    Hey Brenton,
    I know nothing about plants but am having the same dramas as you trying to get some plants in my sorority and wild tank to stay alive so if you find a solution please post it as I will if i can sort it out

    All going well I should have plenty. Don't think any will be MG Until F2 I believe. Could be wrong though

    I just thought it has been a while since I have done a spawn log, so I might as well do this one. I'm fairly excited about this one. I put these two together on Wednesday. Girl was released on wed arvo as the male was already conditioned for another girl and the girl was a veteran having spawned for someone else before. Both were fed on dried black worms as thats all I feed now
    Here is the boy, not a good photo as he is in the spawn tank. I got him of jha a while ago


    And the girl after spawn. A little torn but he was fairly gentle. She was bought from extravagant bettas, i chose her because she was bigger than all my other girls, possibly a jumbo, has good form and i love Mustards


    They were spawned in a 28L storage container with clear sides.


    I had eggs on Thursday, Tails on Saturday so should be free swimming tomorrow when the boy will be taken out. I estimate about 150 now so should get a lot to chose from. Would be nice if I could end up with a giant MG HM

    Here are the eggs. I couldnt find them on ebay so went to his store
    http://stores.canadianaquafarm.com/-strse-Brine-Shrimp-Eggs/Categories.bok
    And this is the hatcheries I bought. They are only 300 ml but I find I don't get the waste

    I have never not got a good hatch rate and its easy with the salt in there, I don't even dechlorinate the water

    If you want to hatch your own BBS the easiest way I have found is to buy the ones with the salt in the bag. I get them from Canadian aqua farm on eBay and they hatch every time. I know it won't help you now but will for next time. They cost more but i can raise two spawns on one 1/2 pound bag. Also the hatcheries on eBay from china for $15 work well too but take a month to get here. As for the growing at different rates I have no idea. I have the same thing with my spawns. They tend to even out more after jarring

    That is awesome! I have been tempted to get a nano reef for a while and looking at yours has probably put me offer the edge.

    I bought this giant hmpk girl a week and a half ago and when I got her she wasn't real happy. After putting her in the barracks over night she jumped and ended up in the 3 ft sump. I put a heater on for her and she picked up but after going away for the weekend I came home to this.



    Does anyone know what is hanging our of her and the best way to treat it?
