I know that the one female has stress stripes, but it is just a reaction to me. One morning I was standing (stupidly) with the lid up watching them eat. She got enthusiastic and jumped out. I managed to save her, but ever since she stripes up every time I get near the tank.
Is the mess bad or am I being OCD?

My phone doesn't want to load the video, lol, but when I had a girl jump out at feeding time, I put her back in and she was fine. I have another girl who just stripes up sometimes. She might be a little freaked out still but she should be okay, as long as she's acting/swimming just fine.

As far as mess goes, you just need to test the water regularly and make sure there's no ammonia or nitrites ever.

Glad to know I'm not the only one. I was fresh out of bed and all "durr" when it happened lol. I have the API master test kit, and the water checks out fine. I have a big tank, plenty of filtration, and it is underpopulated along with regular water changes. Maybe I should just try the root tabs and see if that helps. The tank gets indirect sunlight, but that cannot be helped with my present house. I'm sure it contributes to the algae growth.

Gorgeous girls!

I have khuli loaches and cories, and my sand looks exactly like that.

Life.
