Feeding time! (Video)

Just wanted to share a video I made of my girls being pigs! Aren't they lovely?

Mine are exactly the same, though perhaps a little more crazy. LOL! Last night, when I opened the lid to feed, one of the girls jumped and landed right on the black rim of the tank. She just laid there, as if to say "me first!" LOL! After about a second, she jumped herself back into the tank. Crazy girls!!

I'm terrified of my girls jumping now! One jumped out WHILE I was feeding and I didn't even see her until 30 minutes later when she managed to flop onto the carpet. My guess is that she landed on a dark towel that was right there. I just don't know how I didn't SEE her jump out! There's generally a lot of splashing while I feed, so a tail slap noise wouldn't peak my attention. These crazy fish....

Rtb, I hope your girls start eating soon! I have a stubborn boy right now who has barely eaten in 2 weeks. He is starting to take bloodworms though. Have you tried those yet? Or soaking the pellets in garlic? (Didnt work for mine, but lots of people have success with the garlic)

Vegas, that is hilarious! Thank goodness she went back in her tank, and not flopping around on the dirty floor!

So adorable! Though frightening imagining them jumping out unnoticed! YIKES! Glad you found her in time.

Must wait on sorority, must wait on sorority, must wait on sorority... These guys are addictive!

Like rtb said, you need more females and lots of plants and hiding spots! My sorority is 20 gallons and has 10 females right now. It took me a week or so to be sure they weren't all going to kill each other. I had to float them together in containers inside the tank for 3 or 4 days. Then when I added them, I had two girls fighting bad, so I had to float them in containers for an extra 2 days. After that though, they seemed to have better manners and now I rarely even see a chase or nip. I have a video on here of my koi right after I added them, chasing everyone like a monster. But now she's sweet as pie. :)

You should have at least a 10 gallon tank for a sorority, with 5-6 females.
