so i took off the lock line return, put on a hydro flo i had "laying around",it looks good. i realy love these things a lot really helps circulation.
Plants are going good. i got 12 CPD in their now all doing very well they where a little skittish to begin with but are getting more bold. been reading over on celestialpearldanio.com
to find out how to breed them doesn't look that hard but i never had a lot of luck breeding any thing but livebearers and shrimp... still going to try, once they get settled in.
i am seeing 4 or 5 cherry shrimp in their now and it looks like the female is berried, i might order 15 more to jump start things a little. but they are like red cockroaches, so i might just wait with only 4 it would be easier to isolate any "super red" genes than add some others later to help my colony's blood line.
only things that's gone wrong so far is that i have little bits of caldo
. the algae that i h8 more than all others. I have nightmares about the stuff. the strands are small and seem to only on the HM that i have so i pulled the infected ones out hopefully i got it all .
The other thing that went wrong was the bulb i got from dr. fosters was broken/doa to me like 10 min to find out what was wrong. their was a TINY crack in it. even that is not a big deal they are send me anther one for no charge, just got to wait like a week.
All in all this tank has been one of the most problem free tank set ups hopefully it keeps going like this.
feel free to comment. i won't bite and would like some feed back if any one has any ideas or suggestions.
i am still looking for some one to build the "X" for the top so if any one reading his would like to help me send me a pm.
