They are in the micro cat 29g. Which has some bamboo caves and is heavily planted. I need to research these a bit more. I know they like wood to hides

I bought a self-help tape the other day.
It was called "How to handle disappointment."
When I opened the box, it was empty. :YMTONGUE:

One of the doradids is hanging out under a crypt against the front glass. I fed some Ken's fry pellets (0.5mm ish) and saw it feeding. One hurdle surmounted.

Thanks.
This little fella gave me a scare as he was laying on his side and I couldn't tell if his gill plates were moving. I dropped some food in and he started moving.

Nice find!
I've never seen Rhynchodoras woodsi in the flesh.
As above, keep us updated with progress.
Thanks
