Too many dorsal fins to be a minnow, so some sort of blue-eye still has to be the best guess. Maybe a sub-adult female? With that prominent lateral stripe fading as she matures?
They are getting the pretty darn close in the fish section. Leaning towards a bluefin killi, but it just doesn't have much color, the caudal fin looks off, and mine seems to have both a dorsal and adipose fin.http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...81#post5060881
I love your tank! its a lot like mine
what are your params?
what do you dose and how often?
your needle leaf java fern looks great! i should really switch my regular java fern to needle leaf
Thanks buddha. I haven't tested anything other than TDS in this tank for a couple years. TDS is 115 -140 depending on how recently I did a water change. I don't dose nutrients other than fish/shrimp food but I probably should because I get some algae and growth isn't that healthy. There are some bits of Jobe's Fern sticks way down in the substrate.
I yanked all the needle java fern a couple months ago to see if I can get the bolbitis and anubias going instead. There was just way too much of it. Part of me regrets it because it was the focal point of the tank.
The mystery fish vaguely reminds me of a Madagascar Rainbow, though I'm not sure quite how likely that is. Regardless, it's a pretty fish with a very beautiful home!
Thanks Danielle. When I compare it to pics of the Mad. Rainbow I can see similarities but just not a match.
I'm working on getting the plants in this tank healthy again. When the bulb burned out on my fixture a few months ago I opted to buy a Finnex Fugeray instead of another T5HO bulb. The plants are recovering nicely and I'm really impressed with the Fugeray.
I'm going to add a traditional air powered sponge filter in preparation for turning this in to a shrimp (Cherry and Amano) only tank. The shrimp game is calling.
