Thanks to you sir, it's all your fault

That is a slightly smaller version of what can be found on the link you provided. It's all push fit so is easily upgraded should I need to. All I need is a plug (currently being "rescued" from a radio) and we are away!

I'm serious though

They even "donated" a few bits to my cause, namely the black strainers (not sure what they are) and a silly bit of hose. No glue required! Easily upgraded. Some modifications were necessary.
That's awesome! Great job. If that works I may have to setup a new tank just for hillstream loaches lol.

I would use another phrase but, it is very easy to do! Meet you in the loach line!

Flow rig test, take 1.

Otherwise ok.

Talking I'm going to be a dad!

I have waited a long time for this picture!
Corydoras paleatus female, clasping fertilized adhesive eggs between her ventral fins ready for placement.

I didn't miss it, lots off eggs, lots of activity, lots more eggs to follow!

Congrats. I'm glad you got to see the whole show and catch some of it for us to enjoy too. How's the sick Cory doing?

She's sick but alive. I think isolation is helping (resting from breeding?) she is being treated as a precautionary measure, hit or miss I'm afraid. She eats and sometimes appears to act normally. Quietly hopeful.

Haha. I'm intrigued by her progress now. read something on planet catfish where a guy writing a book on cories asks for people to list the issues they've had. Mystery disease comes up a lot. One guy said dumping his cory in brackish water gave the fish a complete recovery in 24 hours

On peppered cories?
* Chilodonella. Treatment was 25ppm formalin in the aquarium. The fish were free of symptom within an hour of administering the formalin.
* "Mystery disease". One individual became progressively more ill over a period of weeks until he lost equilibrium and couldn't control his swimming. Basically in desperation I moved him to a brackish water aquarium (about 3 ppt salinity) and in 24 hours he had recovered completely. To be on the safe side I kept him in that brackish water aquarium for six months before letting him re-join his group. I have no idea what the problem was, though.

There weren't many posts on that page but if she starts losing control of her swimming it seems like it's close to the end for them. Maybe you could keep some brackish water handy as a last resort or try making the water a little more brackish now and see if she picks up.

Maybe the brackish set may work? Nothing else seems to be doing any good. I will bear that in mind, cheers, cheers, cheers.

This is really cool stuff. I hadn't read this thread before. I can't wait to look at the pics on the real computer.
