Hypan D Caves again

I decided to try the Hypan D caves again especially with my L129’s as I feel the camo ones I currently have may be too small for them to spawn in. I ordered ten of the small size and two of the mini ones. Fingers crossed this may help as I’ve a female struggling to get in with the male. These are available from Orwell Aquatics (Link to their website in my links section), some pics.

Filter Media Update

Decided to remove the standard Eheim bio mech in the bottom two trays of my Eheim Pro 4+ 600 external filter and I am now using Biohome ultimate in the very bottom tray with some Biohome Ultimate Mini in with it, and then a tray of the Biohome Mini Ultimate with some Fluval Bio ceramic rings followed by the standard Eheim top media’s and sponges, I added in some filter media balls and some Fluval Cycle to help get the new media established. I also added in some of the Bio home Ultimate Mini to my L129’s Fluval 406 Filter, here are some pics.

Betta Pair

Was up at Sun Aquatics in Stirling today to get some Fluval Cycle and came back with this amazing pair of betta’s. A great shop and well worth going to if you haven’t done so already, the owners are very helpful and have been in the business a long time and really know their stuff. Here is some pics.


6x More L129’s Arrived

Today I received 6 various size and sex L129’s. These arrived safe as always from Orwell Aquatics (Link to their website in my links section) One of which is a large female so fingers crossed these will all stir up my current group a little. This now takes my group to 13 fish the same as my L046 Zebras 🙂 For those of you looking to order fish online like I do please consider using Orwell Aquatics as the quality of fish and their customer service is superb and second to none. Here are some pics.

Corydoras Metae Spawn

About to goto bed and I noticed my small group of Corydoras Metae were dropping eggs all around the L129’s tank. Not sure if any will survive but was nice to see. Here a crap pic of a few eggs I took with my iPhone that they laid up the top corner of the tank, and another on the back glass, and others in other places around the tank.

Camo Hypan Caves

Got some more camo handmade hypan size caves in from Germany with some top plates and wave plates. My fish seem to love them. Have sold many via Facebook so may start selling them on here too. Here is some pics.
