I'm going to Cancun. I've been there a number of times, but its been two years. We will be going down the cost a few of days to xcaret and some new place I've never visited. I'm hoping I can find some freshwater to play in too. I'd like to see some familiar fish down their, but its not like there are many surface streams or rivers. Cenotes make fish finding a lot more difficult
. Marine kinda intimidates me, IDK whats safe to chase fish-wise, except the diff between skates and rays
. I also took a Japanese language class last semester and I forgot most of the spanish I learned in High school. I'm hoping it comes back and I don't screw up too royally with mixing spanish and japanese together.
There are 2 caecilians in that tank, both around 2 ft long. They don't bother the fish, because they are naturally blind and rely on scent. As adults they are pretty lazy and prefer to scavenge rather than hunt. They do hunt worms and similar things, but little darty fish are out of their league. I'm sure they can sense the larger fish, but I don't think they see them as a food source. The fish show typical "prey" behavior when first added, but most all settle into normal behavior. Once they figure out they are not going to get eaten. Most fish prefer some space between themselves and the caecilians, only exception has been panda garras. My old garras had a obsession with the caecilians and IDK why. Heres
a old video of this tank a year ago, before it crashed. Being blind the caecilians were scared at first by the garras touching them. I have 6 garras now, but they have yet to meet the caecilians.
