Yssichromis sp. "blue tipped"

Postby lleife15 » Fri Aug 02, 2019 11:25 pm

I purchased a small group (1M 4F) of these from the Minnesota Aquarium Society auction on Thursday. They seem to be very timid as I have been unble to coax them out to get photos yet. Will post photos when available.

In regards to the fish being very timid. With the tank on the lower level of a stand, could me walking by be affecting their ability to be comfortable enough to come out and explore the tank? Any answer appreciated.

Lucas, yes that is very possible especially since the fish are new to the tank. I have had similar experiences with fish on bottom rack levels since I'm not in the room very often except for feeding and maintenance.
