The Neon Tetras

Well I have been a little concerned about my Neon Tetras since placing them in the breeding tank as they were having to adapt to changing water parameters with the introduction of the peat. They have not been particular active. I have been feeding them small amounts of baby brine shrimp daily.

Today I did a water change with regular conditioned tap water as I only managed to collect half a cup of rainwater and it was teaming with life. The tap water brought the temperature down to 23°C. I then added a side lamp and placed it below the front of the tank providing a lot more illumination. The Tetras are displaying their stunning colours and seem much more active. I am hoping they are a bit happier and will exhibit some spawning activity soon. They are racing around the tank in comparison to the last couple of days.
