Olympia my lady shrimp is looking rather large, hiding in the moss, and fanning her belly alot!

Also, I need someone to read this to me. I hear my instructors voice and I wanna cry.

PS the last chapter has a warning about being dangerous to your mental health. No lie. I'll copy the exact wording when I can access this on something other than my phone.

Oh, woops forgot to mention that, yes they do fan their bellies more!

I noticed one of my girl is loaded with white eggs, so fairly recent still. Wonder if any of these ones will survive.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Well cultivating worms and selling them is good money. If I had a place to do it I would, lots and lots of farmers use them.

If the eggs are dark it can only be a few days away.

I've got a big tub full of wild caught {rod and reel} sunfish {Bluegill,redear and warmouth} also a few buffalo heads and creek chubs that say different. Probably 50-60 fish in there and they eat nothing but pellets. They have since the day I caught em..which was probably the end of April. Every now and then I'll give em left over fishing bait like bees moth or red worms. But they eat pellets fine.

I dno, rope fish rarely if ever adapt to a pellet diet. They're my biggest concern. Bichir, not so much. Knife fish, so and so.
