    To add to the tank list I have also a 20g heavily planted tank with a Male and female german blue rams a Male betta, 5 kuhli loaches. 2 whisper 10 hobs (soon to be upgraded) kept at 82f. Parameters are 0 ammonia 0 nitrates 5ppm nitrates ph is 6.4. Last but not least a 3.5 g betta tank. Set up with cycled sponge yesterday in emergency rehome. To be planted up today and kept a close eye on. 10g quarantine tank inhabited by 2 juvenile keyholes. Cycled topfin power filter 10. Only floating plants. O ammonia, 0 nitrites, nitrates 10. Ph 7.0

    I try to keep my tanks as natural as possible, and moderately to heavily planted. All but the quarantine tank have a good amount of mopani and spiderwood in, with various anubias, java fern and java moss attached. I also have a lot of floating wisteria, water Sprite, in the fry tank I also have duckweed. I also grow Amazon swords, crypts, jungle val, wisteria, water Sprite and hornwort in the substrate.

    I breed Angels as a hobby, I also have 2 bonded pairs of german blue rams, which I hope will start breeding soon. The platys weren't meant to breed, but, they did too. That ended up with a 55g divided, for Angel fry and platy fry. I am seriously in need of another, larger grow out tank!
