Eggs eggs eggs my fish laid eggs!!! Ok angelfish. But even with their egg laying there are no problems in that tank. Parents seem to be taking care of the eggs and water change isn’t till wed so we will see
Beautiful tank and fish! That’s a really striking GR Rainbow, too!Eggs eggs eggs my fish laid eggs!!! Ok angelfish. But even with their egg laying there are no problems in that tank. Parents seem to be taking care of the eggs and water change isn’t till wed so we will see
I meant to say B Rainbow, 86 ssinit, but had Goyder Rivers on my mind as I had shown mine to a friend who stopped by a little earlier. I finally got another BosemanI to replace the on I lost when the heater malfunctioned, but bought local, so mine isn’t nearly the brilliant orange yay your’s is. I was trying to figure out what the Golden Wonder KillI fish were! From what I’ve learned here about Angels, you needn’t worry if this clutch (?) of eggs goes bad - there will be more to replace them soon! Yikes! You’ll need more tanks!Lol yeah I think the loaches will be feasting. But as of now the parents are doing there job. Though most of the eggs are turning white.
Barbara only rainbows are the bosemani. I have 3 in there. There are 2 Buenos arias tetras in ther3 and a golden wonder killI fish.
Ah well, if the pair are serious, they’ll spawn again, and again..... LOL! I’d love to find even one BosemanI hiding in the Wisteria!! I split it up between 3 tanks, and cleaned all 3 since adding the plants, and haven’t seen any. But the, I got a brain storm to make an incubator box for the egg pods my Golden Mystery snails had laid, which was too much of a success - so I left the last few pods in the tank with the Silver Dollars, BosmanI and Australian Rainbows about a month ago, figuring any that hatched and dropped into the water would get eaten. I just found a few, about the size of a pea, on the glass this morning - so who knows! So, there’s hope for my young Bosmani! The one I lost had been adopted as an adult, and was probably a little more than 5” - and he was a deep orange like yours. I’m patient..... Gotta go take a magnifying glass to the Wisteria tanks!Yes that duckweed grows like crazy!!! As to the eggs they’re gone. I’m not planning on keeping fry. I now have 6 bosemanI fry. All of different ages. Seems they come whenever I move plants out of the community tank. Check the top of whatever tank the westeria is in you may have some in there. Just found 2 tiny ones in my shrimp tank this week. Also bosemanI take at least a year to color up and years to look like the one in my tank. That guy is at least 5.
Lol! Yes, too much of a good thing can become a problem! In my case I will use the duckweed as a sustainable food ‘crop’ for my (mostly) herbivore Silver Dollars - who loved the frogbit I naively bought and put in their tank, thinking it would grow faster than they could ‘graze’ it down. Wrong! Gone in 60...oh, wait, that was a movie....but all the frog bit was gone in a couple days! I had put some in other tanks, too, but it doesn’t grow as fast as duckweed, hence my deep appreciation for getting some duckweed from 86 ssinit (and yes I’ve put all I can find in my guppy tankI've decided I hate duckweed. The problem is that it creates such a dense covering nothing beneath it can get light. This is great for the fishes looking for shade; but lousy for the plants struggling to grow. I do have to say it grows amazingly fast in the guppy tank. Then again the frogbits grows pretty darn fast. I almost think it is water let. This stuff (both forgbits and duckweed) love the guppies. It doesn't really grow well in any other tank I have.... but the guppy tank....
I started with 2” discus . It’s long but if you go to the beginning you can see them from when I got them till now . The little blue fish are electric blue rams from coral bandit. I got those on Tuesday and have to say they acclimated to my water almost instantly . I kept them in a 5 gallon qt tank for only 3 days. Moved them in with discus after 2 pairs layed eggs in 5 gallon. Now have a pair of golds watching the eggs (just in case). Great dither fish that get along great with the discus. They stay mostly on the bottom so whatever food gets under the discus they get.
I remove 60 gallontwice a week and gravel vac the whole 60. Yes allways more by the intakes. Not worried about bacteria in the substrate. There’s plenty in the filters and with the constant water changes the water is allways good .
Lol that’s a big tank!!
Spoken like a man who has been seriously bitten!I'll most likely go with 3 feet wide and 23 inches tall. I plan on leaving 2 feet behind the tank so I can get a stool behind to do whatever from the back. The room will be 16 feet wide so I can put tanks against both walls (leaving 2 feet behind them) and still have 6 or 7 feet free down the middle of the room. I look at my 120 (which is 2x4); and i'm not too serious about having 4 feet wide but I know 2 feet wide is not enough for these plants. Given the space they would love 2 feet width each.
And, I’ve gotta say that coralbandit ’s EBR’s color outshines the discus!I started with 2” discus . It’s long but if you go to the beginning you can see them from when I got them till now .

Well, maybe the Bandit should put a disclaimer on his rams that they like to breed like rabbits?! I was so tempted to choose a couple of his rams for my Xmas prize, but was afraid they couldn’t take the 90F temp my large Discus tank was set at back then. I’ve since been able to get the Discus used to 84F, but it was a sloooow process! Just in time to get some of the little Santarems, though, and when the guppies are gone I’ve got their tank earmarked for EBR’s!Yes unbelievable color. Those weren’t even what I wanted he threw those in. The golds are still in qt. Because both the gold pair and the blue pair laid eggs on day 2 in qt. Unfortunately all eggs eaten . Though I am glad . I had no idea what to do with them. But his rams adjusted to my tanks instantly. I mean those blues were up there fighting with the discus at first feeding . They fit in like they belong! Just great fish!
