    How to cultivate microworms

    EricV is right. They do just fine in containers without air holes! I have a few cultures and it's actually easier to scrape them off the lid as they're cleaner and won't escape through the holes.

    Keeping up with the fry

    Very cute. I usually see more cories with the curved spines than guppies. I only got a handful of fry too this time from my guppies. I do have a few baby mollies too

    Important Slimy the booger visits my aerator

    Sounds like algae to me. And fish poop. Just the usual stuff you find when you clean your filter. And if you're referring to an air pump remember to use a check valve or have the main unit a over water level.

    Ich and bristlenose?

    It's actually a Blue Planet product called Multi Cure. Contains Malachite Green, Methylene Blue and Acriflavine. Supposed to treat white spot (ich) and velvet something and other fungal infections. So yeh, pretty standard but doesn't contain formaldehyde which I would imagine is not very nice...

    Ich and bristlenose?

    Thanks for the heads up regarding the API Pima and Melafix. I thought it was a bit too vague in the description to be an effective ich treatment, but always worth asking about

    Brine shrimp hatchery

    You get the tom one from Amazon if that helps. Fairly reasonably priced too. I ended up getting the NT one and seems to work ok. Big plus being not needing additional heat source.

    Ich and bristlenose?

    Yeh thanks for the info. Will have to stick with medication then as that is what I've started with. Plus I read somewhere bristle nose can't take the heat. Anyone know if the Pimafix and Melafix by API are any good? Not for this time, but next time I might try it if any good. Apparently made...

    well, cories done it again.

    My betta wouldn't play nice with my guppies - kept nipping their tails. So he's on his lonesome in a rather small and plain looking betta tank. He's survived over 2 years now so I guess he really doesn't need company. Plus I don't think he'd get any food if he had to share with my livebearers...

    well, cories done it again.

    Mine are in a community tank with a bunch of guppies, mollies, neon tetras... The best way to breed is to make sure they're fed (algae wafers do the trick for mine), and wait for rain then do a cold water change. I've got a video up on youtube of my randy cories...

    How old is your guppy?

    I'm pretty sure all my original guppies died from just over 2 years ago. But their fry or grandfry and greatgrandfry are going strong!

    well, cories done it again.

    My bronze cories bred not too long ago. I have heaps of fry! At least 30. Impossible to count until they're bigger. Currently have them in a breeding HOB box with some cherry shrimp and guppy and molly fry. They seem to do ok eating microworms and finely crushed flake.

    Cherry Shrimp Laying Eggs, What Do I Do?

    The eggs should be yellow to green in colour and she should have them tucked under her tail. They take about a month to hatch and if she drops them, they probably won't hatch.

    Ich and bristlenose?

    So I have ich in my 165L (roughly 40G I presume?) and I have bristlenose as well as mollies, guppies, platies, neon tetras and corydora, So should I just stick to medication (multi-cure) or should I raise the temp a little to help it along?

    How to cultivate microworms

    If you use Gumtree in Australia, you can often find microworm starter cultures. I bought one the other day Now I'm going to start my own cultures off the initial one. I find a bit of cotton wool in the hole keeps other things out and some of the smell in.

    What to do with sinking wafers?

    I started feeding them fairly recently but they didn't seem to notice it. I guess I'll throw a few in each day at a time I'm not feeding them algae wafers and see if they figure it out. I can't remember what they're made of but guessing it has the usual fish meal etc.

As for how big a pump...
