u defintely have some new fin growth going on there with your red one, good job! the tanks look great. one day when I hit the lotto ima redo all of sushi's stuff but hes seems content for now, hes a pretty spoiled little guy considering mama's budget and all his other "siblings" lol
Thank you and he definitely does--I've been monitoring him for a while and every day there's a teensy bit more.
I totally understand the budget thing too: I'm going on one because between the fishfaces and the cats and my having to reduce my hours at work... yeah, they're all going to have to live with being a little less spoiled.
And that said: I may have gone into Petco today with the intention of researching the price of hermit crab supplies. I came home with Balthazar instead. *faceplam* Like pringles, these little fish are. But given I am now at capacity, well, no more fish will be residing in my apartment; we're maxed out on space.
I wanted to set up the 5 gallon, but I had less space on my dresser than I thought I did. There is some finagling I could do, but instead I set up my 3 gallon KK with a heater and a 3i whisper filter, and I would be lying if I said I expected to move him up any time soon--I just don't have the space right now as I'm cleaning out my entire apartment and remodeling. (Less than 250sq feet and I've got more than I need. Most of it is going to charity, the rest in the trash.) I'm thinking after the holidays I'll look into modifying his arrangement by, perhaps, getting a 20L and dividing it to hold the boys and maybe a girl.
By the way, the clear stones came from Michaels. 6.99$ for 3 pounds. With a 40% coupon I had, it cost me a little over 4$ for them. Since I'm now on a strict budget, this ate into my luxury money, along with the purchase of the filter and little urn pot, and, you know, him, but, oh well, I won't go to the movies and I'll eat out of my parents fridge for a few days.
