The replanted black ear shark catfish has grown 1"-2" and done well in the 1800 gal for the first month or so:

Minus one more gulper, which had fought the illness for a month. So down to 6. But another is sick with the same symptom of imbalance. That bug that entered our tanks in 2018 most usually causes one of the two symptoms or both: body swelling all over and/or loss of balance. Only had the gulper for less than a year. 9"-10".

Alpha female RTC was attacked. Tentatively it seems to be the alpha male RTC and perhaps also the TSNxRTC hybrid. Is this a test of strength of a potential breeding mate?

4-Pack vulture catfish update: one female died at 8yo 26"/65cm (same symptoms we often see with our fish - a period of fast followed by erratic swimming), another female is sick, two males are ok.

Biting the bullet - Dora the 2ft 4yo dorado catfish goes from 240 to 1800 gal - risky forced gamble.

Dorado's 1st day in 1800 gal: minor bites & stress from the tank mates, as a result silver dollars, Asian USD cat, and black shark go out, the trio of soldier cats is in.
