  • Despite being listed as 'easy' I do not find them so at all. I bought three locally and all three were dead within three days - one from some kind of intestinal blockage, the other two from bacterial infections. I then bought four from LA, and put them into my QT with Nitrofuracin green powder. NGP is reputed to be an effective med to ease acclimation and good for the mouth infections these fish are infamous for. Three of the fish from LA did well right from the start, the fourth got a mouth infection but the NGP cured it. All four fish were in the 3 to 3 1/2 inch range, and all four made it to my display. Once you get them past the first few weeks they are very hardy. Try the NGP; I got it from national fish pharmaceuticals.
