So today at 2pm ish I was in my room arranging Veyron "Sprite"s tank again when I heard a splash come from the sorority tank, or what sounded like a girl jumping out of the water and hitting the hood, HARD. I swear at that moment something flew out of the tank and hit the wall (probably a water drop), but then I frantically looked around the tank for a flopping fish and turned on the light and checked for all 5 girls, who were all happily swimming around, except Stella who was mad that I woke her from her beauty sleep. I looked for Daihatsu specifically because she's my jumper. She looked at me with innocent little eyes like she does and swam around looking at me for some food. Then I noticed something VERY disturbing - Ascari is missing 2/3 of her dorsal fin and has an open sore on her body where her fin was once attached. It was bleeding and quite swollen.
I have a feeling she jumped and ripped it off when she hit the hood because her and Kuraokami have never had nipped fins and none have had such severe injuries from the other girls. Plus it totally explains the noise I heard. Anyways, I added a few extra drops of vitachem and stress coat to the tank. She's acting totally fine, like her dorsal fin isn't half missing or anything, you know. No big deal...
Then later my Nerite freaked me out laying on her back in the corner of the tank not moving, but I flipped her back over and she's since moved from where I left her which is good.
Also, DaBaDee has been lazy and lethargic lately but I think, but am not certain, that I may be seeing very, very slight pineconing.... I really hope I'm just hallucinating but I don't know. It's very slight, you have to look REALLY close... I don't know if its for real so I don't want to treat him but I know it's too late if I don't do so immediately... I have the Kanaplex dissolved and ready for his tank.
Ugh, I just lost two and I don't want to lose any more :( he's my oldest buddy.
Edit: crud, too many updates for one night, haha! Forgot to mention that I made that homemade leaf hammock for Veyron's tank and now I just need electrical tape to keep it in place (tied fishing line to the leaf, lol). Also cut out craft mesh to cover the holes in the good which also need taped with electrical tape. It's black which will blend in with the hood. All my other tape is neon colored duct tape, lol.
Anyways, following the betta video contest in the contest section, someone posted a vid of their betta Ciel crawling into an IAL leaf hammock and it was the CUTEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN OMG!!!! Watch it lol you might cry at how cute it is. Really hope Veyron likes my homemade leaf hammock :) MoonShadow said he is very active and likes to flare at himself hahahah :D
