For those interested, we've yet to find any more dead fry against the filter, so hopefully the more frequent water changes of late have corrected that issue!
We went past the LFS
today and picked up some Hikari First Bites, they seem to like it.
Also picked up:
2 x electric blue ram
4 x guppies (3x females, 1x male)
We completely fell in love with the rams, and brought them home - research suggests that water conditions and temperature isn't exactly compatible between guppies, platys and rams - but we'll do our best to keep them alive and well.
We've moved the temperature to 26 degrees celcius, but might move it to 28 tomorrow (we understand that guppies and platies will reproduce at a greater rate at higher temps, but the rams need warmer water to do well).
