She's a little bit shy today.
I turned on the light on the aquarium this evening when I got home from practice, and there wasn't much movement in the tank at all. She was just hanging out in the front left corner. I decided to give them all a reward of blood worms, since It had been a while since they had enjoyed them.
One started to fall right over her head, and instantly it was in her grasp and she suckled it down, albeit slowly.
As they all got fattened up, she was really slow today, like I woke her from a nap, and she just wanted breakfast in bed.
For the past 4 hours, she's just been really chill. Wandering around the aquarium without swimming at all. i was concerned my bettas ate her swimming legs, but it just seems she is a little bit lazy today. I guess thats what I get for coming home so late and turning the vita-light on almost 6 hours later than normal.
She definitely is not exhibiting the figure8 dance mentality, but gosh these critters are cool. She's just starting to wake up and chase my bettas around as we speak.
I'm really glad I picked up this hobby. I've had more entertainment out of this little 10 gallon tank in the last month than I might ever have had with my parent's cats while I lived with them.
Perhaps it is because it has been so long that I've kept a pet of my very own, but it really has been rewarding to have a tank.
