So while out yesterday I picked up a small, very tiny female. She swam up to the front of the tank and wiggled at me. I decided I wanted her.
Since she was in a tank with access to other fish, she's in QT. I don't know if she might have parasites, or it's just her.
Currently in about a 1 gal container, temperature is sitting about 72 (heater isn't working properly, it's off or cook, currently off).
Daily 100% changes, using stress coat , or prime when she gets a bit better.
Going to move her to a smaller rubbermaid container that I'm going to float in my sorrority, it's 21 oz, or 600mls. The temperature of the sorority water is 78.
She's eating, quite eager to, I will only feed her 1 pellet at a time, 3 or 4 times throughout the day. Substituting a frozen bloodworm or brine shrimp for one meal. Have seen her poop once, kinda stringy, but red/brownish, so not sure if she's ok there or not.
I have her in with some new java moss, she seems to enjoy it. Figured she could use something to hide in while she's in the smaller QT.
Pic of her, not a good shot of her, she wanted to hide, see if I can get a better one. I want her to grow up a bit before I add her to my sorority.
If anyone has any suggestions about how to keep her QT container from floating all over the tank. Clothespins won't work, there is a lip on the container.
