Fish Tank: May 2005 Archives

Well papa krib was being a bastard and terrorising my tetras and corys, so he's been evicted from that tank. I thought about putting him in the aggressive fish tank in the other room, but I think he'd be murdered there. And I thought about putting him back in his tank with his little wifey, but thought she'd probably pick on him again, and he would be likely to eat the babies. So I decided to put him in the angel tank (three angels and three top-dwelling glass catfish). He'll be the only bottom-dweller in there and the angels can take care of themselves. I just hope he doesn't get ich in there, will have to keep a close eye on it. So far he's just cowering in the corner, but I put a nice big cave in there from the other tank he was in so hopefully he'll find it.

The angel fish I got from the neighbour died on Saturday morning :( Kicking myself that I didn't move it into the big tank. It might have had half a chance against other angels than tiger barbs, a mystery yellow cichlid and a huge catfish. So that was sad.

Also lost another neon tetra in tank 2, so down to 4 tetras in that tank. Whether it was caused by introducing the papa krib in there or not I don't know. But they've definitely become middle rather than bottom dwellers. So far the three corys are doing ok, although they are being chased around by the krib, which I'm a little worried about. But papa is definitely a lot happier in that tank.

Here's one of the babies. Isn't it cute? If barely visible, heh.

And here's a bunch of them, with the father behind them for scale.
