iceland so you can definitely get it a lot cheaper! I paid around 74$ for it, with polished edges. Keep in mind that EVERYTHING is very expensive here, I would have bought a readymade tank if I only could find it here! nothing but ugly expensive acrylic tanks here!

The specs are:
outside measurements are 250x250x300 MM that is 10x10x12" aprox.
Cut and polished glass is:
bottom 238mm x 238 mm
front and back 250 mm x 300 mm
sides 238 mm x 300 mm
the glass is 6mm thick.
make sure to get a good "gun" for the tube of silicone, mine broke down in the middle of glueing, I had to do a lot of cleaning up after I put the tank together.
I'll definitely make another one later though

terrapedes I think some of the eggs have hatched, but I can't see the fry yet, I think I need to go out and get a magnifying glass. I'm rescuing eggs almost every day now, 4-5 a day these last few days, I hope at least some of them survive.
