Thank you :)) I love my girls!
I have some good news. I've been testing their water since I released them on Monday (okay, I know that's only 3 days, but still :p) two days ago it was .25, .25, and 5 (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) then yesterday, it was .25, 0, 5, and today, I didn't test for nitrates but the ammonia and nitrites were 0! Yay! That means I get a break, lol :p but not really because I have to change Bahari's water, but at least I don't need to do both :)
Also, Bahari's tank STILL won't cycle D: ! It shows ammonia after 4 days and I've been doing two water changes a week on his tank since I set it up in November. It could have something to do with the fact that so much food sinks and I added the Nerite snail and there's algae but I'm not so sure that affects water params negatively. -_-
Also, Nero the Nerite still always hovers right at/above/below the water line 24/7. She's not dead and yesterday I saw her little mouth moving but the algae isn't growing up by the waterline!?!?
I'm afraid that there might be something wrong with my tap water and she might not make it too long, but I don't have anything to test gH or kH. :(
And an update on the girls: Stella has calmed down quite a bit. It looks like that small piece missing out of Mercy's tail split up the middle (she kind of looked like a DT, lol) and its started to heal back but its kind of clear? Where its healing back together. If that makes sense. Lotus's tear in her anal fin healed back together in less than 24 hours like I thought it would but her caudal fin seems pretty jagged on the end and I do think she gets picked on the most.
LOL. Lotus has the most hilarious facial expressions.
