7 Months Update – (Feeding Frenzy) NO filter, NO CO2, NO Ferts 5 Gallon Nano Tank

Video Channel: Foo the Flowerhorn

This is 7 months update. The fish are called Sparkling or Pygmy gourami.

The difficult decision of letting the Amano release her larvae in the tank was made. I researched quite a bit, and I figured there’s about 50/50 chance that I could raise the amano shrimplets. But if I failed, the larvae would go to waste, and if I succeeded, I would end up with over a hundred amanos. I really need the gourami fry to grow up and eat any newborn shrimplets. The number of shrimps in this tank is ridiculous. There are so many shrimplets that don’t show up on camera.

I think I’m gonna have to do something soon. The balance of the aquarium is breaking.

The fresh spinach was boiled for about 10 minutes. That’s why it sinks.
