Omg Eggs!

Recommended Posts

I left the back wall of the tank with algae on it after my tropicals were gone for the fry to munch on. Well, its turned into that thread like stuff. Will they eat that or should I pull it out? It's rather unsightly and kind of taking over.

That video looks awesome Erin :D

Are you talking about the string algae? It doesn't harm them but if you want to remove some, then go for it :D

I can't wait to see them as they get bigger :heart

:heart Thanks Jen!

Yes I am talking about string algae. Its so ugly!! :ignore I could remove that portion and leave the regular green algae for them.

That's what I'd do especially as that mossy algae is so yummy and healthy for them :D I reakon it makes the tank look cool also - I'm thinking of doing something similar on one of my tanks, just having the back wall turn green. I just can't figure out which one is all :D

I dont mind the regular stuff as it just stays on the walls but this stuff is out of control! I think its tinting my water a bit green too and I want to see my babies!! :D

It drives me nuts too Sharon!! I don't let it grow in any of my other tanks. Im in there scrubbing twice a week on my 55 and 30! I think my bristlenoses keep it under control in the 75.

Oh, when is the recommended age to move them to the bigger tank once I have it set up and cycled?

Thanks Daniel and Sharon!! :)

The parents are my choco pom pom(dad, 9") and my orange/white telescope(mommy, about 5 1/2")! You can see their pics if you go back to the 1st and 2nd pages of this thread. This should be interesting. :rofl Its funny because the water isnt green but the algae covering the back wall makes it look that way. Yuck! :rolleyes:

Definitely start a thread for your fry! I would love to watch them grow up. :heart

I plan to go back and read this all again so I can see the parents. 15 pages takes a while to read though. :rofl

That last set of pics is awesome Erin - you can really see those little babies well and they're just to itty bitty :heart:crying:

Has your sponge filter turned all green? Mmmm, yummy :D And if the new tank is ready for them - then move 'em on over. You can just swim them into a bowl and transfer them. Will you use about 30% of their water?

I'll have the tank set up very soon for them. If Im supposed to use 30% of the water from the 10, then I will!! Yes the sponge has turned nice and green. LOL!
