(1)I took some photos for you all. I figured he was just getting used to the tank at first. But he is still hiding and almost looks like he is hopeless. He is showing a lot of signs of anxiety and shyness. He is definitely a male. But she will sneak up on him and he will bend his tail and slowly sneak backward away from her and then he will get chased ALL AROUND the tank until he hides under that little pottery looking ornament. Then she starts chasing my other fish. She may be pissed because she is pregnant?
(2)I will change the feeding pattern. I have been limiting them to two times a day and small amounts. The weird part about the PH level is that if you scroll up a bit on this forum you will see the colors that I got using my test kit. It is a pink color and according to the test strip it means that it is above 8. That is why I am adding PH DOWN. The fish are doing okay and so are the babies. But according to the strip the PH is super high and that is what I have been told by a few people.
(3)I posted a few photos with this post. Did a water change a few days ago. I will do another next week.
There are definitely some hiding spots. Near the heater is where he will hang out most of the time. It seems to be "the spot" for my fish. They like to hang out on the right side of my tank by the fake plants and heater. He will even hide behind the baby fry box net. I also have an Upside Down Catfish in there that hides behind the heater day in and day out until the light turns off or unless there is scrap food around.
(4)P.S. I added a photo of my baby white molly dalmatian in its net with the head of my sword tail. I did this to compare sizes. Is it safe to let the baby free now or should I let it grow a bit more?
