      Is this fish safe with small tetras and pencilfish? What is the minimum tank size you recommend?
    • Eddie S. says:

      Unfortunately, one of the other under-discussed after effects of the hormone treatments used to bring out coloration in juvenile fish, regardless of species, is the 'neutering' or 'muling' effect this can have! With most fish species that are sexually dimorphic, it is the males that are most colorful. To bring those colors out early in juveniles, male hormones are used. Needless to say, this can interfere with the normal development of females within the treated group. My opinion is that there are two things going on here, both working against the hobyist that wants to propogate the fish. One is that females, when identified, are held back by the breeder/wholesaler to maintain his stock and the demand for the fish by limiting its breeding possibilities once he sends livestock to market. The other is that young females that are exposed to hormones to increase their appeal and market readiness at an earlier age and smaller size, may be forever ruined as potential breeders by the treatments, and may never show female coloration or have the ability to breed.

      Thank you for your work.
    • Eveline says:

      The salt worked great. I had a few that I bought in a local fishstore that had Scutariella japonica. At first I did not recognized it, until the white wiggly thingies started to develop between the eyes. Thank you so much for this article. Not only informative, but also a great solution for treatment.

      I learned of the Banded Butterfly (C.striatus) aiptasia control from the aquarists at the Cleveland Metro parks Zoo. They were using them in their greehnouse aquarium. Aquarist Nick Zarlinga was who showed me the damage they can do to aiptasia.
