Re: need ogoense 80/24 feeding tips
Thanks for the reply.

I checked the water conditions in their bag and matched it pretty
closely with my own. They don't seem to be gasping at the surface, more
like they're hanging there waiting for something juicy to drop in. I
checked for velvet (thanks for that tip), and see no blurring of color
or color changes at this time. No signs of ich, either (thank goodness).
I plan to do a 50% water change today and add a bigger hunk of java moss
(more aufwachs in the water to tempt them) and see if that helps. What
about water temps? If they are suffering osmotic shock (although I think
I got the water to match pretty closely), would adding salt to the water
help? If so, at what concentration?
I currently have two pairs of A. ogoense pyrophore Kimono Yellow (bought
them at the Exclusively Killies show in Indiana in mid-April) and they
adjusted much more easily than these fish. They also seemed to be less
flighty and jumpy, so I wonder if this is something peculiar to this
species/location or just to these particular fish.
Thanks for your tips and help!
sunny today in Ohio (but that will change....)
