Re: New loach lover. Some pics and videos

Re: Bristlenose Catfish Fry Question

good to know what they are eating! the blue shrimp- are they shrimp or crayfish. i think that the adults will eat them, unless, the shrimp are in the juvi tank.

Re: Bristlenose Catfish Fry Question

well, if they are growing and seem happy then just keep doing what you are doing, is all i can say. bad idea to fix something that is not broken, lol. is there a certain spot they like to hide?

Re: Bristlenose Catfish Fry Question

also try using a commercial algae waffer, but, only one, they may actually like it. if you have a chance ask the lfs owner what he was feeding them. they may have gotton used to it and don't really know that the zucchini is a food.
