You know you want some Nick
They will change looks significantly between now and adulthood. I will love watching all the little stages of growth

Thanks All but one are eating out of my hand. The smaller blue diamond is a little shy still but will come around I'm sure.

Well Carol, I am late to the party but you go girl! I almost caved a few weeks back after seeing slugs discus. I had decided to get some and the very next day my Angelfish spawned again so I had to save room for them.

Congratulations!!! How are they doing now?
Just think of all the pictures and even video you can take of them as they grow to an ripe old age Don't be :camera: shy

Swervo513- I like algae on my rocks so I don't clean it off. I also only clean the insides of the front and end glasses. Leaving the back glass and rocks for the Bristlenose.
yes Kathy the fish and I are really enjoying each other. they think their suppose to be fed everytime I get close to the tank LOL.

I also keep some algae in specific tanks, e.g. with herbivorous fish in it. I am getting Nitrates to stay around 5ppm in my Snakeskin pair tank if I let it go a whole week without water change (I only did that once).

I had to downgrade the lighting since it was too much for the fish and the algae started to grow in places I didn't feel comfortable with (like glass walls).
