New Fish

I put a bunch of new fish in the aquarium today.

One of the fish that I added was some sort of long finned tetera whose name already escapes me (pictured to the right).

I also added a bleeding heart tetera pictured below. You can kind of see the red spot on it that gives it, its name.

When adding fish to an aquarium it is not unusual to have conflict between the new arrivals and the existing residents. Today was particularly bad. Within five minutes one of the rabrorsas that I added was gutted by one of the gouramis, ironically the one that had so recentley been a victim of bullying. The other rarborsa is now hiding behind the heater.

I also added a silver hatchet fish, which unfortunately I have yet to take a good picture of
