You'll have to forgive my breathing in the video, my nose is a bit crooked from playing rugby for years so it doesn't really work 🤣

Not sure why the video won't directly upload but just click the link.
You need to use the youtube2 button when the link looks like that one Ben.
Cheers! I normally use the standard button. I guess one is for mobiles.

The youtube app creates a different link was the reason for needing it.

It's actually quite hard to see, but there is probably about 100 snails in there at the moment. Maybe more, quite impressive for a 12l tank.

Woke up early this morning so I thought I'd take the opportunity to watch the Cory tank for a while and check that all is well seeing as I never see them during the day. There's a few young fish in there as well now that I never knew of, counted 7 Weitzmani but I originally had 5. During light hours it looks like an empty tank, I definitely need a confident species to add to it. I don't want Bronzes, but how do people find Paleatus? Anyway, I took some photos whilst I was at it...

What temp are you keeping them at Ben?
Paleatus don't really like it above 22C, as with pandas, but you may find both will eat eggs.
Since I put emperors in with the gossei I've seen them more at the front of the tank. ;)

24c. I probably will try some tetras at some point as I always kept some Rosy Tetras before. MA had splash tetras last time I went but I don't think I'll be going for a little while now! Currently I like how the tank is set up, but I means I don't see anything!

Doing a bit of digging into the growth rates of my fry at the moment, one is doing really well and they other two aren't really growing as well. Any ideas welcome!
