Red and black x light red

Ok so if any of you have been following my threads, my steel blue and red spawn was a week old and crashed and burned, because of over feeding :( Yesterday My red and black male and my light red female spawned, she has excellent 8 or 10 ray branching, but her edges are kinda ruff, my male has more rounded edges like a super delta but has 8 ray branching, so this will be an experiment spawn. I know her parents are quite lovely.

The form of each is acceptable and not too bad. The fry's form will also be pretty good. You can work on this line and improve it fairly easy. The males dorsal is nice and tall IMO, it's looks really good for a SD.

What are the snails for? Do you have some Indian Almond Leaf?

Snails are used for extra helping to keep the bottom/walls clean :) they'll eat the microscopic feces for you and after like a week or 2 you could start using the siphon

Sorry snails do not eat poo. They will eat algae off of the glass.

There is nothing that will eat poo, only plants will do that, and that is too slow. If anything snails will add more poo to the tank for you to vacuum.
