I just moved my ember tetra in a standalone tank in the hope of breeding them. From what i gathered to be successful ember tetra needs warm water 27C or 80F approx, soft acidic water Ph around 6.7 and some plants. I also read that to be successful its better to have a mesh box with a...
Hello, I have had a pretty good experience with rainbowfish though accidentally breeding them. I had java moss in my main tank and around 3 pairs of dwarf rainbowfish. Long story short i had transferred some java moss to my shrimp tank where around 3 days later i noticed the tiniest of fry...
I have added the Tetra active substrate to the setup, added the plants, added co2 and currently misting twice per day.
So far so good. I'm waiting for the roots to grow before adding water, i'm hoping that around 1 week i can completely submerge it.
I added charcoal due to its benefits in outdoor gardening . I think it may be useful in the aquarium world as well . It will (hopefully) provide carbon to the roots and some beneficial nutrients (im a total amateur regarding the chemical composition).
I initially plan to have plants in it in...
1 Bladder Snail! Isn't it the one which can multiply very quickly and takeover your tank. I would be careful with that. Add a nerite snail instead, it eats only algae and will help you keep your glass clean. Bonus there a patterned nerite snails available which looks stunning.
I have a small population of ember Tetra which i would like to breed. I've tried searching for content but no luck so far.
I have a couple of questions:
How to identify male and female? (for tetra the female is usually larger, does this apply here?)
Whats the setup you require for...
i'm starting a new setup with an undergravel filter. I have lava rocks on the sides of the undergravel filter and I'm using coco peat and charcoal, + a sprinkle of JBL Florapol as 1st layer substrate. I'll be topping up with Tetra active substrate.
Im trying to achieve a nutrient and Iron rich...
You could also use some root tabs near the roots. From the picture above I feel like you are using regular gravel (l could be wrong here). I don't know about wisteria but Amazon Sword are heavy root feeders, having nutrients by their roots is definely a must , I learned this the hard way :v.
That seems to be like an infection of some sort under the scales. Have you tried the regular medication (API Melafix, Pimafix)? They contains untifungal properties which might help.
Good luck and keep us updated.
While i do not know the lifecycle of ich in open air, i have had success with an aquarium heater which got rid of all ich.
Between since u tore everything out try putting hot water over eveything that should help things out.
Hope that helps, good luck. Keep us updated :)
