Out door tub.

Unread postby KarthikC » Tue Jul 22, 2014 9:43 pm

Hey guys,

I've got a out door tub for my single betta who's guarding the eggs (female removed after eggs were laid). Today I saw a toad sitting on the rim of the tub. Just wanted to check if there's any trick to keep these things at bay. I don't want my betta fry (or worse the betta) to be eaten.

The tub is about 1.5 ft dia and 1 feet deep, with good amount of plants. I'll try and post a pic tomorrow.

Cheers,

Karthik

Cover the tank with plastic net.

I tried that, but I think I need to secure it a little better. The toad got through it last night and slurped all the eggs :(

So, my planted tank lights went bust. Had to shift all the plants to outdoor tub and let them grow with Nature's mercy.

This is a 2 feet x 15" (width) x 12" (depth) plastic tub. Substrate is garden soil topped with JBL Manado.

Plants added: crypt wendtii, Tenellus, Pinnatifida, Reincki mini, Ludwigia palustris and H. Araguaia. Let's see how they grow. I will add a tiny filter in the weekend and start fertliser dosing too.

Let's see how this turns out to be.
