You can breed the best fish in the world ,but if no one wants them then what?
Kind of why I got the angels along with the hope they are special....
I hate to say , as I am not even really beginning with the angels and apistos yet, but I crave a popular live bearer.
I miss my showa swords...
And pulling FRY every day!!!!
It helps to feel like people recognize your stuff. I had some multis raised last year and ended up trading them to my professor because it seemed no one wanted them, now I'm doing angels because I'm a sellout too Although seems like suddenly EVERYONE wants multis

It sure doesn't hurt when so many think you got it going on to want what you have specifically...
So many of you members (my friends in hobby) have been a HUGE asset in my ram breeding.
Positive motivation can work wonders even on an old dog...

Not so stoned???
It is Tuesday evening Phil...lol!
I couldn't even find where you got Poppas post(his thread is a jungle!).
While your passing by how much humic acid do you use , how often.
No measurements really.
Just I add till I note coloring(not black tea ,but yellow) and it could be faded,clear water tomorrow or next day.
I can just keep adding within reason??
I am changing water on tanks I use HA in every or every other day.

Wow I'm not sure why that even posted here and no not so stoned. The pain has pretty much given way to stiffness, well that's excluding the ginormus bruise on my chest and left shoulder.

I had to play with measurements for the HA, you need to be kind of careful with it so you don't cause a crash. I'm adding 2-5 ml per 10 gallons every water change.

I definitely have not exceeded 5ml per 10g.
Strong stuff!
You don't notice it fading?
I can't explain where it would go(no carbon or chemical media at all).

Ok maybe I haven't been using as much humic acid as I thought.
I checked that I was using my smallest syringe,2ml....
So I haven't hammered any tanks yet....well....
I set up a 20t that I have right next to the 55 ,where they can see each other as I have seen first hand how well breeding fish notice their neighbors.
I added about an inch of rinsed PFS and a couple terra cotta pots and HA.
Tank is pretty yellow but test within 1 point TDS(111/110) of the 55g!
Sneaker male and his girl moved!
Hope this was the right thing to do.
I know there are at least two sets of wigglers/fry in the coco fiber potliner in the 55 but can't see them and don't think the females will let them out...
Really thought I saw one female trying to push ???? back under the pot into the fiber...
The sneaker has been all over the tank.
It will be interesting to see how long it takes him to color up....
Still slowly lowering the tds in both tanks by making 25-33% waterchanges ...

Not one day after transferring a pair to the 20t ...
WE HAVE EGGS!


This is the 'sneaker' male and I hope the right girl?
Kind of thought I got wrong girl last night as the one in the 20 was hiding and being chased HARD??
At that time I saw another female on the sneaker males end of the 55....
I quickly thought I had caught the wrong female and actually made the change in under 1 minute!
Soooo do we think I got the right female????
Would she lay eggs so quickly if she didn't like the male AND
Is this a male (on the left)????
I have seen the red dot at his tale before and was also part of my questionable ID..

Wait CB can you define for me what a sneaker male is?

Congrats on the eggs! Looking forward to seeing you raise them!
