jcrabbit Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 (edited) Hi everyone, I spent the last year of keeping neocaridina in a 5 gallon tank. This year, I got a 40-gallon tank with the intention of keeping fish. I started by adding plants and waiting until they are thriving and growing new leafs. I also waited until I had gone through the brown algae phase. Last weekend, I got ten emerald eye rasboras from a LFS and put them into my quarantine tank. My quarantine tank is simply a sponge filter in a 10-gallon tank, with some slate from my backyard for shelter. I keep the entire tank shielded from light for most of the day (Not in complete darkness, however). The fish have been very shy. They might swim around the bottom of the tank. When I remove the covers to see if they look healthy or not, I sometimes find them hiding under the slate shelter I've made for them. I'm not surprised that they'd be shy. I am, however, worried that they might not be eating. I'd break up flake food into tiny pieces and let them float. However, I'm not sure if the fish are eating. I guess I'm not sure if I should be doing anything different. My plan is to keep the same routine: Clean the tank of any debris and do a water change daily (unfortunately I forgot to clean the slates before adding them to my tank, so the water got a bit cloudy); Feed them three times a day; and keep the tank dark so they'd feel more secure. I'd love to hear if there's anything else I should be watching out for. Thanks, everyone! Edited January 31 by jcrabbit Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
