<< I give them fruit flies and live artemia (adult brine shrimp), it look that
they don't eat fruit flies and just a pair of artemia each fish, is that
normal or they are maybe very stressed from the transport?>>>
They sound stressed. Some killies take awhile to find the flies if
they have never had them and some killies are not wild about brine shrimp.
You might try live baby brine shrimp, chopped up blackworms or tubifex worms,
grindal worms or whiteworms. Mosquito larvae and bloodworms (red mosquito
larvae) are always good, They will eat more when settled. Give them lots of
hiding places and floating plants.
>>>>the crom. bitaeniatum and the fund. filamentosus are mop spawner and the
aph. Hera is bottom peat spawner, is that true?>>>>
Filamentosus is a bottom spawner -- either bottom mops, gravel or peat
moss. Bitaeniatum is a mop spawner. I would use several mops with them that
go from the top of the water all the way to the bottom and then drape across
the bottom a few inches. I don't know about hera.
>>4 galllon without filter are nice for a pair (50% weekly water change)?>>>
That's fine, but I prefer filters.
