    Sorry, I'm not going to make it today--spring is the crazy season in my business.

    Pam, I've never had problems with bristlenoses eating anubias or any other plant. But I do feed my bristles well with sinking algae pellets and blanched zucchini.

    I have both assassin snails and breeding bristlenose plecos in several tanks with no problems. Even in the unlikely event that an assassin developed a taste for fish eggs, male bristlenoses guard their eggs very well.

    Scott's Premium will work, and is normally available at Home Depot. I strongly recommend that you prepare the soil by doing several soak and drain cycles at least. The bag of Scott's I tried had a lot of big chunks of floating wood. These were removed during soak and drain, but I lost about 40% of the soil volume. So start with more than you need.

    Michael replied to a thread Summer Tubs in Breeding
    Thanks! I don't cover the entire bottom of the tub with soil and gravel cap as you would in a Walstad aquarium. I like to be able to move the plants around as they grow, and tear the whole tub down easily if there is a problem. So I use trays and shallow pots with soil and cap, aiming for the same depth of substrate as you would have in a large aquarium. Size of the tray or pot varies with what species of plant that will be grown in them. ...
