your CPDs bred?
unless you feed fry food, i doubt they will make it. i can send you a starter sample of microworms if you want (just pay the shipping). dump it in some culture medium (tons of recipes online) and in a few weeks youll be able to harvest. the adult CPDs will likely eat them too, i read that a bunch of breeders feed them to help condition for spawning.

Kiran, how do you like the RM OneStep?

Sorry, I didn't read the whole thread. Tank looks good, and so does your desk.

I've got some fry food that I'm going to start feeding. I mean, I had 2 from before that did okay until one got sucked up... so I'm just going to play it by ear.

Love it. The bottle makes it very convenient and I can fit it in a spot where I simply cannot forget to dose for the day.

Thanks!

I didn't feel like making a trip out before taking my pics for the IAPLC so I just used some pipe cleaners... what they're for, right? Be sure to bend back the tip so that the sharp point doesn't scratch them. Admittedly I made that mistake at first before quickly noticing

you sure you dont want some? its practically zero maintenance and fry do great on the stuff (not as great as on BBS, but you gotta feed em something til they get big enough to eat BBS).

I think I'll be alright, but thanks for the offer

I was thinking, guys, should I get an atomic diffuser for this tank? Or would it look weird?

lol, I have to clean the glass, and then I'm going to finalize my pictures to submit to IAPLC.

In fact -- I'm going to make this the BIGGEST update on this tank! Ever!

very nice.
love the intense green.

i noticed a CPD at the surface in many of the shots, is he gasping for air?
you do have a very calm surface, you might want to lift your lily pipe a little. the more O2 you have in the water, the more CO2 the fish will tolerate.
