two plants and 5 rummynosed tetras

Final catch: 5 rummynosed tetras and 2 Anubias barteri plants

I had a tough time deciding between a school of Julii Cories and the Rummynosed tetras, but my friend who works there said he talked to a local breeder who has a batch of really nice cories he'd like to sell in a few weeks, so I decided on the tetras. There were five so instead of splitting up the little school, all of them went into the bag I know these guys are healthy because the store's last shipment was about 2 weeks ago. Anyway, they are now swimming around happily in the 55 gallon.


Oh, but I gave the store my two Asian Suncats. I think they are the culprit behind the death of my Blue Ram I had seen them quarrel breifly, but hadn't thought anything of it. It wasn't my water because pH was 6.8, ammonia 0, nitrates 0 and nitrites 0. I double checked it with the store's test kits, just in case mine were screwy. *Sigh* He was one of my favorites.

Nice going Ruby! You didn't break up a nice family

My sentiments again on your loss

thanks Jchillin, I was really hoping to use that male for spawning as well. I haven't seen a prettier one yet since I had bought him. I guess I've learned my lesson on thinking they were "just playing around."

On a happier note, I wish I had a camera to show off how cool these rummynosed tetras are... they are schooling all over the tank, it is so cool.

Doesn't any of your friends have a camera you could borrow?

actually, I'm at a friend's apartment right now, and one of the guys has a digi camera... perhaps I'll have them up by tonight

btw, the guys just roll their eyes at me when I asked and told them why. hehe, they're great friends though!

I have five rummy's and they are awesome. I'd take some pics but they never stay still and I'm just not skilled enough with the camera to get a good one. Good luck with your new fishes.
