    Added 6 juvenile borelli's last week. Will update soon with pics. I lowered the temperature of the tank for them. The discus will be fine. I am sure a compromise of 79 to 80 degrees will be just fine. So cool seeing dwarf cichlids that small throughout a 150 gallon tank.

    Above are grainy pic updates. Shocked to see baby bn's in the tank. Also, my lone raphael getting fat off cherry shrimp but still not putting dent in shrimp population.

    Just realized that I do not have two Bushy nose plecos. I have one bushy nose pleco and one regular common pleco. I never really looked at the common one because I bought it as a bushy nose juvenile but apparently that's not the case. I guess there is no other way that I could have little babies unless they can totally crossbreed. That just blew my mind.

    Just set up small anoxic trial. Approx 2 gallon canister with kitty digging. I probably didn't do it right... but that's why I set the bar low still left big canister going.

    Bad pic but new pair I loooove. Fanning about 100 wigglers. The mom is SUPER red normally. The dad was supposed to be a male red rose but he is so blue that I am pretty positive he is not a male rose red. Closer to a Cobalt. Regardless, that's the exact cross I want! Meanwhile, they'll have to fend off tankmates for any to survive. If they succeed, they'll be the third pair to successfully raise some babies in my community 150.

    Update: saw about 50 free swimmers feeding off mom and dad. Dad forgot that he had the babies on him when I put food in the tank and darted for the food. About half of the babies made it back to Mom. Half a day later, I did not see any more babies. They have already laid a new batch of eggs and I think I will try the net divider technique I use about 3 or 4 years ago. Please look at old thread for that information. Pretty much is a pretty shady net that really doesn't stop anything from coming from one side of tank to the other but for some odd reason it helped tremendously with an a heavily planted in heavily driftwood display tank in regards to babies surviving so they are large enough that there are no more worries

    Welcome to your new 'hood. If the pastries are as sweet as your fish you are onto a winner. When I kept borelii here in Italy had a real job keeping the temperature in summer below 80, in the end passed them on to a friend who keeps the tank in a room with air-con

    Yeah, the borrelli's are long gone. I just didn't want to admit it so Liz can tell me, I told you so!

    Old pics. Took forever just to get them off my old damn Photobucket account. If anyone knows the secret of downloading albums rather than one photo at a time then dear God private message me! These photos are of my last pair that successfully raised a spawn beyond 6 weeks in the community tank. I did put in a little makeshift net divider for week 1 of fs that really did not divide anything but it just slow down the amount of other fish that came to their side of the trank. I just did it again today for my current pair and used some sort of bag made out of netting. So far so good. They have a new batch of Wiggler's.
