ADDING 100 SILVERTIP TETRAS TO THE 230 GALLON AQUARIUM SCHOOLING FISH

August 31, 2019 100 By Ronny Jaskolski


All right today We’re going to add a hundred silver tip tetras to the living room tank currently there’s about 10 12 15 in there somewhere in there, a pair of albino cribs and like one Roseline shark and a handful of a mono shrimp and like 12 ish Flagtail porthole cats so, really trying to liven this tank up and today is that day These are small guys compared to what was in there, but I’ve really falling in love with adult Silvertip tetras; that real bright orange on the males and then a lighter, like, lemony orange on the Female so we’re gonna add 100. That’s what they look like kind of in, in the bucket They don’t look like much but they will grow up and maybe we got to add more because it’s a 230 gallon tank so maybe a hundred and Twenty ish is not enough. We’ll see though. I don’t want to go too too crazy So we’ll start pouring these in All right Definitely looks like a lot of them, but they’re really small now like they look pretty darn Small we’ve got algae in the tank but That’s coming right along and then all the new growth – I started dosing with the easy green and you can kind of see from here The adults, I think, deficiencies micronutrient deficiencies and then as The chain, kind of, the easy green hit when I started dosing after about a month of testing Then it went straight into like, yeah, they just look really good, so I want to get co2 on this tank I’ve got it installed if we come over here a little bit I’ve actually got it already in the cabinet and everything, it just is out so I got a get refilled running the fx4, Got timers got the lights doing all that thing in there. You know I got two empty bottles of easy green I brought home a lot of easy green to make that happen, and then yeah So, ooh – my main goal is, what I want them to do is When my nieces, nephews, that type of thing, come over and they put their hands on the tank, I want the the fish to come follow the hand, but this schooling action is already great. A lot of spider wood up in here What this is, people asked last time what this was, it is a crypt, or not crypt, my bad, a Crinum Calamistratum and so that’s what this big plant is. It’s got a couple little baby shoots coming off but that’s what this is and so yeah, hopefully we’ll get these guys just schooling nice back and forth. I’ve got here my Christmas present from Jimmy which was a Custom hand-blown Mbu puffer which is super duper cool It’s engraved and everything like that so, I keep it right here on top of the tank because, I don’t know, wicked cool and I don’t want to get broken so stays right there and Yeah, I’m excited to see these guys color up Hopefully in a little bit after we’re done here these guys will come up a little bit and Jimmy will get better footage for you Guys so that right now what you’re watching is even more colored up than when I get to see ’cause in a few days that type of thing they’ll probably look even better, but Yeah, so it’s really big difference though, between those big adults and the small guys, and this is what you see at the store Normally, you’re gonna see these little ones at the store and you go, “Yeah, I don’t know those aren’t that cool, but the adults that you can see mix in that group I think are just wicked cool And I fell in love with them when we put them here. my wife actually picked them out originally And those are the fish that I fell in love with so I’m redoing that tank and we’re gonna make it with a lot of this and I already love the schooling action, so Enjoy guys. Hopefully. We’ll have a little montage here, and you guys can relax and watch fish swim around
