    Really great thread :)

    Im hoping to get some Mexican Mollies on Sunday so will try and get some pics up here.

    Fish48 do you have a full list of what you have in the fish house? Looks to be some interesting species there!

    I got 6 male guppies, 6 neon tetras, a rainbow shark, 2 rabbit snails & a baby shrimp. Everyone spends ages looking for the shrimp which is quite funny. I'm hoping to get some more fish in a few week but I do look guppies and going to get some endlers xx[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    got all my live foods well established ,
    some of my cultures
    I breed earth worms and grindal worm in the same container two separate them I use a piece of canvas cloth I sprinkle some ready Brek on top of cloth within a few days there will be plenty of grindal worm to feed my fish the earthworms stay underneath I feed them on banana skins,
    my white worm culture is doing well I feed them with a slice of bread soaked in milk and natural yoghurt
    IMG_1330 (640x480).jpg IMG_1364 (640x480).jpg
    I scoop grindal worm with a tablespoon it's a very good food for growing on fry
