Mahnertis in QT

I picked up my schistura. mahnerti (5 of them) today from the LFS.

I could feel them pummeling the bag all the way home. Once I got them settled in the QT I dropped in a little treat of bloodworms. Let's just say the response was quite dramatic. I've seen a loach feeding frenzy before, but nothing like this. A big chunk of bloodworms had dropped to the bottom of the tank, all I could see was three writhing fish bodies attacking it. Wow. :-)

They are quite active.

I have the tank set up so it is where I can see it from my bed. When I lay down the little buggers all line up in the tank and watch me!
