Babysitting a Jacobfreibergi Peacock in hospital tank today. Guy seemed super healthy at the LFS and is now being very lethargic. Clamped fins and laying on the bottom. No signs of illness, hoping its just stress..

Planning to set up the 29g today, pics to come

Hope he keeps ok for you. Like you say it could be down to stress maybe keep your tank lights off?

Acclimated 2 mollies to saltwater from 4 pm yesterday until 6 am to day, dropped them in . They looked great in the tank until my snowflake eel noticed them. 14 hours to acclimate eel food... Won't be trying that again. It's weird because I have had him with a yellow damsel, coral banded shrimp, and my clean up crew for over 6 months and never seen him go after any of them and they're smaller then the mollies were

That sucks! My wife wants us to get a Green Spotted Puffer and put with her Mollies and slowly acclimate together but she doesn't believe me that the gsp will have them as a snack

My elephant nose decided not to eat again this morning, so I've decided to not feed him for a day and hopefully he'll be hungry tomorrow night.


55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon vampire shrimp, green lace shrimp and snails.
The lip/ edge on the inside of the rim of the tank was allowing water to run around the rim and catch where the wires touched (from the heater and other internal filter).

The water was catching and somehow wicking UP 1.5-2" over the rim and down the sides and down the wire to the floor. I put the wires into a little gap on the back plastic section of the glass aquarium top and now the wires don't touch the rim: and the floor and wires were nice and dry yesterday.

Weird...but I think that fixed the issue.

Learned about how to flush my canister filter correctly. I will try that then I don't have to open it every time. And can use that to do larger pwc too, yipee. I am headed to the hardware store to see if I can get a fitting to leave on permanently. I have 2 parts for the Python thing, one is an extension I think which would work length wise perfectly!
