  5. Ok, so for the last IDK...month maybe Ive been feeding the babies quite small amounts of pellet food (1-2 crushed) plus duckweed (~1tbl spoon). Anyway the thing is I would have loved to feed them more but the Ranchu especially Tom (whom now I think should be Tombellina) would start floating or head spinning/diving...very frustrating. The thing is it was not what i was feeding them so much as their desire to go to the surface to graze on bubbles and air after the food was gone , talk about desperadoes! I did have some success previously with plants on the surface buffering the bubbles from the bubbler, but the plants became messy and so on so I removed them. Hmmmmm Ok, so I cant turn the bubbler off completely cos my tank is taller than it is wide etc so need them for the air exchange in water (IDK, the deal is if i dont have bubbles I get green water ) So, why not just turn the bubbles off when I feed them and leave it off for a bit until the feeding frenzy is over...well I did do this and fed them 2x 1cm cubes of gel food. Success no floating!!! If I had fed this with the bubbles on there would have been floating for sure. Then for the second feed (this is the real test) I turned off the bubbles again, they got a pinch of 1mm pellets (~15-20pellets). Waited till they had stopped frantically feeding and grazing then turned the bubbles back on. Eureka!!! Still no floating! I really hope this continues because the floating is so stressful and I want to feed my water piggies what they need .

  8. Oo, lots and lots! What will you do with them all?
  9. If you are set on getting the long one you would need to brace it at the top with a frame of some sort (like a wooden belt )
