    Hi Dustin,

    I sure did get your card and thanks. I am up to my neck in the move right now with some very serious decisions to be made over the next 3 days. Just life's little way of making it all a maddening hell just as you thought it was all set. The fishroom is down and almost sold off. Once i am moved I plan on getting very modern with one rack, water changing devices and the works. Time to move ahead. I hope the fish are all producing. Are the nezzies still little fry machines? Any calabarica fry? Have the mollies sexed out?

    Hi Bobby!

    Wow Keep us updated on the modern fish racks! I am excited for you! Many "old timers" stick to "old methods" Its FANTASTIC to see your restarting with the most modern!!!

    The Nezza and monties are both fry machines! The Mollies have sexed out and are HUGE!

    No fry though still from the killies, I have them in 56 tds soft water.. 15 gallon tank chuck full of najas and misc plants.. I have been feeding chopped black worms and grindal worms. Anything I can do to trigger a spawn? Still have all 3 pair you sennt..

    Thanks!!

    Dustin

    I'm betting some fry are going to appear when you least expect it.

    What kind of food are they getting?
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula &#39;Red Dragon&#39;(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY N!!!!!!!

    I have been feeding chopped black worms and grindal worms.. I am under the impression they will only accept live foods?!

    Hi,

    Still no fry? Is there alot of bottom material -- wood, plants, etc? They like that. Do you do regular water changes? How's the pH? How big is the tank? I'd try fasting them and vary the food -- bbs and daphnia say. Alot of people have problems with them. Keep them a bit isolated from traffic.

    re-read your post. Add ALOT of java moss or nylon mops to the bottom to give them cover. it sounds like they don't really have good breeding sites. Lots of ground cover and thick. Keep them cool -- below 75F.
