They get more photogenic by the day.

Enjoyed reading this thread pal. Those clowns are in need of a hormone injection or two to multiply them

Diddy P.

All settled in, tank @ 1.003 SG.

Eating well but doesn't recognise anything but snails as food, had a little nip on frozen chopped mussel, he didn't really eat it though.

Hello boss, today they were fearless, the usual scatty dashing but. . . I'm well happy I can't describe it!

Today I am part of the shoal! < that will have to do!!!

Edit- Alpha loach is obvious in all three pictures.

The next step towards my ultimate goal.

Tuesday 26th. Pre feed party.
Time for some new stock I think!

Some sort of gain can also be made toward the ultimate goal of a marine system. 8 years of waiting boils down to the next 6 months!
I hope I read enough of the right material.

Only one lingering problem with a Cory who seems to be ok some days and other days she's far from it.

Do you know the Latin name? I'll check it out.

Next for this tank is an algae eater, hopefully L090 papa panaque.

Alternatively any xingu system plec will do because of higher temperature for the clowns and the softer more acid water conditions.

Maybe if it's safe?

I'm considering putting the bichir in with the clowns but the prospect of bite marks! No sir, not a chance!

Next phase is the reef.

Edit- Fire eels (Mastacembelus erythrotaenia) found it! Warm acid is fine! Maybe! Good call!

According to Wikipedia, the scientific name is, "Mastacembelus erythrotaenia."

Bb, drink caffeine! --

Thank you though, I appreciate the assistance!

I searched fire eel, you only get one option. Actually could be a perfect set of tank mates. Already stock boxes (not packets) of bloodworm, if I can get the eels onto frozen it should present no problems. The clowns eat at least a pack a week.

FOOD FIGHT!

I've got a tire track eel that will fight bloodworms from my hand lol. I might let you have him when it gets warmer again. He'll outgrow my 45 at some point. He's gotta be 8" now though.

He's not shy at all. The best fish to watch.
