Oh man it's been soooooo long! Hey guys, I'M BACK! AGAIN! Hopefully for good this time!
I come bearing sad news- Leo passed away. I was so stupid, I forgot to close the lip of the tank and he jumped and when I got home it was too late. Stupid, stupid fish.
At the moment, am, unfortunately, Betta-less. We're beginning a plan to get our house fixed up so we can move in the spring, which means less space for tanks. Man, you guys never even met Luci and he's gone. Little Lucifer, a red Betta, currently resides at a neighbour's house. I might get him back at the new house, but the kids are already attached, and he's happy there. Samandriel had gotten some Neons in his 10g, and they now live in a friend's ten (soon to be twenty) gallon with some guppies. I also rescued some Pearl Danios for a short time, and they have been rehomed as well.
Currently, I have a ten gallon set up with some juvenile Barbs. Soleil is... vicious. She killed and ate two Barbs, and so I bought four new ones, which will make the school eight. I was worried at first that the fish were sick, but I hadn't noticed any symptoms, and then I realized it was two males that had already had bite marks on them in the past few weeks from Soleil. When they step out of line, she is NOT nice. Castiel the Pleco is getting big! He's so precious I LOVE HIM! Everyone else is going strong, and hopefully I'll be able to get some pics soon.
One of the other reasons so many tanks are gone is that my mum said two tanks. My friend had been looking for more fish, so I gave her the ten's residents. But I also got a free twenty from a moving neighbour.
It's finally happening after eight months of waiting.
The Axolotl is coming.
I AM SO EXCITED. S/HE'S GONNA LIVE IN THE TWENTY AND EAT WORMS AND PELLETS AND FEEDER FISH AND BE FRIGGIN CUTE AND I LOVE IT ALREADY I AM NAMING IT BENNY I DON'T CARE ABOUT GENDER.
EEHHEEEEEHEEEEE! I'm way too excited. I've picked out a white guy with pink gills, but I'm still tempted to switch to black.
ANYWAYS! I might start up an Axolotl journal all on it's own, or I'll keep it here and have something exciting to write about!
So the medical issues continue. I've got strep right now, and I also have a lot of crap going on that's pretty bad that could involve a lot of surgeries. So that's a heads up if I disappear again. Hoping for the best and that I can stay active! Woo!
