Thanks Leslie- I’ll try your suggestions. I’m just worried, that as a relative beginner, I’ll mess the whole thing up. For instance, I read somewhere that the pros move the pregnant male into a fry tank, so all the babies would be born already in the right tank. Big mistake for me. The male erectus freaked out and wouldn’t eat for a few days (much less have his fry) after I moved him to a tiny tank. Also by scrambling to put a knee-high over the outlet pipe I almost caused an overnight overflow. The main thing right now is to keep Bonnie & Clyde (Mustangs), and Ike & Tina (Redi) alive and well. I do appreciate your time-what a fun hobby we have.
PS. I look at your pictures alot!
