Not too sure whats going on in the 2 gallon critter keeper due to the fact that the fry are bellysliders. They must be finding lots of microrganisms to eat. I'll stir in a tiny amount of microworms just in case.
Also, how many adult nothos(assuming they are not something like orthonotus) would one house in a ten gallon tank comfortably?
I actually used some peat tea with this hatch as I thought that it wouldn't hurt.
Great news on all the things hapening right now! Spring is coming and I hope to perhaps try some monty fry or whatever fry I have laying around by that time in the small pond outside. Do you think Nothos would like being outdoors in tubs when in July when the water temp would constantly be above 70 or so? The Mambova you've raised are the "intermediate" form right? Dunno if perhaps anyone is having problems with extra females ever? Looks like you will be able to get the calabrica spread around [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]. My monties have been doing very well-I'll have to get you some update photos.
Hope that the NYC trip goes well. I noticed in the AKA videos section a video by Lacorte titled"My 60 years in the hobby". By the title it sounds like it would be very informative.
Would you possibly be able to keep a lookout on a few things I may be interested in?
Hope to hear back from you soon!
