Trying to Spawn Bolivian Rams

I split these up so I only have about a dozen in each ten gallon tank.  Trying to get them to grow a little faster.  Most still only 3/4"  biggest maybe 1"

Been a while since the last pics.   Very slow growing.  Power outage while on vacation killed off most of them.






They got really skinny while I was away- just been living off the natural critters growing in the dirty tank

Time for some live brine shrimp

I agree - keep those pics coming.  You have interesting "things" in your tanks and you are capturing them with outstanding shots.  Thanks again for sharing.

Amazing shots, and I'll gladly take your camera off your hands when you purchase the "real" one your after. Snail shot is crazy!!
Excellent post too !!  It's given me a desire to try them again. Did you adjust water conditions at all or using just tap?

Cheers,

I agree with Mike2929, scud, and I've seen them in Lake Michigan.

i think that is a scud AKA gammarus.  Great food for bigger fish.  Harmless, I believe.

Thanks.

I'm saving up for a *real* camera, a macro lens, and some remote flash units.

No new fry pics yet,  they look pretty much the same as before.


Got a ton of these critters swimming around now,  breeding in my filter cartridges.  Harmless?

You have some serious camera skills.  That snail shot is a magazine cover.

These are slow growing.  Most are now about the size of newborn guppies. 
Switched to frozen BBS and powdered flake no problems. 
Water changes every third day.

Not sure how/if I can get them to grow faster.

50+ photos and these are the only ones close to being in focus.  If they didn't swim around so much maybe they'd grow faster.





Snails I can shoot no problem.


Not sure where the Hydra came from. Doesn't seem to be killing any fry so I'll just leave it alone for now.
