    20 Long Planted Pea Puffer Build

    Well, earlier in the week I thought I would need to share some disappointing news. On Tuesday I could not locate them, my son also searched. MIA? Thursday night my son texted me, he found them swimming. Yeah! They got a water change and brine shrimp yesterday. About to feed some bloodworms.

    20 Gallon Tank Advice for a new fish keeper.

    Agree, your doing fine, far better than most "Newbies". Of course from time to time we all have had issues with our "Wet" pets. As mentioned continue your feeding and water change regime. I normally feed mine once a day and do have a fasting day once a week. Good Luck! Let's see some pics...

    Bolivian Rams not pairing

    It depends on the fish. I have noticed this behavior with proven and new pairs. They will bicker, lip-lock, chase and also separate. It's her way to see if if he is worthy. "Mother Nature" at work. Give them more time.

    Fed some bloodworms/brine shrimp to them a couple of hours ago. They were interested and even saw them take a bite of two. So here are a pics, very poor quality but.. at least they are eating. Used a pipette to squirt close to them, will eventually try the tweezers. Gotta find the macro lens...

    Is this black beard algae?

    You may also try Hydrogen Peroxide, I spot treat with a spray bottle or a pipette. If it gets too bad then may need to remove and soak for around 3 mins or so. Good Luck!

    Well water change today, they are still with me, in fact they came over to the siphon tube to check it out. Just watched a vid of ChrissFishes01 feeding his puffer with tweezers. Gonna give a try tomorrow.

    Thoughts on my 10 gallons?

    Nice! A word a caution about the mason jar. I tried some glass globes when I first started, I was experimenting to create a cave and tied /glued moss to it. An SAE swam in but could not find it's way out. Good Luck!

    Yesterday noticed some commotion, saw a Clown Loach had a Ramshorn snail. Tried to get some pics, it was swimming around so fast and of course the other inhabitants were photo bombing. Here the best of not so good 200+ clicks. Oh, and the Africans are doing fine.

    20 Long Planted Pea Puffer Build

    Thanks, for the theory it is a possibility, just so surprising and difficult to deal with. Just thought having a juvenile group might work. Probably will never know for sure. The 2 remaining do cruise the tank together. Fingers-crossed....

    20 Long Planted Pea Puffer Build

    Son found another one last night. Well down to "2". One appears to have a bit of a belly the other not so much. Of the 3 found dead, two had a fin missing, and one it appeared part of the belly gone. ???
