I can truly say I do miss this.
It really is a rewarding hobby.
Here are a couple pictures of my current stock.
2 -Siamese algae eater
2 -rainbow guppy (I think)
2- Red Platy & 2 - Yellow Molly (Will the molly tail turn all yellow when they become adults?)
2 - Red Cherry Shrimp
1 - Angle fish (my son calls him/her "Pancake")
5 - Neon Tetras
1 - Red tailed Shark
Got a 2 new plant today. one is a crypt parva and the other I am not sure what it is.
Crypt Parva w/ RCS
Not sure what this is
everything looks healthy! I've never seen a yellow molly before. Are you going to breed the mollies and get a female guppy? I always loved that part of the hobby when I was younger - raising the babies
I might, I never thought about breeding. I didn't know if I was ready to handle that.
I am thinking about getting rid of the red tailed shark, he is a little...
I will be getting rid of the red tailed shark. I am giving him away this weekend.
Also I think the Siamese algae eaters are not doing very well with my small algae problem, so I am going to add to Oto's and see how they do.
I am just getting a small amount of green algae on my DW and rocks, nothing big but I did turn down the lights just in case.
So here is an update.
Everything is so so... I gave away the red tail shark and had to re-scape the tank because of it.
Then I ended up losing one of the red cherry shrimp and a Siamese algae eater (I just can not find the body of the siamese). I think they died because of string up the sand and getting an ammonia spike.
So here is an issue I need help with.
ID this algea? I think this is Green Spot Algae but I am not sure because I am not using CO2 and the lights are on 50%.
So here are the plants.
Baby tears (I don't think they are doing very well)
Amazons (Doing ok, still getting new growth but leaves are starting to turn brown) - I am guessing they need potassium but not sure
Ludwigia ovalis (I think)
anubias barteri (I am guessing again. I had to move this to shade because the leave were getting what I think is black algae, not sure.)
a different Anubias, is this algae or bad nutrients?
I am not sure what this is but would love for someone to ID this. Seems to be growing great.
Fish are doing great, I ended up picking up 4 Otos two weeks ago and they are doing fine.
As I was looking around I noticed that I think my Gold Dust Lyretail Molly is prego but not sure...
Mom and Dad
So yea that's it. Any help on the plants, algae and molly is very welcomed.
Plants look great! I'm sorry I can't help on the algae and plants
No worries, thanks anyways.
From asking a local FW friend he thinks the Gold Dust Lyretail Molly is prego.
