    You're welcome to take it. It really doesn't do much except lie on the bottom for days at a time in the same place and eat tetras. Cool fish, but not in my tetra tank anymore... Send me a PM with your number and when I see it again I'll net it and you can collect in Randburg. For Mahala.

    Definitely cory eggs, @Pierré Schoonraad send me some 2 months ago and I hatched them. My cories are now 2 months old and eating really well, growing bigger everyday.

    Considering I started from this:

    One day old

    Fast forward two months later:

    Right, I've moved some of the eggs to my smaller tank where there is nothing predatory so hopefully something will come of that. Anybody want a really big Siamese Algae Eater (assuming I can catch it?) free of charge for collection in Randburg. It's just getting too big for the tetra tank and zooming about is freaking out all the small fish.

    One of the "bonuses" of having had surgery that keeps you housebound is that you get to do fishtank maintenance... been a while since it looked this decent.
