Very high chance of going to Pet smart tomorrow.

And after talking to my mom....Pudge is a high possibility! :D

I shall spam pictures like crazy if i do get him tomorrow.

I currently have everything ready except the tank. But Pudge will stay in the 1 gallon until the tank is done cycling :3

That's great! Wish I could have another one. :/

Don't worry, the time will come :)

I've spent about $60 so far just preparing for Pudge, sometimes I wonder if its worth it all.....
But he's going to be loving with me so I can't just say no....

This will now be a journal for Buddha AND Pudge!
August 9th

Time Spent with Buddha: 6 months/1 week/ 6 days
Time spent with Pudge: 3 days

So far, everything has been going very well in the tank. Thanks to the double dividers, its nearly impossible for either fish to see each other. The filter is quiet and doesn't create a hazard for the fish.

I noticed that Buddha prefers the top of the tank whereas Pudge likes to scour the bottom. I call him a catfish on occassions because all he does is eat food off the ground. He waits for his flakes to fall (or purposely makes them fall), and then vacuums the food up.

His coloring is changing ever so slightly. His "pale face" is starting to get a bit darker, almost like a copper color. I'd be worrying, but the rest of his body is a metallic color, and the copper is only on the bottom of his face.
Buddha, is well, Buddha xD

Bth of them have been making a habit of flaring non stop when I put the tank light on. Pudge is a natural flarer I guess, he just won't stop anyways. But to see Buddha flaring so much is abnormal. Well I guess the light will have to be turned off earlier.

And here are some pics of the guys <3


Buddha (Buddha's divider is blue and Pudge's is purple. It's interesting how it worked out xD)



Pudge flaring (again)


Pudge in his log


Pudge's first bubble nest!


I'm not joking when I say I am in love with my boys. Both are very special to me, and I'm glad that Pudge is feeling happy in his new home. :)

((I am absolutely in LOVE with the white on both Buddha's and Pudge's ventrals. I am also head over heels for Pudge's spotted head xD))

Well Buddha has been in his hospital tank for the past two days, and I think he misses his old tank. He's been swimming around with his tail open (more open than it was in the 5 gallon) and definitely looks a LOT happier (is flaring again as well).

If he prefers the old tank, and if my school allows more than one tank, I will keep him in there. i don't want to make Buddha unhappy, unless its absolutely necessary...

So if that does happen, I just might have to buy fish #3 to go with Pudge.....
Especially since I already have the tank divided.

It will be a veiltail since my LPS by college only sells veiltails. But dear, I hope all goes well...

Are you sure he likes it better? (O.<) Well, it's almost the same size since he lived in a divided tank. And it's 2.5 gallons, and then it's only a .5 gallon difference. He's probably happy because Pudge is not there. They can sense each other since their ears sense vibration.

That could be it... I mean, in his tank now it's just him and the whole tank is his. With the other, he has the filter and Pudge, so it might be too much for him....
