The Anubias varietals are from Africa as well..
How big is the tank? Looks like a 55.. You'll want at least 1 wpg of light, unless you just want to stick to Java Moss and Java Fern, and some...
Nice!! Keep it up!
Like I said, a school of danios or cories..
Gourami are too big, too slow, and their fins will get nipped..
Cories would be my choice, as that would give the tigers the middle and top to...
3 per week is a good rule of thumb..
Is the tank planted?
Lots of hiding spots would be good..
Well, red tail sharks are pretty aggressive with smaller tropical fish..
You could try it if your heart is set on one, but I wouldn't..
You'd be asking for stressed out fish..
Barbs are quite nippy, especially in small groups..
If you get more than 6 (highly recommended) they will most likely just chase each other, though..
But to be on the safe side if you wanted...
You could try adding liquid CO2, in the form of Seachem Flourish Excel..
That should help, as should micronutrients in the form of Seachem Flourish..
DO you have sunlight hitting the...
What do you have for lighting?
Is there sunlight hitting the tank at all?
Yeah, I love my 2 little guys..
I wish I hadn't been almost fully stocked when I got them..
I would have got 5-6..
Good on ya!
Feels good, doesn't it? :)
All my belts are useless now, unless I poke another hole in them.. Pants are all "work" pants..
Yeah, I've never had any in my tank, but I hear they need LOTS of iron in the substrate and CO2 to flourish..
Water temp wouldn't be a factor, as long as you're btw. 72 and 80.. Lighting should...
Yes.. A. is short for Anubias..
Very nice plant..
Whoops.. Missed that..
Yeah, I would only risk low light plants like those mentioned, preferably the rhizome type (java fern) that you can attach to raised objects in the tank to get it a little...
Swords and other stem plants need lots of iron and other nutrients in the substrate, so tabs would work.. But they also need a fair bit of light and CO2..
Wisteria and Hornwort would fare...
Just hover the vac over the sand.. That's all.. No need to poke..
Do neons, cardinals do okay with a sand bottom? Not hard on their gills? I heard catfish like sand? Does aquarium sand clog up...
It goes in spurts sometimes..
Especially if your intake and activity levels vary significantly from day to day..
When I was on my diet, I didn't loose anything for about 4-5 days, eating 1200...
Actually, I don't.. LOL
I mean, yes, it takes quite a while to tabulate everything on Fitday, day in, day out..
But as far as there being a plan.. Not so much.. :)
I just eat as healthy...
My only point was you never know how many cals you may be eating unless you start weighing it, and getting technical about it..
You have to do it right, or not at all.. Googling porkchops, etc....
This brings up an excellent point..
If you have unhealthy stuff in the house "for the kids", "for company", you WILL eat it.. :)
Believe me, I know..
Get it out of the house! LOL
Yup, when I cook meals for the family, including myself, I definitely have to guesstimate..
But it's not TOO hard, even then.. I just take all the ingredients I used, and the amounts, and divide...
No need to weigh yourself twice a day.. Pick one, and stick with it..
Myself I do it as soon as I get up, right after the morning pee (1/2 a pound lost right there! LOL).. I do it before...
I'm assuming you're weighing yourself at the same time each day?
If it's digital, it should work fine.. Mine's a Salter from 10 years ago, and I've never had a reason to doubt its accuracy..
Like I say, just do it long enough to see if that's been the problem (too many tabulated ingredients)..
Then move on to getting creative with no calorie seasonings (cinnamon, mustard, red wine...
