    Water blommetjie (Aponogeton Distachyos) is not just a nice tank/pond plant, but you can harvest the flowers and serve them up with a lamb stew. :thumbup:

    Nice! I tend to prefer the regular WCM over the Goldens personally- the stripe detailing along their side appeals. Rachel Meadows’ examples truly are beautiful - hope yours continue to thrive and colour up.

    If you have the patience to wait for my fry to grow out I’ll give you as many as you want.
    Or if you have fry grow out facilities I’ll give you fry.

    Exams + fry = a hard time with BBS and raising. I'll wait for sure, wondering how my betta would react to them. Otherwise to the scape!

    Good luck with the exams, and agree not a good time to be raising fry. Let’s wait till January, will be plenty I’m sure.

    What temp is your betta at though, cause I reckon minnows would do 24 max. They grow to the size of about a large neon, not nippy.

    Buckled and started feeding the minnow fry in the pond. I haven’t seen many newly hatched fry for a week or two, but still plenty of slightly older fry. Going on the hypothesis that the system has run out of food supplies for the very young.

    Possible, yeah. Older fry could probably take out the newer batches so more and more mouths to feed! If you can judge it by eye then that's ideal - feed a little and see how it all goes.

    Moving some more fry to the grow out tank. Bellies are full and red from the crushed up Hikari Vibrabites they just had :)
