Looking forward to see how it all develops, good to hear the fish are eating and settling so quick.Went out to look for fish. Well more to catch some. Easier said than done with a hand net.
I did manage to get several candidia barbata, Taiwan Horse Mouth (Direct translation of Mandarin name).
Not exactly what I was wanting to get as they are on the larger side but I will see what happens with them for a while as they are good at alerting water quality issues and apparently are used as a biological indicator species.
The flow of the tank is not nearly as much as I thought it would be and the fish look very comfortable swimming around. The guppies were put in a few days earlier to test water and help the new fish settle and overcome any skittish behavior.
Within about 5 mins of adding the fish to the tank, they were going after flake food and following the lead of the guppies.
The shrimp, of which there were 4, 3 small one medium, seem quite aggressive and will chase fish near their "turf". I will watch and see what happens there.
There were a few hitchhikers in the rocks and sand that are now coming out. I have not been able to identify any but will keep looking.
Some pics of them acclimating:
