  1. Oh he is definitely a male but you may be right they was purchased about two months ago about dime sized I've been feeding black worms mosquito larvae bloodworms as well as live bbs. The female was definitely ready to lay swollen belly extended breeding tube but today she is back to normal so im assuming they ate the eggs
  2. Yeah all my anubias grows like weeds supposed to be slow growing but I get an inch a month lol
  3. Hello I currently have 3 gbrs in a 30 gallon flex heavily planted with a mixture of florite sand and flourish. These 3 are very active and the male can't seem to make up his mind who he wants to breed with the females have thier breeding tube extended and have cleaned every rock and dug pits all over the tank. But when it comes down to the buesness the two females start going at it for what I'm assuming is breeding rights. I do have line of sight blocks for them but they never really breed after the bickering starts with the femals. Would it be better if I take one female out so they could complete the task or just let them be?
  4. Hello I've recently got some great specimens of German blue rams 1 male and 3 females. The tank is perfect for them in every way planted really well good substrate, good filtration, botanicals, driftwood,and almond leaves. Well my thing is they started making pits to start laying eggs after feeding the tank with live baby brineshrimp for two days ( thanks Dean and Cory) but now I'm paranoid because I have a unnumberable amount of Malaysian trumpet snails living in the substrate and they come out in droves when food is in the tank. So will they eat my GBRS eggs before they can hatch? The rams eat at them all the time but I'm thinking thier is just too many for them to not be overwhelmed. So is this a genuine concern or not? Thanks for all the help
  5. It was planted it the stratum sand was a small bit for ascetic reasons but just a smallayer in the front that the amono shrimp had a ball covering up im going with a dwarf type of sword it has roots no rysome. I'm going to replant it and see
  6. The white powdery stuff was a small cap of sand that got covered and as far as root tabs its a 5 gallon aquarium so I put 1 every two inches under 2 inches of stratum I use the flourish root tabs
  7. Yes I feed easy green and I also have root tabs as well a fluval stratum but as soon as I planted the roots it started melting away and as soon as I placed it on the lava rock it came back
  8. I've had this plant for a year and at first had it planted in substrate but almost died kind of glued it to a piece of lava rock and it started to grow back rather well never got the name as it was a gift so im trying to figure how big it will get currently in a 5 gallon nano thanks all
  9. Found this in one of my planted tanks eating my Hygrophila Angustifolia only one I see I live in the USA and can't find anything on Google
  10. Hello I have a question my brother who lives very far away from me has started a 30 gallon aquarium and has been trying to cycle his tank for two weeks. His ph is 6 his ammonia is 1.5 nitrite is .5 and nitrate it's 20 ppm. He was getting his water tested and was told that he could put fish in his tank because his ph is so low that it automatically nullifies the ammonia in his tank making it safe for fish. I explained to him that every thing I have ever read has stated no ammonia no nitrites and no nitrates above 20 ppm. Is thier really a difference in ph or is the fish seller trying to get over tia
  11. Actually it is my display tank its a jungle and as far as the filters you can't see them aquarium co-op sponge filters are great at blending in with the plants and everything else is blacked out to blend in with the plasty dipped background
  12. Thanks that makes alot of sense 👍
  13. I have a 125 and I have two canaster filters one hob and two sponge filter as well as alot of plants and other than topping it off once a week I don't have to do water change but maybe once a month. Honestly don't have to do that my parameters are still perfect I just do it to promote spawns as well as replace old water
  14. Hello all I bought 40 silver tip tetras from aqua huna and they have been in my 125 for about a month now. They are healthy and active. My question is the only time they schooled was for about two weeks after I put them in the tank (after quarantine) other than a few times at feeding they really don't school any more not even what you would consider shouling is this typical. Because I got them based off Cory's video when he added a hundred to his 225 and I really liked the idea of the schooling. Do I need to add more? They are with other peaceful community fish so no aggressive behavior in the tank. Any ideas on this? Thanks 😊
