I have a new 20 gallon set up. I have a 2+ year old White CLoud remaining from my previous tank and have since added two more White Clouds and a red-tailed shark.
Does anyone know how often White clouds will lay eggs? When I got my new White Clouds I had purchased three and one died by the next day. A second looked to be dying as it was swimming funny and having to work extra hard to get down from the top of the tank, so I assumed this was a diseased bunch. It turned out the second has a deformed tailfin.
I thought the third had dropsy at first because it was so fat and seem to have a really hard time getting further down than the top of the tank and this went on for a couple days. When I finally decided freezer way the way to go as to not get anyone else infected, I went to the tank and the silly thing was skinny again...Over the next week the fish had gotten a little plump a couple of times but then would go back to normal size again. Well two weeks later the bugger is fat as I don't know what again.
I set the new tank up on 12/29 2006 and changed the water for the first time last night and afterwards I sat on a small stool and checked everyone out. To my surprise I have three babies. At first I thought it was just a reflection because I saw a little blue sparkle dart and then disappear. All you can see is the little eyes refelcting blue.
I just added a couple of plants last week and the tempature is set at 75. Should she be laying eggs this often?
