Re: How many ottos for a 55Gal tank

Different but related question. So does a quarantine tank for ottos also need to be heavily planted? Could it just be filled with floating plants like guppy grass, cabomba, etc?

Re: First spawn of L397

What is your TDS? I think I read somewhere on this forum that hard water makes the eggshells hard so fry have trouble hatching.

Has anyone tried Kokedama java moss wrapped Amazon Sword w/ plecos?java moss wrapped Amazon Sword

So I bought from Petco yesterday an Amazon Sword wrapped in in java moss (aquatic kokedama?). My guess is that the sword is still in one of those slotted pots use for hydroponics, with just java moss growing on it.

Re: My plecos arent eating

Mine likes blanched zuchinni. Maybe try rubbing the zuchinni with cut garlic (which acts like an appetite stimulant). Or try Thera+ New Life Spectrum (which has garlic).
