        Sure are, try to do my best, therefore I wonder why sometimes one will still get sick :(
        The Almond Leaf is good for them too apparently.

    PLUS ... Live Brine Shrimp, White Mosquito Larvae also known as glass worms(their fav.), occasionally Black Worms.
    PLUS ... Cucumber, Courgette (Zucchini) etc.

    *NEW FOOD* (March 2013) For the moist food info., check out my post http://www.fishforums.net/index.php?/topic/416102-moist-pelleted-fish-food/

    Occasional prawn or mussel opened up, they love pulling the insides out of one.

    i.e. a variety of foods to keep them stimulated and healthy.

    Also, a Juwel Vision 180 with x2 Ehiem Canister Filters - New Project, see link at bottom :-)

    TIP: I keep a diary of all events in the aquariums, this way I know if anything starts causing an issue what may have been the cause. I can also log if a fish has been behaving oddly and then keep a track of it, plus any action taken for reference. Then, should I need assistance in dealing with a problem, I have a full record of events leading up to it. I also have a spreadsheet I designed for all the aquariums with the test readings (let me know if you would like a copy). I have it printed out and just add the next date and readings into the relevant columns. It helps keeping this all together at the back of the diary.
