Finally bought some frozen food, tried the bloodworm today. It’s amazing how much is actually packed into one cube!

All devoured but don’t think the Bolivian rams were that impressed. And luckily tomorrow is their fast day as some of the rummies have very full tummies!

In other news I have definitely lost at least one other panda Cory but no sign of a corpse. Do the dead fish get scavenged? Or just rot away to nothing?

Water parameters have been consistent.
Beginner. Fluval Roma 240 with Fluval 306 external filter, 300w heater and LED light unit (included with tank). Added Eheim air pump 400.

Water: 1.68 dGh

2 Bolivian Rams
19 Harlequin Rasboras
15 Rummynose Tetras
10 Panda Corydoras
3 Amino shrimp
Mild algae

    They get scavenged (especially if you have shrimp and/or snails).
    Sorry for your loss :(

    I’ve tried all three types of frozen food and the fish seem to like them a lot. They were on offer at [email protected]

    I have been unlucky with floating plants but oh well. Everything else is going swimmingly though.

    Anyway here’s a picture of everyone scrambling for a sinking pellet. The rummynose tetra are by far the greediest fish in the tank. They literally eat everything put in!

    Good to see your fish enjoying their food. They do appreciate variety as much as we do.

    Btw: Is it just me or do Bolivian Rams always seem to have a look of surprise on their faces? ;)

    Ha! I always think they look like grumpy clowns who hate their job!

    Agreed about the food. I also enjoy deciding what’s on the menu and mixing matching all the different food that I’ve bought.

    Also added some fresh garlic to their bloodworm yesterday. Went down well!

    EDIT: I’m having difficulty counting the panda cory - something tells me I have less than my signature these days... 😓
