Hi All

Hope it's ok to post these here. As title pictures of the old scape, unfortunatley the tank doesnt look like this any more.... main reason was due to a hydor inline heater failing while I was away in Germany... but anyway enough of that and on to the pictures :)

The 25l breeding tank that everyone told me I was crazy to try...

I had 5 successful spawns from this pair before I retired them back to a community tank, I love Rams and will have to do it all again at some point :D

Thanks for looking

I managed to find a very interesting paper online all about water parameters and how they effect the development of Ram eggs, it was really good but had one downside... it was in German... The gist of it was very soft, very low pH water. Like 4.5 or so. I was pretty skeptical but couldnt get any clutches of eggs to hatch untill I dropped the ph down to about 4.7 and from then on bingo! wrigglers everywhere!
