Here's the tank 3 days after adding the first 5 Harlequin rasboras.
2 of them are very nicely coloured, quite reddish all over the body. One of them is the biggest fish and one the smallest.
Other 3 are more orangy-grayish on the body. All are eating well, swimming around, but one of these three looks like a mood swinger. It would separate from the group and look really pale, then if I feed them it gets the triangle nice and dark again only to change it in a matter of minutes back to pale etc. etc. They do chase eachother around... Is this just stress or what
Also I noticed they have reddish gills, but I'm not sure if it's just how they are? I found a pic of the same looking rasbora here http://www.google.si/imgres?imgurl=h...w=1405&bih=651
but it does not mention it being poisoned or anything.
We'll probably take a trip abroad after I failed to find the chain sword plant in any of the stores here, hopfully finding it there.
Also, I'll be away next week for 4 days, which means noone will be doing the water tests that time. Do you think adding another 2 rasboras before I go would be too risky? That would mean adding 2 rasboras a week after the initial 5 rasboras, should the water stay OK for the next 3 days. Or maybe adding 1
and then another 1-2 next weekend etc.
p.s. yes the water is treated with Tetra Aqua Safe before adding it to the tank on water change.
