How are the 7 'zebras' settling in ? Was looking at them the other day, the prices for these species really vary a lot from what I can see!

Class Kelly What size of a tank have you them in , What type of filters are in the tank and do you do alot of water changes ,do you adjust the ph etc ? Just curious to know how difficult they are to keep . thumbs up

At the minute they are in a 2x1x1 with sponge filter and fluval plus 3. Daily water changes do do anything to alter the ph. Feeding with Tetra Prima, bloodworm and Lobster eggs.

I find them easy enough to look after, i don't treat them with kid gloves just leave them to it to be honest. I keep an ammonia alert in the tank and just check it daily with the other tanks

Honestly easier than I thought they would be to keep, i find just don't molly cuddle them because they are expensive i'd found a few that over cared for them ran into problems.
