Saddly I have lost three of them, The others are swimming and doing well. I think the ones that passed were malnourished when i got them, they didn't eat much after coming home and sat on the bottom of the tank. The others are liking the big tank. I removed the red tail loches to another tank but left the striped botias to buddy up with the clowns. They are all getting along well together. I am going to go when I can and get some more so the 3 have a couple more friends to play with. I will try to get a couple more pics of them soon. Does anyone know if the color on there tails gets more red with age or is it caused by something else???
I hope so one was swimming vertical for a couple days but is now out with the gang having fun. I have to keep adding snails to their tank for snacks between them and the stripped loaches they have totally wiped out the tank...
Added more snails to the tank. They are really happy now. They also love the bloodworms that I put in the tank. I made them a cave out of 3 coffee cups. They love to sit in the middle of the crowded together. It is hard to see them but you can make out the outlines of them so I know they are in there and ok... They are also getting along great with the stripped botias... Was worried for awhile but they play together so it is all good. I have to keep raiding the other tanks to get snails for them to munch on.. They are way too cool, I am so glad that I got them.. I will get some more pics after I get my new camera.. hopefully this weekend..
Oh yes and it does close up shots that are awesome. Just have to wait for them to get more in they are sold out at all of the stores. The clowns seem to have ich again so I increased the temp back up to 85 for another 2 weeks will have to wait and see what happens with them after that.. Do they like cucumbers?? I mean is that a good veggie to give them.?? I put in the algae wafers but want to give then something fresh to eat.
Love it... I just took some pics and you can see the water spots and algae spots... i have to wipe down the glass again.. New camera is here and takes awesome pics. now if the fish would just hold still I'd be in business... Will post some later..
