Boring Tank

Postby ironspider » Tue Jun 23, 2020 7:54 am

So after rehoming one of the two cobalt blue tank bosses my tank has zero activity. Everyone just hides in the rocks, even the other cobalt tank boss. All the fish used to swim around all day and it was active but now nothing. I'm thinking since I lost 4 fish this year, I'll get some more, maybe that'll liven it up?

48" 55g.
3 cobalt blue 1 male, 2 female
2 yellow labs both male
2 yellow tail acai mating pair
4 rusties, sex unknown ( not mating )
1 OB
1 Demason sex unknown
1 BN Pleco

I took your advice a bunch of years ago, started with 22 fish, now theres about 100 in 3 tanks. All the original 22 fish were given away, the 100 I have now were all born in my tanks.

Boring? Not a chance. Quite lively, actually!
