Baby “Azul” eating tilapia and bloodworms - lfs stated they treated them - (skeptical )

Fogo -

eating tilapia seem to be together today - vs opposite sides of the 125g

Moved the fogo over to free up tank space for tank shuffle - added more wood and plants for cover - after they are acquainted i’ll remove it again...

used l014 as cover he’s a bull in a china shop.... created quite a ruckus going in... took the attention of my nosy ocellaris

seem to be same size as the smaller Kel’s -

i’d imagine they will surpass them in growth as they are better eaters 🥳

Chugging along-

got the three Azul out of QT - dumped them in a 120g of fish soup -

it’s primarily supposed to be for my Crassipinnis - however he/she chooses to live the loach lifestyle and wedge itself behind the filter.... so roomates 🤷‍♂️

3 baby azul eating anything i put in there fry food wise - must say getting them small seems to be much easier on the food training....

fogo doing good - even getting a little snippy with the larger bass -

the broko are the best eaters -

both kelberi finally eating tilapia-

got everyone off krill (now only once per week as treat)

id imagine new systems will come online by December -

on the lookout for these guys -

3 - xingu
3 - pinima
3 - intermedia

i’d like tems but don’t need that big of a fish 😂

Cheers All!
