    Default Altums from John

    Receives 10 a week ago from John (snookn21). They looked so good that I went back immediately and got 10 more

    I got quite a few inquiries after posting these videos on YouTube. This is a very, very good batch (nice work John!). For people on the fence, jump quick!

    As to acclimation - my tap is quite soft so I didn't use RO. Just tap and Prime, plus some almond leaves. Temp is at 84F since there has been no sign of bacterial infection. I do have a UV in the tank, but other than that, I haven't done anything special. They are eating prepared foods only (flakes and FD black worms from Al). One established sponge filter and 75% water changes every other day. They were more sensitive to water changes in the beginning but have since got used to it.

    Minutes after I put them into the tank. Giving me the butt treatment.

    Peter, these look very good. Fingers crossed that they continue to do well. I remember people saying that the really small ones seem to acclimate better. That probably goes for most cichlids, actually. Keep us posted on their progress.
