My maintenance account buddy showed up at the house this evening to surprise me with 2of my favorite fish, banjo cats from the Seattle Fish Store. Each are under 3in. I have been sick since Saturday so this really brightened my day. 95E116DC-4487-4AD6-AD64-7AB7053D9681.jpeg2C86BEE5-D2FB-4935-A7CF-18D378DA1CDE.jpeg

I have just lost 5 of the 9 T musaicus (mini orca). Their fins are all gone. 3 that are still alive have really tattered fins so I have moved one of them to a different tank.B1346BD0-A54B-4B3D-B784-03CD037F76B4.jpeg

pH of 8 or 8.2 seems kind of high for the driftwoods, no? What happened? Do you know or still troubleshooting?

I started a thread on it. Long time member on planet catfish thought my auto water change % could be a little high. Nothing definite though.

Fairly certain that all 3 T intermedia have crammed themselves inside.

I rescued three Dwarf Anchor Moth catfish (Erethistes jerdoni) from my maintenance account. They were housed with angels, acaras and geos. These were gifted to him. I have them in a 2.5g full of java moss by themselves. The other positive is that I now have a way of disposing of my excess micro worms.
Yes, they are full grown at 25mm. 6F193651-C6B6-4E5B-8F34-51AD107AE60F.jpeg

Improved the anchor cats tank with a sand bottom and matten filter.8F4FEE81-B813-4E86-A630-CC1C5504201F.jpeg867B5E4B-54EF-4E69-9010-DDCC192F5C94.jpeg

Do not, I repeat, do not try catching Akysis prashadi catfish by hand. Got a nice little stab and injection from one of mine for trying. Hurts like crazy. Fish measures ~5in TL.824BCCCF-354B-4E98-AD01-2F5299662EAC.jpeg
