Rummy-Nose As Dithers.

I'm hopeful that the Rummy-Nose Tetras (27) in my 80 will continue to stay healthy. I had two that came down with some sort of weird disorder (with 1-3 strange white spots on them -- not ich). So far, the others have stayed healthy.

I had difficulty in this tank with fish being frightened and "clunking" their little heads against rocks and the sides of the aquarium itself (12 Corys, 3 Flag-Tailed Porthole Cats). I traded in these fish and went with Rummy-nose. I'm glad I did.

Besides being a great-looking fish, the Rummy-nose welcome the sight of someone approaching the tank. They school more rapidly, and dash together to areas of the tank they think has food (they associate someone coming toward the tank as feeding time).
