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.

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

      Hey everyone from SKF,  I'm a long time lurker; but recently have gotten back into the shrimp keeping hobby in the past 12 months. I'm after any constructive advice to help guide me in the right direction. I've kept some blue bolts in a 1 foot cube which has been somewhat successful; however due to an ongoing infestation of numerous hitch-hikers. I've decided to start again. There are some amphipods which are now breeding quite rapidly. Some worms which are swimming around in the aquarium, planaria which i've tried to keep at bay with No Planaria (the product doesn't work after only been used once or twice in 6 months, worked wonders the first time around). I'm planning to fish out the blue bolts and acclimatize them into a bigger tank whilst i restart the tank. I'm after any advice to see what is the best way to restart; my plans so far are as listed. 1) Remove Blue bolts and place in another tank 2) Siphon out all the gravel and bin it 3) Toss the media in the HOB; leave sponge filter in aquarium 4) Run the filter system for 1 week with a mix of bleach and water to fully rid of all the problems 5) Drain the tank and then place some new ADA soil into the base of the aquarium 6) Fill the tank with RO and seachem prime for another week 7) Empty tank and fill with RO remineralised with Salty Shrimp, new media in the HOB, sponge filter to remain the same. 8 ) undertake a 4-6 week fishless cycle   9) Reintroduce 20% of the BB colony; wait 2 weeks 10) If all is well reintroduce the other 80% after. Thinking it will take 6-8 weeks before i can start again. Thoughts?

      I have used this product for the past 2 months with some good results with my blue bolts, there has been higher success rate with the shrimplets and in my opinion the survival rates are higher than they were previously. I've put in an order for some more to keep me going; i was first introduced to the product in an interview i read with Glenn Ng and decided to try the product myself. I use the recommended dosage once a day might skip a few days here and there, stronger hues in the blue from my juvenile BB's.

      I managed to buy some kind of filter replacement kit at my LFS. Handy thing was that it come with a grill, so I just cut it to shape and shoved it in. Love the lil guys. Was thinking of giving it another week, then maybe ordering some cheery and amano shrimp from Pro-Shrimp. None of my LFS sell amano unfortunately.

      Hmmmm, I might not risk it until the population explodes a bit more

      There is always a risk with fish but most think they are 90% safe with Pygmy Cory and will just eat the odd baby shrimp accidentally!  Simon
