That,s a really good idea! I think I will just have to go to the dollar store and get me some poster board. Although poster board does lose it's color with prolonged exposure to the light, especially black poster board.
I also plan on upgrading my lighting on the 29 gallon. The 10 gallon has 50 watts, but the 29 only has 17 watts. I know it's kind of sad. It looks bright though. I want at least 30 watts. AT LEAST.
I wanted to put floating plants, but as soon as I put some Duckweed
, the fish ate all of them!! I now have some Duckweed
in the 10 gallon, so hopefully if I put a lot of Duckweed
at once in the 29 they won't be able to eat it all and then there will be some left!
The 29 gallon is cleaner than the 10 gallon. I have never seen any algae in the 29 gallon! The pair of kribs spawned, but I am not sure if they ate the wigglers or moved them. They are kind of guarding a little ceramic plant ring thing. I didn't think they moved their wigglers, so that's why I think they ate them. The black phantom tetras spawn a lot, but the eggs get eaten right away :( Maybe I will try to breed them one day, in a breeder tank. The swordtails breed, but again the fry get eaten. The male Dwarf Gourami
tries to build bubble nests but there is nowhere to build it and there is too much water movement. I was hoping the floating plants would help! The female Dwarf Gourami
shows lots of interest in him!! But he chases her away :( The Chinese Algae Eater
doesn't really eat algae. He just enjoys himself by up rooting plants and bothering the kribs. He's terrified of them though and I anchored all the plants down so he can't uproot them :)
Still having picture problems, but I will take more once I get the background.
