The java fern and sword can be bathed in aquarium salt for a couple weeks to kill off anything.
The crypts, you can trash them, or if you really want, cut out the leaves, plant the root/some stem in a flower pot with soil and just keep it extremely wet the whole time. Once/if they thrive again with new growth, cut those leaves and replant in water. Lot's of work, but crypts are expensive here, don't know about where you are. xD
Sakura- they are still a little small. Are they both that pale? If so it seems like 2 juvie males. You can see the yellow coming in around the fins. I'd watch them for fighting. It is 20 gallons and densely planted from what I remember about it, they may just set up their own territories once they reach sexual maturity and stay out of each other's way. :D
I can't tell, but those are a little bit pale for Honeys. The ones I saw at my LPS were way darker, and roughly around the same size too. Is that a female? I can see that horizontal strip running through the body, I dunno.
Sakura - yes, the light strip I have is removable - hence the reason it fell into the tank >.<
NEEDY DOG IS BEING NEEDY >.<
John is leaving alaska tomorrow with a big U haul truck. This worries me, since it's one of the normal sized rigs and he sucks at driving in cities. But at least he has his dad with him and he can pay for stuff we weren't able to get in January - like food. I hope his dad has cash or credit cards because USA DEBIT CARDS DO NOT WORK IN CANADA
ok i just tried to scrape away the eggs that looked white. the ones remaining are tan. i think i have 26, if i counted right. i found another bunch by the heater, but they were all pretty white. i put four of those to float in a container. the ones on the front of the glass that didnt look fungusy are still there. i was scared to squish anything that still looked okay :s
The white eggs could still be fresh and underdeveloped. Lol your cories are really.. breeding. xD
I'm still going to have to say that gourami is male.. The females are brown, with a dark stripe. My yellow betta has that pink stripe down her body too- especially when you shine a light on her. I think it's like, flesh along the spine. o-O
Olympia, thanks. I have 3 of them, they all look like that and so far they all get along beautifully. I haven't seen any fighting but as you said, they look small so they may start as they get older. In which case, I will rehome them if necessary.
Tiki, then you can just get a replacement light strip, no need to get a whole hood unless you need it. Aww, I'll keep my fingers crossed for John but haha, yeah, at least he can eat. That seriously must have been some trip the two of you had when you came back to NYC.
EDIT: Male? Cool. At first I thought they were females too but they aren't brown. I had one that may have been a female but she mysteriously died a few days after I got her. Thank you again, Olympia. :) Now, if only the little buggers would leave the plants alone.
I've had my cories for over 6 months and so far, no breeding. Wonder if they're all one gender.
