So Brevis are coming saturday! (decided on them over occies today, temprement issues won!) and i am a little stuck as to what i should do re the tank. It was set up for multies so was packed with escargot shells. Now that brevis are gonna be there instead i know i dont need as many shells, also i have odered some bigger shells today plus getting a couple on saturday with the fish too.
So i know i should take some of the escargot shells out. Thought id leave a few in for them to poke around in and maybe for fry, and then put the bigger shells in. Also gonna add a wee bit more coral sand as i know they like to dig a bit more than multies.
Now.... as for my question, Spike (the julie) has set himself up home right in the middle of the tank! My fault i spose for setting one of three caves up there but still. So he is well happy. My question is am i righ to assume that making two seperate territories either side of the central cave would be ok for the brevis? Should i also seperate the terriotories by a rock barricade so the middle of the tank is spikes and either flank is the brevis?
Would this work or am i looking at a war? looking at the original picture any suggestions as to best way to move things round or is my brevis flanks idea a goer? ideally spike would have set up camp down one end so brevis could have the other! Of course my fish wants the middle!
