Very nice...I have a clutch of Orange Spot Plecos, the father has been fanning in his cave for 4 days now so shouldn't be long now. If you need any grindal worms wraithie I can hook you up!

Ooh orange spots, nice, got a pic of dad?

Thanks for the offer Chi, at what stage do you use grindleworms?(sounds like something out of Harry potter)

Squiggle and Durro have set me up with micro worms and drosophila if I need them which I'm very grateful for.

i think having a successful spawn is one of the things that I enjoy most about keeping fish :)

Grindals are fed when fry are bit bigger, to juvies and adults...let me know if you need them they will bulk up the fish in no time flat.

here is dad in his cave fanning a clutch (left corner)

This would be nest location 4 since hatching(apparently dad likes to keep on the move). A couple are starting to swim, I expect that tomorrow they will be a mobile handful for the poor guy. The next challenges will be making sure they're fed, and seeing if they can survive the neon tetras(it's a community tank after all).

So everyone started swimming properly this morning and it was quite distressing to see dad chase a tetra away only for another one to race in and pick off fry. I managed to get 5 of the 7 neons out without destroying the tank scape. Back from errands and they look to be fairly happy, he's even allowed mum back to help :)

      Oh no it’s magnetic... could be a problem with my magnet cleaner. Although, depending on the attraction I could just use the mag cleaner for the top 3/4 of the tank and get a scraper or something for the bottom.

      Ooh I just found a sand that looks almost perfect, it even comes in the right package size for my tank. https://www.aquaticsupplies.com.au/products/pisces-iron-sand It’s another Pisces & Oliver Knott creation; AquaIron. Says it doesn’t alter the KH/GH/pH/TDS etc. Only problem is it says it should not be added to established tanks due to... cloudiness?? What do u think about this one?  Thanks again for your guys’ help!

      I was hoping it wasn't the pisces brand. Oh well, cross that off my recommended list. Are you willing to try AquaLava by Oliver Knott? I know it's not cheap.   Maybe. Got a link or something to where you would buy this? Without going into a whole Geology session, it depends on what the composition of the volcanic sand was.  We get a lot of our Scoria from NZ, that is generally inert.      If you want to go with sand, generally, your choice is Bunnings play sand. However, since sand can be sourced from any quarry anywhere in Australia, there is no guarantee it is inert. You can only buy it and then test for changes to the water parameter.

      Hey guys, just found an add for this website showcasing a cool-lookin native algae eating shrimp. https://algaeeatingshrimp.com.au/products/australian-algae-eating-shrimp Anyone heard of these before or own any? My interest was peaked by the claim that they eat hair-type algae, as I have some on my crypts and lace fern that I cannot remove. And for a price of $4 ea, and super easy parameters, they sound pretty doable!  Tell me more oh great SKFians! 😁 (or feel free to point me towards an already existing page) post-note: have you/do you keep these grubs? Seems like your sort of thing.

      Agreed! I had a tank with this setup but it came with the sponge behind the slits. Try not to get too fine sponge as that will restrict the flow and block too quickly. You will need to keep clearing the sponge every now and again as well! Simon
