Hi All, it is a rainy day in Columbus, Ohio. It will soon become snow again.
So, it has been a good killie day. Time for water changes, etc. Anyway, I was
reading past JAKA articles about Nothos and have come up with a few
questions: I have heard and read about RAC eggs dissolving in peat. Is that a
common Notho problem, or is it specific to RAC? The addition of bicarbonate
to the peat and salt to the water--is that the silver bullet? The pair that
I just aquired, last week, are doing really well. I am nervous about changing
water today due to the history of the fish with other specialist. I have
noticed that the pair is behaving really well together-no damage,etc. I dont
want to do something stupid. So, if anyone can offer a little advice, please
feel free. I have gone over the articles by Treat and Nunziata for a start.
I probably should have started with something easier, but I just had to jump
at the recent opportunity given by NOKA and Dr, Watters. It was actually
rachovii that really got me interested in killies, years ago--cover of
Aqurium Digest, original copy. So, I finally have them. I tried some eggs
,last year, but the fry only lived for about a week and a half. I had the
propper foods, clean water, etc. I have no idea why they did not make it.
Anyway, if you guys want to string along, I'll be here again later. Mark
