Yeah I have had a few (okay more than a few) of my coccina species go up and out while doing maintenance. But that is more when they are startled. Otherwise I can remove their glad wrap completely during water changes, and not have to do the 100m sprint back with my water bucket to make sure no one has jumped out.
Got this photo of my stiktos male. He is looking good after rearing basically three consecutive lots of fry. Hopefully he and the female take a break for a while.
Then here is my new aging water system. The stocking is stuffed full from peat moss and I will be adding some new IAL tomorrow to make the water extra dark. I eventually want to have a big 100L tub or something set-up like this in the storage area of our rumpus and use only this water for water changes.
Unfortunately, this is only 20L so may need to set up another one so I am not continually depleting it.
