Re: Is this tank ok for zebs?

He's a very impressive fish but no, not until I have a number of experienced females would I dare let him near any again and only on a one on one situation where I could keep a lost eye on them methinks.

Re: Photo Request

Wow small world. Just been researching your food and sent a message to a local importer in Australia to see if she's interested in bringing some in.

Re: Ideal tank size

I've had zebs in 2ft, 3ft and 4ft. Just remember they won't range very far for food and tend to like to stick around their own territory. In a 2ft, I only had 1ft wide and about 15" high and I don't think they particularly liked having their caves so near to the front where I could see them better. ...

Re: diet for 1/2 to 3/4 inch fry

I just ordered the Repashy shrimp souffle to try. Might not make it through customs but you never know till you try. No dairy or egg products in it which is usually a no no for import so I might get lucky. I usually feed Hikari algae wafers, a little bit of Sera Vilformo if they seem ok to take more...

Re: Is this tank ok for zebs?

Wow this thread is a long time ago. One male in that colony of 5 turned out a killer. The other 4 mysteriously died over the years and I could never really figure out why? I got a few more zebs and added them to him and all was well until the tank let go and I caught them in only a few inches of wat...

Big tank

I have 4 zeb tanks from 2ft to 2.5ft totalling 18 zebs of various sizes and ages. I was toying with the idea of moving them all into a 4ft x 15 x 18, or a 4ft x 18 x 18 or even a 4.5ft x 20 x 18 and setting up various tiered caves and landscaped areas for them all. What I am wondering about is how 1...

I have recently installed ugf on my zeb tank but its still running with the internal and canister filters until the gravel is fully cycled in. I have also planted the tank in numerous sword plants and anubias. I have a cherry shrimp crew for grooming the plants. My reasoning is my zebs just don't se...

Must have just been a one off as the others are still all fine. I did take out the biggest dw and replaced it with a couple of slate tiles over the caves as it might have really been pulling the ph down. I also took the sponge off the canister intake and got rid of the glass shrimp. The high tank te...

I lost this one yesterday and I am still trying to figure out why it died. It could have been from fighting as its sides where always quite scratched. It may have found a dead spot in the tank beside one of the caves and eaten something off like a dead glass shrimp so I have moved the cave in a bit ...

Cranky puss male?

This one is so cranky it fights with females and even goes into other logs for a fight, its gotta be male, right? http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd85/Brengun_photos/L046%20zebra%20plec/dIMG_6211Small.jpg http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd85/Brengun_photos/L046%20zebra%20plec/dIMG_6218Small.jp...

Male or hairy female

This one tricks me. Its hairy and coarse to touch but its so fat. Seldom ever see it out of its cave. What do you think? http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd85/Brengun_photos/L046%20zebra%20plec/eIMG_6233Small.jpg http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd85/Brengun_photos/L046%20zebra%20plec/eIMG_6236S...

Well thats not bad news, as he has just taken a cave for himself away from the dominant male and right away from the agro male who belts everything except the dominant male.
Its not a bad spot and he gets good current there as well. He should settle in and be happy there. :)

Any chance female?

Going for a hat trick of three. Any chance this one is a female as well or could it be a recessive male? http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd85/Brengun_photos/L046%20zebra%20plec/fIMG_6252Small.jpg http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd85/Brengun_photos/L046%20zebra%20plec/fIMG_6259Small.jpg http://...
