  • 10G Multi-Purpose

    Since my 10g, formerly known as my QT tank has been taking on new additions lately I decided to make a thread for it.

    Lighting is a marineland 22 led hood, Filtration varies: Sponge filter and/or Aqueon 20 HOB, Kept at 78 currently. Normally barebottom but I added a light layer of sand for incoming cories.

    Right now the tank holds a small school of juvenile Gold Barbs bound for Dena in the near future. Also, a large hang on specimen container houses about 20? Sterbai cory fry in varying stages of development. I have the outlet of my sponge filter turned to constantly refill/overflow the specimen container from the main tank. So for no babies have come anywhere near getting sucked out but we'll see how that goes, I may dremel some slots in it. Any way, here's pictures:

            That is a really neat little setup.

              Thanks Lori. I was doing the net breeder thing in the 55g but there is just too much "stuff" living in there. The mesh kept getting fouled with algae and stuff, not to mention it killed a couple free swimmers that got stuck between the framework and the net. I love this because the container is so transparent, the pictures of the wrigglers with their yolks almost gone were ones I didn't even know were in the net breeder because it was so hard to see! Also the constant movement keeps the container pretty clean.

                  Yet again..even though it's just a 10g it always looks so sleek and clean. Curse you and your sleek and cleanness Matt, curse you!

                    It amazes me, that most fish fry look the same yet turn out so differently

                      Thanks Rae Sorry! I like things squared away!

                      Me too Anthony! When I scrutinize them reeeaaally closely I think I can see the start of little cory faces on the generic fry body, neat.

                            I wish my cories would breed but they never have in captivity. Can't wait to watch these grow and develop

                              Well, it won't be this batch unfortunately. I switched to a smaller airpump because I was afraid of them getting pushed out. I don't think it moved enough water, there is 1 survivor. No worries, they'll make more.
