  1. Thats a great method. Thanks for sharing! My only problem with it is i don't know of a suitable container I have that would fit easily in my tank. Also what if I had plants? Wouldn't want to squish them! But, really, I care about the fish more. I might try this.
  2. @ shellbell IT would be pretty impossible to get an actual pic of this guy, sooooooo tiny! but maybe i'll try to get one up soon of the set-up. Then you can all use your imaginations and pretend i have a camera good enough to capture all the little fry-y details @ badfish I have a spongy on my cannister intake. so no chance of more stragglers unfortunately. don't think im not staring at the bottom of the tank every chance i get hoping to catch a glimpse of another one though!
  3. Well, by looking through Sorsha's fry journal I think he must be about 3-4 days old. How he lasted that long in with the monsters i do not know, but i am glad I have closely examined my breeding box net for holes and since it comes up above the water surface I am hoping for no Houdini moves. He's so fun. I'll be watching for him and all of a sudden he'll burst out of his Riccia cloud and settle at the bottom. Then zoom! back up!
  4. Right after the feeding frenzy this morning i just happened to notice something dart back in under the driftwood. (I have a barebottom save for a few anubias on a pretty good sized piece of driftwood.) After a few minutes of really careful looking i noticed it was a tiny little fry! I knew i had eggs last week, and that some were fertilized, but i thought they all got eaten they disappeared so quickly. After freaking out about him getting eaten while i just sat there watching him i reached in and scooped him up into a cup of tank water that i put some Riccia in. I rushed to the LFS and got a breeding/fry basket thing and found some hikari first bites. He/she is now swimming around in the basket at the top of the tank What now? I've never had fry before...
  5. Freshwater Jellys!!! That is so cool! this page has some interesting info on the life cycle yours may have gone though, if they really are FW jellys, oh i hope they are! so cool! LINK: Some guy in Japan has FW jellys too!
  6. Sakura, That picture is fantastic!
  7. forgot to add my other little solution! When i have company coming over, since the tank is in the living room, i just temporarily add water up to the rim. Then there is no more noise and the tank looks a bit more respectable.
  8. i have the same problem with that filter. As far as the 6 or so months i have had it, the only reason i can tell to keep the outtake above water is the noise and the amount of water lost from splash. I just let it splash and rigged an extra piece of plastic to keep it from splashing all the way out of the tank. I don't mind the noise and it helps with the aeration i think.
  9. do you have baking soda? this may help:buffering with baking soda
  10. I read somewhere that the curling ends of betta fins is a genetic defect that does not conform to the breed standards. But, I rather like them that way. I'm even on the lookout for a curly betta atm myself. You have a beautiful fish!
  11. sooooooo cute! You have such lovely fish, you're making me want a pearlie too!
  12. What's that stuff growing at the top? Beautiful fishie btw!
  13. such little cuties! I love your aponogeton penguin mug
