purpledingo Posted March 23 Share Posted March 23 Hi All, I'm from Sydney Australia and only been in the hobby for about 2 months, got my first all in one 50L tank as my 1 year old son always seemed interested when visiting aquariums etc. but now up to 4 tanks with plans for another 1 or 2. 50L community tank - 10 neon tetras, 3 guppies, 6 platies, 2 female Bettas, 1 golden catfish Got some babies being raised in a breeder tank hanging off the front, presumably platies Realised one of the Bettas we bought as female for the community tank must be male as it's been quite aggressive (killed a handful of the tetras and our elephant ear guppy) and we then found the other female giving birth with the suspected male wrapped around her squeezing the eggs out. I'm bubbling the eggs in a cup but not sure if any will be viable, 2 days now, had some eggs about a month ago that I had assumed were tetras but now realise were probably from the Bettas as well. The male Betta has now been separated into a bowl while I plan a 5th tank, just posted separately about a possible sump project for that and the following 20L tanks I've already got 20L - 10 cherry red shrimp, 1 mystery snail, 1 ramshorn snail 20L - 1 red male Betta, 1 bristlenose (not the aggressor from the community tank, separate purchase) 300L community tank - 3 salmon red rainbows, 4 electric blue rams, 8 peppermint/albino/mix of bristlenose, 10 cardinal tetras Was looking for another tank initially to separate the female Bettas before we realised the problematic Betta was likely male and stumbled upon this 300L for sale fully stocked, moved it over and got everyone back in the tank with no deaths yet (6 days) although one of the Rams is being treated for a fungus infection prior to the purchase, hopefully they pull through. Anyway seems like I've really jumped in the deep end but that's where I'm up to at the moment, thanks. Luke 3 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
