Re: Changes to tank
>>If you put 1/2 light gravel in a tank, and 1/2 dark, the fish will
prefer to suspend over the dark gravel. Just an observation. <<
Now you have me curious and I want to try that!! <g>
Someone else pointed out that they loose their color over light colors
and now that I think about it my Sunnies were very pale. Will be
interesting to see if they color up now.
The ones in my 30G have had this same gravel since it was set up and
they have great color. I just never thought about it before.
