mine get 3-4 blood worms every other day, and 3-4 pellets on the opposing days :D ok, when I feed everyone tonight I'll make sure I try to get him to eat some as well.

Update on Rico:

He is looking much better today. He is darkening up on his body, almost black on his head. He gets excited when he see's me. His temperature is staying at a perfect 80. HE is SUPER active now. Swimming around, exploring, he keeps sticking his head inside his small blue plant and like, just sitting there for a moment, then leaving. He found a nice big leaf on one of his plants that he likes to sit on. His fins don't look any different, but we'll get there!

Hurrah!

I saw a ddoubletail with the top half do his tail gone at the other PetSmart. :(

Also all the water was cloudy in the cups -- they had just been changed. I wonder what they're adding that precipitates so much?

I work at Petco ;) And It was probably water conditioner. Either that or their water was realllllllyyy oxygenated and there were millions of tiny bubbles making it appear cloudy. I'm beginning to think he's actually just a halfmoon, because his tail doesn't have 2 lobes....Maybe they'll show when it grows more, but as for right now, what is there of his tail, is just one lobe..

Today we have unclamped fins!!! His ventrals are down today, no longer little balls :D

And yes, when you look at him in the tank, he looks like he only has one lobe, but in that picture with the flash, you can see two, so thats why I'm confused :P
