    my brand new, nearly $6.00 catfish died.
    i am dog tired now, i need my nap, so i will have to go all the way back to the pet store, for a refund/replacement catfish, tomorrow.

    he/she was acting strange it's first night...at first he/she would settle at the bottom and do nothing...
    later in the early evening, he/she would zip all across the tank....

    i had noticed that this fish seemed to be "sleeping" a lot, rather than to be moving around.(it was not dead, i could see that it was breathing)

    damn this sucks...again, ALL chemical levels are near if not perfect....
    but, it ain't like i had a new fish not die before.......it's just aggravating, i gotta make yet another trip to the store.

    while there, i may look around and see if they have those floating/sinking plastic fish....

    i may have to re-consider this hobby.

    ah...4 full days of crystal clear water.....

    all levels are as near perfect as possible. i had bought a bottle of "ammonia remover", and it works great.

    i think however, my 2 guppies are bullies..

    they chase around one of the mickey mouse platy's....

    then all of a sudden, that fish will turn around and chase them...

    then a reversal....lol

    when the second platy comes out of hiding, and swims with the other, the guppies back off the 2 of them..it's like WTF dude, you gotta have a body guard now...???


    lol


    my cory catfish, just occasionally goes spastic, like a house cat will....

    and tends to sleep a lot...like a house cat does...lol

    ok, so i now have 2 cory catfish..they have barbs to help locate thier food, as they scavenge the bottom of the tank..to have those barbs and gravel (it is said, on one website) can harm them as the barbs can get cut on that gravel, and they can get an infection and die.......so sand should be used.

    on another website, another expert said, he never saw or noticed anything hurting the catfish..

    so screw it, i bought the sand..i had to slowly scoop out the gravel, then vacuum the tank, add water, and add the chemicals.

    the tank is a bit cloudy right now, when it clears up, i'll post a pic.

    i did not remove all the grave, i left some in a corner for the plant and for the filter pick up tube to rest on, also, both catfish seem to like hiding/sleeping under a plant leaf, on the gravel...

    the "kid" at the pet store, showed me the sand he uses in his tank(s)........

    if you ever want expert advice on how to do things, consult a 5 year old.... @Stimpy ....knows about 5 year old experts too...!!!!

    ok, some of the cloudiness has cleared.

    as you can see, i kept some of the blue gravel for just the plant to stay in place.

    it was all smooth, and now i can see "pock marks" from the fish poking holes in the sand...

    the catfish hide under a leaf, in the gravel area....
