  1. This morning, I boxed all my Okefenokee Pygmy Sunfish, making their 20 gal tall cool-water tank available. Now, at work, my Florida Flagfish have been terrorizing my Rainbow Shiners, preventing them from spawning. So! I caught the Flagfish... And brought them home to their new room... Beforehand, I changed water in my Rainbow Shiner tank... And enjoyed seeing them happy again... And I did check the “Java box” for Flagfish fry, but nothing visible... So! Flaggies have a love suite... Shiners have freedom to fire up again... and here’s to hoping the Okefenokee Pygmy Sunfish live happily ever after!
  2. Yes, they pulled a lot of the moss apart, as well, but they picked the staghorn algae clean off of the whole tank, leaving plants intact. It took them less than 24 hours to eat every speck of staghorn, which is usually too tough and fibrous for other algae eaters to want to bother with. The moss will grow back, and quite honestly I have more than enough to replace what was eaten or pulled off the wood. People like to say that flagfish are nippy and aggressive, but that is only the case with the males. A group of 3 female flagfish makes an excellent algae management system and they are not territorial like the males are. A group of them will hang out together and they won't usually bother other fish. They're nothing fancy, just a plain little brown and green fish, but they are very active swimmers and they are fun to watch. I wish I had more pictures of the whole tank before I put them in, there was staghorn all over the place... Now it's sparkling clean!
