What's your favorite danio

130x60x60

  • Hi,
    you know my Asian basin and I introduced you to my mini sharks aka Epalzeorhynchos:
    Epalzeorhynchos frenatus

    Still something current.
    It's already a bit weed to me. After the treatments against Trichodina and milling head worms, everything has to settle in again and I give the pool its time (that's what everyone who is too lazy to work probably says ...).

    I was at Panta Rhei on Saturday and had made up my mind not to take anything with me. As well as - my pools are full and I long for a large South American pool, but that will only work in a new mud.
    No sooner said than done - of course it didn't stop there: There were some small fish and I bought an empty tank - for the first time
    Here are the uncommon suspects. I hadn't noticed them before. On site they showed enormous swarm behavior and were quite jumpy. That suited me well. Next door were other mini marblings who were much more relaxed Danio tinwini.
    If then, however, another test with a mini schooling fish (Brachy?) Danio nigrofasciatus.
    Currently they are probably around 2.5-3cm and should be just under an inch more.
    Fits!

  • Thanks for the kind words.
    The plants are actually not art.
    Incidentally, I think the Asian basin by Panta Rhei and the paludarium are awesome. The other basins can't keep up - my opinion.
    That should be about 160x120x60. With over 600W T5 over it. I am very economical with my ~ 160W

    Here again the fish in the top. Really cool behavior - if you lose that shyness over time?

  • Hello Phil,

    I also really like your Asian jungle.
    The way I see it, it's mostly plants that don't need that much light, right?
    160 watts sounds enormous, but that's really not much.
    Before I set up my current aquarium as it is now, I also had a lot of plants in it. And there was also 550 watts of lighting. If the damned electricity wasn't so expensive, then I would very likely still have a beautifully planted aquarium today.

    Your new fish are really lively little animals. I like to watch something like that, but I don't want to have it myself. The older I get, the more I like the peace and quiet in the aquarium. But maybe that will change again when the second half of life begins.
    Greetings from the pot, Dieter
  • Hi Dieter,
    that's enough to no longer speak of atmospheric lighting. But 2x 54 watts were not enough for mediocre plants. In the end, a lot of things grow just as well without opening guns. Every 14 days there is 50% fresh water and usually some complete fertilizer. CO2 only through the respiratory chain.
    I parted with some pretty stem plants because I didn't feel like repositioning them every 10 days and destroying the structure.
    Dieter, let's emigrate to Austria, what do you think?

  • Hello Phil,

    the pool looks really good and so do the fish. The nigrofasciatus are my favorite danio, with whom I've been toying for a long time ...
    The threadfish are pretty worn out from the treatment, aren't they?

  • Yes,
    I had hoped that they would recognize that and advise me what
    Are quite dark, still slightly protruding scales with mucus on them, but definitely not ascites.
    Both eat and are just a little more lethargic.

  • Hello,
    the mosaics are much better. I suppose it was actually the salt and will see again how it affects the hardness. But it is currently discontinued.

    Why I actually post: I am cleaning my pool and doing larger transplantations, something meager scurries and catches my eye with a bright yellow, shiny side stripe.
    Reminds me of residual water pools on the Mediterranean as a little boy. We always nets there and there were such thin mini fish around





    I take a closer look and see whole SCHOOLS of YOUNG FISH from the Danios ... I'm so stunned ...
    It was clear that I wanted to follow suit, hence the 88l pool and plans, but they also seem to grow in a relaxed manner in the holding pool. Good fry of all sizes, between 1.5 and 8mm
    Somebody interested?

  • Hey phil

    Congratulations on this success!
    How nice it is to see so many young fish scurrying around.

    I also think these danios are really great, but they would be food for me.
    As long as I still have Mesonauta in the aquarium, small fish have absolutely no chance of survival.
    Greetings from the pot, Dieter
  • Hey phil

    You are really competing with the "Green Hell Nürburgring"!
    But I like the green diversity in your aquarium much better.
    On the ring there are only fir trees and broken metal in between.
    But the sound is better there.

  • Sodele,
    now I have really schools of young fish ... looks great, but it's a bit full.
    I was also able to pick up two clown loaches between 10-12cm. I got them brought to the door, cost nothing ... great!
    The two are a bit reserved but gnawing enough that I see them every now and then. Now they're cuddling with each other ... the movement of the pupils when they look at the observer; the behavior is already great. I think in the medium term there will be a living room jungle for Asians, which should also be a bit bigger. Maybe 160x100x60? That could also be suitable for clown loaches later. PR had a great template in a similar dimension

  • Hey phil

    that's a great idea with a large Asian basin.
    I once saw a really big one at a friend's house, only filled with loaches and danios. That looked really awesome!
    Greetings from the pot, Dieter
  • Moijen Phil,

    great idea that would be chic.
    Then you kindly use gobies, you can't regret that

  • Hi Philly,

    have you already found a new apartment or house?

    Are the Fadis still alive?
