BABIES!

The adult fish are still pale, I think it's because they're now on a white substrate as opposed to a black one (which is where they were to begin with.)

They started getting snippy with each other, so I think this evening I'm going to put papa fish back into the other tank so there's less stress on the fish.

Turned the lights on for the plants. Saw the other leaf fish come out and play, so I know he's alive. Hasn't quite gotten to the "OH you feed me at this point in the day, so I'll wait like my brother." I'm sure he'll get there.

I need a bottom feeder for this tank though. I know the loaches are bottom feeder-esque, but they're kinda covering midrange. I need something to eat shrimp pellets that the leaf fish miss so I don't have to keep fishing them out... Any suggestions?
Great looking babies Carriwin
Good luck with them

Called the fish store today about sick fish. Fed the fish twice and watched them. I like the new look of my tank.

Ruutah, totally would use cories, but the leaf fish will most likely eat them.

Tmaier, where would I find a kuhli loach? Are they picky? I may have to add more hiding places if I go with him. Would they get along with the leaf fish? What about everyone else? How big do they get? Guess I should research, but I figured I'd ask our resident expert.

Koopa, your tank is rockin' dude!!

Thanks for the compliments on the babies! I have no clue what I'm doing, but we're figuring it out together.

Shelly, he's so cute!!! Did you name it?

I am no expert on Kuhli's. I had to call around two different stores to find the ones I wanted. Lots of stores have the black ones but I really wanted the stripes. I started out with five. They have always gotten along with everyone. Some hide more than others. But they definitely like options.


29g fresh with Betta, Kuhli's, Neons, Denison Barbs, ADF, Mystery and Nerite Snails.

Some plants: Anubias, Java Fern, mosses and other misc.

8g Biorb with Betta and plants.

10g Mystery Snail Nursery

5g Plant grow tank with Pink Ramshorn Snails
