All my tanks having SERIOUSLY valuable and rare fish in them I make it a MUST to quarantine all my new fish.

I have a 90cm "hospital" tank that has been running for over a year now that I use to medicate and sick fish.
When I get a new fish, they go straight into this tank for a good few weeks.

I let them settle then look for all signs of illness.
Any WC Bichirs I automatically treat for parasites, even if they show no immediate signs.

Better to be safe than sorry I say!

Bro coldblood, does your endy attack your rays ?
My ray died due to my endy taking a few huge chunks out of it.

There are a few different localities of Endli.
Then there are CB Endlies that can vary MASSIVELY in size, shape, color, temperment etc.

Yes, while spoonheads are not "rare", they are not as common.
