Re: My Fish Room

I think their improving. I did a manual removal of the fungus a few days or so ago for the Hoplo. Doesn't seem to be coming back. Raph is losing the red coloring.

I noticed that too after snapping the pic. I have my hospital set up so snagging this one out is in order I think.

Re: My Fish Room

I'm not sure if the red is stress or just normal coloring as this one came in this way.

Re: My Fish Room

I moved the three Akysis prashadi to the pea puffer 29g so that the c. eques tank will be S. American.The 2 parrot doradids are in with the eques. I still need to catch the kooli loach.

Careful hand catching catfish. One of the a. Prashadi stung me and my finger throbbed for a bit.

Re: Fungal treatment

I think I am finally seeing some improvement. I have been dabbing meth blue directly onto the fuzz. I think it's getting smaller.

Re: Fungal treatment

Following bekateen's recommendation that I try dabbing meth blue directly on the fungus so for now I have a blue pom pom cat.

Re: My Fish Room

The second Hoplo to enter the view is malformed. The head is more arrow shaped and sunken across the top.

Good luck,

I will give that a try. Thank you

Re: Starting a fishroom

Very nice. How did you match the curve of the bowfront with your glass brace?

Re: T. Intermedia woodcats

During feeding I noticed one of the male T. Intermedia had tuned solid brown hiding the patterning on his sides. I caught all 3 to see if he would stay solid or revert. Also gave me a chance to sex them, 2m/1f.

Confirmed I have 3 males and a female. I caught all four and by comparing the known male to the other 3 made that I'd. Wouldn't cooperate with the camera guy though.

Re: My Fish Room

Picked up the new air supply, JEHMCO diaphragm pump DAPMH30, for the fish room and it is sooooo cool. Way more air than I need.
