Re: Zebra Plec - Not Growing

Mmm fair point. I usually do bi-weekly water changes but perhaps I should try to resist!

Yeah I just want to be sure he is OK and will be OK. I certainly dont want to stress him out but clearly something isnt working at the moment.

I'll let you know how I get on :)

Re: Zebra Plec - Not Growing

Hiya Thanks for the reply! :) I have tried to ensure the food is spread about the tank well, they wont eat anything unless its really small so I grind the pellets/sticks etc into powder and put that in front of the filter outlet so it scatters all over the tank so that they can each forage.

Hi Gary

Thanks again for taking the time to reply, it is very much appreciated. I know you cant over filter but I am just toying with different ideas about filters/powerheads etc.

Re: Group of adult zebras - some Q's if you dont mind

Thanks for taking the time to reply Gary, I really appreciate it. :) They are in a tank with some cardinals at the moment so I think when I move them to their own tank I will put just them in on their own for a bit (or perhaps with a few red cherry chrimp) so I can be sure they are the ones eating u...

I have two groups of zebs, a group of 5 captive bred juveniles which I have had since March and I have just purchased a group of 5 large wild caught zebs from Pier Aquatics. I have a couple of que...
