Re: FINALLY a cheni!!

Congratulations Jim, I have been searching for new Cheni in the UK for months now with no luck. Our last remaining Cheni died a few months back, the tank is just not the same without her. Considering how many we had at one point it seems shocking to realise they have all gone, such entertaining fish...

Hope that helps,

The Rasboras are still very shy, always tucked in behind the big bits of wood. We went through a bad spot a while back when one by one our Cheni just wasted away, it was devastating to watch. We also lost a few Rasboras at that time the water was fine although nitrate was a bit raised. Since then I ...
