Caught my Calvus fry yawning. Calvus are a very cool fish (I like their fins). Can't wait till they mature (some day)...
Thanks for the kudos guys. I have an Olympus SP-350 (8 mega pixel) advanced compact digital camera.stslimited84 said:nice pics, what kind of camera do you use?
Thanks for the kudos guys.cadets54 said:Great pics Razzo,
After checking out your pics I noticed that you have black gravel in the tank which makes the color in the cichlids show up much brighter. I have been using crushed coral in my tank for the past three years to keep the correct PH but I would rather go to the DARK side if you know what I mean, :lol:
My question to you is how do you keep the correct parameters with that type of gravel. I would appreciate it if you could fill me in.
I don't like to buffer if I don't have to. Consistancy is most important. 7.5 is still in the range that I am comfortable with tangs. If it were me and my pH stayed consistantly at 7.5 without help, I would not buffer. IMHO, 7.5 is fine.cadets54 said:The last time I checked my PH was around a year ago and I think it is 7.5 but I will check it again today to make sure. With the crushed coral in the tank I only use two tablespoons of buffer to bring the PH back up to 8.5 in the 100 gallon tank, after I do the water change which is approx 60 gallons.
By the way where did you get the bolders/rocks from? I haven't seen any like that around my area.
Again thanks for the help I really apprecicte it!
