I kept mono's in my fishroom before, but not for many years. Yesterday, I came across a deal in my local fish store that I could not pass up. I bought 12 small mono's for a very low price. They are about the size of a quarter dollar coin and all appear healthy and active. I'm now in the process of moving some other fish out of a 125 gallon aquarium and rearranging it to suit the mono's. I'll keep them in freshwater for now - my well water is very hard (12 dGH) with a pH of 7.8-8.0. I'm considering adding a large group of mollies for dither fish, and maybe some small synodontis cats for clean up. I'll probably plant part of the tank moderately heavy with vallisneria which will hold up well to the mono's nibbling and even to the addition of low salt levels later on. Today I fed the mono's some raw boiled zucchini and later some live brine shrimp - already they are VERY eager eaters and their schooling behaviors are delightful! I'm looking forward to watching these guys grow and thrive in their dedicated system and hopefully will enjoy several years of their presence and activity in my home.

    NIce picture:) Well, the rule of thumb is to not handle them for 48 to 72 hours after feeding, depending on the size of the prey. Basically if you can still see a lump, then wait longer. Biting is from one of two things, either there is food around or the snake is feeling threatened. I would guess the second one. It's in a brand new environment, is young (babies tend to bite more than adults), and doesn't really know you yet. So be patient and gentle and you should be fine.
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-06-06
    These are even better pictures to see your beautiful snow corn snake. And yeah, it sounds like he's still a bit nervous. But they adapt pretty quickly, as you are finding out:)
  • Tony Osty Wilds - 2013-06-06
    Thanxs for that I got to handle it last night it tryed to bite me but I waited until she tunred around . Once in my hand it was ok , it was squeezing my fingers quit hard is this normal or was it it felt threatened
  • Callum Ryan - 2014-08-19
    The squeezing is normal they are just trying to hold on. Think about it like you're a tree for them and that your fingers and other body parts and like branches so they just want to feel safe. :)

Ted MacRae - 2013-11-16
I just got an OBT - a little over 3' from tip of right front to tip of left back leg and stocky so I presume a still juvenile female. I have her in a 10G aquarium with 4-6' of shredded coconut husk for bedding and a Y-shaped cork round leading down into the bedding for a natural hide. She stays in my office, which is typical office heating during the winter and cooling during the summer. The lights are on when I am there and off when I am not. Should I add any supplemental lighting or heat? Perhaps a day/night light? Specific recommendations would be greatly appreciated. She is VERY skittish to vibration or touch but not approach; I am really looking forward to watching her over the next several years (hopefully).

    Here is a photo of her.

    Wow, she's a real pretty little lady!
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-11-17
    It sounds like a good environment temperature-wise. I'm thinking the office temperature is so regulated itself, that it may not change significantly and so you may not need any black/red night lighting. What a fascinating creature you get to watch:)

    thanks david Just crossing my fingers do i need to increase my plantations or any particular food. also is white light ok for the plantations and boesemani rainbow.
  • David Brough - 2014-10-11
    It shouldn't take more than a day or two I would think.
  • David Brough - 2014-10-12
    Id think that more plants are better, but keep a portion of the aquarium for swimming. Live foods or freeze dried protein food like shrimp would help. The idea is to make them feel very comfortable and happy to develop the full colors. Beautiful fish!
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-10-12
    Boeseman's Rainbowfish are one of the most dynamic color changing fish. They change color with mood and will display the best colors while spawning. Young fish and females will be always be the least colorful, while an adult male, about 4.5 "(14 cm), will show the most color. The best ways to bring out their coloring is with a well planted aquarium that's kept maintained (frequent water changes) and given a varied diet that contains live food plenty of live food, like brine shrimp and insect larvae. Lighting can be used to highlight their coloring, some aquarists even use spotlights.

I have 2 featherfins in a 55 gallon tank with a few zebra danios, glow-fin tetras, black tetras, and 2 golden algae eaters. They all get along just fine. I did have the same problems others mentioned with neon tetras disappearing, but only with neons. Featherfins just like the taste of neons apparently. The best way to introduce new fish to your tank with the territorial featherfins is to rearrange the tank. Move the plants and rocks around at the same time that you add the new fish. The confusion makes them think they are in a new area (which has the new fish), and the territory is no longer theirs. It has worked great for me for all fish except the neons. Just don't add neons to a tank with featherfins and you should be okay.

    I've actually been able to keep neons with featherfins successfully. I currently have 6 neons in my 55 gallon aquarium with 2 featherfins. But they were raised with many small fish which included 5 neons in my old 20 gallon aquarium. They usually don't get too aggressive towards bottom dwellers, but from time to time will spar with each other around the tank. But I have had 3 out of 7 kuli loaches die lately, but I don't know if it was from them or old age, but I hope you have greater luck with smaller fish with the guys!

    My featherfin ate 14 fresh shrimp in two days. Every weekend I would buy at least 10 and couldn't figure out where they were going. I owned it for a year before he ever came out of his cave so I call it Houdini, it had tripled in size when he finally showed up. It gets against the highest center piece and just hovers in a perfect vertical 90 and lets the bubbles go up his belly. Very enjoyable now that I see it, very playful with my 7' placo, they are like bff's, inseperable.

    A deficiency of vitamins B12 can cause paralysis of the legs. The suggestions I've found to fix the problem say to give this vitamin to the turtle orally. Also provide a supplementary calcium and trace amounts of copper sulphate. Any pet store that carries reptiles will have vitamin supplements for herptiles.

    Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. There are no specifics - just what can be asked and what canbe negotiated.
