Zebras with tail/fins shrinking?

Posted this on another board and the thought was that maybe the Alpha chewed on them or possibly fin rot. Honestly they don't look beaten up or in bad shape, just almost like they've shrunk. Just thought I'd check in here. Thinking of selling these guys but don't want to list sick fish. Also, dumb q...

2 year to the day

August 8, 2010 I got 4 Zebra fry. First Zebras I've had in more than 15 years. Today when checking the tank I found 1 dead. Not sure why, nothing has changed in 2 years. Not beat up, bloated or starved. Looks in great shape which makes me worry about my water and the others. Sucks. Just needed to ve...

Re: Is flow really needed?

Your shrimp should be fine. My zebras are in a 15g tank with an Emperor 280, Eheim 2026, an Eheim Aquaball and a large air stone. I originally dropped 20 cherry reds in there and a few months later the tank was covered with them.

Re: do zebra plecs attack each other?

Looked at the pictures of your guys and they appear to be very young. I placed 6-8 caves in my 15 gallon tank when I got my 4 that were just over an inch each. They would all share 1 or 2 caves. They are very slow growing plecs so I'd say you have plenty of time to shop for caves.

Re: what food is best for zebera plecs ??

Been feeding Spectrum Thera+A since I bought mine about 10 months ago. They were pretty small when I first got them. Now that they're larger I occasionally drop in some hikari carnivore pellets as well as frozen spirulina brine shrimp

Re: I must have infinite patience or fish who understand Eng

Congrats. I went through the same thing with my Frogs. After two and a half years of trying I gave up, next thing I knew there was fry on the glass. Get ready for some larger batches once they get the hang of things. This is my second year/season with them spawning and the last 2 times were over 50 ...
