New Tank Setup
Okay, finally got my 90g up and running, cycled awhile ago, added livestock on Wednesday and then added the plants on Friday.
I have as far as Livestock -
2 Discus (1 Blue Checkboard Male,1 Red Pigeon Female)
12 Neon Tetra
8 Harlequinn Rasbora
8 Juli Cory Catfish
1 Nio Regrea Pleco, Might be wrong spelling here
1 Male Betta
4 Amanaco Shrimp
2 Painted Swordtails
2 Electric Blue Rams
Lots of different plants.
Everything has been doing good, been checking the parameters, 7.4 PH, 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite, 10-20 Nitrates. Was a little concerned that the PH was going to be to high for the Rams and Discus, but I acclimated them as best I could, didn't rush it. They seem to be doing fine, Except
The blue checkerboard discus, I can't get him to eat, I've tried everything, flakes, freeze dried bloodworms (hard to get them down to him), Frozen brine shrimp (tried this one multiple ways). Gets right in front of him and he wont' touch it. Everyone else, including the other discus and the 2 rams are eating (they won't go to the top, but if it floats around them, which I make sure of, they will eat)
Most of the time he'll stay by the 2 sides of the tank where he can see himself and just float there. Lately he's been moving around the tank more and more, but still won't eat, and now he's darkened up pretty good. VERY dark blue, almost black. Don't know what to do with him.
I even did a 50% water change on Friday, plus cleaning right before I planted (this tank is really tall so I had to get water out to plant).
Then redid my API tests, all my levels are good.
