  1. First picture is a close up of what is mostly Acara fry and second is the surviving fry from the original hatch. Long ways to go for these guys but wow is my group prolific!!!
  2. Ask and you shall receive! The scape is going good, only issue is the flourite coming to the surface because of the Banjo Cats and whatever else digging in the sand. Plants are fully recovered from the move and plenty of new growth is coming in. Current stock list: Electric Blue Acara=6 Leupold Angel=4 Bosemani Rainbows=6 Dwarf Neon Rainbows=10 Banjo Catfish=8 Calico Bristlenose=5 Orange Venezuelan Cory=6 Red Pencil Fish=5 Silver Hatchet fish=12 I would say that I am at my max (maybe a little over). besides the 4 medium Coop sponges I have an Fluval FX6 that I installed a week or two ago.
  3. Upgraded my fry box in the 180. Thanks Deen for the inspiration. The fry are a mix of Electric Blue Acara and Koi Angels. Just got free swimming status today.
  4. The third batch of eggs looks to have hatched as I saw wigglers still attached to the side and then nothing a few hours later. The only thing in the tank I'm worried about eating them is my Rhinogobius Filamentosus (think freshwater Gobey). Fingers crossed I see them swimming around in the next couple of weeks. The first surviving 5 are still doing great in the breeder box. They are about half the size as the couple week older pleco fry.
  5. Glorious description and pictures. Thank you for sharing what you learned with us.
  6. No luck with the second batch of eggs. Nothing overly fungussed, maybe just not fertilized. No idea... Found this batch when I got home. I think I will leave them on the wall to see if anything tries to eat them. I think they are safe from the rainbow shiners, bristlenose and hillstream loaches. The only thing I'm worried about are the freshwater Gobey.
  7. Male and Female Rainbows!!! I'm not an expert enough to know what exact species they are but no questions they are Rainbows.
  8. That was correct at one point... This month has moved back and forth a bit. In person pick up only is scheduled for Saturday October 2nd at the Bloomington Location (Lutheran Church of the Redemption Gymnasium). There is no club organized way to hold or ship items. I know on my items if someone reached out I could hold or ship to winning bidders so that would have to be done outside of club organization.
  9. Minnesota Aquarium Society Members! The fall 2021 auction is live!!! Get your pictures and descriptions ready if you are looking to participate in the BAP or HAP programs or if you are looking to move other live aquarium items. I will be submitting soon. If you don't have anything to sell, but are looking to grow your stock take a look. There is nothing better than getting locally raised healthy and hardy fish from NERMS just like yourself.
  10. In theory? Yes... Legally? Not a chance. Any invasive species is illegal to keep and transport. Not worth the risk.
  11. Starting to color up nicely 😁 smaller than a dime yet but getting bigger every day.
  12. All I can say is so far so good. The box is getting fed either algae wafers or flakes. Being catfish they look to be feeding fine on what doesn't make it through the mesh.
  13. I think you are pretty close to your limit. Considering Cory do best in larger groups I would not be adding them to my tank. But if you are a water changes fanatic summer pygmy Cory might work.
  14. They certainly all look to have Male characteristics to me.
  15. @Indlers your local or state wide fish club would be who runs the BAP in your area. I have the Minnesota Aquarium Society that I run everything through. I am sure there is someone in this forum that would know who your fish club was if we knew your location. @Atitagain this is actually the first time I have used it. I was watching the Minnesota Aquarium Society guest speaker on that Thursday night via Zoom when I noticed the eggs. I was able to unbox and set up the tumbler while also watching the presentation in just a few minutes. I believe it is perfect for Cory eggs and I know it cut down on the number of eggs that ended up getting fungus. I will keep you up to date on these ones to show their progression better than the first batch.
