That's amazing, Chad.
Sorry for sorta off-topic, but I couldn't find where you mentioned this anywhere.
What fertilizer do you use when growing your phyto?
I assumed they were all the same, but then I had one bottle of f/2 mix go bad on me after several months, and ordered another kind. It had some ingredients different, and it came in two parts.

I use the Fritz F2 two part fertilizer here. Keep it in a fridge, and use clean pipettes any time we start cultures.

Awesome. I have one mix from Florida aqua farms that has vitamin C in it, and I have the Fritz 2 part that doesn't have vit C. Thanks for confirming that the C is unnecessary for nutritious phyto, healthy pods, and healthy fish.

Very cool. Im happy to see people taking initiative in captive breeding. I'd love to undertake a task like this in the future. Way to help pave the way to sustainable fish keeping!

We are taking a break from the multibar/venusta hybrids. We lost our venusta male unexpectedly.
We've also sold the bellus broodstock to make room for new projects.

Instead, we'll be pursuing the Tigerpyge hybrid. Broodstock arrives this week, expect a thread on that in the next few months. :)
