Ladies and gentlemen, we have poop!
It's almost like Remedio read my "concerns" blurb from yesterday's update. I woke up to find poop and then saw a bit more when I arrived home from work. There was also an attempt at a tiny bubble nest when I came home as well.
I returned the malfunctioning heater this evening, and got the elite submersible
since I had heard good things about it; It should be here tomorrow. I'm going to immediately test it out in the 1.75 gallon I purchased today, and Remedio should have his new temp home ready by Sunday morning.
I did a 100% water change today, with stress coat as an additive. Remedio also had two three pellet meals today. Boy has a voracious appetite, which may or may not have contributed to his swim bladder trouble in the first place. I'll be having none of that! Though, I do believe I'll sneak in an extra pellet with his breakfast tomorrow morning. I do want to work him up to eating the same amount as Bowie, and am trying to do that slowly. Seeing as how he hadn't pooped until I started feeding him, I'm not sure when his last meal was before he was in my care, don't want to stress his system too much. However, maybe I'm being a bit too cautious?
Anyways, I believe I've covered everything exciting that happened in the world of Remedio, today. So, I'm off to go to bed and sleep for many hours, it's been quite a week and I, personally, am so glad the weekend is here.
