  1. Hey guys 3 days ago I noticed a white mark on the side of one of my small Bala sharks. it has gotten considerably worse and. Ow his dorsal fin has a red hue all other fish in tank are fine all water parameters are normal. No introduced fish for 2 months. Heater is in sump. wierd one thanks Bryan
  2. I’ve been watching them closely eating over the past few days. They seem to only take the micro wafers that fall in the water column. They don’t graze the bottom like the other species. what other foods should I offer? done water tests again. Perf ct.
  3. Only a mild dose of white spot about a month ago. Fish were all purchased through the two most reputable Northside fish stores as well
  4. Thanks guy, very hard to get good pics they are very active! just fed micro wafers and pea & prawn and they ate what was there as well as the rest of the fish
  5. That’s a red rainbowfish. I’ve kept fish for over 30 years, I realise they gotta eat. they are fed morning and night. Hi Kari mini wafers hikari wafers and algae. Also fed pea and prawn mix live black worms and frozen bloodworm. everything else has grown at normal rates Angela and loaches have tripled in size. ill try get some clearer pics tonight
  6. Hey I bought these little guys around 3 months ago. They don’t seem to have put any size at all and are kinda bent like a banana. Tank is well cycled 600lts. All other fish purchased around the same time are fit and healthy. Is this normal for sharks? It’s been 10plus years since I’ve kept them but I thought they grew rapidly
