Have I done enough Bubble-proofing?

13 posts in this topic

Hopefully I plopped this in the right section.

For the past few weeks, I've been considering getting a bubble eye to go along with my tele,once moved into his/her own tank.(For as some may know, he's currently in the "main" 30G with my other 3).

I know bubble eyes need some extra care and precautions taken,so they don't damage their bubbles, but what I'm wondering is: have I done enough?

I've been watching Johann (the tele)since I got him, and he seems to be pretty laid back,so I'm not expecting a problem from him.

The tank will be another bare bottom, and will have a combination of silk and live plants housed in bowls.

I have pictures of said things here:

(Ignore the plants inside the bowls in those. They went into the 10G.)

The silk plants will be going into the big bowl,and I'm thinking a couple bananas to go into the smaller ones.

I also plant on getting a sponge to cover the filter intake.

So,what do you think? Is there more that can/needs to be done?

I think it all looks fine to me :) good luck :) oh and give a good feel along the stems of the silk plants if they feel rough I would avoid them ;)

One thing with bubble eyes. make sure your intake has some kinda of cover over it. This will keep the sacs from getting sucked in the filter :(

Awesome! Thank you!

And I will, koko. I plan on getting an AC sponge to fit over it.

Bah. How hard could it be to find a bubble eye around here?

Apparently pretty darn hard. I see the little suckers almost everywhere when I'm not looking to get a fish, but as soon as I want one, poof! They're all gone. Dx

Maybe I should just stop looking so much. xD

I'm trying to learn patience with getting my Endlers. Theres a store that's breeding them,but I have to wait 2 weeks before they're selling them again.

I found one today at Dave's,but just my luck the poor little dude was stuck on the intake,dead. =/
