The new cardinals look great, good luck with them!
I can't believe your LFS carries ranger plecos! NiceToday I am counting 15 of the Brilliant Rasbora again. They move so much it is hard to get a good count, but that is where I ma landing most often, today, lol! The new Cardinals are looking good. Thinking about moving them into the main tank tomorrow. Might give it another day or two though, you cannot be too careful! LFS has some nice ranger plecos. Maybe 1 of those and ? next.
$30 a piece, but they look pretty nice and are small. My understanding is they will stay pretty small. One site said up to 7", but most say 4", and even the 7 would be okay in my 75. Right now I would say they are just over an inch long, maybe 1.5"I can't believe your LFS carries ranger plecos! Nice
If I may make a suggestion for your QT and possibly your 75 gallon tank (I got the 50% off deal at petco this year).. is to put a foam cover on the intake. The foam covers will need to be cleaned from time to time but for little fish it saves them being sucked into the filter.. The Foam pads are pretty inexpensive from amazon.. I run 2 filters in my 75 gallon and they both do wonders.. hope that helps
Thanks, me too! The first two batches were discouraging! But now, moving forward!I’m so glad your tetra troubles are over I found this thread on the new threads page and got very invested reading through lol
I also obsessively count my schooling fish, even without any losses to spook me! But they all look so darn similar...Everyone looks good this morning. Cardinals look bright and colorful. Seem to be settling in. I am only counting 13 rasbora this morning though. I think I need to stop trying to count them, lol. No carcasses or remains of any kind have been found in the tank however, so I have no idea where they are going if they are missing, or alive!
I haven't checked it yet, but it is unlikely as I have a sponge pre-filter specifically to prevent it. I am probably going to move these into the main tank, then go to the lfs and get 3 more. That would give me 8, which will be good for them.I have not kept them myself, but have read they are escape artists. Have you checked your filter?
