I'm thinking 250x150x150, what ever that equates to. Roughly 5600 litres???
Sad news Lee, I'd definitely put money on bloodworms causing the problems if they were eaten by the Chocs.
You get a lot of similar posts on dwarf cichlid forums, where people feed frozen blood worms to Apistogramma etc. and then have deaths. If I fed frozen blood-worms I'd only feed ones that were red.I'd definitely put money on bloodworms causing the problems if they were eaten by the Chocs
Hi all, You get a lot of similar posts on dwarf cichlid forums, where people feed frozen blood worms to Apistogramma etc. and then have deaths. If I fed frozen blood-worms I'd only feed ones that were red.
I think live blood-worms are fine if you culture them your-self, but I'd be a bit wary of bought live ones, because they may have been collected from sewage farms etc.
Culturing is really simple, you need a bucket of rain-water, a good handful of leaves and a cork. You leave it outside in a shady spot and the Chironomid midges find it and lay their eggs. I usually put some wood in as well (you can soak small bits of "bog wood") and the blood-worms congregate on these wooden bits at night.
Thanks Flint!! I culture all of my own food, i was slack with hatching some fresh artimia and thought i would get some bloodworm for a change. Never again, i'm not sure if that was the cause, but it's the only thing that has been done differently since i started the tank up. I'm still gutted about it now
How are your Paro's getting on?
There is a bit more detail here: <http://www.plecoplanet.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2936>.Thanks for the info, i may give a bloodworm culture a ago.
Very important, but it is just for for the mosquito to perch on when she lays her eggs. I think that in most some Chironomids the female can actually sit on the surface film when egg laying, but they usually perch on something solid by the waters edge.Cork?

They're growing nicely thanks Lee. Still waiting for my males to mature fully though. Still not sure which type they are, but probably nagyi 'kuantan'
