I loved my rummies. They definitely like big groups and have a good effect since they stay together better than most tetra.

I showed hubby a picture of the rummies and his reaction was "WHOA! Looks like someone just gave the fish blunt force trauma!" xD

Haha, it's very easy to tell when they are upset with you, their little noses are like mood rings. I had 5 and they were constantly upset till I got 9.

Do they change color? xD
Or do they just get even brighter?

Hey guys I'm spending time with the boyfriend, but I found this and wanted to show you. I'm like 99% sure it isn't real, since it looks like an edited version of my old german blue ram, but I still thought it was cool!!!

Mostly just the brightness of their nose changes.

Had, I heard that cichlids like that are often injected (or maybe just put in water) with hormones to make them brighter for show.

It's sad when people alter fish unnaturally. Like the glowing tetras. I'm sure it has affects on their health and possibly happiness.


hhhmmm....so does this mean if their noses are bright bright red, their unhappy? Usually when fish are brightly colored they're happy.

No, the red goes away when they are upset, and increases when they are happy, even more in breeding condition.

Hmm, so day one. Washed my mouth out with soap. Feels... Like you'd expect. But clean. Will take a few weeks before I can say anything about it (since I'm a huge skeptic xD). But having read about what fluoride toothpastes do to you, I'm hoping for positive results.
As a face wash, think my skin feels a bit softer than after using my expensive scrub from Lush, but only time will tell. I have cysts occasionally, and I have one now, so I'm a toughie with skin. xD

oh good xD
I found a few people selling schools of rummies and black cherry barbs. So it'll be a matter of choosing which one when the money comes xD
