Day 8: 12-21-11

Well, it's been over a week since Remedio's homecoming.

I have been feeding him a 4 pellet meal in the morning and 3 pellet meal in the evening, for the past few days. I plan to work him up to two four pellet meals with his evening meal today.

Not liking how the original bowl I had bought was working, I went and exchanged it for 3 gallon kritter keeper. I set it up with the ornaments and heater I had in his bowl. He spent the night in there last night, and he hasn't seemed to simmer down from the excitement of having that much room since then.

Updates here are going to become a little more sporadic. I'm going to be occupied with entertaining guests for the next few days, so I'm not sure how much free time I'll have on my hands. Plus, he's doing so well, there really hasn't been anything new, on a daily basis for some time now. P.S. The heater is working great, keeping his water at a constant 79 degrees.

Here are some more recent photos of him. His color is AMAZING! I'm really excited to see how his fins develop.

He's pretty! He reminds me of my little Rusty who died a couple of years ago.

12-26-11: The first flare

So, this morning, at around @8:45ish when I went to feed Remedio his breakfast, he flared at me!

I always take a pinch of pellets, place them in the palm of one of my hands and then, with the other hand, dip my finger into the tank water to wet it to make it easier to stick a pellet to it. Well, when I stuck my finger in Remedio RACED over to me and flared as soon as I took my finger out, revealing no food had been left.

Oh, silly, silly silly Remedio.

Picture Progress..

Some picture spam

Picture 1: 12-13-11~ The day after I brought him home
Picture 2: 12-19-11
Picture 3: 1-1-12

Remedio's personality has come out in full force! He's been flaring at me always attacks his net whenever it makes an appearance, even if I'm just using it to pick up some sunken pellets. I've taken to calling him "My Piranha".

I have to admit that this topic has made my day just that bit brighter! I'm so glad he's made wonderful progress and hope he continues to live happily and healthily.

Hey, SpookyTooth! His silly personality makes my days brighter as well! It's kind of amazing how these little guys can touch ones heart in such a big way.

Thanks so much for the well wishes. I'm doing all I can to make sure he continues to live happy and healthy, and he's responding better than I ever imagined; and that's all I ever wished for, when I was carrying his little cup out of that pet store, to bring him home.
