  1. Mine really go for homemade snello. Here is a simple recipe that I make. https://steemit.com/snails/@snailshack/for-the-aquatic-snail-keeper-snello-recipe
  2. I would say moving the water over isn't necessary. There really isn't much benefit in terms of bb for the water. One thing I would suggest is to put the gravel from the 10 on top of the extra that you will need to fill the norm of the 20l. I would also move the filter material over as well, even if you just stuff it in there somewhere. But after that as long as you don't add a bunch more fish you shortly be good to go. I
  3. She seems to be hanging by herself a whole bunch though. Is it possible she is trying to drop them but the rest of the fish keep bugging her
  4. I belive i have a pregnant Molly. Her abdomen is starting to square off. I was wondering 2 things. 1. How long do you think it will be until she has the fry? 2. Would a 5 gallon tank be enough room for her to be in for a while until she has them? TIA
  5. OK thank you. I was also going to put them in the tank after I do my weekly water change
  6. Is there any special procedure that needs don't to move cory fry from my grow out tank to the main tank? TIA
  7. I did not get the ziss. I got one that I can hang inside my tank too keep temp up. I don't have a ton of room established yet you the hobby. I found a smaller one that mostly fits in my 5 gallon grow out tank. I only have 11 fry currently so I don't need to hatch that many.
  8. I bought them of Amazon and the website is said to go to on the package wasn't correct. There was over 1000 reviews from vpoint so I thought I woke give it a try. @Tihshho thanks for the video I will check it out
  9. I just received my hatchery and some eggs in the mail. I tried to Google this but all the topics talk about specific gravity. I have no way of measuring specific gravity and was hoping you all could help me. How much salt to water so I need to make and can I use api aquarium salt? TIA
  10. I just looked up seachem on their website and this is what it says Prime® may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. It contains a binder which renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.
  11. That's what I ended up doing. I took a piece of filter out and rinsed all thy crud of it and stuck it in some pantyhose with some gravel to weigh it down and put it right in front of the sponge
  12. I think I'm going to go another route and pull some filter out of my main tank. How will that work with only a sponge filter in the tank. Just set it close to it in some pantyhose.
  13. I just checked my grow out tank for the heck of it too see what the water parameters are. With twice daily water changes i want expecting to see anything but I actually have ammonia. About 1ppm maybe more. It's definitely green but not super dark. I'm getting ready to do another water change and will take out 50% . I use prime for dechlorinating. I have some quick start as well and was wondering if I can add that as well. I know bb isn't all that is cracked up to be but I was going to do a little expirament. I'm going to change the water, measure the ammonia and then add the bb. And then recheck 24hrs later to see what happens. Whet I want to make sure is that mixing the two won't have any bad reactions and possibly kill the Cory fry. TIA
  14. I was just wondering because I was putting it in a grow out tank for fry. I wanted to make sure it was clean to not introduce anything to them. Also because I had all that stuff stored in the garage.
