well, the firefish has come out only once that i've seen, last night, three hours after lights out. i can see him in the cave at night with a flashlight but i've been trying to leave him alone. i bought some frozen, peeled shrimp and a garlic press, so i'm going to try to feed them that this afternoon. i have a couple of pieces thawing in the fridge.

My zebra barred dartfish took about a month to get completely comfortable in my tank and about 2 months to stop burrowing at night.

Wonderful! Well, if it takes a month, it takes a month. And I have some advise. Don't try to chop thawed shrimp in a garlic press. You end up with mush. In a couple of days I'll try to use frozen shrimp to use in the garlic press. If that doesn't work, it's back to mysis and my husband gets shrimp cocktails.

Don't try frozen shrimp in the garlic press either. my cats wouldn't even eat it. the firefish is out all the time now. gorgeous fish. would recommend them. i had a strange kind of cyano in my tank when i cleaned it today. it was gray and lumpy. but it came out the same way red cyano does. tank is getting beautiful. my big Kenya tree has put out 2 baby trees several inches away from it.

I've got you beat! My one and only is 31, but I'm still kicking, though not so high. The tank is giving me so much joy and enabling me to research so much that there will be no senile dementia for me. I'm constantly reading and teaching my two granddaughters ages 9 and 7. They like fish, too.

brown/gray hair algae

the gray/lumpy stuff has long hairs in it now and i take it out every day but it comes back the next day. i tested the tank last night: ammonia, nitrites, nitrates all 0, phosphates 2.5. can't get better than that. decided my next step is measuring tds. anyone go along with this idea and have a suggestion for a good tds monitor, easy to use and won't break the bank?
