Orange chromide + fig8 update

Post by Blinkey » Mon Feb 01, 2016 7:37 pm

Hi all,

Haven't been on here in a while. I just wanted to give an update on my brackish tank, in particular, its relatively new tankmate; a single orange chromide.
I have had it for just over a month now and he/she has really coloured up nicely from a mix of pellets, algae and frozen foods. Both my puffer and the OC seem to get along fine and only occasionally does the OC get a little bossy and flare up at the puff, but there is never physical aggression. The puffer couldn't care less and just goes about its usual activity :)

Unfortunately I can only see half of your pictures but the tail on your Chromide looks very nice :D

Good to know that they get along well, I have asked an LFS around here to try to get one in for me, the problem is that I asked around Christmas time and they don't seem to be able to find any! Good job I'm patient..... :rant:

Strange, it appears fine on my screen. I'll upload smaller pics. I reduced their size by 60%, should be fine now. Please let me know if they're not though.
