Hi have a tank already running - 2m x 0.6 x 0.6 just started it up from october - had water from ushaka in and introduced first lot of fish in three weeks ago - 1 x threadfin butterfly, 1 x kleineye butterfly, 1 x damsel, 1 x surgeon, 1 x coral banded shrimp (and 1 x picture wrasse but he is missing already) still new to hobby so learning - will appreciate any help can get - thanx
stand is no problem as it was about 3/4m high of the ground and i cut the legs to go undercounter - in fact this tank was bought in 1987 a lady in Hiberdene South Coast by my dad and he kept up this hobby till 1993 then sold the tank to a chinese dude and i managed to buy the tank back from him in 2007 so i dont think the stank will give way as built then and it still stood the test time literally!
In the first pic i wonder if u see the damsel in the background - he seems to b too restless in the tank - i caught him bout 4 weeks ago and the rest of the fish i bought but they were all intrduced at the same time but he is a gremlin - fighting with the others especially the kleineye in the same pic - now the kleineye seems to losing his colour so 2morrow i have to try and get the damsel out coz i going to durbs this coming weekend - rather he go back to where he came then some predator can stalk him like hoe is terrorising the other fish (just kidding) but i think he has to go - what do u guys think?
Hi can n e 1 identify this damsel - gaboon thinks i shouldnt get rid of him what do the rest of u guys say? he seems to be causing grief to the other fish! Also i feed these fish once a day can n e 1 offer sum advise on feeding - i am using peeled shrimp/prawn/mussel from our Pick 'n Pay supermarket and a frozen cubed product called marine mix from the pet shop - another problem is my temp is sitting at 27' celcius with no heaters - look like i have to invest in an air con to cool the room the tank is in - i am getting worried as the colours are not right on the fish and they are in the tank for over a month - but i dont know if it is coz of the big bully damsel - salinity is right - check the colour on this little damsel :
