These are my wildcaught multies...yeah. Wink

Unfortunally the female you see died like a week ago. I think the male killed her since she was all torn up. Water was fine, and it was out of the ordinary...meaning there was no sign that she was sick or getting old.

Very nice photos, very nice text! I wish everyone who contributed made things that easy for me! Wink

I'm beginning to work on converting the gallery section into the new site layout and as soon as that's done (500+ pages!) I'll start adding new species.

No problem. Smile I finished fixing some small errors I saw and now I think it's done.

EDIT! The male jumped the tank 8/27/04 during the night. I guess the storms really freaked him out... I found him lying on the floor behind the tank. Crying or Very sad

I'd like to nitpick just one small part of this otherwise lovely profile:

Quote:
These little fish love to dig; and you should do your best to prevent disturbing their home since it stresses them out.


While multis put on sand or smallish gravel certainly will dig up a storm, that doesn't mean they love it - after all, I do laundry quite often, but it's not because I enjoy it! Indeed, there's good evidence to suggest that the excessive digging multis do, often removing all of the substrate from around a chosen shell, is more likely proof that they don't want the sand there.

In the wild, multis live on shellpiles, often as much as twenty feet deep. There's no substrate of any kind available, other than mud-caked algae growing between the shells, and this model (maybe without the mud Wink) is what we should encourage people to replicate in home aquaria: as you said, as many shells as possible, ideally dozens (I strongly recommend escargot shells, personally: cheap, available, and the safest shape, with a round opening and loose coils). Substrate should be minimal or even non-existant; instead, layering the shellpiles on top of slate or a siliconed single layer of sand on the bottom of the tank keep the bare glass from spooking the fish or uglifying the tank without forcing the multis to dig, dig, dig everything away from their shells to get what they really want.

Thanks for considering this change! Smile

Done. That larger pic you linked to is pretty impressive, considering how small these fish are. Thanks!
