  1. Air pumps don't pump O2 into the water, they increase the surface area of the tank which allows for a better exchange of gasses. Water has a greater affinity for O2 than CO2 so airation drives off the CO2 and raises the pH.
  2. It is rare. Albino is a gene for lack of melanin and leucistic is a gene for lack of colours such as melanin. green, blue etc. My leucistic is a yellow colour with red eyes and yours looks almost translucent like it only has melanin. You can get black birds with white patches because of partial leucistic.
  3. It is not albino as it would have red eyes if it was. I have a leucistic frog which is yellow with red eyes. It is a light colour but has a patch of green on the side. It is possible to have a partial leucistic.
  4. The nearest thing to your dream that I have kept is baby black flounder that I caught while removing lumbriculus (black worms) from a a source which has now gone away. I suspect now that this was probably not legal either.
  5. Well done. A great looking tank
  6. There is a special tape used for CO2 jointing, not plumbing tape. I suspect you have run out of CO2.
  7. I do not have it but Redwood aquatics may do. It is not suitable for submersed growth and only for terrariums. H. callitrichoides "Cuba" is not legally in NZ.
  8. Some plants sold will nearly always die off but others can be saved. To increase the chances of survival find out when the new plants arrive in the shop and buy them before they have been in water too long. The structure of the leaves is different between emersed and submersed. Put the stems in to water and give them strong light until they grow roots. Most people want plants that are red so buy Echinodorus red special or similar plants that are naturally red and are aquatic. They will grow red with the right fertilizers and good light.
  9. Many plants sold as aquatic plants are actually not.
  10. I cannot see anything wrong with her----she may have just dropped babies.
  11. Not Ludwigia and not an aquatic plant. Has been gown emersed and is in flower. I would suggest it is a pot plant but don't know what it is. Unlikely to live long in an aquarium I would suspect.
