Helmet Snails & New Plants

Dropped in 6x helmet snails and some new plants today which are Echinodorus rubin narrow leave, echinodorus rubin, echinodorus red flame, hopefully see the end of the algae soon too.

The male zebra is still looking after his wrigglers well šŸ™‚ shall try get some pics at some point.

Inkbird ITC-306UK ThermostatĀ Installed

I setĀ up an inkbird ITC-306 thermostat to prevent heater lock and tank wipeout. I have also put a second heater in the tank, this should stop any heater fail of lock on or the tank getting cold if one heater stops working. It’s good to have a little over protection. Sorry for the pic quality from my iPhone 7.

3x More L134 Arrive

Some sad news two of the five wild caught L134’s I got passed away due to hollow belly šŸ™ I wormed the tank and over fed and filtered for a week and the remaining three seem ok now.

Today I got three more from Orwell Aquatics (Link in my link section), here are some pics. The current group is at six fish now.

L134 Wild Caught Group

Seeing as I have gave up the L129’s I’ve went back to the L134 Leopard Frog Pleco’s. I managed to get five wild caught ones today from G.M.Aquatics and Marcin was kind enough to deliver them to my house. Here are some pics of what we believe are 3x females and 2x males. Not great pics due to iPhone sorry.

Cave topper care packageĀ 

I received a nice little care package in the post from my friend Irina who lives in Germany, she makes many hand made caves for plecos, shrimps and other items too, let me know if you want her contact details to get anything šŸ™‚ a little pic of what came. Thank you Irina.

L129 Fry Growing & Corydoras Metae Fry

Just a little update on my L129 fry, managed a half decent pic today, so here it is, hope you enjoy it, not often I can get a pic of them as the dad likes to keep them hidden still.

And I spotted one of the Corydoras Metae fry out and about in the tank too.

L129 & Cory Metae Fry

The dad is hiding and guarding his young a little too well, managed to almost get a pic of the youngsters, if you look close on this picture you can see a few of the young ones to the back right of the cave, hoping to get some better pics soon.

Here also is a bad pic of a Corydoras Metae fry which is also in the same tank.
