    You will get it all straightened out. I'm sure it is so frustrating and I'm sorry you are dealing with it, but you will get through this and come out all the better.

    Got a good water change in but forgot to dose with Levamisole So I'll be dosing tonight instead.

    This is after the WC. My BN thinks there should be food in his feeding area, so I got some good shots of him. Also his poo is obviously ok as well, when he swishes along the substrate, the pieces I missed in the DW cracks go flying, and pls remember this is a dirted tank. I'm feeling defensive because I just finished a good siphoning!

    But anyways, can anyone see anything I can't? What do you think?

    It is evident that you take excellent care of your tanks.

    Your BNP is such the handsome fella. Love his markings! He is fun to watch.

    Thanks for checking it out Rivers :) I love him too! I think you need a bushynose pleco one day lol!

    He is still clamping his fins, wish I could figure out what the problem is.

    You're right about that, I probably do need one, someday. Perhaps a female that might not hide so much.
    I too hope you determine why he is still clamping. Best wishes to you.

    Yeah, the male's bristlenose is quite impressive, and my young albino male is out all the time looking for nums. My granddaddy BN pleco hides a lot, so possibly with age they hide more, but I attribute that to the fact that he's probably guarding eggs and babies ~75% of the time.

    This guy only started to get a bit sketchy since all this parasite trouble in the QT tank. Also, he is getting older now....

    Females are so beautiful too, I have a huge brown female in my 90g. I have two females, but grandma is just massive for a BN pleco. I think she might be bigger than granddaddy now! I love their sweet faces :)

    Ok, competed another Levamisole treatment. Pleco is still clamping, everyone else looks the same.

    One thing I'd like to mention, it's these kerri tetras are very personable. Maybe personable is the wrong word, but they are not shy and repeatedly bite at freckles on my arm lol. They are always at the top begging like angelfish, whereas the gold tetras bolt into the java fern when I approach the tank. They'll come out for food eventually when movement stops, but I've never seen a tetra hide like these. I really like the QT tank setup, I find it looks so natural, and the gold tetras really compliment that look well. I just can't believe the contrast between these two species of tetra.

    My LFS for some regular kerri tetras in (I asked for them back in October) and I really want to get some "safe" ones because of their friendly behaviour, I just don't feel ready yet to deal with new fish. Hopefully that feeling will change soon!
