Remember the fish sleep on the substrate at night but the catfish are everywhere scouring the substrate.


They are out, scurrying around, up and down the glass and across the rock. No schooling activity.

The rest of the fish are all active and some have quite a bit of color.

Sounds good. None of your fish forms schools as part of their behavior. I have heard it said that acei will, but mine never have and others have similar observations.

Fish appear to be doing well

Tank was cycled in 14 days, was it Dr. Tim, or was it the cycled filer material?

The three days advertised did not happen

Online fish wen well

I wish to thank everyone that contributed.

I did test the shipping water and ammonia was very high. They say that happens when oxygen enters the bag and the ph goes back up
