I got some more plants, more water sprite, and a plant with the word 'feather' in its name..gonna research more.. =] Maybe you guys can help me out?
Also, no place around me sell suck weed. Its frustrating, cause it would be perfect for my pond, and as food!
I was visiting a friend and came upon a pond, with duckweed! I snatched some, and its currently sitting in my bin, in my window, with an air stone. Im hoping if i dont put it in my tanks/ponds for a long time, whatever bacteria may have been on it from thw pond will have died.
And with my 45 gallon, the water sprite i got before, really helped my tank cycle, and i was able to put in my guppies! And as soon as i did, the females started giving birth! So my fry tanks got about 35 fry in it, and the tanks got about 15 more swimming around..=]
I also added about six tall plastic plants to my tank, to help with the bare space.
I think i may be stopping after this, and let the guppies make up for the other three groups i was going to have.
Im still hoping to get a small group of cories, as my boyfriend is really set on them! But he wants the orange ones! they are $20! No way!
Anywhoo, this is what ive been up to, though i do have two more projects id like to do, such as swithcing m y betta and two oldest guppy fry to my 5.5 next to my bed, and putting my cray in her own tank.
And, i managed to get some silk plants that have enclosed wire! So ive made some bushes, and plan on doing a rescape on my 45..So excited! if only i could find the time!
I have videos, and pictures, though they are taking FOREVER to get to my email, so ill upload them in the morning.
Also, i took pictures of all my gups, cause, i love em, and they deserve pictures of just them..=]
And, cause Im going to be actually using the 'my aquariums' tab, and id like to be able to show people my gups...=]
There is one Pristella with a black spot on its head, it looks as if its a coloration issue, you can see him a few times in the videos. Ive been told it may be a sickness in the single fish itself, and not contagious, so ive kept him, though i am still trying to find out what exactly this is...
Also, with my big tank dilemma, the out come is that i can now start putting my fish back in my tank, but my boyfriend beat me to it and bought me more cherry barbs, cause he feels bad he killed the other ones. So, i had to scape it real quick from silk plants at the dollar store and this is what it looks like now!
Ill be sending pictures of the puppies to my email and trying to upload them tonight, if not tomorrow afternoon!
There should be more pictures coming too..=] Its alotta work, since i cant just upload em..>.<
I actually just added some sand to my 45, its looking good!
Its no where near as much as i need, but it covers te bottom, and it gives me an idea what its gonna look like..
I really like the dollar store stuff..makes it look like the fish are swimming in a tree! lol
The barbs are doing really well, one of the males is already courting one of the females..=]
