Lets try this again, my internet crashed the first time.
Fish: I got a hood and heater for my 10 gallon. Smitty and Patrick currently are loving the new tank. Patrick has made a pretty decent bubble nest for an old guy
Maybe he's saying he wants a chance to breed. I might let him even though I do think he is to old. Old guys need lovins too
Smitty hasn't blown a bubble nest but he's a young'un that gets all worked up over his neighbor. I found a quarter toy machine that had those clear plastic balls. They had bright and colorful plastic monkeys in them. I got three and rinsed them really really good with super hot water, and put one in Smitty's tank. He loves chasing it around his tank trying to get that blue thing inside.
Walter (who was in the 10 gal) got moved into the 5 gal with Velvet floating in my breeder cage. I'm going to give them a whirl with spawning again. They are the pair that gave me the one fry I've ever had... I'm stuffing their faces with mosquito larva and once Velvet gets chunky with eggs I'll let her out. Although Walter has made that a bit difficult by attaching his bubble nest to the floating breeder.
Popcorn is trying to eat everything in her tank. She acts like I fast her every day. lol
Big Red looks like a pine cone from the top so I'm thinking she may have dropsy now. Poor girl, not matter what I do nothing seems to help. I hope that the clove oil gets here quick.
And Now for the new boys: Dizzy and Black Beard ( Slight name change
) are doing great! They're almost completely healed. so close to having no fuzzies, so close! I'd give them another 3 days, max, before their 100% Black Beard is even being more friendly. He at least comes up to the glass when your around. Both boys have blown bubble nests, and Dizzy is being a dunce
I put a mirror up to his cage the other day to take a few shots of him flaring and he started doing the wiggle! Apparently he looks good! lol
Human: Well the kitchen sink has decided to leak a bit, and we cant seem to fix it so we got to call the landlord. Which also means we have to clean the place up a bit, its kinda trashed. We've been so busy lately we have't had much time to clean, or ambition. Also it smells like something died outside. Like it smells bad, rotten nastiness... Kinda makes having the windows open on an 80 degree day hard... Although I don't see anything dead outside. Oh well...
