  1. I vote for white clouds. They are so underrated. I have the gold variety but I love them all.
  2. No clue, but I also got that one from Aquarium Coop. I give it their root tabs as well.
  3. The one directly behind it is an amazon sword that I cut in half. It was huge.
  4. I got this beautiful plant from the Coop about 2 months ago. The ember tetras are pointing at it. It was huge, I couldn't believe it. I love it!
  5. I can't speak for the other fish you have but I feed it to my spawning adult white clouds. When they have fry, the little ones get some as well. It's one of the foods I cycle through often.
  6. I agree, definitely take the fish out. I have a horror story about changing substrate from sand. I left the fish in and thought I would carefully remove the sand. As I was removing it huge gas bubbles were released. One by one the fish started looking like they were dying, so I removed them immediately and put them in a bucket. ALL of the fish were dead within about 30 min. I will NEVER make that mistake again. It was almost surreal. I knew about these gas bubbles but never thought it would happen to me. I'll probably never use sand again. I felt so bad knowing I was the one that killed my fish.
  7. This is a 40g breeder with only a stingray light, no CO2. Peace River is my favorite substrate. It's not as tiny as sand so I don't have to worry about compacting or getting it in filter intakes. It's great for growing plants and my cories love it. I watch them bury their little faces up to their eyeballs. They also have the most beautiful barbels. It's great for soft bellied fish. What more can I say? Since I switched over I have absolutely no complaints.
  8. I have so many white cloud fry I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them all. They are sure amorous little fishies! Geez, they are like guppies. I have them in three tanks in the house and in a small tub/pond outside. I just noticed tiny fry in the one outside. The fry in my 20 gal. long are getting pretty big. I guess I'll have to move the adults to my 40 gal with the ember tetras so the tetras can do a little white cloud birth control (hopefully). 🐟🐟🐟
  9. I'm a weird one. I've decided that I really like algae. I let it grow just like my plants and just "prune" it once in awhile. One of my tanks is a little 10 gal. near a window. It's planted and has the prettiest fuzzy hair algae. I think the fish enjoy it also. They're always picking goodies out of it.
  10. Wow, amazing! Well, that answers that, thanks.
  11. Nope, I just took the adults out. Good thought though.
  12. So, I had whitecloud fry about 2 months ago. At that time, I moved all the adults to another tank. Two days ago, and again today, I see tiny new fry. Can eggs lay around that long and then hatch? Aren't our tanks amazing? It's so fun to see what will happen next!
  13. I LOVE that blue iris, just gorgeous! I love this place. I get so many ideas from all of you, thanks.
  14. My whiteclouds overwintered in the Pacific NW. Just look at that green water! I've been putting my plant cuttings from my tanks in here for about the last month (not shown here because I was doing a water change and cleaning). I put some stuff from the bottom in a jar for a little experiment for my granddaughter. It has some salvinia floating on top. I'm excited to see how it goes this year. I really wasn't expecting much since it's such a small amount of water. How fun for the grand kids to learn.
