    Storms Diary

    Post by Storm on Thu Jun 10, 2010 12:04 am

    Well here we go:

    This is going to run for ages i can just tell, as the male just does not want to get his fin over lmao.

    9th June: Scrubbed the spawning tank and have been feeding both male and female frozen blood worm, i filled the tank with water from the community tank and will leave the tank running over night, I have added fish tank cycle/and a water trement thing. So will leave tank runing over night and add the male tomorow (With kel's advice?). I only have some bubble wrap for the nest sight so will try that again Smile.

    Well he has another strong nest going now, and he is working very fast. It is above the heater although it was last time and it was massive. Smile
