|Subject: Adding new peppermints, Help!? Mon Jun 24, 2013 6:59 am|| |
So I've been reading a lot about peppermint bristlenose in my anticipation to actually buy 2 this coming saturday, and have gathered that they can be quite shy. What's the best way to get them to feel really comfortable and eventually pretty brave? I'm getting them at 3cm long and have a coconut cave as well as a large piece of gold vine driftwood and live plants. Should I add them with the lights off and let them settle in a bit? Or would adding them with the lights on be likely to make them feel used to those surroundings, and more likely to come out during the day.... Thanks heaps and sorry for all the questions! I'm very excited
