It's like... On the other side of the city for me, but we were in the area so I might as well have stopped by. I'm sure you'll be in the city sometime (even if it's years away)... And if you are near there it might not hurt to give it a second chance.

Oh, and on an unrelated note, I got a filter (aquaclear 20) and a heater (50w) for free from my cousin, who has a tank he hasn't used in years. I might get the tank later. I always need more heaters and filters!

Cleaned up both the heater and the filter, both of which are functional. I just need to test the heater.

And I'm starting to get really interested in rabbit snails... I saw some at aquarium central and they seem pretty awesome. They like the same temperature as bettas and are apparently good tankmates for them.

They all ate five NLS tonight! Awesome! The black one seems aggressive, flaring at another girl all the time, the blue grizzle has a personality all her own... I've never seen such a hyper fish. The EE kinda just does her own thing. I'll get to know her personality soon.

My mom's new favorite fish is the blue grizzle girl. She's one of my favorites too.

I am being so careful with them lol... I spent two hours acclimating them (I swear I have a life) and they all have a little chip of IAL.

It's kinda funny that the black girl is flaring :P she was really active while she was here but never really flared that I saw. My black female is pretty aggressive too though.. I was almost bit by her today! I love how feisty they are :3
I'm glad to see that they are all safe and doing well :)
