The Altums are doing great! They are eating flake, frozen brine-shrimp, and freeze-dried blackworms/with spirulina.
There is a lot of chasing going on with one fish. This one is a bit of a bully, but, so far no stress showing from the others getting chased. Treating proactively with Paraguard for possibility of external parasites and the benefit of the acriflavine which works as antibacterial for the rough looking fins. As of yet, these areas look bacterial/fungal free. But, have also been doing daily 50% water changes and adding Vitachem in food to build immunity.
After this, will de-worm. Need to always assume internal parasites with wild cichlids.
Otherwise- all good.
