I've finally done the first steps towards a female sorority: getting a couple females! So far, they're each housed in their separate tanks, and this right here is my little gem, Pinkie Pie (name courtesy of my pegasister roommate)! My male Orpheus is simply infatuated with the little thing and the other female! While I floated her in my male's tank, he went crazy and began to show off like a maniac! No aggression, just pure flirting! Poor little baby looked confused and didn't know what to make of it
She is very skinny so I'm wondering: would the frozen food I have now (a mix of brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia) be a good source of nutrition for her or no? She does gobble the stuff up if I put it in small amounts, and the other female does too!
Also, she's currently housed in a heated 1 gallon tank until the 10 gallon I'm buying tomorrow gets cycled. Would that be okay as a temporary home? The temperature in there is 78 right now. The other female is a 2 gallon heated bowl, same temperature.
Here are the new girls! Pinkie Pie is first, and the other girl is my little piggy Merry!
