The downside to scuds. I can't believe they ate through a thick anubias like that one! Not to mention they destroyed all my moss and pearlweed. You definitely need something to keep them in check. Guess they had it made in here. Puffers being added hopefully in about a week depending on how meds go.

As soon as I drop in food the more adventurous fry come out of the rocks. They've grown so much!

One of the three surviving Dario Kajal after meds. Originally I had 8 and since they were wild caught I knew they were going to be a gamble. When I got them they were grey and they're supposed to be a rosey color and striped pattern. This one I believe is a male. There's at least one that I think looks like a female and the third one is still growing. I can only find one PDF online that's semi detailed about this species but they're essentially like a Dario Dario in my opinion. Maybe a little more territorial. So far they hunt gut-loaded bladder snails and scuds. Frozen brine shrimp are also a favorite.

I'm going to need to thin out my stock of these metallicus in the coming months. Hopefully I can get the proper licences soon to start shipping some out!

Came home to my first batch of bristlenose eggs! Hard to tell how many the male is guarding inside the cave but there's at least those 4 on the glass!

Momma Girardinus Metallicus dropped another batch last night! If there's one thing that's an identifying feature on these fish it's that bright metallic eye. Even the fry have it!

The focus was off a bit because I had just fed but I found a black chinned male metallic livebearer amongst the fry! The only one it seems. Looking forward to breeding him out.

Haven't shown much of the least killi tank. The colony is slowly growing. There are big momma and little papa hanging out like always while all the fry are hiding in the pearl weed.

Girardinus Metallicus mating dance. This was after I re-added the female after a week of separation. I already have a small batch of fry of these growing out! Hopefully we get some black-chinned variety. Definitely my favorite nano livebearing fish so far!

Found these neocaridina shrimp at a big box chain store and figured I'd try to see how well my water stood with these little guys. Surprisinly with no RO water they have thrived for about 2 months eating every bit of sinking wafer along with the amano and constantly feeding on biofilm. This one looks like it's gonna shed soon. Unfortunately I only got a batch of 3 females so I'm not able to test how well they would spawn. I've called the place where I got them and they haven't had them in stock every time I do. Hopefully I'm able to get a male soon to see if getting a mail-in order from someone reputable would be worth it (while continuing the use of my water and maybe alternative water sources other than an RO system ). Even using purified water jugs for a 20 gal would be manageable with a planted tank. What kind of water do you use for your shrimp?
