MTS incoming!

In conversation with my wife today... if I clean up the basement I can use the 75 gallon that’s just collecting dust in the garage down there! I’ve been talking about different projects that interest me, and that opens up a ton of possibilities! Guess what I’m doing today?!?

I always read MTS as Malaysian trumpet snail, but I'm guessing you will be filling a glass box with water soon. Got a direction you're considering?

I was considering dividing it in two, having some breeding experiments. Extremely low tech with sponge filters and easy plants. It’s a long ways off, but the basement is clean!

Cool, thoughts on species you might choose to work with?

Scarlet badis, a small gourami, or apistos are on my radar. I’ll put Ameca splendens in there as well. I’ve never had a parental care fish so apistos are really appealing.

Apistos are fun! I've messed with a few species, if you can get them home bred in the US, it's paramount. Pay the difference. If you can't find any, grow some up and spawn them for the 2nd generation. Imports don't seem to last long, from my own experience and several others I've talked to at the Charlotte Aquarium club. Subsequent generations are hardy and perfect though.
