Finally caught the 2 clowns after 1 hour and 30 mins of trying to catch the 2nd clown. Really smart fish, kept circling around the rock but then the flame angel helped me lol, they are enemys lol, and the angel was glad to get them out.

(@N & F) Redness can also be bacterial. Much like an infected cut on human flesh takes on a localised redness. I think there are some blood disorders that will cause skin redness but like you say these can sometimes be linked with ammonia.

The picture posted looks exactly like "cotton wool" mouth fungus, which isn't a fungus. That's what I would aim at. It doesn't have to be your water quality or tank cleanliness. (Most people get defensive over such issues, there really is no need) we all love our water just as much as the fish, at least the people on this page must be keen on water. It's good to know water but. . .

Many factors can cause this, stress of handling, abuse from tank mates, water change (tank moving etc) simply catching the fish is enough.
It is treatable, many products available.

Apart from that, hope your fish are well

Did a "fish crawl" today, driving out to 2 fish shops that are quite far from me. Saw some awesome fish! But I was good, and only bought 2 plants, and no fish.

A beautiful Christmas moss, very expensive! And a piece of lucky bamboo.

Fish are clever, especially when they don't want to be taken out of water

Why did you catch them?

(Jealous of the flame angel, one of my first favourite fish I ever saw on my first day ever in a fish store!)

Lucky "light" bamboo by any chance?

Oh, no- we haven't got the light bamboo yet. Was on my way to the bamboo shop we have near here but then family arrived and had to be given tea and driven around.

Going to look for bamboo tomorrow. The question is if I can get a piece with a big enough diameter.

Oh, and I made legs for the other light fitting out of big lego blocks. Sounds cheesy, but actually looks pretty good

(I still love Lego) it's one good reason to babysit!
That light must be cool looking, especially if you are a fan of the blocks! Retro with a dash of nostalgia.


Good luck with the search!

@masha - you must post a pic of this setup. Legos are cool until you step on one with your bare feet.
