Maybe there is still hope for me yet then!I really can’t remember finding one on the floor and I have kept open tanks for a long time...
Does anyone have experience of keeping them in larger groups? Does this make them any more confident/active in the day?I have always kept 4-5 of them in my main tanks
you could not fill up fully (leave 5cm) so they can swim around madly for a bit without you worrying, then a few hours later add the final water top-up. If I got them new again I might also keep the water a bit lower for the first few weeks so they can get used to the tank.
Good tips from you both, will bear these in mind for my future set upYou can make little corner covers, little triangular shaped plastic or glass pieces, that sit on top of the corners and surprisingly stop quite a lot of leaps for freedom
I'm not sure if there are a few different subspecies, I bought 4 and was lucky to see them once a month. I saw them recently in a nice scaped tank at my LFS, I commented on the fact they were nice to see and he said had over 20 in a small tank.
