Well It was all peacful since I moved the Killis into the smaller tank

Now this morning I have noticed all the 4 peacock Gobys hanging around the coconut shell and nipping the fins of the male and female cockatoo.

Do apistos have nothing about them or what? The male is 2-3 times bigger than the peacocks and is just letting them nip the fins when they get close! Youd of thought the Cockatoo would knack em! lol.

Well guess I will have to go back to the Hollybush with the peacocks! Grrrrr damn tanks! some so called community fish are not community fish!! Maybe its my Cockatoos are just an easy target with being a slow mover and big fins.

get an oxygen testing kit GD. Since getting one I have realised thata my tank has been constantly O" depleted - despite doing all the supposedly right things - filter agitating the water, bubbles on for a few hours every day etc.

In the less than 24hrs I have had the venturi thingy going all the time, the plants have perked up considerably!
