    I went in to feed them at 2:30 this afternoon and she was laying. I have a 29 gallon, a cultured sponge filter, and 4 healthy mature tanks that can donate some biological filter. and a plastic shoe box, etc.and I can start the brine hatch as soon as grandchildren go home.

    I hope the timing goes right. Lots of times a large water change with cooler water will get them to spawn if they are close. -john

    Nicholsons_Discus replied to a thread Hello in Introductions
    Welcome. I have been a discus breeder for 20+ years. Discus are great but can be tricky. The biggest issue is water quality. Most will not do the water changes needed. Also most insist on having gravel and plants both of which really hurt you water quality ( I know planted tank people will tell you different but facts are facts ...LOL ). If you want big nice discus like you see pictures of it requires healthy fish to start with, lots of...

    I have a few. I never had much luck with the silicone and slate. I have been known to put a piece of glass over the old slate bottom and silicone that inplace though and it works well. -john

    That's the reason it's been in my closet a couple years I have a 10g now but I want to restore this one enough to hold water. I didn't even think of YouTube. I did try the hot water trick... Didn't work unfortunately.

    I don't know John's handle on here, you may have to just check periodically? His fish were dying in the sun, I picked some up and found one to be a geo then found him

    A friend used to collect and repair these tanks. She disassembled them, removed all the old sealant, and reassembled with black silicone. I don't know what brand she used.

    Why go through the trouble, 10G tanks are cheap if you buy them new! Are you trying to restore this tank due to its uniqueness? If not i would not waste my time. A good idea is to display succulents in them :)

    When I strip each female I count every egg and or free swimmers and keep an excel spreadsheet with a tank ID, species name, quantity and whether it is a fry or if they are adults. No of course some eggs may not be fertile so I count the fry once they are free swimmers and update my spreadsheet accordingly. It's the accountant/auditor in me.

    John, when I said mine eat the babies, not the eggs, I meant my adult angels. they ate every hatched 2 day old baby angel in that tank in 1 night. They are good parents for a while. Alice

    My metal bound slate bottom 29 no longer had visible tar when I got it, it had visible silicone on the interior, I think, which I scraped off with a razor blade and did a new bead of clear aquarium silicone at all interior joints. NOW it worked for a year or 2, then I moved the tank and somehow got a minor leak again, so I did this a couple of times a couple of years apart, and it had a small leak problem before I put it in dry dock in the shed...

    DO NOT REMOVE THE TAR!!!! Fill the tank up with the hottest water you have to heat the tar up to make it tacky and it will self seal itself. Chunks of the tar on my slate bottom were missing so I had to reseal using silicone. The silicone failed immediately to adhere to the slate bottom. I had to custom order a piece of glass to fit over the slate and silicone it that way.

    The RTV silicone is extremely sticky, it might be your best bet. It also comes in black and clear.

    We're getting ready to move. As a result, I need to find new homes for my last two fish so I can break down their tank and put it in storage. Two Iridescent shark catfish. (2 for $3) I estimate them to be about 5" long, but they are slender so they don't really look that big in the tank. They are pretty chill and just like to cruise around the tank. I currently have them in my 50 gal but I need to break that down. (I tried to...
