  4. Wow! Beautiful fish. Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  5. I have some red root floater for sale. It requires medium to high light. It prefers slower flowing water as it is delicate. The leaves become redder in high light but the roots are pink to dark red. It likes Iron fertilization. I will post ten new cuttings for ?5.00 they will take a while to adjust to different water but then will grow fast. Postage included in price. Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  6. They are still very much alive and swimming today (phew!) you live and learn ay! Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2

  8. What a muppet! I feel terrible now. I should have looked it up first Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  9. I never knew it was poisonous to animals!! I won't be doing that again!! Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  10. Just discovered my fish go mad for Avocado!!! Put a tiny bit in and they started fighting over it so i put some more in. Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  11. You want mostly fast growing stem plants, some rosette plants and floaters like duckweed or water lettuce. I made the mistake of adding too few plants to start with. Make sure you put loads in and you should be ok Also Walstad says you can add shrimp straight away. I would recommend letting the plants settle in for a few weeks and testing your water to make sure its cycled. I nearly killed my shrimp Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  12. That's good then. If i get too many i'm sure the goldfish will be more than happy to keep their numbers down Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  13. Cool! Thanks Fang ^_^ There seems to be a few of them in there. They must have come in on a plant. I didn't bleach any because i wanted to preserve any beneficial bacteria on them. I did have a problem with some sort of fuzz or mold and i nearly tore it down and started again. I was so annoyed. It seems to have found a balance now. Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  14. Added a few more plants. The hair grass seems to be filling out. I'm very pleased. I've got an airline in to provide a little water movement. Apparently the shrimp won't breed in still water. Seem to have adopted some snails. Not sure what they are. Thanks for looking. Sent from my GT-S5830i using Tapatalk 2
  15. i've done that to. Have moved the out the way now.
  16. I bleached my used ehiem let it dry out thoroughly. I had to buy new pipes because they were too gross and put new ebay cheapy media in. Its cool because you can put in whatever you want.
  17. It sounds like you might have the larger species of apple snail pomacea canaliculata (i think thats how you spell it) they can grow to the size of a coke can! You can look them up. I don't think you can stop them eating your plants. Its the smaller types like pomacea diffusa that won't eat live plants. Www.applesnail.net is a good site
  18. Nice tank. They look very happy ^_^
  19. Thanks. It has no filter. The plants act as a natural filter. You can find lot of info if you Google "Walstad shrimp bowl" you should be able to find a pdf file to tell you his to do it make sure you use tons of plants Oooooohhh lemme see!!!!
  20. Thanks Thank you. I'm very pleased with it You should do it. The shrimp are very cool to watch. I you have a good window you can do without the lamp
  21. Mine ate them by day two and proceeded up root the rest and eat the rest out of the weight.... I'm going to try onion plant Good luck. Mine seem to destroy everything accept crypt
