yikes, tranced!

I think I speak for most of us here when I say, take pictures from outside the tank.

You live dangerously!  At least wear some armor, or eye goggles.

all kidding aside.....to photo my telmats, I have to turn the room lights out and literally sneak in there, even in the dark.

I might need to invest in a ninja suit w/ a full mask.

I used to raise bettas and bought Atisons fry starter for them. I tried my multi fry on it and they love it and I have a higher % of fry making it to juvie's.

Hi, i am wondering how do you raise the fry?

can you just take the shell out and add into another tank?

or should the parents look after them ? and take them out when they are bigger?

what food should i feed fry?

i have a fluval edge with a pair of meeli and one of the barnacle clusters has some small fry swimming in it...
Lepidiolamprologus meeli
Neolamprologus multifasciatus
