I put it up for $40 shipped a plate. Should be a good price considering the amount. If it doesn't go then I will bring it down.

Belem is gone now, E. Gilberti should be here soon. I'm excited to have these little fish.

Elassoma Gilberti are here. Got them acclimated and in the tank. I had one jumper so I put my glass lid on. Will take some pics when I can get them calmed down a bit. Sometime in the next few days.

Well I need to post an unfortunate update. One of the Gilberti came in with a speck on his fin. I treated with Maracyn and it seemed to slow it but all of the fish soon got it and passed. I think it was columnaris. I am in the process of cleaning up my tank to make sure this doesn't happen again. I ordered some Kanplex tonight, I hear good things about it.

On the other hand, the flow from the Vuppa is a little much for this tank. Anyone want it? $75 shipped. It does have some weird markings on the back only. I can provide pics.

I also have used aquasoil, the new stuff regular size. about a 1/3 bucket. Was used in my emersed setup.

Picked up some Borneowild Stainless pipes for $50 brand new. Im going back and forth whether or not to set up an ADA 60p or just keeping this one.

Things are growing in. Waiting for my next batch of Elassoma Gilberti to come in.

Growing in more. Elassoma Gilberti didn't work out so I went back to my old favorite, Scarlet Badis. Picked up a male at the Wet Spot today. I'm on the lookout for a female now.

Tossing the idea around of getting a 3 gallon long and trying to breed these fish if I can find a female.

Hacked it back pretty good tonight. Planning on throwing some red stems in the back right corner. Scarlet badis is doing awesome.

Some females have some little red stripes on them, so you have to wait until they are more comfortable to be really sure.

He's following the newcomer every time I watch them. It doesn't seem aggressive, time will tell. Fingers crossed.

The new Badis looks the same it did yesterday, no color change yet.

It was hilarious to watch the male when I introduced the new one. He colored up and was zipping around like crazy.

Sure.

I added a few stems of Rotala Rotundifolia and one stem of Ludwigia Red. The Ludwigia is growing much faster. The scarley badis ended up being a male unfortunately.

Best news of all!, I ordered a Mini M today, along with a lid, garden mat and do aqua lily pipes. I will be using the light and Eheim 2211 off of this tank, will be closing this tank down in a few weeks. Since I have no other tanks running right now, I will be trying to decide how I can jump start the mini m and move these fish over without the ammonia leaching.





The front fish is the one from the pictures above.

Best way to jump start would just be plant heavily with stems and do daily water changes. The same media will help speed it along too. But, definitely daily water changes for the first couple of weeks. Should help your tank have the easiest setup period. Throw some activated carbon in there too for even better chances. Love the fish and stems even if you're scrapping the tank, but it still looks great. Why not keep it as a 0 maintenance cherry shrimp tank or something with a sponge filter and a cheap clip-on light? The moss still looks great.

What are you feeding the scarlet badis? Any general tips for their care?
