I think your sorority tank looks great and heavily decorated!
I'm seeing some of the same silk plants I have in mine :p I like yours better but I decided against any decor that isn't plants for various reasons. I also want to add live plants when I get my new hood :) I'll get my girls tomorrow I think :D

I can't wait to see yours! I love the names, as usual :p sororities are just WAY to exciting, aren't they? :D :D :D

It'll certainly have me stressed out watching them have a go at eachother. But they'll only be 3 months old and all siblings, so it may not be so bad. Some of the plants are connected to the decorations, so~ >.< I'm sure they'll be okay. I checked for any small spaces they could get stuck and they'll be fine I think.

Well I just couldn't find any decorations with big enough holes and enough holes :p I want plenty of holes so if a girl is being chased she can easily get away with plenty of exits, ya know?
I know I'll be stressed a bit but I already love my girls and I'm turbo-prepared, haha!

I'm considering taking a few days off work just so I can be home and keep an eye on them.

Added some pics of everyone today. Each time I do though, I feel like I'm forgetting a fish, then remember - Phy's gone :(

But Kale'cs growing into a double-ray CT, Demi's lost her green in favor of blue (her dorsal keeps going away, then growing back.....??), Slyph is now energetic, always hungry and a little more fearless. Sylvannas still eats daintilly -- And Seiya is definitely developing some darker teal and his marble pattern is moving.

So...I stopped adding 2 tsp of aq salt to my weekly water changes in the 10g, and they developed ich. Treating it now with 6 tsp aq salt added over 24 hours and heat cranked to 86F. Poor boys =( Removed the plants so they dont die, but...the nerites recently had sex through the mesh dividier...and now that i've added so much salt they're horny. Gary got over teh divider and I caught him motoring over to who is now 'Sid'ney. =/

Adding the last 2 tsps tonight and hoping they'll be okay.

Okie...Seiya and Kalec are in their 1 gallon qt's floating in the 10g both on 3 tsps of aq salt. The have two more days of this to be sure all the ick is gone, then after i do the water change on the 10g they're home free again.

Also, Seiya's continuing to change colors =) Just slightly, but he is.




Also got cuttlebone for the snails...and not sure how I feel about using cuttlebon. I mean, it's a heavilly fished fish and popular as a food in asia and europe...but I realy dont think any heavy fishing of any fish should be done, we're reaching a critical point of no return in our history - when we fish the oceans dry.
