Oh, i have plenty Van, thanks for the offer. I just realized that i had my co2 set higher than normal, and i was dosing normally, so i turned the co2 back down a tad. Everything should be back to normal in a week or two.

My CRS are finally breeding....and quickly.
I did a huge cull of the cherrys that share the tank and all of a sudden I saw juvie CRS.
I'm pretty sure the main problem was they were being outcompeted for food....kinda embarrasing - lol

now i just feed more often and get rid of the cherries when it gets overrun.

I know...i think i even offered them to you first... sry about that. Havent had much time for my tanks or anything else lately. They're overgrown and/or overpopulated.
Still have lots but they're not great for the most part. If you want to take a drive you can have as many as I can net before I get annoyed with it.

I add the culls to my other tanks. Some get eaten but the rest do a great job of keeping the plants and tank clean

Have about 20 CRS now only counting the juvies and adults. have about a dozen babies and expect 2/3 to make it based on the last spawn.

Hello All,

I have 10 M. Parva for sale. Two are guaranteed males. All fish are between 2-2.5 inches. Would make a PERFECT breeding group for someone trying to raise them.

They are rare and seldom offerred for sale. When they are, they are pricey. I got mine from a breeder on Aquabid.

The reason I'm selling is I thinned out my 150 Gallon tank and decided to keep only my Bosemanii's as Rainbows.

All are healthy and eating great.

Price: $75.

Pick up Only in Westchester PA.

I am started up a 55 planted tank and all I have in the way of plants are the following:

Amazon Sword
A bunch of crypts (undulata, and wenditi (too mixed together to seperate))
some dwarf sag (ended up growing to two feet tall...)
an anubias
and a bunch of duckweed

I am looking to trade/buy just some plants and mosses for my new tank, I could trade you all of the dwarf sag I have and a few of the other things I have around (a couple tens and a bunch of chemicals). PM me with any offers.

P.S. I have co2 and ferts so there are not really any limitations. Also, I live in Warminster and am willing to drive far.
