Did a change on the cories, they're kind of like kids. Came to check out the tube then zoomied off.
They are adorable!! And I'm fascinated by their social grouping! I just almost wish I could get micro tags on them so I atleast knew who was who =S
Maybe my fish hobby will rekindle my motivation to be a marine biologist yet...
Anywho's. I almost wish I'd gotten them the week before because then I'd be able to add them to the sorority during my long weekend this weekend. but oh well. I'm definitely giving them the two week qt time, just to be sure. But I'm thinking I got them pretty soon after the store's new shipment, which I do believe is Thursdays. it was so sad! The girl who helped me out was fairly knowledgable for a PetSmart employee, though there were some things I knew she had wrong, but she was nice and energetic and she loved that I was taking all seven and wouldn't leave the last guy. Apparently she'd had to explain to several people they couldn't just buy one or two because it wouldn't be very comfortable for the fish.
But my plan is to buy a pack or two of glass Mason jars to jar my girls (I just dont have enough cups that dont have soap residue), but also jar the cories and see if I can see any individual signs of illness or dmg I can't really spot with them zooming around and bumbling into eachother in the qt. xP Silly fish. It'll also let em get a close inspection of my girls too, though i try to do that at every feeding.
Excited~~ I got the smoothest gravel I could find, and it's green! I think it'll give the 29g a good green ambience, especially after I do get more plants for it. So glad I got the hornwart though, gonna let it just float and grow crazy until water change day.
