4x for active swimmers per week either TetraPro Colour, TetraMin Junior or Tetra Rubin Granules, 2x per week freeze-dried water fleas or copepods, for the bottom dwellers a broken through food tablet (Sera viformo or Sera Wels-Chips), a "day of hunger" week
The Anetome Helena as planned eaten excellent the entrained with my plants and snails would be since then about the food tablets.
Young at the snarling Zwergguramis (Oct 2014):
From the egg-laying of Gouramis I first heard nothing. The frog bite had the surface overgrown again and the underlying water goblet taken the light, so I wanted Absammeln many of the frog bite plants and use on the occasion including a few new plants. And I regret to the nest of Gouramis with already hatched juveniles have been broken, because suddenly swam to the surface countless tiny (about 1 mm long) larvae, and the hunting instinct of the Neons was piqued. Quick I have collected about 100 Gurami larvae and set a 12l-breeding pools for them. Unfortunately, the number of juveniles shrunk dramatically in the first few days (perhaps among other things because the food supply at first could not be assured), so that for a few days only four juveniles are left, three of which do, however, a very good impression , They grow properly (have just 6mm length reached) and eat both copepods and resolved Sera viformo very ambitious. The three I have a good feeling :-) The two largest seen even from as Zwergguramis!
Growler update on 10.28.2014:
The three remaining young fish grow splendidly and should start to behave like their parents. The two larger ones are now already 1cm long, the smaller also determined already 0.8cm. They take the form of parents, also first pigments are visible. They spend most of their time protecting Cabomba caroliniana, which I have set as a retreat into the breeding tank, in search of food can be the juveniles but very good watch, when they quietly pull through pools. Every 3 days there to eat a bit of crumbled viformo lining tablet, thawed on the other days copepods. The kids eat very much and good and make a really stable, already quite robust. Hopefully things continue :-)
Again junior at the snarling Zwergguramis (11/08/2014)
When changing the water two days ago, I met again a group of tiny larvae of snarling Zwergguramis. Although I noticed about five days earlier that the striking Zwergguramis often growling, I could see no courtship or no oviposition. During the week, I had as much to do the first time around, so I was again very surprised (perhaps spawn the gouramis prefer from when is little movement in the room for a few days?). I can catch out even more about 20 larvae, although many of these have made a very poor impression. They now swim in a small Ablaichkasten in my breeding tank because the other three juveniles have become so large (about 1cm) that I do not know how safe would the new larvae with their body length 1-2mm there. Two or three of the newly hatched Zwergguramis I was able to observe during feeding (Artemia JBL fluid). Hopefully they grab it!
Update from the breeding tank (11/11/2014)
Unfortunately, only lives a new Growler larvae, and also reacts barely. The chances of survival seem to be very poor, from the first nest only three Gouramis have survived, now the second nest probably not ... But after all this is the three from the first time well, today it was the first time crumbled "brine shrimp" Tetra Delica. They swim very confidently through her pelvis and are constantly in search of food. Maybe I feed in the next few days several times a day (the dust feed naturally spread quite strong at the 12l water because the foraging falls little more tricky ...)
Reshaping of the pelvis and Growler junior # 3 (02.17.2015)
After a long absence here's a quick look back at the last three months: from November-young, who was very weak from the start, no fish has come through. The three juveniles from October offspring are, however become so great that I could put them in December to the parent animals and other fish into Knurrerbecken where they have since feel on top (only when I pull out the camera, they are shy and dressed in the plant thicket back).
To the fish [...]
