I have otos in my tank and the rams lay their eggs right in oto territory. My ram parents are still fairly young and the male shows no signs of wanting to protect the babies. I think the mom is having a tough time protecting them on her own...

I just checked out that Alternanthera reineckii. I have pretty low light, so probably a no-go. But I do want to get my hands on some cyperus helferi! That plant looks like it will fit perfectly with my tank
Thanks for the suggestions
That's awesome, good luck with the third batch. Maybe there will be enough microorganisms living in there to support them for a little while. I've never had any fry in my tanks so I don't have experience, but maybe the fry would go for hikari first bites. They might not recognize it as food though. Hopefully the parents have learned a bit on taking care of the fry and something makes it through.

What kind of light do you have? Once you get some of the cyperus helferi be sure to post a picture of the tank if you can, I'd like to see how it looks in there.

this is my first planted tank, not real thickly planted yet, but I'll keep adding to it... battling algae right now though, might need to reduce my lights because algae went crazy when I put my new lights on this...

Those tanks look nice, freak and rininger85. Thanks for posting the pictures!

Freak, good luck with the switch to live plants, it can get addictive though lol. I've always liked the hardscape that you put in that tank.

Rininger85, those are some really cool pieces of driftwood, did you collect those yourself?

yes, my wife and I were headed to the B93 (radio station out of grand rapids) birthday bash (free concert they do every year) when we heard they had started turning away people because they had too many people show up, so we had already drove an hour from home so decided to drive another hour to hit lake Michigan, spent the day walking up and down beaches all along lake Michigan from Benton harbor to south haven and collected a bunch of driftwood, these had the most character out of all that I collected though.

I just realized that I haven't actually posted in this thread. Normally I take shots of part of my tank, so here are a couple of each:
