Welcome to my blog!

This weblog is my online journal. You'll find my opinions on fishkeeping and probably a few rants about idiots that kill their fish needlessly because they don't listen to others. When the spirit moves me, I may also include longer articles on DIY stuff as well as new fish stuff and general info.

Angel Fry Developing
Well the fry seem to be doing well, if you look close you can see thier bodies are starting to form better now. We still have a ton of them so no shortage of angels in this house!

Angel Fry Update
Well we managed to get through the yolk feedings and now have free-swimming fry. Alot of free-swimming fry! It looks to be at least 50, maybe almost double that...hard to count the little buggers. Here's a pic:

Angels Breeding
Sorry it's been so long since I've blogged, someone got on my case so here I go again.

The angels decided to lay eggs again, but this time I put in a piece of slate in the tank, so they layed the eggs on the slate rather than the filter intake tube. This allowed me to remove the slate from the tank, as all other attempts just made meals for the other fish. Here's a shot of the parents

After putting the slate in a 15g tank, we added Methyline Blue to help the eggs from developing fungus. Only had a few go white and within 3 days we had far too many wigglers to count. They don't look much like angels yet, but after 3-5 days of feeding off of thier yolk sacs, they will be free-swimming and starting to look like angels. Here's a pic of what they look like 3 days after hatching

I'll post an update as soon as I have pics of them swimming.
