    Default 3-17 Update

    Hi all. Today was tear apart tank and clean everything. Took about 2 hours but its finished. These fish have been a pleasure growing. Its just amazing watching them swim thru out the tank. I did have them lay eggs again, this time only a couple turned white after the first 24 hours. They were doing a great job protecting them until the lights went out. There are 4 rummy nose in the tank that ended up taking turns eating eggs. After the challenge is over this pair will be moved to their own tank in hope of getting fry from them. Growth to me has slowed down so I do not believe they will get much bigger. Here is a few pictures:

    Thanks all, I have been fighting bga in the tank so it now adds to the cleaning time. I plan on moving the tank when I put down the new flooring so at that point it will get a major overhaul.

    Jim:

    Great update. You are doing a fantastic job at raising the fish. They are so colorful and such good size. Can`t wait to see how their spawns turn out in the future.
    Thanks for the update.
