Fish in the coal mine?


Recommended Posts

This was one reason I got rummies and I did notice the red faded while they were in quarantine.  Now that they’re in the main tank, they have nice red noses.  That said, they’re just fun to watch dash from side to side.  The smaller dwarf neon rainbows think they’re pretty cool, too, as they are almost always schooling with the rummies.

My single guppy actually schools with my rummynose.  I have noticed when I first turn the light on their noses aren’t the brightest.  Few minutes and they colour up right away.  This I assumed is natural though.

My "canaries" aren't fish,  but snails.  Red Racer Nerites to be exact.  My experience has been that Nerites are particularly picky about water quality and oxygenation.  If I see them "parked" at or above the waterline,  I know it's time to get out the test strips to see what is going on.  Unfortunately,  Nerites can prolifically lay eggs around a tank that are extremely difficult to remove,  so my early warning system comes with some downside.

I love my rummynose tetras. They are by far my favorite tetra, with cardinals a distant second.
