Holy mackerel! How time flies!!!
So! Lots to talk about, sort of lol
Last week I ended up getting two 'Japonica' shrimp for the babies since I had stuffed a bunch of Java moss in there which I intend on actually using for something at some point
lol but for now, it's just floating in their 5.5 ^_^ so I acclimated the two Amano's and released after a while, the one on Steve's side freaked out like you wouldn't believe while the one on Tony's side happily went straight for the Java moss and instantly started to clean up any debris/leftover flakes/algae which I was happy about! I also found a tiny Ramshorn snail that came with it so I acclimated him too and threw him on Tony's side!
Here's the one from Steve's side:
Unfortunately....he's dead now
I have no idea where he went since the tank is completely covered so I can only assume that either Steve harrassed him to death and he's in the filter now or he jumped the fence and the other shrimp ate him or something but I really don't know! There's no shell or nothing but I'm really not too worried, the one on Tony's side is still alive and well.
The Ramshorn and the Shrimp:
And the Ramshorn died too >.< I found him dead or rather, completely missing from it's shell yesterday so I assume Tony ate him, the little bugger >.> So I can't have snails either, yay..../sarcasm.
So anyway, I got new lights for the 5.5!! Woohoo! Better pictures now, yay!!! I got a 10W CFL with 6,500K
yay plants will grow better too!!
So here's the tank with the upgrade, be jealous of my obnoxious amount of java moss hahaha
So here's a dump of Steve, look at his beautiful fins!!
Cute little ventral's and pectorals!
He's really such a cutie ^_^
Look at that iridescence shine!
Tony wasn't havin' any of his bull either XD
I'm pretty sure that Tony was PMS'ing yesterday because he would not flare and he did not want to see Steve whatsoever, he just seemed very grumpy all around and so I couldn't get many good pictures of him :-/
This one shows off his colors best:
I thought this picture was just the cutest ever! He looks like a mini Heat Miser here XD
Okay so he's not CT but he's not VT either...his ray's branch four times so far so I really have no idea, I guess then, he'd just be a DeT unless he ends up being a Combtail!
And that's all I have for you today folks! Enjoy the day!
