    Interesting although I’m thinking maybe the log was getting a bit small? It’s just not like them to prefer a cave. They also like to have room to roll over. They often sleep upside down...

    One Eyed Fish

    No real special needs. Just make sure it gets enough to eat, it’s a little on the thin side. If there’s aggression or dominance from the other fish it might stay near the glass to protect its blind side. If there’s none of that I wouldn’t worry about it...

    Current Stock: Full Or Can I Add?

    Agreed. All shoaling species should be in groups of at least 5-6. Also why do you want to stock to full capacity and create higher risk and more work.... (not to mention less room for the fish).

    There’s no possible way of knowing that. It will use it all the time if it’s all there is, but in nature they favour hollowed out tree branches.

    My last one was 16”, in a 6ft x 2ft 180g. They’re not a very bendy fish and it couldn’t turn round without doing a three-point turn. The tank was too small, imo. Incidentally they much prefer a pipe to a cave. I use sections of guttering downspout.

    No. Cory eggs are white, and scattered individually all over the tank, not placed all in one place together.

    Question Do Bumblebee Catfish And Red Tail Sharks Get Along?

    The Asian ones (Pseudomystus) grow to about 6” max, so they’re physically incapable of eating a Red Tailed Shark. The thing is they’re nocturnal, so could be damaging the shark in the dark when it’s helpless, especially if it’s hungry. How big is the tank?

    The only two Tanganyikan Synos with white dorsal and pectoral spines are S. lucipinnis and S. petricola. I’d assume this one is lucipinnis because of the random nature of the spots...

    Important When Do Frozen Bloodworms Become Too Old?

    If bloodworms are anything but vivid bright red, do not feed them... and once they’re thawed I wouldn’t refreeze them. When I have the big blocks I just break some off as required... or break it up into smaller bits.
