    Had a heater fail last night in my F-1 Viejita tank, temp was almost 100, male/female breeders dead, 12 fry dead. I just hope some of the fry I pulled will give me some females, I have some males from another batch but no females. It's amazing how just the littlest thing can become a game...

    Blood worms [midge fly larva]

    I read a lot of posts saying bloodworms are not good for apistos and most of it seems to be with commercially bought bloodworms, I raise and cultivate bloodworm but mine are in clean clear water [water fountain, birdbath]. Do the same cautions apply to bloodworms raised in a more sanitary condition?

    Tank size

    Hopefully next week I should be getting my pair of cacs. in, I have 1 female already. After QT will a 30 tall be enough room for one male and two females to breed in or would it be best to keep the females separate and just use the male between the two tanks?
