    yup, top fish is a male. The females always seem to have that bright dot on the peduncle too.

    what’s a diddy fish?

    this is a tough question as I am constantly annoyed by all my tanks. I finally figured out that I must like being annoyed as I simply refuse to just relax and be happy with them.

    The thing that annoys me most isn’t fish, it’s plants. I hate planted tanks, nevermind that every tank in the house has plants. I still hate them.

    Most annoying fish, the 4 young bristlenoses that were born in my 125 and that I cannot catch to save my life. The tank is going to have to be stripped, for the second time in 6 months, just to get them out. My greatest fear is that one of them will mature enough to mate with the big male and there we’ll go..alll over again. The first time I stripped it to get the majority of the spawn out I swear I had gotten them all, damned if I know where these 4 were hiding but I suspect they hid in the log, that sat out of water for two hours!
    I am not at all entertained by tearing down a planted 125g to the sand.

    Second most annoying, the female swordtail that continues to spit babies out from time to time even though she hasn’t seen a male in 5 months.

    Third, any fish that dies with no visible excuse.

    I like lots of cats but have only kept corydoras and ancistrus so picking a fave is impossible. I have stayed away from the larger or predatory species for the sake of my little fish.

    There is one I love and have though and just cannot seem to keep well.
    Aspidoras Pauciradiatus.

    Love the cute little buggers, found 3 in a petstore once and never found any others. So they hid for months, finally lost two.
    Feeling bad for my one little one I bought 5 from Frank a few months ago. Big mistake….I should have bought 12. I’m finally figuring out that they just do not like life unless there is Lots of them.

    So now I have 4 left. tsk! I’m going to send them away to someone I know who has more, I want them to be happy.

    At a later time, when I’m not on the verge of tearing down tanks I’m going to buy a whole bunch of them and try again.

    They are so cute! Tiny little cats with tiny little whiskers. They also do more mid level swimming then corydoras, they remind me of hummingbirds.

    Hi Malti!

    I call him a veiltail. A very nice VT. I love the color pattern.

    You’ll get some interesting variants crossing with a crowntail I’m sure.

    Good luck!

    hmmm, to feed it you could try collecting aquatic plant material from the beach, that would probably have the bacteria it likes to feed on.

    Of course first you have to find another one.

    good luck Richy! I’m sure they’ll do wonderfully.
    I’ve heard they like french cut green beans really well. Never tried it with mine.

    Mine did like frozen (thawed) peas but I took the skin off first.

    very weird, I confess I would have been shuddering & shrieking while removing it from the tank asap.
    Not good with icky slimey stuff.

    since it came from the beach do you think it would have survived better in a marine tank?

    He’s splendid and huge! How big is his tank?

    yep, this is a little old but since I’m new I can be forgiven right?

    my short answer…..Eternity.

    but I’m not the very best of mom’s when it comes to feeding. My spawn started out in a 5 gallon tank with partial wc’s 3 times a week for the first 6 weeks or so. They primarily ate microworms.
    Then I moved 27 youngsters into a lightly planted 10g. They got a variety of live bbs, microworm and I started them on flake. 50% water changes once a week.
    This resulted in 16 of them disappearing.

    The remaining 11 are now in a 20 long eating yummy high protein flake, frozen bloodworm and frozen bbs. The biggest might be an inch TL and they’re 5-6 mos old.

    eternity….
