Spotlighting in my tanks

Recommended Posts

I was very disappointed today when once again my Tibee dropped her eggs and I couldn't find any babies anywhere. Pretty much the same in my Mischling/ TB tank berried mamas no longer berried and only a couple of babies visible. So I got a LED torch and once it was dark went looking through the glass at the moss etc and lo and behold there were very new babies in the Tibee tank - there are also some Berried Chocolates in there but I hadn't noticed that they had dropped their eggs yet so hopefully it's Tibees.

then a quick look in the Mischling tank and 2 different sized babies jumped out of the light very quickly. I don't know how many babies in either tank because as soon as the light found them they vanished but where there is life there is hope. :happydance:

Transferring them into my new smaller tanks has made it easier to keep track of the berried girls so pleased with that outcome.

i also looked into my big community tank where the Tibees used to be and quite a few youngsters were visible there too , many more than I see during the day so with a bit of luck there might be some Tibees there too. jibdcb

It usually takes 4+ days before you can really see them, and within 1-2 weeks, they are so much more visible….just keep up with the powder foods. Great work !

Thanks BB plenty of powdered foods in the tanks I still love Biozyme and start using it once the girls are berried. I never have this problem with the Cherries I can see them no problems but the Others seem to be much shyer

      I have 10 chilli rasbora and a killi in a 30(ish) litre tank and they are doing fine and seems about right in size! I hope to get some shrimp for trial at some stage to also go in there but thats for a later date, when things get back to a bit more normal. Simon

      A 600x300x180 tank is perfect for CPD or chilli rasboras.

      So an update...  I called the store that said they had an ADA 90f on their website and they dont have one.  ADA dont even make that tank anymore.   So guys help me out.. do you consider that the 60F 600x300x180 is too small for a small school of celestial pearl danios or cilli rasboras and shrimp?  30 litres This would certainly help me out with the overall build budget!  I have also found a fireAqua tank being imported into Western Australia that is 900x300x240. I am still in the budget and planning stage and would really appreciate your input team. Thanks for your help sub

      You should be able to tell the difference when they colour up a bit as those 2 type look quite different/distinctive patternwise! If you can't tell then put them in one tank and let them grow a bit bigger or just colour up a bit more then you will be able to tell and move one set to a different/seperate tank! Probably if they are small then there isn't much likelyhood of them crossbreeding as they are too young? Welcome to the forum! Simon
