Paradises are awesome. Like little Asian dwarf cichlids.

Re: Photos of my new fish!

Alright bad news, but it's not what you think. When I got home today I found the largest paradise fish on the floor, I was heart broken! So I picked it up and placed it a 5 gallon bucket that had about an inch of water in it and damn near five minutes later, it was moving again. I plopped him back into the tank and he's still hanging in there. I'm sure he'll pass away sooner rather than later. This is a bummer and i can't think of a reason why the most dominate one would jump.

His coloring looks awful, poor guy. I'm so hoping he'll pull through! He's been chilling at the surface for some time now.

I need a tank cover now...

For sure. When i started out, like most, i lost all my hatchets and golden wonder killifish slowly but surely. They would find the smallest gaps around the HOB filter!

Thumbs up

Very cool coloration on them.

The worst defeat in the world, is when you give up.

Re: Photos of my new fish!

Well like i thought, the poor guy didn't last through the night. Everyone else is happy as can be

If you watched the video and saw one of the paradise fish get chased away from the krib, that same paradise fish has made like a game out of trying to sneak up on the kribs hideout lol. After he gets caught, he'll approach slowly from a different angle lol it's cool to watch him.
