  1. http://www.publictrust.co.nz/lost-a-loved-one/FAQ#faq04
  2. but does it eat noodles?
  3. Probably but they don't describe it very well so maybe best to spend your money on something else, unless you can go to a shop and read the back of the container. This would also be good for when they are very small http://www.trademe.co.nz/pets-animals/f ... 731322.htm This stuff you've already looked at, will be ok for killie fry http://www.trademe.co.nz/pets-animals/f ... 901478.htm This also looks good - 3 different sizes from super weeny to weeny... I'd probably get this stuff and then see how big the biggest powder was. http://www.trademe.co.nz/pets-animals/f ... 074778.htm
  4. yes, as long as it's the tiny tiny stuff - like a powder type size they'll have a go at eating anything but the smaller it is the more they will fit in their mouths and therefore get it into their tummies they won't really eat until they are swimming though - you don't need to feed them as soon as they hatch - they look like little dead fish for up to a week and then one day you look in the tank and they are swimming up the right way - that's what Alan means by free swimming.
  5. Dry micro food such as NLS fry food or golden pearls is fine for fry. Also dry brine shrimp eggs, but you'll need to soak them first and put in the water so they sink. They will eat microworms happily but I think the live and dried food has more protein which is also required for growing fish. Just put a little microworms in so they have enough to eat, or they could pollute the water. I suspect killed a batch of killie fry by overfeeding with microworms.
  6. both of those types of mini fish would be ok
  7. when my crypts have melted they usually come back smaller and take a long time to regain their former glory, hence my opinion that it's too risky with crypts, easier to cut off the leaves that have algae.
  8. in the jungle, I thought that was obvious :cofn:
  9. Crypts won't survive dipping in anything
  10. I have gnashed my teeth many times over melted crypts, but there is nothing to be done about it..... they just do what they want to do. :fshi:
  11. Last month I put 2 large oak twigs in my 54L tank, and within 2 weeks the water was brown with tannin, and all the crypts melted. They are only just starting to pop up again. I think it's because the wood is softening the water and probably altering the nitrates.
  12. Do you guys mean to say that there are traffic jams outside of Auckland? I thought that only happened when the farmers take their sheep out of one paddock and down the road to the next one. :bggrn:
  13. see if you can add some extra circulation/current that doesn't upset the guppies too much
