cardinals will be fine in 25C but if your thinking about putting them in that tank (i havent read the full journal :oops: )
i wouldnt, they will be too big, look at some of the micro rasboras or shrimp.

Nick, i think he was on about cardinal shrimps ;)

Yeah, The Cardinals have shot up in price aswell in the last 2 weeks over 12quid each on Aquarist Classifieds now.

Still Can't believe that LFS' get away with charging over 3quid for 1 cherry shrimp

NOt done much over the last few days.
Simply been adding more floating Azolla and Duckweed (for any Fry) and been feeding tiny white worms that are all over one of the fry tanks to the female.

Not all that happy with the Palms added, not a very good plant this time. The Tiger lotus is doing very well and is already sending out leaves after only a few days. Good to know they will grow in unheated.

Also Off Topic Slightly, Discovered yesterday that the Bottom half of the Danio and Guppy Barrel is Covered in a VVVVVVThick layer of Mixed Mosses, (don't remember adding any to it). 1 thinh is though, on the sides of the Barrell there is a Moss Growing, that is Very Thick and is growing in Trident Shapes, IS that Xmas Moss, as I looks Very Thick and Bushy. Will take some out and get pix later after coming back from sunday afternoon Shopping in Town.

Ok To start with I teased it apart with tweezers to place onto the Sheet (making sure that the sheet was Waterlogged to keep the Fontanus Moist)

Once I was happy with the placement of the fontanus. I began the slow task of sewing it onto the sheet using green cotton therad(best match i could find in the wife's sewing box).

Spotted more Shrimplets today and they are soooooooooooooo Cute and tiny duplicates of the adults.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Xmas Moss is growing, but very stringy and straight up. The Shrimp love it but might change it so back to bare wood.

I wonder if Pelia will work in here, as I Liked that last time I had some.


Also, going to see if Dad will let me use some of his ancient Rollieflex Folding Cameras to take some shots of this and other things. Have only used it once years ago, so will need to familiarise myself with it again.

Taken Down Now, and everything has been moved over to the bowfront.
It is not PhotoWorthy as it is an Anti-scape. Just chuecked everything in and Added the Moss Covered Twig Branch from the PFK Cube.
Will Be Picking up more fish at the weekend, a few local breeders emptying tanks. And I am Happy to oblige taking the fish off them when free.
