Two new additions to the community are currently acclimatising in bags at the top of the tank. I floated them for 30 mins and have added a little of my aquarium water to their bags. It’s been about 45 mins now so I’ll add some more water shortly. A sudden change in pH can kill fish so I’m being cautious. The new fellas are an algae eating shrimp (looks a giant in the picture) called Speckled Jim and a dwarf suckermouth catfish called George. We are getting on famously, obviously we are on first name terms already.
Snailor the snail is ploughing through the algae but is pulling a train of poop – and I was thinking the snails would help to clean up. The picture looks like Netty the Platy is spouting a cartoon think bubble. What do fish think about?
