Very nice tank, the black substrate goes really well with the fish's color. Sorry for the ignorance, is that a shell dweller cichlid? In what tank are you keeping it? And btw the big clump of moss was java moss right? It was so healthy!
Holy cow, Jaysee has a planted tank. LOL!
Aww, she's like a betta LOL Henri, if I remember correctly, she's a pink convict, that was a brat in another tank.
That's such a pretty tank! Where did you get that little house decoration?
I have 3 species of plants, 2 in that tank And yes, I have java moss coming out my ears. It's in at least half of my tanks now. It's a female pink convict and a 10 gallon tank. She was too aggressive for the 55, so that's her home. She's killed almost all the MTS in the tank. She made that pile of shells in the corner of the tank. The house was a petsmart purchase, IIRC.
Omg really a 10 gallon? Is that her permanent home?
yes it is. If I happen to find a 15 I might get it, but otherwise that's it.
Oh so a convict can work in a 10 gallon... Heheh thank you, I have an empty one sitting around 3. Btw what lights are you using? The moss is thriving...
A *female* convict that did not receive proper nutrition in the developmental stages and is stunted because of it, can live in a 10 gallon. She grew up in a 75 and 55, so it certainly wasn't a lack of space that contributed to her small size. She was meant to be a feeder and somehow survived. I just put in a new light that has a pink hue to it. I like it because it really shows her colors well. Before that it was a standard light. As far as I know, java moss thrives no matter what.
Didn't she beat up everything in your other tanks? ;D Cichlids are awesome!
Nice moss, it looks really cool. Pile of shells has kind of a dark humor about it...love the substrate.
Yes, including the knife, bichir, ctenopoma in the 75 and the chanchitos (10 times bigger), tiger barbs and loaches in the 55. She's the first fish that I've named.
Her name is not fishlore friendly
Hense the "no no" smiley, and then the giggly one LOL
But how did you know??
Its not that hard of a guess XD
How big is she?
I bet you couldn't guess it 2 inches
