They are extremely labor intensive. Do not ever cut back on maintenance for any reason. They can be really unforgiving. So pretty though.

day 2 has passed and they still haven't eaten anything, temp is at 29°C, got 0-0-5 readings. or they are taking a long time to acclimate or they don't like my food. hope for some eating fishes tomorrow.

the key is getting close to low mineral content water, which can be done using peat
