Ok sorry a little late on this but things have come up and I have been super distracted (see my journal for details) But last Sunday was the four week mark. Time for lots and lots of water changes and the growth spurt for the next couple weeks. I still have 3 of them so yay on that part. They all seem to be getting along well. I still have them in the 5 gallon because their so tiny and I'm afraid they wont find their food if I move them to the 20. They look a tad bit bigger than last week so I'm assuming thats good. I'm kinda excited for these next couple weeks. It's going to be so warm here in Rapid City that I wont have to wait for the water to get the right temp. I just get to sit it out and let mother nature do her thing. So I guess there is a plus side to 90 degree weather lol.

So my little runt didn't make it. I found him having a hard time swimming last night. He just didn't look happy so I put him to sleep. I'm down to 2 now. But these guys are big and strong. The 5 week mark is coming up this Sunday. ooop, I got to go to work :P

Ok I still have two babies so yay there! But this will be my last spawn. Depending how these babies come out I may be willing to sell them. We're going to be getting a bunny this summer and possibly a piranha tank so I'm going to stop breeding. I wont have the time for them. My fishies will just have to live out their lives all happy in retirement :P

I had three red tail piranha, and I was not impressed... They always try to jump out of the tank. Very skittish fish.

Almost 6 weeks. Although I don't think their going to make it past vacation. Our roomie is supposed to take care of them but I highly doubt he's going to do everything I tell him too :(
