    They have had a rough start if some of you will remember. Their original tank was inadvertantly drained almost empty by yours truely. :eek:

    The took up residency with my O. Cocama. Now the fun and hard part begins. Setting up two tanks. One small holding tank for mom to be moved to in a couple of weeks. The second and most important one is the brackish tank. This will be the critical one.

    One things for sure, I won't be suffering from the lack of zoes when they are ready. Here' the latest find:

    [​IMG]

    This is now three berried females. It's interesting as the first one looks to only have half the amount of eggs as the last two.

    Lets get some parms:
    pH: 7.4
    Temp: 77
    NO3: 10
    GH: 6
    KH: 4
    TDS: 139

    Picked up a small repti habitat. Looked like it was a gallon in size but turned out to be a bit short. Would really like to have 1 gallon rearing tanks for the testing. Guess I'll have to use a couple of the repti ones. Will begin getting that set up shortly.

    the largest dip and pours are about a gallon and could be hung in your display tank (assuming its big enough) to cut down on the need for heaters and to make transfer closer/easier.

    May have to look into those. I doubt PetSmart carries them. Can't hang em in the breeding tank though due to the salinity.

    Microalgae and other equipment now on order. Figured I'd have a little more time to work with though. ;)

    Will start playing with mixing the salt water to get the salinities I want to start working with.
