Sorry guys things have been crazy around here, the fish have settled in they refuse to eat anything but bloodworms and I had a small ammonia spike in the tank :S I added more media from my Oscar tank so hopefully I have that taken care of but its been very nerve racking.... here is a video and some pics I took of them today

They look amazing Ken.

Don't worry about the bloodworm thing, mine only ate them for the longest time, but I've gotten them to the point where they'll eat peas, and tetra tropical crisps.

Just make sure you don't overfeed like I did the other day :blink:

I love the blue to, Ya they seemed to have settled in they still freak out when I feed them or do syphon out uneaten food. They seemed a little stressed before I did a 50% wc but that's to be understood with the slight ammonia reading

Yea, mine cower during water changes still, don't think they ever outgrow that lol.

Glad you're enjoying them, they'll bring you many good years I'm sure.

As nerve racking as it is I'm loving them I just can't stop looking at them, I just worry to much about screwing something up :S I just have to remind myself that I do know what I'm doing and I have a community of great knowledgeable people that are just a post away B)

You'll be alright Ken, I have complete faith in you. I think you'll soon find they're not as fragile as you think. But I definitely can understand the paranoia, as they're probably the most expensive fish you've gotten, I know I'd hate to lose that investment :D
