    I took out the swords. After acclimating again, it looks like for the moment, our favorite GBR isn't nipping at anyone. Going to have to keep a watchful eye on her unfortunately. My gut feeling tells...

    1) The swords are not that large, just a little bit larger than the Mickey Mouse Platys. I've noticed that the Ram suddenly decided to go at everyone...

    Wow... I didn't realize they supposedly get that large. These are supposed to be close to adult size and they are not much larger than the Mickey Mouse, which are about 1.5"-2" maximum in body...

    Skittish Rams? I have found that the Rams will nip at almost anything in the tank. People say this is harmless but I don't believe it. They will chase Cories if they don't want them in a certain...

    Disappointed...

    I've only got a 16 gallon bowfront. I might be able to get a larger tank but it would really be a pain - and it's not like a 20 would make a huge difference. If I changed tanks I'd get a 30, but...

    One more item to note about the addition of salt to your aquarium. If you have catfish, especially cories, adding salt will definitely help with stopping disease almost as much as frying or sauteeing...

    Importance of Air Pumps

    Here is a strange one - my cories keep getting sick after several months. I notice that their barbells shrink (I wonder if it has to do with a PH that refuses to go below 7-7.5) and then they start...

    Thanks but it's definitely not the eco-complete that is causing a problem. I'm also thinking they aren't underfed given the amount of food that is in the tank (perhaps even too much at times.)
