seem to be the best eaters and most neutral - never starting fights or drama - they look good too!

my farmie ocels follow me while i’m in the tank cleaning being nosy... they are the most aggressive towards other fish -

Updates -

Good - Fogo will somehow be the biggest soon - surpassing the others in growth

Azul , Tems , Intermedia , Xingu - all healthy eating pellets waiting for their next home to be ready - (1-2 weeks)

Bad -

First two pinima i got - the deformed one and now the infected one are fairly shy and worried looking -

the replacement (for the deformed one i got) unit is growing out in a 40g solo and is eating tilapia but nothing else...

got a 1 eyed / blind 12” female mono living in a 75g qt tank solo with no real direction for her as she’s not really taking food - gotten a course of kanaplex / general cure - the cure seemed to stop her eye from worsening

main tank is getting UV / Filtration upgrade - hope this cures my sickness issues -

That one with the bumb on his head reminds me of a book my kids used to request about a chihuaha that was always talking about his head being to big for his body:ROFL:.bass.jpeg

Love all your bass and other tank mates. But your tanks look so clean. You must clean that gravel all the time.
" Out standing.". 👍👍

well,

sadly it looks that pristine pinima rod sent me to replace gimpy bumped his head in the 40g breeder overnight vs vampire pleco attack (things an arse) and is dead...

left with gimpy and mr worried -

female mono on the mend, but may be blind....

- not ate in 2-3 weeks even put some dithers in there - think she killed but did not eat them - not sure which direction she’s headed -

main tank (11)
getting general cure bath / feeding kanaplex every other day today was second dose of general cure

uv coming online hopefully wednesday. got the aqua maxx running on there -

biggest oldest ocellaris in there currently has the eye thing going - unknown pathogen....

hopefully wednesday will be the turning point for the bass in the 625g

dr exum dr exum what type of filtration are you running? I have found over the years if there is a good amount of detritus forming in the sump, gravel, or canister filter it can cause some serious health issues in p bass. This is one of my reasons for no gravel if I could add a drip system to my tanks I would definitely have some sort of substrate.
