Hi and welcome! Yeah, I was thinking NPT was non planted tank and making stupid posts as, they kept saying their tank was planted. I realized it was NATURAL planted tank...I had a very DUH moment. :)

EE is elephant ear. I have seen some say Dumbo Ear too, on the aquabid and ebay threads. I have one but, sadly, not another to breed her with.

They aren't easy to find, at a price I can afford either. And, the ones I can afford, I wouldn't breed. Then again, I have been known to not look in the right places too. lol

She turns out to be a he and is currently going through more tail growth as well as obsessing over his bubble nest.
It's also too bad you're far away, I'd offer up Elliott to try breed with her. ;o

my RT has been very active and healthy.

Day 42--Fry still growing well and active. Not much to report. They are responded well to all foods and now chasing live daphnia. I found I also bred two small snails, somewhere when I put in some established substrate--they are tiny and, may end up as someone's snack!

I think the plants help immensely with the fry. They seem to really get a lot of peace and comfort out of them, as well as, I am sure some free Infusia (Sp?) as well. I ordered a culture of grindal worms that is fully established so, I hope to have these ready in time for them to be able to eat them.

Still feeding them MW/BW/WW and now, the live daphnia. At night, they get the final feeding of frozen BBS and frozen Daphia as well. Growing like weeds!

Day 49

These guys are doing great and showing colors. I appear to have a powdery blue fin color on many of them, while some seem to be growing like "dad" in the white--but could also not be showing their colors yet. I am now feeding daphnia (live) and just bbs/daphnia mixtures. I do still treat during the day with MW/WW/BW as well.

As I type this, I have my 3rd and final spawn, before I rehome my domestics. I will do a spawn log now. This will be my last spawn for my domestics as, I am going to be doing all wilds now--lost my job and, I have to do what is best for the fish, as well as feeling to be a part of helping keeping the rare species going. I posted on the classified section if anyone is interested in my domestics.
