They will be ok Matt but anything you can do to keep the water temp up would be good. Once they settle into the new home their color always comes back to where it was.

I know. Not to worried about it. I put a hand warmer in to keep them warm, and its working. Not very warm, but warmer then they would be. On the road now.

We're home! And both spike and freckles made it and are now happy in their divided five gallon. Bare right now but I will grab some stuff at the pet store tommorrow and am planning on growing the hornwart into a "curtain" to block their view of each other. Freckles greedily ate up her NLS but spike spit one out so I will try again later.image.jpg

Just wanted to say that freckles is the cutest fish I've ever owned. Her belly is now all yellow/white like her mom, and she's nice and fat. They both have so much personality too! They're both very active and spike is always snooping around and she is very curious too. Spike only eats the TINY nls, with the normal sized ones he sucks it up, spits it out, sucks it up, and spits it out until it hits the bottom. I think he may be too small even though they are tiny, so I will try to crush them up. Freckles is definatly the lazy/passive one!

Awesome. Yeah Spike and the other boys are more finicky than the girls who would eat anything that moves. The fry have had gotten used to the tiny NLS Grow pellets and your boy is not the only one that struggles with the bigger pellets. Glad you like their personality! Freckles is gonna be a sweetie. Spike looks so much like his Dad its unreal and he is a very feisty little fish. Syriivens boy almost chocked on a larger pellet. I may have overfed a bit so all the fry are a lil chubby especially the girls.

Sarge is eating the Omega 1 pellets just fine but the girls are on the NLS because of being in the sorority with Senas girls who would not be able to eat a big pellet.
They LOVE bloodworms lol fed two whole cubes to my fishes the girls especially gobbled them down.
