Well I still won't say what they are as they are in the guess this species thread...
THEY did however eat today..
They seem to really enjoy the leaf litter and caves in the middle of the 55.
Hoping to breed these for sure...

Going to get some black blasting sand today I think?
Want to give dem pistos a tank of their own???
What does everyone think?
The angels don't need /won't appreciate the water I am going to have these guys in soon...
All my reading says even softer water then the rams!
My caucs were NOT like this at all.
They did breed in my tap....
So far they are eating well with the angels as excellent little piggy examples!!!

I am thinking a 40b with some dithers if that would be better then the angels,which I think it would.
Pencil fish as dithers?????

On the pisto/gbr front I am 'knee deep' in leaf litter in tanks and fish seem to love it!
I bought coconut fiber plant pot liners and have them soaking with new pots..
Do we think they are safe after soaking??

Pencilfish are neat looking fish.

For testing I use a couple cull dwarf shrimp. Don't have those though do you?

Fun fish, haven't owned them yet but have had my eye on them.

No pencil fish today...
When my LFS gets them usually it will be a couple different kinds.

I will wait to separate the pistos and angels longer on second thoughts...

Hey B I soaked my first batch of leaves(elm) in 1g of ro for a day or two and then pour the tannic/possibly contaminated water down the drain.
I did like a handful at a time.
I use a whole grocery bag of leaves so far!!!
I have a garbage can full of Maple next!!

Coco liners and pots are soaking in prepped tap.
I always worry about contamination of some 'cleaner' type chemical when purchasing from 'non pet stores',even feed places...

Better safe then sorry.
That is why I will keep the "new comers" together a little longer....
I still haven't even mixed Poppas or zerOs fish with any others.
No new mixes in bandit breeding residence in YEARS...
But I still have new fish!!!

Couldn't find 'humic acid' today?
Got 50lbs fine/50lbs medium black blasting....
I'll have to visit a grow shop for the acid...
