It's been a few months now since I set this up. The tank is a Juwel Lido 200 tank with 2 x T5 tubes. Running with an Eheim External Canister Filter and 2 x double sponge filters. Injected CO2 at 90 bubbles per minute, and EI Dosing at half dosing. Lighting period 9 hours per day.

Starting to look quite nice now. The wood is 'staghorn' oak collected locally from the woods near where I live.

I've got a few hundred at the moment. Every few weeks I catch as many adults as I can and sell them to my local LFS for £1.00 each. Usually between 50 and 70 at any one time.

The hardest part is catching them. I've tried the siphon through a tube into a bucket method. But it is impossible to separate the adults from semi adults and new hatchling.
