Something Fishy: Fish Fact Sheet

Apologies for the onslaught of fish posts. We’re very excited about our new additions and have been spending a lot of time worrying about their well-being. Our five strawberry rasboras are doing well, especially after the addition of some extra foliage and a tank rearrangement. The current our filter puts out is almost too strong for these diminutive fish, so I’ve been working to correct that. With the addition of a large Amazon Sword and some creative rearranging, they seem to be less tossed around.

The new arrangement is also serving to hide the necessary electronics (heater and filter) and give the tank a more natural look. (I know the blue rock isn’t natural in the slightest, but I just love it.)  We also picked up some bloodworms to supplement their diet with, as my research indicates they’re micro-predators.

In being true to my nature, I went and got all nerdy by making a fish fact sheet.  As we add to our tanks, I’ll add to the sheets and put them in a binder. My hope is that this tank will not only be great entertainment, but also a portal for education. Want to be a fish nerd, too?
