Thank you ineke ive just bumped up the temp slightly I think every couple of days ill increase it by half a degree till I get to 25 and hopefully that might trigger them into the mood im not sure what ill end up with but fingers crossed there should be some yellow rili in amoungst them

DIBS! I'll setup a second tank to house some of those things!

Are rili's just chance and selective breeding? Theoretically we could see Blue rili's and sunkists?

Well we have the carbons coming on, reds with blue genes, the yellows, overseas they have much more so the possibilities are there. Funny thing is some of us have very nice red rillis and yet we are chasing the Blue Velvets that they throw if they have the blue gene:encouragement:

Completely agree. I love a good red rili with a nice blue stomach. Id love to see orange rili or even a royal blue with a light body ive seen pics o both overseas they look anazing and totally possible so hopefully its only a matter of time

Am I mistaken in thinking that we can't get blue heads/tails with clear centers as the 'blue' gene usually effects the entire body?

The carbons are usually darker heads/tails with blue middles right?

I'd pay money to see a sunkist/pumpkin rili!

It takes some one with a lot of time and commitment and almost anything is possible. Plus willingness to cull anything not up to scratch:encouragement:

I'm too much of a softie to kull anything.

I had a hard time giving away my Pleco..

I've got 3 males here that DESPERATELY need to be kulled to allow my 2 good males to get some sexy time in. But I just cant bring myself to do it :p

That's why I put up the thread about foam boxes I gave away all my Red Cherries earlier this year and still have a few that were babies at the time no one is interested in one or two and its not worth the cost of postage but if I had somewhere to put the few culls every few weeks they would eventually build up to be worth offering to a new member just starting up.

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon

      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
