Well new plants went in yesterday! 2 Water Sprites, and I transplanted my ruffle plant (name?) from my 30 gal.

They seem very happy and it looks so pretty!

How are the little guys? I just got some new ones, a couple wild caught blues and 4 electric blue so I hope I get a viable pair out of the lot.

They are doing great they seem much more relaxed with the new plants! 2 big water sprites and a ruffle plant (not sure of the actual name). Im hoping this will help them from eating the eggs the next time they spawn.

Plants probably won't help. Artificially raised rams are notoriously bad parents and the only thing that might help them is experience and many attempts of getting it wrong before they are successful.

Well maybe one of these times they will let them hatch. . You'll have a surprise if they do!
