Pepere Posted June 2, 2022 Share Posted June 2, 2022 I received more than a few hitchhiker quests in my initial plant orders. I am patiently working at eliminating some, tolerating others, and actively worked to protect at least 1 during tank cycling. I opted not to bleach dip the plants as I was hoping they would help seed nitrifying bacteria. If I had to do it all over, I would bleach dip them before planting and buy Dr. Tims One and Only at the start. In any event, this little fella arrives as a tiny little fry I only noticed about a week after planting…. And I had the tank dosed up with Ammonia Chloride the whole time with stubbornly slow cycling. I immediately did a water change ad kept dosing Fritz complete and daily water changes to spare him as much as I could. He or she has grown a fair bit. I am guessing a feeder guppy. I named it Nigellus. NigellusNot the most popular name on the list, Nigellus is certainly original. It is often given to a boy. The name means “winning person, overcomer, conqueror,” and comes from Irish origins. If it is a Guppy, I am hoping it is a male. hoping someone can positively identify species and or sex. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
