    Speaking of snails, I like assassin snails.
  3. Lots of fun Met with someone too and through her, I might be able to send off fishes to you all!... If I got any good ones :D
  4. that moment when the test trial of bbs hatching succeeded and the real deal fails....

      take two of BBS fail still. No microworm.. Hmm.. egg yolk? XD

      Have. To. Experiment..

  5. 10L with a heater sounds like a perfect place for Betta ;p You can probably put a sponge filter and keep some of shrimps in it though.
  6. Welcome to the forum, Calico! Ask anything you want! Lots of us are happy to help :)
  7. I wish I could! But there are spawns to attend and hotel that had been booked! Not to mention airplane >_<
  8. Welcome Louizor, we're very friendly here. Steep learning curve when you're trying to breed fish successfully but keep at it! :)
  9. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat, really?! we're all going to aquarama but can't meet up?!
  10. 26th to 30th?! What about the 1st-2nd?! That'd be when I go there! >_> Yes, I do have facebook, it's mail4felix@gmail.com if you guys want to add, or let me know yours and I'll add you! Just let me know that it's you (because lots of random people whose name I've never heard of added me and I never approve them) I MISSES VICTORIA BETTA TOO. My god, there are so many distractions here that have kept me from breeding anything. I miss breeding stuffs, and I shall get back to it right away soon!!!!!! Oh, and about the culture.. or prepare lots of toothpicks and tell her to use new one each time XD
  11. Well, a bit more than that for me. I'm going to be there on the 1st-2nd I think
  13. Hey! You guys going there too? I'm going to be there for 2 days Hope to see you all there if you're going!!
  14. They look really awesome. Can I steal your photography skills for a moment here?
  15. Haha! Thank you, Ness! I've been absent from forum a bit, I know! Thinking of the directions to take. The mother of the first spawn has been sold. The father just had his second spawn yesterday. With different girl of course; but I believe it's the sister from mother of the first spawn. ... The two spawn are about 8 days old in difference! I got the pic of the father taken down (had to borrow someone's digital camera); not used to use this camera; so pic quality will be very awkward. Not to mention I can't take pic of any of the fry.. I'll post it later on!
  16. That uh.. test strip that can be used. I'm not sure about its availability, however! Yellow water doesn't mean low pH, that's I know of. I've had yellow water with pH sitting at 7-8 earlier this year. Crazy, I know..
  17. Well, I'm not sure how to describe the HMPK; but he's pretty good, form wise at least. The female is pretty standard; SD, not quite HM, and a bit weird topline; but she's the best female I got at the moment. If you google 'hmpk lavender', the first youtube video looks like him; though; its not mine! The fry has hatched! Though not all; he spawned with her for about 3 or so hours. He's so far being a good dad; let's hope he doesn't eat them. I wish I can put up pic; but all I got is crappy phone camera. My digital one was stolen earlier in the year! Still; it's been a while!
  18. I've tried mixing both of them. Though both parties were healthy, from my experience, discus are far more passive than the angels. Angels were really greedy that they ate most; if not all; the food before the discus get them. If I remember correctly, I think there were 4 discus to 4 (or 5) angels. Since mixing, the discus were gradually getting thinner, so they got separated again.
  19. When I had my HM spawn, I got plenty of coppers with red wash Good luck with the pair!
  20. Thanks for the insight, all! Razzi, i'm located in Jakarta. Would be good if you can hook me up with a breeder around :D
  21. CTPK! That's an awesome suggestion. The thought didn't come to my mind! I was thinking maybe crossing the CT girl with the slightly combtail SD/D Butterfly Yellow boy and uh.. what would I end up with? That reminds me too, how did your attempt to create CTPK with Busman go? The plakad above the orchidy looking PK seems like a yellow orchid? lol (I think patterns look similar to the orchidy plakad but spread on yellow instead of black) What would yellow orchid plakad X black orchid CT produce?
  22. So I was window shopping yesterday and found these kids. Bought 5 of them, and 3 of them are plakads! They're not big enough for spawning (or at least 3 of them aren't), but here's hoping sometimes in the future! Problem is, they didn't sell any girls. So well.. I'm still kinda stuck with 1 CT black orchid girl which is now beaten up by the CT male. HM Yellow Delta/SD Yellow (I think this one has slight combtail - but has butterfly pattern. The hardest to take pic, so the head isn't included in the pic..) The Plakads!! This one was sold as MG, but I'm not sure. Could be female. He/She wasn't interested in flaring when I took picture of him/her. What kind of girl should I look for the boys above? (especially to improve those boys' forms) Colour wise, would a copper girl match with any of them? What about opaque? Thanks for looking! :D
  23. How long it takes for them to wrap would depends on each pair. I've had a CT pair in the past that wrapped after about 3-4 weeks of introduction (then again the eggs were not fertile). I've had a HM pair in the past that wraps after about 2 weeks of introduction of the pair (with nest + vertical bars). My current CT pair basically got the bubble nest going and vertical bar the night after introduction, but still refuses to wrap now, a week later. But I've also read and heard of miraculous wrap where you just introduce the two and they wrap straight away lol. Never happened to me though.
  24. Congrats on the spawn, Ness! (Now I kinda know how you felt when HiTower spawned! ) Tails should be due soon? :cheer:

    Dead Females!

    I think these info would help too: Size of the tank? Current inhabitant of the tank? Filtration of the tank? How did you cycle the tank? Do you use water dechlorinator? Some fish may be able to withstand chlorine from tap water, but it'll, at least, stress them out and reduce their immune system Did you quarantine? Any new plants/ornaments? New things may bring in disease without proper cleaning Feeding frequency and how much? Overfeeding can degrade water quality. Pretty sure there's more, but it's a good start, I think.
