"What works for me is making my tank as much like a pond as possible...Please don't mistake this as a lack of filtration but the opposite. I have 3 h.o.b. filters (aquaclear I think) on my 29 gallon Goldhead tank. I haven't changed the filters in that thing for 5 months, I just keep solid waste to a minimum with quick siphon use and top off using prime dechlor. I think the key is regularity. 1 or 2 gallons removed from my tank using a siphon and then replaced isn't a 30% water change, throw the rules out the window....These fish appreciate stability and will reciprocate that appreciation to you in the form of fry. Sad Compressiceps won't breed. I feed Tetra Jumbo Krill (broken in half while dry) and mysis shrimp and occasional live brine treat. New life spectrum is a great first food to offer also. THESE FISH ARE FAR FROM DELICATE!! I often hold them out of water for 45 seconds at a time for accurate sexing. I STRONGLY agree with the other fella or lady about the Conch Shells....VERY IMPORTANT!! I wanted to show in this post that comps and calvus are actually very easy fish to care for and of all the comps. I've had and have, none have died from a mysterious illness or disappeared. Thank you for your time"
