White Clouds (Tanichthys albonubes)
Hey guys, I am a new member and not really knowledgable about keeping fish, having only kept goldfish (successfully) before.
We have a small pond - 6" deep x 18" x 3ft in the backyard. It is in partial sun and gets morning sun and afternoon shade. I put a few plants in there - above and below water level. I soon observed that the plants attracted mosquito crawlers.
So, I changed the water (fresh), left it for 3 days to clear the chlorine and flouride and then bought 5 "white cloud" (Tanichthys albonubes) fish - 2 female and 3 males. They started eating the wrigglers and all looked good. The water has a fountain which I turn on for 1 hr twice a day. The water is clear and not overly cold or hot.
They seem to be OK, but have taken to hiding when I come out to the pond.
I just wanted to say hello and ask for information about white cloud; does anyone keep these little guys and have them living with frogs or other fish?
