Thanks guys! I always hear people say "It was *just* a fish." Yeah? Well it was *my* fish... jerks lol Still mega bummed that he's not here anymore - but I'm moving on. I've decided I'm going to wait til I get the new heater I ordered in the mail before I get another fish. I have two $5 off coupons to Petco so basically whichever fish calls out to me is mine, and I won't have to worry about price being an issue :)
Pascal has finally figured out what his leaf bed is for and I think he's really enjoying it :) His fins are so big so it must feel nice to rest them on something. Fiyero is just growing like a weed. I swear he doubled in size overnight. His fins are coming in so nicely and he can now eat a whole blood worm without me cutting it into pieces! Darryl is just as spunky as ever, always patrolling his tank and 'stretching his fins'. He's such a pretty fish! Mom's fish, who I've started calling Clark Gable lol, is doing well. He seems to be pretty laid-back thus far. He'll swim up to the front of the tank when I walk into the bathroom now, and he watches me when I talk to him. His color has definitely darkened up some, but I think he'll probably stay the color he is right now. He's eating well - LOVED the blood worm I gave him last night, and eats Omega One pellets like a champ. And lastly Alaric. He's been abnormally laid back and kind of clampy today. I'm not sure what the deal is. His temp is 79, water prams are good - the ammonia is almost .25 ppm but not quite, he's scheduled to get a 50% water change tomorrow so I don't think that's the problem... Just not sure what's going. He's not swollen or bloated, no weird spots - except for a hair, and yes I'm sure it's a hair as it's one of mine, stuck to his side - probably got in the water when I changed it the other day lol Maybe he's just going through a growth spurt and is using all his energy for that *shrug* Won't worry about it until I need to :) He's eating fine and still swims up to me and follows my finger when I'm by the tank.
That's all for now, thanks for checking in :)
