Monitored our sequestered neon tetra today
She actually is looking and acting much more normal, in fact, like 100% normal, though I suspect she is unhappy being in a large glass jar with only a few floating plants and moss.
Wondering when we should re-introduce her to the brood?
There is no filter on this jar so I will have to add/change water daily. I was thinking about moving our betta to the jar but the glass is not smooth and viewing is distorted from just about all angles. Will probably convert the jar into a plant/moss staging vessel, a bit prettier than an OSH paint bucket but also less functional.
Yesterday we picked up 3 new Super Tigers to replace the ones we lost (1 DOA and 3 shuffled the shrimp ladder to heaven) and now we have 5.
We slow drip acclimated them, held overnight and introduced them this morning in the light. All shrimp were visible in the evening, and a new molt was found, there are now 5 molts visible in part or whole.
Day 2 of o. huaorani
in our 6G Cyl Tank with our 4 other neon tetras. Originally we thought these were o. hoppei
, but they have "colored up" some on their dorsal flanks, the tail markings are more like o. hoppei than o. huaorani though.
This fish is new to us so it's hard to say much, but they seem active. We have observed them stuck to side of tank, sucking leaves, resting, swimming, and generally sticking together as a pair. They are adorable, I hope they both survive considering what they probably went through before I got them. We are happy with these peaceful fish and our neon tetras are avoiding them though not acting threatened.
