This is my quarantine tank. I started this tank on 27 Dec 08. It is currently housing 10 male fry soon to be 5 (Found someone to take them). I think my females are finally finished flushing out (it has been about 8 months now).
** Santa dropped this off, Dec 2008.
** Gravel in, Water in, Heater on. I let that sit for a week while the filter is being seeded in my 30g. Pic-date: 28 Dec 08.
** Put in filter, a tennis ball size, lava rock and planted some plants. Some Ramshorn snails and some male fry went in. Brown algae was covering almost everything. Pic date: 7 Feb 09.
** Plant list: Anubias nana, Bacopa aquatica, Cryptocoryne x willisii, Bolbitis heudeloti (African Fern), Microsorum pteropus (Java Fern-very small one), Vesicularia montagnei (Christmas Moss).
** FTS (Full Tank Shot) 29 Mar 09.
After the recovery from the pH drop of 6.2 during the cycle, this tank has been doing great. I did lose one fry in the process.
