The babies will live happily in the bottom.of the filter grazing if the do get sucked up the inflow just be sure to check when you clean your filter out I can have up to 20 in the pre filter tube just fish them out pop them.back in to the tank

Yes. I'm a happy grandad! Scape has come along brilliantly and the livestock are obviously happy. Nice one.

Wood is lovely @Deano3
And I really like the way your offering your trimmings for postage it's an expensive hobby and not all can afford to keep buying what can become expensive plants I think it's great to give back to the people of our community much respect mate

Thanks so much jay and rather than binning it as no room to replant may aswel try help someone out and hopefully kn future some people can repay the favour when i need some plants .

I will need help on how to go about it i imagine just freezer sealed bags and spray with water and post.

Thanks dean

Maybe wrap the plants in soaked paper towels to retain moisture? You could try sealing the plastic if you have a heat sealer.

I might contact you in future for the orange or red Rotalas. I currently have plants on the way so I'll wait until they settle in.

When I send plants out I normally do it in a sealed jiffy bag with the plants in a sealed freezer bag with a few squirts of water first class postage is 3.50 I think so in all would probs cost £5 to post so I would ask for postage to be paid for if you out them in the for sale/wanted forum
Tank looks good with the trim bro

Got rid of the plants cheers jay, also did a big maintenance session today and going to up the maintenence as getting a lot of staghorn algae, found a great way to clean the pre filter sponges by placing them in beetween my 2 palms and rolling them colour coming out was like tea haha still not got round to buying course sponges.

We were thinking about moving so not rescaped but thats on the back burner at minute so may rescape soon. Wonder if worth buying a few bucephalandra plants to establish in here first ? Also some plants looking a bit off and discolour and just not healthiest so upped the ferts but going to do more maintenance as got a bit lazy lately .

Also removed the simensis 53b from left hand side and found 8 baby shrimp in prefilter when cleaning plenty in tank so looking forward to having a bigger group of them thanks to nick

Thanks dean
