Life's derpin.

Kale has popeye. No swollen belly, but some of his scales look...rough? Raised? Sharp? Not a pinecone, just...individual scales are visible.

So I've had him in a 1 gal qt tank floated in the 10g, and am considering moving him to his own 3g so that him and Seiya stop bouncing stuff back and forth. At this point I'm glad I got individual 5gs for my new boys later.

Added about 2 tsps/gal of espom today...see if it helps. If not, may treat with meds.

OKie - quick update;

Seiya has finmelt, which I'm trying to heal with clean water and some aq salt so my plants don't die.

Kalec is on day 3 of maracyn for his popeye...one's still buggier than the other for sure.

Sylvannas had a scale flake off ehr gillt plate last night o.o But nothing seems amiss and there doesnt seem to be an open wound anywhere....

Slyph's bubblenest has two mounds now!

And Demi's Demi, ever so happy to be a fish.

Getting my babies and adopting a DT this Saturday, as well as getting a Chi Fluval 5g, more decorations (needing silk pants), extra meds, stress coat, etc. Also getting some IAL (thank you!) to last me over until mine arrives in a few weeks.

Biggest news is that my sorority is now going to be in a 29gallon instead of a 10!!! On the basis that I clean up my 'fish mess' around the house.

Otherwise~ I'm being cut off from collecting more ^^;

I have that 3pack of background silk plants from Petco that I LOVE. Are you adding live plants?

Live plants rlly arent in the budget right now. I`m thinking I`ll get a driftwood deco (or real driftwood if they have it) and set that in there so later I can tie moss or anubia to it. Whatever plants I do get, chances are they`re going in this tank. So I`m hoping until I can really get into the live plant part of it, that PetSmart has some taller silk plants.

Idk about Petsmart but I have nearly all of Petco's silk plants and the tallest they have is 14 inches I think. How tall is the tank? They also have those exo-terra silk plants that have suction cups, you could use them as floaters.

Omoghs that sounds amazing and like a plan I should see into =O I have suction cups a plenty (for my home-made betta hammocks) and could make my own stuff floating off the walls! You`re brilliant!

I dont think we have PetCo up here =

Petco and petsmart are mighty similar. I know Petco has better holding spaces for the bettas, petsmart has better live plants, Petco has NLS, petsmart has flourish for plants... There's a few things you can get at one or the other but they are very similar.

You have a few silk plants in there already that are identical to ones I have. I guess you could add suction cups to any silk plants (if you remove the weights)... They will float but the suction cups would keep them from floating all over the place.
