WELL guess the cycle begins again!
Also... (BEcause I'm insane)
Drax is being weird not in a sick way just... I dunno maybe he's just finally adjusted...
Weird? Lemme explain this morning after I fed him 2 pellets and 1 freezedried bloodworm (What? Their tiny!) He just immediately Darted off to that small cave... house thing... (Look at the pic that shows the whole tank, the thing in the bottom left) and fiddles around in there... then comes out flaring at me... darts back into the cave... comes out flaring ... and rinse and repeat. I got the message and I left him alone for awhile >,>
I just have this feeling he's like either building a bubble nest in the dome of that cave thing or ... he's plotting his escape. Either option he seems to be enjoying himself with whatever it is he's doing.
...... FINAL note.....s
Uh... is it normal for a small film to appear on the water surface? The water itself is crystal clear (Now that I've gotten the hang of that Gravel Vac) cept for that film... even after that complete water change a few days ago... the film came back. It's not bad looking... just... a very light film... it's not setting off my panic button so I'm not getting too worried about it *Sips White Chai Tea*
Lastly... teeny tiny little white dots appeared on the Anacharis plants at first I thought they were bubbles... but their SLIGHTLY Opaque and... just linger their... now and then I see one floating around in the water. Even after cleaning the plants during that water change the little dot things came back. Now these ARE setting off my panic button... >,>
EDIT DUH Figured out WHY the Anacharis's are dying Apparently they don't like being bound (This idiot has them rubberbanded to rocks) and will rot away Thus why the bottoms of them look like crap >,> *Looks at tank... See's Drax looking waaaay too comfy* Meh I'll deal with it in a few hours... the plant can survive a few more hours don't wanna freak out Drax while he's having fun with his flaring and secretive cave... stuff.
