DaBaDee looks much happier now. He's less lethargic, more responsive, isn't floating uncontrollably and does a wiggle dance every time he sees me without the "sad eyes", although he still looks kind of pale/see through.
Bahari's buoyancy/bloating issues are less severe and he's still harder than heck to feed. A few days ago he actually had no buoyancy issues at all. I've been soaking DaBaDees food in metro and VitaChem and soaking Bahari's in metro, Kanaplex and VitaChem. All of them now have VitaChem added to their water, including my brothers tank.
The girls are great. Absolutely no issues with them, thank god, and I think they do a good job entertaining each other so I can spend a bit more time with my sick boys. I really love how Lotus's colors and finnage has turned out. She's a HM and my boys are VT & CT so I think it has something to do with never having a HM before, lol. The girls look like they are getting more fond of my finger and I'm preparing for them to start jumping like Okami used to. Not sure if its an age/size factor since Okami was older and larger, but they just look like they're about ready to pounce during feeding times.
Another note - the empty cycling tank is the one right next to my bed (probably should have put DaBaDees there instead) and OMG IT NEEDS TO HURRY UP AND CYCLE BECAUSE I WANT A FISH TO SLEEP NEXT TO AND WAKE UP TO DOING A WIGGLE DANCE.
That is all.
