Just did about 90% wc and added carbon. One of the hets (chewy) was actually making a stand against the argentea protecting one of the caves. Hope he makes it through the night lol he was chasing the ares away but would allow the other het to stay outside the cave but not inside. Been very interesting watching the dynamics of this tank. Zeus is the boss right now ares is second in the hierarchy and chewy (het) is gaining more confidence every day. The other het is really having trouble. Gets a new scrape every time I see him.

Son wants to name the unnamed het penny im pushing for boba hett

I think you should be OK....gross question, but when they defecate, is it stringy/white? They obviously eat, & look healthy to me.....but they are tiny, & may get whacked even worse by the fish already in there......can you divide a portion of the 150?

I haven't seen them deficate yet no matter how much I feed them. im not worried about dory she doesn't bother dusty at all or the little cats. The only one that concerns me would be dusty, he has never been with other cichlids that were smaller than him.

Moved one of the hets (chewy) into the 150 this morning so far so good dusty gave chase a couple of times but nothing major. Not sure if I am going to sell off the other hett or move him too

the argentea are doing well looked to add on some size too. Probably going to move the remaining het into the 150 would just like to see him poop to make sure there isn't any white stringy stuff. Both hets have some personality they already beg for food












ZEUS becoming one of my favirote fish
