My tanks

Hi
Haven't been on in a while so i thought I'd do an update on my tanks.
Still have my elephant nose he's doing great 6yrs now.
My boraras have new companions, i added 5 clown killifish and micro crabs, all doing great.
Also in this tank my super red longfin bristlenose have bred and I have loads of babies! such cuties.
My betta is still having issues with nipping his tail added new ornaments too hopefully help but no.
Here's some pics Click image for larger version

Forgot to mention the...

Rocket/Clown Killi. How are they doing for you. Are they eating well? Keep reading about how they can be hard to feed /& like live foods.

Thai Micro Crabs, anything special you do for them?

My Thai Micro crabs hide very well or they are gone. They have floating plants roots to hang out in.

My Thai Micro crabs hide very well or they are gone. They have floating plants roots to hang out in.
I'm having no issues with the killi, feeding them on hikari micro pellets,Dennerle micro, frozen baby brine, daphnia frozen and live and frozen tubifex. Morning is pellets night frozen. They're growing well, wish I had more!
I have 5 thai micro crabs love them, the biggest sits in the driftwood under the flow and always comes out for his crab pellets the other's stay hidden more. I don't do anything special for them.
Counted 32 baby plecos at feeding time hopefully I'll sell them all yikes!
And thank you for the welcome back

Not great pics as they're a bit shy at the moment. They're so tiny next to Gonzo only about the size of his tail.
My red longfin bristlenose have had a second batch of babies, they are everywhere so when they get a bit bigger I'll be selling them, also selling mum and dad as I'm keeping a couple of the young.
