Okay so its the next day and things are going pretty good so far. Guess who the supposed Alpha is? Pyxis. Well at least she's acting like it so far, chasing all the other girls around, even Hydra. But now Hydra seems to be getting fed up with it, and turns and chases Pyxis, who then gets stressed lol

Some pics will come later.

Well its been a few days since I last posted, but I FINALLY Got around to taking pics of the girls. They've been getting along pretty good, although poor Sadira has SBD and had to be QT'd. I don't know if she'll make it, she's on her side and can barely swim as well as breathing really heavily :( Treating with epsom salt and gonna give her a pea, hopefully she'll recover.

Anyway here are some pics I just took. It's official, the girls have picked an alpha. Its.......Lumen. Yeah that's right, Lumen. My newest girl and the one who had SBD when I got her, she's smaller then all but 2 of them, yet chases them around and nips whenever its needed. I was quite surprised, not only because she was sick, but because of how docile and small she was. Go figure :P Okay well here are some pics of the girls, I love them all :3


(All 6 :D Wish Sadira was there though :(


(Umbrielle: Top, Gemini: Bottom, Lumen: Right, Pyxis: Behind Lumen)


(Pyxis, Umbrielle, and Lyra begging. As if they do anything else lol)


(Okay its official. Umbriel might just be....my favorite. Well at least one of them. She may be low on the pecking order, but she packs a punch when someone messes with her. Look at those colors *drools*)


(Lyra about to face off with Umbriel D: Notice Lyra is the only one without any fin damage lol)


(Top view: Lumen, Lyra and Hydra)


(Lumen, Lyra, Hydra and what I think, is half of Gemini lol)


(Lumen about to pop off on Pyxis D: RUN PYXIS!!!!)


(One last one of Umbriel ;) Did I mention I loved her?)

Okay so thats all, I am so happy all the girls are getting along without too much fighting. Except for Hydra who is pretty torn up, but hopefully clean water will heal her. Couldn't get much of Gemini, she's either being chases or is down at the bottom in her cave. :( Poor mite. FEEDBACK PLEASE. Lots of comments lol I wanna hear what you guys think.

She nips and chases everyone, and when she gets close to them they swim away lol Pretty easy to tell when you witness it happening for more than a day.

Is Umbriel a "red devil" CT? I think that is what the coloring is called...black/red....
She's a beauty either way!

hehe begging for food...yes and you must resist their little pleading faces!! :)

You know what I noticed...if you focus on feeding a more submissive one first, they will learn
to go away from the crowd, then it seems they gain higher rank in the group...like, "Ohhh she knows
where the food goes first, she must be our leader now!" haha
