Easy day.

Qt1/2/3 all the same, -10+10 litres
45litre egg tank, -2+3
Puffer +1 RO

Night feed.
Puffer ate bloodworms like spaghetti, interesting. Same thing yesterday, accidentally ate sinking carnivore pellets, does not yet recognise these as food. He knows what bloodworms are.

This is the bit I don't like, waiting on a seemingly empty tank.
Will they hatch? How many will survive? How many will have deformity?
Same questions every time. Two weeks to go.

i have not yet, i am still debating what to do with it. since it is acrylic, it would be easy to drill so I'm thinking maybe a nano reef with a 5 gallon sump and fill the drawer with rubble rocks. i saw someone on another forum with an itank 5g nano reef and it looked pretty sweet

Waiting is always a test. It's always the same, just as your about to give up, life appears!

There is a more detailed account on my flickr page. A complete set of the spawning process is detailed there along with build and progress pics. The set is called "my fishes and fish house build"

Thank you for your compliments.

Not a good day overall.

12 Dec, Thursday.

So, I entered fish house, airline not in qt1, (very dry) dead fish on floor, dead fish in tank. That's 2 more dead out of six, the shop have agreed one replacement as yet to be collected, so maybe four will have survived. Horrible accident? Normally everything is screwed down, the air pump I am using on this tank seems to rotate in circles. It is going in the bin. Airline more secured.
Rheophile tank, rig mods complete (I thought), length extended, added centre pipe, fixed strainer attachment by extending fixing. Super snug strainer fit, no glue required. Flow better, it seems now that flow rotates in a circular motion after a few minutes. Bubbles have changed direction but it is still not laminar, I will try fitting a second pump to balance up flow down the tank, this may need the flow control valve fitting to both pumps. Max flow will increase to 1540 litres per hour. Lights fitted to tank.

Early evening,
Qt 1 -8+5 litres. Filter complete, disaster two dead fish. (Jumped ship, no O2)
Qt 2 -10+10
Qt 3 -10+10

Late evening,
Qt 1/2/3 +5
120litre, +12
130litre -30+20 rig test and add sand.
Puffer +1 RO
750litre -100+100
45 litre egg tank +2

Night feed.
