What I thought I knew about vents and habits

Postby pmisery » Thu Apr 10, 2008 6:12 pm

So after using my best judgment to guess the sex of my BR's, I made the guess that I had to females and a male. However, based on the the habits and new behavior of these guys, I think I have two males and a single female. To save server space, please check out my Picsa album, it is free to view and open to the public. Feel free to look at all the fish folders, once of these times I will figure out how to organize them into one folder. Anyways, any help is appreciated.

not sure abouth the sex but very stressed fish.

Nice healthy well shaped fish!!! :thumb: The tank looks nice but defenately could use some more shelter and teritorial markers. I don't know what size those plants will get but right now they are to small to give enough shelter. Bolivians like to hide and shelter underneath broad leaved plants like Echinodorus. Those come in diferent sizes and also smaler once that still provide enough cover.
