I has a new channa baby :drool: thanks Dave for the great price & excellant packaging :good: I love him, he's very cute in a lovely grumpy looking way. Looking forward to watching him grow.

Sorry, no piccies today as the kids have taken all my batteries for their wii remotes :angry: but he's still in hiding anyway, will try to get some nice ones tomorrow.

My cute little ornate channa babies have shown a totally different side to themselves this week as well, boy can they fight! They seem really placid during the day, but in the evening they totally go for it, one of them came off very badly after a fight two nights ago, he has a little hole in his head, right between the eyes, the skin lifts when he swims :blink: but he doesnt seem to suffer much for it & looks like he won the prime piece of slate he was after!

Have added some melafix for him & am keeping a close eye. They are funny at lights out as well, they all hide in the floating plants at the surface & just race at each other with their mouths open, the top of the water looks like it is boiling & when they hit each other they jump out of the water & plop back in again.

would it be ok if i moved my snake heads from the tank that they are in (elite 147) into a juwel 180 ?
i want the smaller tank for some other fish i have and as water changes dont need to be done regularly on there tank the algae starts to build up and look a bit unsightly *new tank will be in my bedroom*

tank will have a play sand substrate (or if need be i can take the gravel that they have now)
the fluval 204 filter that they have now
most of the plants etc

any tips on moving them? i dont even know how to net them :/ ( is it just as i normally would) and what about re-acclimatising them to the new tank?

thanks in advance for any help offered :)
