Olympia, we had some losses this summer. One of the leopard geckos went blind and refused to eat. Both of our pacman frogs got mysterious illnesses and passed away. It was heartbreaking.

The crested gecko is doing wonderful. His name is Lil Bit now.





Top half is his recovery picture, bottom half is how he came to me.







As you can see, he's regained his sticky pads and is eating and climbing all day long! Still rather thin, only 20-22 grams or so, but getting more active and stronger every day.

Sorry about the gecko and the frogs. Reptiles are so mysterious.

But YAY Lil Bit! I remember you were saying his sticky pads may never recover!

Got my floating plants in the mail today! frogbit, azolla, duckweed, asian water grass, also hornwort (floating because that's all i found on how to grow it), more java moss, and some naja grass? i like the frogbit, it's pretty :)

ALSO i picked up a couple of swordtail females (one called Buttercup, idk about the other one...i got video! i'll put it up soon xD), and an ADF named Frogger to go with Zeddie :) Zeddie just checked him out, then went off to do his own thing!

Also, Gaebora is looking pretty good. last night it definitely looked like there was fuzz that had come off in his salt water bath. Also he seems to be pooping okay, and i think he's eating too. Very happy fish momma :)

My rainbows had babies! I put the rainbows in a small eclipse tank....as a holding tank until their big tank is ready. Went to check on them today and this is what I found!
Now I'm completely lost on what to do? I read they will care for the fry. I just gotta find out what they need, I guess.
