Bekah, gratz! oh sounds like they like you, and hope you like them, could be a fun place to work
Sakura uck worms, i looked them up.. I dont mine hospital tanks, in fact its actually nice cause i can inspect them, one on one.. i miss that with my girls.. My challenge is the water consuption. Its tuff to go get water everyday in my old truck. If i had running water, oh man i would have walls of fish now.
My little girl can wiggle her tail, and bends it to the side to sit on her leaf. She can swimm really fast if she wants, i dont know if it hurts her or not. Id like to put her back with the others, to free up this tank to grow plants etc in.. Maybe put georgie back in it!
Georgie is so funny to look at. his tail looks like a girls crowntail, lol with a couple long long spikes.. and he goes around flaring. Yesterday, it wasnt till evening till he perked up, he was very tired from the fight.
Just a bit ago while feeding them the young cellephane flew into his side and the fight was on.. i really dont think much of this divider... I dont understand how there is space at the edges, the mesh is curved a little youd think it would meet the glass.
those square, 1 gallon tubs, at walmart, they are the store brand on the isle with the food containers... at my store they are above the others on the top shelf. You get 2 i think. You can see through them .. but they arent clear they work really well for the qt, easy to cup the fish to do wc.
How did they all get sick? I mean you have several diff things going on? the worms come from crustations? the pinecone, cant be helped. the cotton mouth? Thats a lot of stress..
Those algae wafers? the ones i tried.. were the small ones, it just fell to the bottom and no one ate it.. i took it out at the end of the day. I tried a gain, when snail was on the betta leaf? i broke off a little piece and put next to him.. looked like he was eating it, but i dont really think so.. I tried blanched lettuce too, no go.. i dont know what the heck to feed them
OHOH my girl/boy? he flared really really big and his tail was cupped! lol he was mad, lol but i got to see his tail .. but it was over quickly and he moved on.
The female partner to above? her tail is grown back to about 3/4, i cannot believe how fast they can regenerate!!!! I wish i could grow my hair like that.. well, not longer but more of it o.O
