    Concerned about my new Apistogrammas

    Thanks Eddy, he is still alive and definitely eating some Artemia at least. I did not think of garlic but will try that. Fingers crossed!

    Male cocktoo hiding from female

    Also there could be trouble with the Corydoras if you have breeding Apistsogrammas, and fry are unlikely to survive with cardinal tetras in the tank. Probably best just to keep one of the males.

    Concerned about my new Apistogrammas

    Ah OK thanks, hopefully it is a female, I will just have to wait and see...The male chases both the small ones, but they don't seem too bothered and are eating well.

    Not a very nice photo, but this is the smallest one, to me this one looks more like a small version of the male, while the other I posted above is more different. But I could be wrong.

    The same situation this morning.

    Concerned about my new Apistogrammas

    Yes, I know. The thing is that before they all became ill, one male was dominant but only really defending a relatively small area, the other male still seemed to be fine and I had tried to arrange the tank so that they could get out of each others way and not see each other. But I had actually...

    Concerned about my new Apistogrammas

    Well I have done it, for better or worse, set up the small tank, caught him (had to take nearly everything out to find him again). Of course since the move he is totally stressed, dark and not moving. I probably should have done this before, but honestly I thought he was on his last legs (or...

    Concerned about my new Apistogrammas

    Well amazingly the other male is still alive! A few days ago I found him lying slightly on one side under a leaf looking dead, but on trying to get him out with a net, the other male chased him and he dashed off to the back of the tank, where he disappeared again. I have been trying...

    That is good news, thank you!

    Here are two of the fish that recovered (failed to get an in focus shot of the other, but it is fine still).

    Apisto caves - natural

    Why not just make a selection of little caves and crevices with wood and rocks? And use plenty of leaf litter too. I am sure the caves don’t have to be perfectly cylindrical!

    Hillstream Loaches And Breeding

    I haven't kept discus but always thought this was completely illogical. I have sometimes used the term aquascape to refer simply to the arrangement of plants, wood and rocks. But I do know and appreciate exactly what you are talking about. But why keep them in sub-optimal conditions? Well...

    Hillstream Loaches And Breeding

    Well, actually you almost certainly could survive if you had to, but you would not be happy or healthy, and the same applies to fish kept in conditions that are not ideal for them. I have only seen very few of those aquarium coop videos and was not impressed by any.

    Hillstream Loaches And Breeding

    That was an interesting thread about collecting borellii and their habitat - very useful for anyone thinking of a biotope setup for them, with other species listed as well. I was surprised to see so many snails caught with them. And yes, the habitat of hillstream loaches is very different even...

    Concerned about my new Apistogrammas

    Yes, but supposedly these fish were quarantined and treated for parasites before being sold. I don't think I can save the one Apistogramma as I went to one shop and could find anything with levamisole, and did not have time to go to the other shop. And anyway I can't even find him, I know it...
