Foxpuppets planted tank

Recommended Posts

Foxpuppet

After a 7 months hiatus living at our house during renovations I gave the planted tank a good going over before moving it back into its position in the house. (It's been under drop sheets for a few months and was coated in bga on the glass.

Good news is most of the plants were plugging away even with only one functional flouro tube out of 4.

Co2 is now back up and running too and I'm already seeing new growth. I lost a few erios which is upsetting but one has survived and hopefully in a few months will be up to dividing.

Yeah that's my last one. I've culled it heavily. From a $25 Vesuvius plant I bought a few years ago and sold many plants and runners from it since then.

The Crinum is doing well with three pups on the go.

Nice looking tank, now that it's uncovered and all running it should be good in no time.

On the home page there is now a classifieds tab where you can list bss items! If you are using mobile, you may need to scroll to bottom of screen and select 'use full version'.

In Tapatalk, to find the new Classifieds section, I used the following steps.

Go to Forum, then to Classifieds, then to For Sale. The first thread by Nogi is about the new Classifieds Area, there is a link in here, when you press the link it will open a full page view within tapatalk which includes the new Classifieds tab. You may need to log in to this full view site again though.

Hope this helps! Sorry to hijack, but once I know you have found the section, we can tidy up your thread and move this tapatalk section to a new thread.

Let me know if it works for you mate! Cheers

      Yeah, that would be about the max I would put into a tank that size.

      Yeah, mellis are extremely rare from what I've heard. Only seen them once on gumtree, but sold out by the time I enquired. Apparently some people have them from ANGFA meetings, and otherwise you can barely find them in the hobby.  Any idea whether I could fit 10 of any in a 5 gal?
    • jayc
      I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. They are all so nice.  As you said, signifer is easier to find. Don't know of any store selling mellis.

      Okay, the native tank is finally happening. Not at the fishroom, but as part of my new rack. I wanna do DRN, Chameleons, and maybe DAE. I really want to use some pseudomugils though, but I can't decide which variety. I'm thinking my options are signifer, gertrudae, mellis and tenellus. Leaning towards signifer because they're easy to find, small, cheap, and the closest out of all to Vic. I would really really love to do mellis though, if someone can direct me to a source? Would mean so much to me to breed an endangered species that I adore. How many pseudomugils could I fit in the tank though? It's a 5 gal I think, dimensions are 40x23x25 (LxWxH). I was told by a signifer breeder I could fit 10 signifer into it. Tenellus would be less of course, as they are larger. Plants are bacopa monnieri and vallisneria nana (locally collected), val triptera, glosso, and maybe a flowering plant like nyphoides spongiosa.  Planning to use a natural rock/pebble substrate with some sand mixed in. Probably will use some rock hardscape, will collect those from the yarra, and have a piece of driftwood I plan to use already. Just wondering about those fish. And @Dave, when do you plan on shipping plants, shrimp and fish again? As I was probably gonna buy most of the stuff from you guys at AquaGreen.

      yup, I read this thread before posting.  I figure there must be at least two traits that are passed on to make these patterns, but don't know what they are.
