    Released some live mosquito larvae, oh boy it’s chaos and mayhem, what a feeding frenzy :lol: The larvae ‘s instinct is to go hide at the bottom, which is exactly where the cory babies like them. The minute they swim up, the minnow juvies get them.

    Won’t have to feed this tank for days :thumbup:

    Gave some to the 180L too but they didn’t last 2 seconds.

    Largely thanks to advice from forum members 14 of the original 27 cory babies made it. They’re growing up fast, as are the minnow juvies. This tank just feasted on frozen daphnia :)

    Also, the tank reset was a wonderful thing! Nitrates stay low now (around 10). Haven’t had to do another syphon :thumbup:

    Uhm...think I might be heading towards pea soup in the tank. First time I’ve had it, the other tanks are much more heavily planted. Think as a first line of defense I’ll do a big wc and up the planting?
