Hey all! There have been a few changes – good and bad – over recent months. Sorry for the delay!
On the down side, I have lost quite a few fish, mainly after unwisely purchasing a Siamese Fighting Fish / Betta male from Pets at Home. The second day after his introduction to the tank the female was dead, a couple of days later the new male was dead. Then White Spot was evident on many of the fish. I medicined the tank (details in a future post); some died, some recovered. Mr C the male Dwarf Cichlid was very spotty and has lived to tell the tale. So too was Stephen the male Bristlenose, but he is healthy and bristling nicely.
Current (happy and healthy) inmates are as follows:
Scissor-tail Rasbora x 5 Rasbora trilineata
Platy x 1 female Xiphophorus variatus
Bristlenose Catfish x 2 male and female Ancistrus temminckii
Nancy and Stephen
Dwarf Gourami x 1 female Colisa lalia
Sterbas Corydora x 3 Corydorus sterbai
Dwarf Cichlid x 1 male Apistogramma borelli
Mr C or Grump
Upside Down Catfish x 2 Synodontis nigriventris
Clown Loach x 5 Botia macracantha
Shrimp x 3
Apple snail x 2
Zebra snail x 1
I’m planning on buying some more fish friends in the new year and I’m considering a group of Pearl Gourami Trichogaster leeri and a group of Dwarf Flag Cichlids Laetacara curviceps.. I’m still enjoying the decision making process!
