week 14 Another video not much changed other then there are so many fry all over the tank... a few trims took place and few frogbits has been removed and sent off.
Any feed back let me know... I also find a ramshon snails while cleaning the filter... No idea where it came from been over a months since anything was added to my tank... The ramshon snails will be left in the tanks since it not a pest and don't breed like mad.
Enjoy.

so it turns out after a read that my fishes love me... how did you work that one you say... well they show affection by rubbing against each other... They rub against me when I'm cleaning the tank... they all come to the front of the tank and follow me when I come home or even from the toilet... From time to time they come to closest side just to check up on me...

I'm joking... but seriously they do all these things...
What you think?

When they rub against each other - isn't that just the male trying to mate? Perhaps your fish are simply "overly-hormonal" :D
Plus, you are the "man with the (food) can", after all. So its in their interest to adore you ;)

Livebearers are so much tamer, in that regard. For all their feistiness, cichlids can be a lot more timid.
And when it comes to plecs, I never trusted myself to handle them with my bare hands. Always used a plastic container to 'herd' them into when I need to remove one from a tank.
As a youngster, though, I had a common plec (I know, I know) who would let me stroke him at water changing time. He just remained very still wherever he happened to be and I could stroke his spiny back.

Livebearers are greedy, always looking for food, sex or, well just food and sex really.
They are one of the easiest groups of fish to catch as they automatically think anything coming close will provide food.
Mine are exactly the same.
I must try putting my feet in the tank - it's got to be cheaper than going to one of those foot spas with garras in the bath. ;) :D

More food and more partners usually keeps them entertained :)

Although starve days force them to really look for morsels anywhere around the tank..
