Re: New Tank

Hi Owenodin

Your tank looks nice. Like the blue light you got going there. You're water is a bit hard, try to get it softer, but do it slowly and over a extended period of time. Weeks not hours.

I have bred them from 25*C up to 29*C and 27*C yields the best spawn size. I lowered the temp to 28.5*C for now and all occupants seems to be happy in this r...

The current substrate is fine Daro aquarium gravel. The problem with this gravel type is that some foods gets trapped in it and as a result of this...
