    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    My rams laid eggs last week, YEH!! (pics will be added later today) with the male mainly guarding the eggs with female on odd occasions BUT the eggs disappeared after few days and at the same time one of my angelfish had died with torn fins. Im guessing the rams nipped him for eating the eggs...

    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    Re: Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya. Pic Heavy Cheers guys. Had Mister Starkey pop round a week ago and should flower soon if feeding maintains normal. This is how it has developed so far. There seem to be three nodes altogether, one 1/4 up, half way and then near the surface it has split into two...

    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    mine is doing very well other than starting to nip at some plants. Should hopefully stop when I get a females in their. My water is generally hard but hasn't been an issue so far for the Ram. The ADA Malaya soil makes the water nice and soft which is nice help. Sorry keeps doing it with...

    Some more images of tank with the best shot I could get of my Electric Blue Ram (crap camera). Amazon Sword Stem? New leaf just emerging. Literally came out of nowhere. Is it normal? Plant Growth Week 1 Week 2 Week 3

    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    I kept doing the Malaya spelling wrong on my tablet, Thanks for pointing out. I know there is little ammonia in Malaya so that would mean it would take longer for the filter to cycle? Doesn't matter now as I have had a small bloom of green and brown algae on the rocks so I'm presuming its had...

    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    I was assuming the wrong plants, easerthegeezer, Sorry. The ones nearest to the filter are Alternanthera Reineckii. They are doing really well with liquid carbon only with no decay but has had little growth compared to others, Should develop well over time.

    Not sure forgot to note down the name but my best guess is a form of Ludwiga.

    ?orrible algae problem, advice needed

    Nitrate levels is fine at 5ppm but not 0ppm otherwise plants will not be able to uptake nitrates. Also i would increase easycarbo to 2ml at least for 125L tank as I believe its 1ml for every 50L depending on density of plantation. When adding easycarbo spot drop it over areas where there is...

    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    Re: Juwel Rio 180L ADA Mayala One week later: Mainly notice large amount of root growth. Glosso much more difficult to tell but have no decay of leaves. Fish and shrimp are completely fine and alive. Bacterial bloom if fading away but with the appearance of little browning around the edges...

    Juwel Rio 180L ADA Malaya

    Hi everyone, I am setting up a new tank to replace my 60l tank with a Juwel Rio 180L tank. I have planted the tank straight away to see if the ammonia spike can be avoided and still allow good growth of bacteria in filter as malaya soil leeches little ammonia in comparison to amazonia. I have...

    Cleaning glassware

    A bristlenose plec will clean up the algae quickly. I have 2 adults and about 12 young and never find any algae on the glass. Sorry didn't read it properly. Weak bleach solutionn with warm water is best as others have stated.

    Bristlenose Plec Eggs

    Hi everyone, My bristlenose hatched fine at the start of the month and are developing fine. They're just over a 1cm long and really cute. I think there are about 10 that survived and they are constantly munching on anything edible. They've done a better a job of removing algae than a group of...
