Well...since last time I posted some things have happened. Not much because my fish don't do much that warrant me sharing.
Last time I wrote Eugeney was sick...and well she passed away a day after I posted that on here. I'm still not sure what was wrong with her. She started breathing heavily, days later she started getting lethargic, I put her in a hospital tank and within the night she'd died. I have a theory it was because of skin cancer just because she had a large black growth on her back that grew as I had her, plus when she died all her colored went away except for this large black spot.
I took her death hard. I've hardly visited BF.com since just because I keep getting reminded of her on here. She was my first girl (technically my second because my parents had already gotten Betty for me.) but ya, know.
The other thing that happened was Steve's filter broke and because it's so cold in my basement the heater wasn't able to heat all areas of the tank without the filter. So therefore Steve has been staying in the empty half of the 10g with Hilda for the past two weeks.
It took a little while for the filter to get here, mainly because when we got it at first it had a large crack throughout it and we had to send it back to Amazon and wait for a replacement. But the filter has now been installed and I'm just waiting on WC day to put Steve back in his home.
I just have to add that Hilda is more manly than Steve is. I was a bit worried about her getting eggy with him in there. However after two days Steve built this cute little quarter sized bubble nest...Hilda built a bubble next that took on most of the surface area on her size. After that Steve let his nest fall into disrepair and no further acts of mating behavior have occurred.
I'm also wondering why my post count has gone from 320 something down to 218?
