To include updates on all of my pets and general stuff. I figured I should keep track of everything, so I'll start off with this.
Fish fingers -red tailed CT
Strawberry -red tailed CT
Halloween -mustard gas CT
Hella -blue plakat
4 petco baby bettas- so far unnamed (one may be male)
1 adult possibly male 'female betta' (also has a really awkward long body and blows bubbles)
Many, many girls who have passed. SIP,
Custard, Chilli, Mini, Queen, Prince, Nippy, Nom, Red, Marbles, and Juniper.
Shota-chan -pinkish marble delta
Google -purple half moon double tail
Blueberry -pale purple/blue EE
Spike -black and blue CT
3 lonely neon tetras (they need some friends soon)
5 indoor cats
5 rescue outdoor/stray cats
1 baby corn snake
2 Madagascar hissing roaches
76392028447389102 bladder snails (in their own tank fortunately, none in my aquariums)
Some species fail to thrive in my tanks. This is especially obvious in livebearers such as swords and guppies. I've never had a guppy or sword stay alive in my super soft water here.
I did have otos, however my tanks were infected with columnaris, and due to the cycle suddenly crashing after my fish got sick, my otos did not survive.
The bladder snails came on some plants, and as I'm interested in all animals , I salvaged several snails (I only found three), and all the eggs I could find (three clutches) before I put my plants in pottassium permegeat (sp?) for the night. This was only last week. I now have at least a hundred baby bladder snails, and many more clutches.
My roaches live in one of those small critter keepers from petco, and they've thrived in my warm and humid room. Hoping to see their life cycle soon.
The snake is a recent addition. I have a 45 gallons tank for him/her when it gets big enough, but currently it's in a ten gallon aquarium. It's difficult to sex snakes, so I don't know the gender yet.
Also I have some button quail eggs on the way, ready to be hatched in my incubator. I order a dozen hatching eggs for twelve dollars, and they will arrive around the 5th or 6th.
