Re: Jack Dempsey strange behaviour. #2
I decided to go for two plastic plants that attach to the tank sides via suckers. I attached them just above the substrate where they go up the sides and create an overhanging canopy on the surface creating some shade. Another plus is that I dont get a snail problem.

Re: Jack Dempsey strange behaviour. #3
Just a thought, should I reduce the light in the aquarium?Its what came with the set up! I was thinking of using colour diffusers for the flourescent tubes or even a Blackwater additive.

Re: Jack Dempsey strange behaviour. #10
My mistake I did get the Nitrite and Nitrate mixed up! Its just the two fish in there at the moment.

I was looking to introduce a tank mate but if he`s going to be aggresive then perhaps not.

I am using test strips, I thought these were ok? There are so many test kits out there I would`nt know where to start. That was my reason for getting test strips.

I`ll try to post a pic later if I can find my camera.

Len.
