We've been having troubles with the neon tetras in the 65 gallon tank. They are sick. at first it looked like a body fungus as the dorsal fins would get a white fuzz on them then the fish got sick and started behaving erratically, having troubles staying upright, as if they had a swim bladder problem, they would swim off on their own away from the group and hover as if sleeping, but much more twitchy than when they sleep, and soon after the sick fish always died.
We've been separating the sick ones to try to minimize the spread, and treating both the main tank and the quarantine bucket with Tetra/Jungle Lifeguard (it is sold under the Tetra brand in some places and Jungle brand in others) but it is not helping. At the time I'm writing this we've lost 6 of 10 tetras. We bought them in groups of 5 from 2 different shops. As cliche as it might sound I think now that our Neon Tetras are dying of Neon Tetra disease (a parasite) and that is why the medication is not working.…
The Crystal Red Shrimp have a good old-fashioned German tanenbaum christmas tree hung upside down in their tank.
Bill has some nice little snowflake lights around the outside of this tank and some gift boxes that it seems he just can't wait to see opened.
...and we've hung up a stocking for him.
no decorations on the Blue Velvet tank yet, but they are busy. Last count at a feeding time a few days ago there were nearly a dozen berried mommy shrimp in there. They are expecting quite a few new years babies. :)
I guess it's been a little while since I last showed my Blue Velvet tank.
They are doing really well. 8 months in and the colony has really grown from the original 10 despite a few deaths and a few giveaways.
Check out this video and see how well they are all getting on, lots of mommy shrimp in there and You'll even spot some of my red headed blues. :)
