Well unfortunately Max didn't make it, he put up a good fight but he was just too sick. Swim in peace Max, you'll always be loved and never forgotten.
Onto the divided tank... Almost immediately after I posted that I was going to start working on it because I wasn't moving I found out I will in fact be moving (oh apartment complexes disorganized much?) So I halted that project. I'm kinda glad I did too. Ash and Guillermo are next to eachother on my dresser so they can see eachother. This has been the set up since I got Ash, almost two months ago. I figured this would be a good set up so they could get used to eachother thinking they would calm down eventually. Well Guillermo hasn't. Turns out he's a pretty aggressive betta. There was one day he charged the glass so hard at Ash that I heard him hit it. And the past couple days he's been so preoccupied with Ash that he's been ignoring me feeding him. Whenever I'm sitting on my bed watching them Ash is always in the corner closest to Guillermo, because it's closest to me. I ended up putting a piece of paper back between them. I don't think the divided tank is going to work out. If anything happened to either of them I'd be heartbroken so I think I'm going to hold off on that project.
The good news is though is my bedroom in my new apartment is bigger and I'll have an extra end table and the stand the 20 gallon is on so I think that they'll each get there own little spot to hang out. Luckily my Dad said I could keep the 20 gallon at his house while I'm not using it. So someday it'll be a good home for some lucky fish, but not these two dummies lol.
I guess since this is journal for Ash growing up that I should update about him. Well he's reached that special age where he doesn't sit still for quality pictures anymore. Everytime he sees me he gets so excited he won't sit still. He kinda reminds me of a puppy, truthfully. But he's also reached that age where he really isn't changing all that much, he's still growing well that's obvious to me, but he just looks like the same fish only bigger.
