1 x Siamese flying fox

2 x Bristlenose (1 x albino and 1 x peppermint)

7 x Rosy barbs


They eat a range of everything. Pisces tropical flakes, Tetra freezer dried bloodworms, sinking algae waffles and frozen bloodworms. I also add a variety of fruits and veggies 2 times a week eg. Rockmelon, cucumber and zucchini.The goldfish and the algae eaters go crazy for it.


PLANTS AND SUBSTRATE


There is a range of Val, Elodea, ambulia (sticks now) & Hornwort (also sticks from the goldfish eating the leaves) that bed in a flooring of Riversand. Ihave Calgrit mixed in the riversand to help with the PH level and also calcium. No fertiliser is used.


PARAMETERS


PH: sits around 7.0 - 7.5

Ammonia. 0.0

Nitrate: 20-40ppm

Nitrite: 0.0

GH: 180ppm

KH: 40ppm


I do a water change every 1-2 weeks and condition with Seachem prime every water change or when needed. Cleaning is done every few days via net and a non scratch sponge. I also run my fingers through the substrate to help filter the debris. I also test the water with an API test kit.
