Sorry for your loss Eric. Thanks for sharing your unfortunate experience so other L280 keepers can benefit from it.

Re: Hypancistrus L173 feeding

Hi Anna

1. What food are you feeding the L173 adults and L46 fry?
2. Is the food in paste form?

Thanks

Re: HELP cant keep baby l134 alive

Try using some IAL and a thin layer of sand in the fry box. I also don't feed my L134 fry for 2 days after the yolk sack is absorbed. Thereafter, I feed the Hikari First bites only for the first week.

Re: HELP cant keep baby l134 alive

Hi Ron,

Try adding a fine layer of sand in the fry saver, a piece of driftwood and a few IAL. I add small piece of driftwood in the egg tumbler too and hv noticed wigglers with egg sacks gracing on the driftwood.

My fry survival rate is very high now. Good luck.

@bekateen

You'll love these L280s. Love the bamboo caves.

Please keep us posted about your L280s.

WC L280 (Micracanthicus Vandragti) Update July 23, 2018

WC L280 (Micracanthicus Vandragti - from Rio Orinoco) import being acclimated. They are absolutely stunning fish and came in real healthy. Surpassed all my expectations. A big shout out to Freshwater Exotics USA for the outstanding quality, packing and overall service on my very first order. 2018051...
