Couple new super red ancistrus

Got these lovelies, just little babies still, but theyre adorable.
The short fin is shy so we don't see him/her that much but the longfin comes out a lot and is really active.

Re: To confirm, all are c aeneus ?

I see no reason to suspect the schultzei of being father, but then IDK what the cross would look like. Keep us updated as it grows. Cheers, Eric A small number of the fry were extremely dark. Some were normal light colour, but a few were pretty dark. I kept 2 youngsters from that batch, the rest ha...

To confirm, all are c aeneus ?

In light of a batch of oddly colored fry, I want to confirm that all of my normal colored (non albino) corydoras are indeed aeneus or if there's a sneak or mix in there.

Interestingly searching ingredients... We did use some foam based ones at one store prior to coming home which were not alcohol based.

Re: Bad incident, take some caution

And both you and that someone else have no other fathomable explanation for fish problems... other than the time proximity of the sanitizer use, then hands in the water, then quick onset of fish health problems? All the ingredients in the sanitizer in the photo are FDA approved and if that sanitize...

Re: Bad incident, take some caution

Wow, sorry to hear this and I must say I am surprised. I imagine hand sanitizer manufacturers and most certainly the FDA (government Food and Drug Administration) understand that people who use their product can then touch their face, mouth, eyes, food, expose their mucus membranes to it, etc. espe...

I'm hoping so! The one CW028 is affected with the densest white in the eye.
But thats a bit of hope which is nice with this mess.

Since he seems to like the leaves, I secured dried leaves to Styrofoam with fishing line, to keep them from falling off or flopping around.

Re: Bad incident, take some caution

How long since the incident, I ask because I have seen eyes restored to full function after similar incidents. Jools October 19th is when it happened, so its been 27 days since. I'm really hoping some get their sight back. The cories function really well, but the barbs are struggling. I can get the...

We weren't home longer than 10 minutes when he did this, so probably about 30 minutes after leaving the store to that point.

Some of the survivors had bleeding in the skull at the time of the incident, but have pulled through and have been back to relative normal. 20201021_000626.jpg Most of the ones lost have been my paleatus group.

Just what he had on his hands of normal use. Usually we wash it off our hands once we get home, but he didn't remember to.

Bad incident, take some caution

This month has been hectic with my 55 gallon... Unfortunately my kid got hand sanitizer in it, which resulted in 6 cories dying and my BN pleco boy. However, many of the survivors have lasting problems now. Many have gone blind. The tank last month was gutted out, everything replaced, I pulled a spa...

It would be awesome if this turned into a spawning. Hes probably just "playing house", but its so good to see.

So caught my boy trying to build a bubble nest using fallen leaves, had a laugh because it wasn't going where he wanted it to go. Gave him some fresh dried leaves that floated and now he's happy, building a bubble nest, and my girls are very chunky... Fingers crossed for a spawn. But enjoy a laugh J...
