Thanks! I had a hard time catching her . Ended up taking out all the rocks, but she still had the modules to hide under.

They look bigger already! What are you feeding them? Their little bellies look like they've been eating brine shrimp. Very Happy

Yes, they are growing fast. I give them frozen cyclops and a little crushed Aquatic Nature Exel color pellets at the first stage.

Put the fry into a tank today. The water is still cloudy after treating it with easy life.

Can you tell us about the tank -- size, background...? It looks great! Is easy life a conditioner or a cycle starter?

Thanks Jeff, but there is nothing special with this tank. It´s only a 29g with a pretty cheap background. I was thinking of making this into a shellie tank later on.

Thanks Betty! Easylife is magic in a bottle. It´s a fluid filtermedium. I never liked stuff like this before, but I´ve been proven wrong. Where I live we have among the best tap water in Europe, so I did´nt think stuff like this could have any possitive effects at all. But you can actually see the effect on the fish. Since I started treating the water they have gotten brighter colors and also acts more healthy. The water also get crystal clear after a treatment. There is a cheaper copy that cost half the price of easylife. That´s Happy life.

Seems to be some sort of clay in it. Maybe zeolith. It also neutrlizes chloramine.

Still a little cloudy, but put in a second tube for more light.

Had to make some research for the background. It´s Polish and has the name aqua szut. I have the same in my 66g. It´s a very hard background. Destroyed several blades for my father trying to cut it. Finally I took a side grinder to finish the job.
