There will be blood....

Postby SeahorseWhisperer_ » February 10th, 2008, 10:11 pm

On another thread I was advised that breeding MO requires blood, sweat and life. So, today I was jerry rigging a new pelagic fry tank and I cut my finger....I let it bleed a bit just in case some funky mycobacteria lives in my warm water.

Here is what I came up with so far. I am going to use it for seahorse fry until I get a spawn of something else. One side has an open grow out area for when the larvae metamorph into tiny fry. I tried to get the flow gentle enough to not stress the fry, but strong enough to keep the food from sinking right off.

The other side has a kreisal tank, with the heater on that side.

Any suggestions on improvements?

LMAO! I love your thread title! :lol:

You gonna start writing these things up for publication, or what? ;)

No suggestions from me. It looks like you've got good access, it's not unstable, tank setup looks fine, nice and clean. Interesting how you've "modified" the goldfish bowl inside the acrylic tank... how will the water will be shared between both vessels? It looks as though the goldfish bowl is essentially separate from the system it's inside.

Very cool! It's difficult to get the whole picture with the image you posted. Perhaps a side view?
