I really like the new layout of the wood. Great place for the fish to hide & spawn.
crazy shot with the attinic light.
Looks like you have aliens in your tank :bling:
Wow how did I miss this thread...It looks a lot like this....Paracheirodon axelrodi
Great bio-tope, very well done and true to it's inspiration!!
yes, definitely one of the best biotopes i've seen...keep it up! i would just like to ask, how does actinic help planted tanks? im sorry for my ignorance, we don't have actinic readily available in our country..
Roy, that's a great site for inspiration for biotopes ideas.
lol thats what inspired me to actually put plants in my tank!!
well heres a couple of pictures i took a few days ago. I put a band new layer of leaf litter on the bottom. havent taken pictures yet but i will get around to it this week.
What do you guys think? my fishes got ick and im going to treat it tomorrow. :Blah:
great effect on the pebbles...the tannins really make the fish stand out. for ich, i think raising temp will do the trick...
very nice biotope.
i raised the temp up to 90 degrees and its still there. what do you suggest i raise it to?
thats good enough..maybe you could add salt too.. how many days is it already? maybe the best way, is to put the infected fish on a quarantine tank and add salt on it.
base on my experience, the ich went away after 3 days on 29 to 31 deg celsius (about 84-87 deg F)... did not put any salt on it though.
i noticed it on monday. its going to be almost impossible for me to get the infected ones out. i got this medication so hopefully it clears up.
i see. hopefully everything will be fine...
i really want to get my DSLR so i can take pictures of my tank! lol
well i tried raising the temp. i tried medication and its still there?!? what gives? im going to do a 50% water change after i get home from work. hopefully it clears up tomorrow.
Tank is look really good, keep it up.
I was wondering what kind of long leafy plants look good. I want something that would extend to the top of the tank. Has to be from SA though. any help?
Some south american plants
Hope this helps
from my experience with ich ( i have had A LOT of experience before planted tanks) the cyst will go away in a day or two of high temps. the meds are for treating the tank after the cyst fall off NOT to get it off the fish. the cyst will fall off in their natural life cycle and high heat speeds this process. this was the most dangerous time for my fish because when the ich falls off it leaves open wounds in its place. keep the meds going until it says to stop. the ich gets in the sand and can start over on new fish if not stopped.
sorry probably already know all this but im bored)
In my humble experience the above is what i learned.
Separate names with a comma.
