Its video time!
Bought some Rosy Reds, in an attempt to get a small school going for my 45. I know odds are ill lose em all, or they wont be healthy enough, but after two days, only one has died! =]
So, they first video is of my 45 gallon, day five! Obviously still cycling, but my test today shows the hint of NitrIte, so let the process begin! Currently in my tank is one Rose Red Minnow, and two Apple Snails. And about 7-8 pond snails.

The next video is of my crayfish, Senorita Mountain, eating a dead Rosy Red. In the begining of the video, you can see Little Buddy, Mountains ghost shrimp. Mountain wont eat him, LB even sometimes forages inbetween Mountains claws, and she just sits there. LB's been in there for about three weeks. I just re did his tank last night, and used a peice of the background i was going to use for the 45, and it has stones and driftwood on it, with a balck background. I had to switch it over o the sea side, because Mountian was having a complex over the fact that she couldent get on the rocks like the ones in her tank! I lik eit better the way it is, even though i had to redo the tank twice in one night. I keep looking at the tank, and singing, 'Under da sea, under da sea.." XD

These are my fry! I only have three..I think my other females may have been giving birth, and eating the babies, cause there are so many of them? Anyways, I have one Dalmation Molly, 21 days old, and two Guppy fry, 20 days old. Their tank is in my second bathroom, which is attached to my "fish room". They have a sponge filter, but no heat, cause there is an entrance to the attic right next to it, and the bathroom is always hot.

And lastly, is my QT tank, where there are nine guppies, a BN pleco, and a RN pleco. They are waiting for my 45 gallon to cycle, so they can one by one, go to their new home! There are three males [Red one, blonde red and blue one and a rainbow tailed] and six females. They think there will be food! This is what they do whenever im near the tank..Lol. There is my favorite, fattest female, the black tailed silver, there is a closeup of her, and i call her Black Mama...I cant wait for her to pop!
