Fish Tank: April 2003 Archives

Bunch of bullies

It's looking more and more likely that I'll need an isolation tank of some sort. Six of the Danios are picking on the 7th, leaving it looking rather gaunt and with a tattered tail. I'm worried that it'll get stressed and starved to death. There's also another of the big female danios that looks like something's wrong with its tail, although I can't get a good look at it because she won't keep still long enough.

Also, one of the angels has taken up chasing the other three. This is not such a problem at the moment - it'll be more of a problem if two or three start ganging up on someone.

The angels have also taken a liking to nibbling the wisteria shoots. The wisteria is a prolific grower though, so hopefully this won't be a problem either.

Dropped into Daniel's this arvo and picked up a bunch of plants for Ding. Daniel's tanks are looking great, and they somehow manage to grow a jungle of plants without even trying. Last time I was there I could see most of the bottom of their 4 foot tank, now it's completely overgrown again. Fiona pulled out a bag full of plants, and the tank didn't look any different for it.

So then I wander over to Chris' to drop them off. His tank is the same age as mine (we filled them within a week of each other), but he's been having trouble with his plants (hence the infusion from Daniel :) )

Then I get home and do a water change, as I just haven't had the chance before now to get to it.

A rather fishy evening :)
