    Borneo Sucker Feeding

    I'm sure you're right, I hadn't even thought about them being too young/small to eat the bloodworm :) Anyhow, I hope you manage to get them to eat something Gilroy!

    Ah, I see. I haven't seen where Gilroy mentioned how old they are, just that he has had them in his tank for a few weeks. My mistake.

    It might be worth reading this: https://www.fishkeepingworld.com/bloodworms/ Most bloodworms are actually insect larvae.

    Fish abuser...

    I agree that human beings can be capable of unbelievable acts of cruelty towards living things. If we were animals that would make it less appalling as we expect certain animals to attack each other. However, we are not animals! We are made in the image of God. Made to reason, think and feel in...

    First Betta from LFS - fin rot!!?

    Just a quick update on Blaze (as he has now been christened). I am astonished at how much of his fins were missing! All the clear/white areas are new growth. He seems very happy, gets on well with his tank mates and enjoys eating from my hand and generally being very curious about anything that...

    First Betta from LFS - fin rot!!?

    I do have a 2.5g tank which is cycled (and has a heater/air stone/lighting/plants) which I use for quarantine when necessary. I could put him in there if I see any signs of aggression or stress. Thanks again.

    First Betta from LFS - fin rot!!?

    Hello and thank you for the advice and welcome. I think I will keep him and nurse him back to health as best as I can. Is it likely that his fins will return to their natural shape and size given the right care and attention? I will be having words with the fish shop though; not only for selling...

    First Betta from LFS - fin rot!!?

    Hello I would really appreciate some advice. I bought my first Betta from my LFS as my son picked it out to replace one of his fish that wasn't suitable for our tank. I asked advice from the store assistant about suitable tank mates and parameters and was happy that my tank would be a suitable...
