Re: Scr. cauvetti Question
I have had a pair of Scr.cauvetti set up in a 2 1/2 gal tank for about 3 months
now. I have found them to be very shy. I don't get many eggs from them and most
of the ones I get fungus on me. I use much rain water to get my well water to a
ph of around 7.2 and a hardness of around 6gh. Its pretty much what I use for
all my killies. It seems to be fine for most, but I have not had a lot of
success with the cauvetti for some reason. Possibly it may be a better idea to
set them up in a five gal. tank with a lot of plants, etc. and let them spawn
and hatch out naturally. Something I may try if I can find a open five gal.
tank. Good luck,
