I really like your tank, and raising fry is the best part of the hobby Do you run co2 on this?

Thanks, I agree there is nothing like watching those tiny fry hunt down their food and grow! I'm running 2 gallon bottles of DIY CO2, but it seems (from the un-trustworthy drop checker) the plants are mopping it up as fast as I can inject it, I might have to add a few more bottles...

Fill it about 1/3 full with warm water (not too warm) and then dissolve the following by shaking: I usually add approximately 1 TSP of yeast, 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups sugar, a few drops of de-chlorinator, 1 TBS baking soda. Fill it up to about 3/4 full with more warm water. It usually produces strong for 3-4 weeks.

The fry from that ridiculous spawn hatched out today, It looks like nearly all of the borelli eggs hatched, and once again, just a few of the T. candidi eggs hatched, maybe a half dozen. The Borellis have a lot more pigment to the yolk. Here they are:
