    First batch of Ocellatus fry growing quickly and already becoming A-holes

    Please excuse the hair algae, it came on one thing and has taken off. I left it as I planned to take down the tank then found fry

    I have a bristle nose that periodically cleans the algae off the snail shells. It’s quite amusing to watch the shellies attacking a fish at least 5x bigger than themselves

    I'm trying endlers with my ocellatus and brevis so far so good. I find that endlers love pecking at algae.

    This is amazing! Well done! Hopefully the A-holes dont attack each other until you can re-house them hehehe.

    I'm glad it's working for you! I wouldn't trust my pair with any tank mates, I've seen what they do to inanimate objects

    Hi, I've been looking for shell dwellers for years without any success. If you ever want to sell some please let me know.

    Hi, shame I'm sorry to hear that! I'll advertise when they are ready, as I battle to keep track of who wants what.
