  1. Anybody ordered the power head and have it setup already? I am thinking of getting one for my 75g but am curious how strong you think the flow is. I'd like the extra filtration power but dont want it to blow my plants all crazy.
  2. Great information already here. Dont hesitate to ask any more follow up questions.
  3. Wish I had this kind of luck LOL. Congrats.
  4. To echo the others here I think you will be just fine.
  5. I feed small amounts multiple times a day with 1 fasting day a week. The corys and plecos get a dedicated feeding once a day 30 minutes before the light goes off. I spend lots of time with my tanks when I am home thru the week and like to feed my fish. I also do a weekly 75% water change on each tank.
  6. I have this same problem so every time I do maintenance on the sponge filter I take the air stone out unscrew it and clean the pads to the best of my ability. It helps but they still need to be replaced eventually.
  7. Very nice. Always cool to see things repurposed.
  8. An update on the Cory fry. I counted 53 and everyone is doing fine so far. Feeding Sera Micron daily.
  9. Anybody else playing or still playing pokemon go? If so I need some active friends. Would be cool to add some fellow Nerms. 2993 0457 0297
  10. More photos mainly of plants this time. Pardon the dead hairgrass. It wont gravel vac out so I am holding out hope it might come back but probably not. That micro sword looking good tho. Berried whisker shrimp. Currently have 2 carrying berries.
  11. Promised pics of cory eggs/fry. Corydoras Paleatus aka peppered corydoras.
  12. I realized I havent taken any full tank shots and posted here sorry for the blur cant take focused pictures. Most of the plants below are either from the coop or propagated from said coop plants. Below is the 75g. PSO is out of control. Aquaclear 110 and large sponge filter. 23 Harlequin Rasboras. 13 Peppered Cories. 6 Otos. 1 female clown pleco. 7 Nerites. Ghost shrimp. Working towards a school of 15 otos but as most of you know they are hard to get thru quarantine. I've had decent luck so far as I've only lost 3 of the 12 I have brought home so far. This is the 20 Long I just setup earlier in July. It has 4 panda gara, blue and black neocardinia as well as 3 tiger nerites and 2 horned nerites so far. I plan on adding some Kuhli loaches and probably Dalmatian Mollies once the plants grow in some more. Not pictured is a big bronze crypt behind the wood. This tank was originally my quarantine tank. I treated some guppies for my BIL and they dropped some fry so it is currently a guppy fry grow out tank but they should be moving to their home soon. There is 13 fry in here almost a month old. Also home to some whisker shrimp. The ugly moss bridge was once majestic and beautiful until I left the gravel vac running unattended and it sucked all the moss right off. This is my newer quarantine tank aka the spongebob tank for my boys. It currently has 3 otos,13 ember tetras and 1 red racer nerite snail. Also pictured is the specimen container holding cory eggs. Bonus pic of all my COOP stickers. My anxiety prevents me from actually sticking them anywhere so they are stuck here using painters tape lol. Inside the left door of the 75g stand.
  13. I pulled the Cory eggs mentioned above in the last post. I put them in a speciman container with some methylene blue and an air stone. I did a water change this morning on their container and counted 21 fry already hatched and squirming around. It took me a couple of days to make the last update cuz I was sad but with death comes life. Hopefully I can do these fry better than the previous and raise them all till they're big enough to find a new home. Will attempt to take pictures today but they are tiny.
