My 2 WC adult L046

Post by Fern » Thu Dec 02, 2010 1:29 am

I'm dripping them now so they can go in with the 3 younger guys in the 30g. The male (?) is 3" and the female (?) is about 2.5"

So they do look like male and female? I'm 99% sure they are but not 100%
I've had these 2 about a year and a half.

They are doing quite nicely in with the 3 2" F1's. I am actually able to see them more! That makes me very happy!
The tank is pretty basic, its a 30g with some silica sand and 2 proper caves, one on each end, in the middle area there are some clay pot bits for nice little alcoves along with a few of the plastic decor that had the appropriate cervices for them. There are 2 decent sized bits of wood in there as well. They all seem a bit happier in there.

Thank you guys so much for all the compliments!!
I know they are a little on the fat side but I like to keep all of my fish very well fed with a good varied diet :D

Very nice pics of some very nice fish. I found that once I turned off my tank lights and just had lights from the room on, my zebras have become much more visible. Now I only turn on the tank lights when I am working on the tank. Good luck.

They are in a 30g under a 45g, that end of my fish room is fairly dark, I only have a select few tanks with actual lights on them and my planted tanks are all close to the large open window in my fish room.
Now that I put the 3 F1's in with them is see tails more often, rarely are they fully out though..... The male does stick his nose out when I walk into the room from time to time though.
