The tank looks amazing, Hamish!

Why not just transfer well established filter media from one of your other tanks and go ahead and stock this one? Instant cycle!

(You must add the fish as soon as you transfer the media, though! You don't have to add them all at once, but you could!)

I checked on my pair of Blue Rams last night and noticed the female was ready to spawn. So I did a 30% water change with 100% RO water ( i usually do 50%ro 50% tap) and BAM within 12 hours I have eggs again :lol: . No photos this time though I dont want to bother/stress them or they'll eat all the eggs again. I placed a blanket over the tank just to be safe lol and also added 2 ml of methylene blue; is this the correct dosage for a 15g tank?
Anyways fingers crossed :thumb:

Great tanks, Hamish!

I am very impressed with what you have done in a few months.

What are the plants in the first picture--the 15 gal. Ram tank?

Hey Peterl
Sorry mate I cant really help you there. The 15g was my first tank and being inexperienced I pretty much just picked out a couple of plants from a store without asking what they are. Prehaps someone here can help?

Without a closer pic to narrow it down, I'd have to guess the plants are either some sort of cambodia, ambulia, or milfoil species.
