Decided to do some changes to the tank... added sand, 40 stalks of lucky bamboo and placing the original driftwood differently

Any suggestions on how to cover up the brick?

The brick is used to hold the bamboo straight as they have 10 openings each... 1 opening holds 2 stalks

Use pond foam. A little bit would cover that black. You tear off chunks to give it 3D effect and is inert (fish safe). It will actually help make that brick safer for the rays too.

Looking stunning G Galantspeedz

I find the morphing that ray pups go through absolutely amazing.

All the babies are looking great!

thanks... somehow the 3 bd pups and the male p14 hybrid is growing much faster as compared to the rest...

hopefully the bd spots will turn white when they grow older

feeding them a mix of mussels meat and squid meat... and once a week treat of live ghosts shrimps...

Yes.. its strange but I have also had instances where some pups grow very fast whilst one pup grows a lot slower
Not sure why as they all get fed the same
I had this happen with my P14 female and strange enough, she is about 2 years now and now she is much bigger than the pups that grew faster than her..

I am sure the spots will go white in time.
I also feed mussel meat and shrimp, we don't have easy access to live ghost shrimp here so I use earthworms as a treat
