  1. Breeding Neon Tetras..... A Fresh Start

    I decided to start over with this project and have been cycling a 10 gallon tank for the last 3 weeks using an already cycled sponge filter and some panties stuffed with established substrate so we are good to go now.
    This tank is setup different than the last tank and hopefully it will stop the adult fish from eating the eggs. I have made a false bottom using egg crate and plastic mesh so that the eggs will fall through and land safely on the bottom where i should be ...

  5. Breeding My Kribensis (Day 11 - 20)

    DAY 11. . .
    Today i decided to make my own fish food, a quick google search gave me a few recipes. I mixed whole shrimp with peas, spinach, zucchini some liquid multi vitamin and Spirulina powder and out came what looked like a giant booger ! I hope it tastes better than it smelt !! I poured it into some ziploc bags and placed them in the freezer. A few hours later the food was ready and dinner was about to be served. I decided to try it out on my Platys first in another tank. . . just ...
