ok so now its my turn. i have a 55 gal with 4 o's all under 4in in length and 2 plecos aprox the same size. im running 2 aquatech power filters 30-60 and i have a 200 watt heater and try to keep a constant temp of around 80 (it seems they like this best). i did a gravel sweep and a 25% water change 2 days ago. and noticed today that the feces of one of my o's looks kinda weird. i have recently moved and have yet to replace my test kit. so tomorrow im going to take in a water sample so i will get back with the paramiters on that. description.. long. in kind of mucousy looking something. up till now it has always looked very similar to the pellets i feed them does anyone know what the problem might be or what might be going on. any input would be greatly apprieciated.great site by the way thanks
i have 5 oscars total. and i consider myself lucky then dont rearange too much they do have one particular plant they insisted on moving all the time.so i just added a little more gravel to that spot lucky it was in the corner and just burried it deep as i could. and that stoped them from moving it. i also give them toys to take there agression out on. i offer pingpong balls. there cheep and as we all know they float. keeps them busy for hours. and my plants stay in place
im new here so bare with me. i have seen some neat ideas on caves and one of the neatest i have seen is severl pieces of slate of diffrent shapes and sizes glued together with sealer. to make a cave by gluing them you insure your self that none of your babies that like to rearange daily as mine do get hurt. takes some time and a little creativity but in the end it well pays off.
