About Me

  1. I’ll try to keep it simple this time. Day by Day photo journal to figure this out. Any help or comments much appreciated.
  2. Pair one. Have laid several times but no fryPair 2 currently with eggs day 2Day one of eggs male is still fertilizerDay 2 what is left of eggs day to. I have hatched many angelfish but now I want them to hatch because I have some where they can go. Both pairs are laying every two to three weeks. Ideas welcome. I have platinum Pearlscale that will soon be ready to breed and some are pairing off already.so I would like to be more consistent.
  3. Not sure where else to get help on this. Today I noticed these little egg type looking spheres throughout my tank. Yesterday they were not there. And today there are at least 12 (that I can see) spread randomly on the bottom of my 5.5 gallon tank. Does anyone know what these are? I have 1 mystery snail, 1 ghost shrimp, and 1 molly fish (currently being treated for ich). I have noticed some tiny new, possibly nerite, snails that must have come with some new plants I got over 2 weeks ago. The "eggs" look slightly yellow fluid filled with some air bubbles(?) in them?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  4. Guys! I have been a terrible fish mom. They get fed, the water gets changed as infrequently as possible. I've been in a holding pattern, dealing with work, life, and the new house. I finally did a big water change, and suddenly 2 giant clutches of mystery snail eggs dropped into the tank! I had given up on these guys, as they never seemed to do anything and one died in the move. I fished out the clutches immediately, and discovered a third up under the rim. I dropped the water level a little, put the 2 knocked off clutches in a floating container with a paper towel, and have not decided whether I should do the same with this one that is still attached? That one is pink the other two are gray and white? Advice from snail gurus sought! Thanks! (Pics in the morning, it is late here)
  5. I was able to pick out a couple medaka eggs and this time they're in methylene blue so hopefully they won't cloud up and die. I didn't take a photo at 1 day post fertilization but this one is at about the 2 dpf point. At 1dpf, I could see the oil droplets coalesced into 2 drops (no photo). Today (day 2 pf) there's one obvious oil drop, a large yolk and embryo. For reference, below is roughly 1 day(a) and 2 days(b) from an article taken with a much better microscope.
  6. I have had some rice fish for a week or so in a small established pond containing a single endler and 20 or so rice fish. Several of the females are producing eggs on a daily basis and distributing them or the mop and hyacinth etc. Last night I noticed “ hairs” growing off of several of the eggs and I removed them from the mop. Does any one have advice on reducing or eliminating this issue. below is a brief description of the tank. Are their issues with drift wood, dirted tanks, or found plants in this set up..? I have a dirted “tank” with a large stone maybe 15 lb on the bottom and some drift wood planted in substrate is some narrow leaf valasineria. Floating in water is hornwort. In a basket I have 2x lotus tubers and some misc pond plants form a local lake ( 1 is eastern water chestnut- 1 is a mystery..) floating loose is water hyacinth and some frog bits ( I think) .. hope this helps. I attached a link to an older video post of more of the pond.. pond is ceramic planter about 20” tall and a 20” diameter. Had a hole I plugged with Aquarium Safe Silicone and some plastic cutting board..
  7. My Angel Fish laid eggs on the new amazon sword plant. Should I put Angel Fish from breeding tank back into the community tank?
  8. Decided this would be a good oppertunity to grab some eggs out to a tumbler and see if i got any fry out of it. This is about 1/4 of the spaen and the male is gusrding the cave where they were laid.
  9. Moved out everything but this pair. Added wood. Waited and watched. Much lurking about a certain hole in the wood... and BOOM! Golden Eggs tumbling out.
  10. I finally bred my Bronze Cories (yes I know boring old "normal" cories), some are partly white while others are clear. I put them in a Specimen container so they wouldn't be eaten. Should I hook up a air pump and let the eggs be bubbled? Is the white fertilized and the clear unfirt? Fill me in on how to raise them and everything! I am super excited. My Kh is 80, Gh 60 and pH is 7.0.
  11. So I’m a huge fan of cpd’s, if you couldn’t tell by my name?!?! Lol. Anyways I had bought a group of 6 cpd’s months ago and I had to grow them out. Unfortunately 3 died so I had 2 females and 1 male but I didn’t know untill they grew a little more. So they were just about sexing out and I decided to buy 6 more to build my colony and add some extra blood into my colony to strengthen the colony for when they were old enough to breed. My 3 from the first order had grow and now just sexed out and is raring to go and breed. Luckily I was blessed with 2 females and 1 male. The other ones are still a month maybe two out from sexing out and breeding. Anyways so I have them all in a 10 gallon with a couple panda corys to grow out and albino bn plecos. Everyone leaves each other alone. So the 1st 3 cpd’s started doing the dance a couple days ago in the Java moss and deli cup. I noticed the younger ones go in and out of the moss at times too quickly... so that has me a little scared because idk if since this is my cpd’s first time trying to spawn if these first couple of days are “dry” runs? Or are the little guys eating the eggs? With as much as the females and male dance in the cup I’d expect to find at least one egg but the couple times I’ve checked I haven’t found not 1 egg? I know the panda corys are leaving them alone (surprisingly) and so are the plecos. So I’m curious and would love to hear what you guys would think is happening? Or any advice on how I should go about this?!?! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you and have an amazing day! p.s. don’t judge my tank lol, it’s not a show tank it’s a breeding tank. I’ve had more success with “dirty” tanks and breeding!
  12. my angelfish started acting funny and i looked on youtube and found out that i something called a slate well I put a tile and blocked the other angelfish from getting them all that was Sunday.. then yesterday the pair started eating the eggs so I pulled them and put them in Metholyne Blue cuz youtube said so... well now what do I do... do I leave them in that blue stuff until they hatch... please HELP...
  13. So I have a batch of Ram eggs. The parents remain with the eggs in a secluded 20g. Question; I can see several eggs that don't look fertile. How on earth do I remove the unfertilized eggs without disturbing the parenthood now taking place? Those things are tiny! She laid them on a small piece of slate. It's mostly the male guarding the eggs, but they do seem to take turns.
  14. I'm still having a hard time getting them to lay in the mop(I've given up) and I don't yet see anything in my water lettuce but I found a group of 5-6 eggs in my mop today (was just checking it over before I threw it in the garbage) and I found that 2 of them were fertile and the others were gross looking. I separated out the two good ones in a petri dish and moved them to my empty fry tub that I hide under my desk. If these two guys make it they'll be the most watched and pampered rice fish fry ever since they'll be my first babies. Anyway, I thought I'd share a photo of the eggs, with some thread stuck to them from the mop. It's hard to see from this angle, but face on you can both eye spots really well. From a random paper with photos I found I'm guessing these guys are about half way done before hatching.
  15. My rams laid eggs last night. I pulled them and they are now in a little specimen container with some methylene blue and an air stone. They are hanging inside the aquarium so they stay the same temp as where they were laid. They usually eat the eggs so this is the first spawn I have pulled. I don’t know what I am doing. Thank you!
  16. I left for vacation for a week (I don’t normally do this, and then these were in the corner of my tank, being watched mainly by my angelfish. Could they be eggs? They are very fuzzy though... and now they’ve fallen off the wall. What do I do?
  17. I noticed about 10 days ago my biggest shrimp was berried. she disappeared for the last 2-3 days and I found her again today but with only 4ish eggs left. She's been with 4 other females until the 27th of feb when I added 12 more shrimp, presumably some male. It seems unlikely the eggs hatched given the time line. Does anyone have an idea what happened. my temp is 24C-25C depending on the thermometer, nitrate 5 (up to 15 max when i dose ferts) gh 6-7 kh4. here's the best photo i could get of her
  18. I have a comet and a black moor in a 10G tank. I don’t even know which is male or female. But I can see both have become very aggressive. They laid eggs. Look at the pictures. I am not even sure if they are fertilized. Is this even possible? Please suggest what to do. Should I move the two to a separate tank? My tank is full of eggs.
  19. Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone had an issues with Amano shrimp Eating Eggs? I Have an apisto trio and not sure if I should remove the amano shrimp. i do have quite a bit of algae so im not sure if they will ever be too hungry but hopefully you guys will have more experience. Thanks in Advance!!
  20. This is something I've never seen before. The female platy has eggs outside of its body. Will the problem resolve itself?
  21. I haven't seen any in the LFS but I am always drawn to them online. Would love to hear from people that kept them. My 33 gal is still cycling and I haven't decided on stock yet so doing some research 🙂
  22. Yesterday morning I noticed my bronze and my albino's, ahem* behavior. The day before I did a water change... so eggs! Dad: Ponyo, albino | Mom: Sosuke, Bronze Background: I have had the bronze momma, Sosuke, for over a year now. She is my veteran Cory. Parents don't have favorites, but her and I go way back. So, needless to say, I love her. The albino is a more recent addition to the community tank. In the past Sosuke has laid many clutches, but none have been fertilized, guppies get them before I can, novice attempts and / or that darn fungus kept them from hatching. This time the albino and bronze have been doing the famous T and eggs were laid immediately after so I know these are valid eggs. To save them from my hungry guppies, I decided to move them to a hatch / grow out tank. This was my first time saving majority of them and using methylene blue, so I am hopeful. I ordered an egg tumbler, but needed to move the eggs sooner than it's arrival. *Should I move them to the egg tumbler or leave them be in the "hatch tank"? I plan on 50% water changes daily til hatched then 2-3x/week for the hatched fry. What are your experiences with Cory breeding?
  23. So I have a dilemma. I have Electric Blue Acara eggs that showed up unexpectedly in my 40 breeder. The parents have been diligently guarding them, and they appear viable. They are about 3 days old, so I expect them to hatch soon, and the parents have been digging little hollows to put the fry in in preparation. Their only tankmates are a cloud of mutt guppies who are curious but not gutsy enough to challenge an acara. They have been SUUCH good parents. I bought a Ziss EZ Breeder box because I would really like to grow out the fry, and I did not expect them to be this successful. I assume that if I left the fry with the parents they would raise them for 2 weeks and then possibly eat them and spawn again. So I think I should pull the rock, but I kinda want to see if they will raise them? Ahhh, decisions decisions. The fry will be easier to target feed in the box, and I would get more to adulthood maybe. But if they can raise them to the brine shrimp eating stage I would be able to catch the fry in a few weeks before the parents spawn again...And it would be easier maybe? Thoughts? Suggestions?
  24. I woke up today to a big surprise my blue rams spawned for the first time. I've never kept rams before but I wanted to try my hand a breeding them. When I bought them they were smaller than I thought they would be and I thought it would be a few months before they were ready to spawn guess I was wrong. I have a vinegar eel culture ready to go once they start eating. I know rams usually eat eggs the first few spawns so im wondering if I should pull the eggs or leave them in with the parents?
  25. Are these things on the glass of my tank eggs? And are they CPD eggs? Fish in the tank are CPDs, guppies, neo shrimp, and kuhli loaches.
