Fahaka arrived

Post by NJD » Mon Jul 09, 2018 8:45 am

Hi,

Finally went to the LFS to pick up my Fahaka. I've included pics below of his tank and a pic of him.

At the moment he looks a bit lost in that tank however he seems to be loving it (I guess it's like a palace to him compared to the LFS tank!). Can't wait to see him grow!.

I introduced him yesterday. I saw him eat some brine shrimp in the store and he ate that well. He's now swimming around the tank and attacking anything that looks even vaguely like a snail!!

I am going to order some frozen snails and so I have a constantly supply of them (defrosting them before feeding!). Although he's small I think if I crush them a bit he will manage. I will also try jumbo shrimp/white fish fillets cut into small pieces.

I have a spare 180L tank at the moment so may use that to try breed red cherry shrimp (and gutload these) and also snails.

Once he's eating well and I can spot his fave food, I'll use a de-wormer in the next week or two just in case.

Thanks.

Congrats! I hope he gives you a lifetime of entertainment. Mine lived 19 years.

Thanks PP! I think he's already grown.
