Milo's new friends :)

http://i45.tinypic.com/vr6kxi.jpg
He's camera shy, but you can see his three new tankmates, red GloFish (I asked for Neon Tetras, but whatevs, they're cool too.) So far the only "aggression" he's shown is chasing after them and wandering off after about a half-second. He doesn't flare up, so I think he's just entertaining himself ^^ And they get along at feeding time, though yesterday he got a bit confused and I think didn't get all his pellets, so went after the flake food instead.

But yerp, they all seem to be getting along :) He gives them looks, but doesn't flare up or attack.

And edit, the tank water is a lot cleaner than it looks! The blue of my wall combined with the camera flash gave it that icky-ish colour. And if you look pretty careful near the filter and heater, you can see Milo's fins. And ughh, I can't get the top suction cup on my new heater to stick.

I like the look of some of those "glofish" but I refuse to pay like $6 for a neon colored danio, lol. I would try moving the suction cups a little closer to eachother. I had issues with mine sticking, and once I moved them closer together it finally stuck :)

:D thanks~ I finally got another live plant, and I think it adds a lot to the tank.

And I was a bit miffed at spending so much for glowy fish, but I got all three for six bucks. I think the manager liked me, he was really friendly :)

Elaina - Thanks, I'll try that :)

Update if you're intersted: one of the GloFish apparently starved to death despite getting plenty of food (I guess it just didn't come up to get any ): I isolated it and sprinkled some food on top of the water but when I came back a while after it was dead. Oh welll.), so I went and got a Tiger Platy and a Chinese Algae Eater. They all get along nicely, though Milo sometimes chases after the Platy, but gives up after a few seconds, almost like he's just kidding.

You should return the Chinese Algae Eater, they get very big and aggressive.
