So the two boys in their planted tanks are settled right in to their new environments.
Weehawk is always busy exploring the many things he can now swim through, or resting on leaves or moss. It's adorable! He also seems somewhat confused by the sponge filter and the bubbles shooting up through it. I put it in his favourite corner (how horrible of me!) in the hopes it'd coax him to utilise the rest of the space available to him, and while he's certainly doing that, he's also investigating the filter from time to time, swimming around the lift tube, and sometimes just stopping nearby until the current pulls him closer, then he'll swim away a couple of inches, rinse and repeat. I'm not too sure what that means, whether he's enjoying the new strange thing, or if he hates it! Eep!
Feyd's the same, really enjoying how much more stuff he's got to explore and hide in, but his favourite spot is now the filter. He's been all weird, just hanging around it, letting himself get pulled onto the sponge, then pulling himself off it and repeating. At first I worried that he couldn't help but get pulled onto it, but when I realised that there was absolutely nothing stopping him from doing anything else he wanted to do (sometimes he'll feel like going and doing other stuff, and has no difficulty doing just that) I figured it's just a new interesting thing he couldn't do before?
I wonder, are my assumptions correct? That they're thoroughly enjoying themselves? They don't seem distressed in any way, and have most of the rest of the tank where there is no current... There is slight surface agitation, but no current, so to speak...
