    Smile I went to buy some neons ...

    ... and came home with three little glowlights. The neons were still in quarantine and not for sale yet. I saw the tank full of beautiful glowlights a couple of weeks ago when I went to get my bristlenose, but thought they'd all been sold by now. Lo and behold, though, there were three left, swimming a little forlornly in a tank full of small rasboras.

    They still look a little lost in my tank, but they're checking out all the hidey holes and occasionally surf in the filter current. Now I just hope they'll survive the next 72 hours.

    The LFS will call me when they get a new shipment, so I can slowly build a small school of them.

    Me's all excited.

    Yes, would be a very interesting experiment..

    Hopefully they won't have long to wait.. :)

    What are you feeding them?

    What are the water conditions in the tank? (temp, ph, etc)

    Is your tank planted?

    Until my angelfish decided I shouldnt,I had neons and glolights together in a school.I dont have neons anymore!My glolights are imune from my angels belly because they grew up together.Glo lights are not as flashy as neons but they are certainly hardier.

    Well, I only got them today, so won't be feeding them until tomorrow. There's some flake food for tropicals that came with the tank, and I bought them micro pellets. I'll try both, but if they eat the pellets, I think I'll throw the flake food out. And in a couple of days I'd like to try some frozen brine shrimp or daphnia. I'll have to see what I can get. The BN gets spirulina tablets, but so far the glowlights haven't touched his dinner.

    Temp is 25C, pH is now 7.2. It was a little higher when I first started to set up the tank, but I haven't had that again. Hopefully just a fluke with the tapwater.
    It's quite soft, but not worrysomely so. Yes, the tank is well planted, though some of them have yet to grow a bit, especially the Vals in the back. I made a sig for the content of the tank that should pop up with this post, and If I can get a decent picture, I'll upload one.

    How are you coming along with your decoration decisions?

    I love the way they look out of a shadowy corner when they catch the light just right.

    Thankfully they and the BN seem to be mutually ignoring each other. The BN is quite visible tonight though, came out way early and happily scamperes all over his favorite spots with the lights still on. As if the company gave him a confidence boost.

    I see you have diamond tetras. Those are lovely. I was very tempted, but because of the limited space thought I'd go with the smaller ones to be able to get a bigger school.

    Feed the BN some blanched veggies. Algae wafers aren't a good staple diet, too high in protein. Romaine lettuce is good, cucumber or zucchini, or a small slice of sweet potato. Sugar snap peas or green beans are also appreciated.

    I'll try some of that. It's not like he's super interested in the spirulinas, anyway. He eats about half of one over three days, much more happily munching on the bogwood and keeping the tank sparkling free of algae.

    Thankee,
    Anja
