Well nearly the worst pics ever. Guppies aren't cooperating. My "best" Guppy pic is of one of the Guppies with the worst condition tail!!! Of course.
But you can get an idea of the color and pattern and a couple pics of a swishing tail to show how long they are.
Anyway added the rest of the tank full of water and started the AC
110 and added a cloverleaf seasoned sponge filter. The water was REALLY cloudy and it was a bunch of gunk from some half dying plants and old food at the bottom. Which I will clean out tomorrow, but added one Biozorb filter pouch and have a pretty clear tank in only a couple hours!!!
One thing I did was take a piece of the needlepoint plastic canvas from the craft store (when I was trying to make a moss wall) Made a tube out of it and placed it around the intake tube because there are pretty large holes but also because the tip of it broke off and it can suck up small floating plants and probably fish as it is a pretty strong filter.
So I made a tube out of it and sewed it up with half of a prefilter sponge in the bottom, and originally in the top but I couldn't get it to fit around the intake so pushed it down into the middle to add stability. This will allow larger particles to get sucked up and help clean the tank, whereas the prefilter sponge is too fine to let the filter clean the water of the larger particles! I think you can see part of it in one of the pics.
The better pics that came out were of the Super Red Short Fin Albino BN. Oh boy are they cute. And a tiny bit more orange than the pics came out.
Without further ado... (almost worst pics ever)
Here is part of the plastic tube
Poor guy needs some mending
Is my Guppy pregnant? lol!
SR SF BN
Haven't seen any dead ones either!!! Woot!
Will try for real pics of the Guppies...
