PostSubject: I HAVE FISH!!   Wed Oct 22, 2008 9:12 pm

I thought this deserved a post all of its own.

I HAVE FISH!! yay yay fish fish yay yay

I got them yesterday and kept the lights off all day to let them settle in in peace. I soooo wanted to turn the lights on and have a proper look at them!

Swimming round my tank at the minute are

2 bristlenose plecs - they are so small and cute and spend most of the time sitting on the piece of bogwood I bought at the same time.

6 Zebra Danios - I was lucky getting them because they only had 6 of them so I bought them all.

6 Neon Tetras - I like these and they seem really happy in the tank now.

6 Cherry Barbs - I dont know if they are boys or girls but the man at the shop said I will be able to tell when they are a bit bigger.

I didnt gget any kribensis or zebra loach because the shop didnt have any. I might add them later but for now I am quite happy with what I have got and the fish seem to have plenty of space to swim about. Very Happy

Lovely mix of fish, evie. Good for you. Very Happy

Re: the cherry barbs. They'll colour up as they get older with the males being bright red/orange and the females a duller brown. Another way to tell is to look at the horizontal stripe on the side. In the females it's solid, in the males it's more dotted. I wish I'd known this info at the time as I ended up with all males...Rolling Eyes
