  7. Default Pepper & Fantail

    0 Not allowed!
    Pepper is a Blue Shubunkin... Has no orange on him at all. Can also be called a calico (black, white, blue).

    The newest member (about a month in residence) is a calico fantail (blue, black, white, hint of orange). Hasn't been named or sexed yet. Full of personality. Last photo is clickable.

    The White Cloud Mountain Minnows (clickable shots):

    Unknown flowering bulbs. I think it's a val. of some sort, but not sure (clickable shots):

    That's all for photos for now... Sorry to have strung them all out like this, but it was the only way to deal with the 4 photo limit in one post. Thanks for looking!

    Thank you kindly!! And to answer your ferts. question: Flourish, Flourish Excel, Leaf Zone, Flourish Trace, roots tabs for the Echinodorus species. NO CO2 dosing at all -- not safe for Goldies who require a lot more O2 than most fish. Did attempt CO2 when I first started keeping Goldies with live plants many years ago, but found that even a DYI system with barely a bubble a minute was causing distress to the Goldfish. They have no issues with F. Excel though and the plants are obviously healthy =)
