It was either a large grey cat or a raccoon. I was taking out the garbage, and it was inside the dumpster! Bit me when I opened the lid, and took off!
Just had my second appointment for a vaccine today. They aren't sitting well with me.

I have a Hydor 25w on it's way through Amazon, but Sir Reginald started to get really neurotic, and tore up his dorsal and caudal fins, so Charmy had to be moved early.
I divided my 10g tank (that I just set up for my newest, still unnamed, boy!), re-set it up as an NPT, and he loves it! He's got 5 whole gallons, and he looks so good!

I'm holding up okay. The vaccines are making me exhausted and triggering my migraines something fierce, though!

I get bites all the time at work, so that part is nothing new.

The poor fishies are getting the short end of the stick! I've been so tired, I can't drag myself out of bed sometimes to go feed them all...

That's understandable. Take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon.

I'm much better already today! Tomorrow may be a different story, since I'm getting another vaccine, but we'll see.

Charmy is doing wonderfully, and Sir Reginald is starting to heal as well. Lots of fin regrowth in my house!

I've got some good pics today, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any of his first flares! He was so cute!

I added a nerite snail to each side of the 10g that he's in. (His is missing right now. I'm sure I'll find it tomorrow...)

The tank is cycling beautifully. 5ppm nitrates tonight!

I'm such a sucker!

Oh, so, first, Charmy's doing great, the little brat. He and his tankmate both decided it would be awesome to eat the sinking algae wafer pieces I put in for the snails. Brats.
His fins are growing in nicely, and he may yet prove to be a crowntail!

But on the why I'm a sucker...

I picked up two new rescues today.

Gyarados is a gorgeous turquoise DeT. I had seen him at Petco a while ago, and let the staff know about him. They pulled him to keep an eye on him, and today I got him for half-price because... he's blind!

And I also got Finneon. He's a royal blue CT. He's in bad shape. He's laying on his side, he's flopping around, every so often he does barrel rolls. It'd be cute if it wasn't so worrying. I'm not sure he's going to make it through the night. The manager gave him to me for free, since she knows how hard I try for them.

Gyarados is still in his cup, waiting for his 1.7g KK (NPT) to de-cloudify. He's in good shape, just special needs. As much as I hate keeping him in the cup longer, I want to water in his tank to settle before he goes in, so he might stay in there overnight. I'll wrap it in a towel if I have to leave him there.

Finneon is in a 0.75g KK, no decor, approximately half-full. I'm slowly switching out the water to 1tsp/g epsom salt. Everybody is conditioned with Prime and Stress Coat+.

If he doesn't make it, then I know that he was warm and clean for his last night. If he does, then he's a fighter, and I think I might have a chance!

Yay!

Finneon just ate a sunken NLS pellet!
That's never a bad sign!
