new additions in the new 30 gal.

i just bought a pair of kribensis about a week ago, and just last night as i was turing off the lights i saw the male "fastly" brushing up against the ground and on the drift wood, everyone else seems fine though. does this sound familiar?

Welcome to the forum, PartyInMyFishTank! Glad you decided to join us! It sounds to me like the beginning of ich. Very treatable and pretty common when introducing new fish. Here's a link that may prove helpful. I've dealt with it twice.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

The ich parasite has 3 stages- First the freeswimming stage finds a fish, and burrows in, and begins eating its flesh.

When it's had a nice meal (a couple days at normal temps) then it goes to the surface of the fish and makes a "spot" that's actually a cyst.

After a few more days, the cyst falls off. Then, finally, from 300 to 1000 new baby parasites hatch and look for a fish to feed off of.

Could very well be the early stages... Watch carefully over the next week for spots.
