Greetings from Cheshire!

Post by alevans »

I have just got into Zebras! I guess I picked a bad day to give up the glue sniffing (LoL!!).

Anyway jokes aside what beautiful creatures they are, if only they would be a little less secretive! I have 3 in a well oxygenated planted 180l tank.

Would I be right in thinking that they predominately eat at night?

Seasons Greetings to one and all

My 4 eat mostly at night too. I try feeding during "day light" but they don't seem too interested although I am sure that if I cut down on the night time feeds that could all change.

Welcome to the forum, hope you find it helpful.

Lay off the glue sniffing and stick with the zebras, much more healthy well maybe not for your wallet. :lol:

My lot also do most of their eating at night, day time feeds are mostly ignored.

Thanks for the welcome and solvent advice!

Sadly one zebra didn't make it through the night on Thursday :(

No obvious reason for the death but I guess it must be very stressful for them.

The other two seem healthy and have minor territorial scraps! Hopefully it won't turn into a full scale war! Afterall the have 180 litres to play in and several caves.

Regards

Hi Al

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear about you losing one of the zebras this early on, unfortunately htey don't seem to acclimatise to captivity very well when wild caught. Are they wild caught fish?

Hope you find the forum useful.

Yes they were wild caught, and sadly I'm down to one now. The other one succumbing to the almost inevitible whitespot. Hopefully I can kill the blasted paracites!

Fingers crossed everyone!

Thanks!

Hi Al
Wahst the temp of your tank?.............if its 82 or under..get it up sharpish.aim for 86,which the zeb will handle easily..this in turn will speed up the "cycle" of the whitespot ,and terminate it...........oh and welcome to the board. http://www.scottishdiscus.com
