    Here are a few pics of my new EBJD. I got him on Thursday and he didnt eat and was timid and hiding a lot until today, when I added some internal parasite tonic, aquarium salt and upped the temp to 28C. Then after a few hours he seemed to find a new lease of life, started eating and becoming more active, swimming around and chasing his own reflection! I got the parasite stuff cos he had the dreaded white stringy poo, which he still has but it is now turning brown. So, fingers crossed.

    Let me know what you think. He's only about 1.5-2". I have called him G for now, because of the black "G" on his face. I think he is quite a nice specimen.
