Did a water change day for my beautiful Giant boy Boss.During wc's lately he has started chasing my finger across the tank & had a nibble at my finger last week when I put his new IAL in for him.Today when I was adjusting his filter I saw him swim over and he nibbled my finger again (feels like a soft tickly little suction cup),so I ran it across the top of the water and he chased it,lol.It is our new game on wc day.He is so cute!

Big changes around here. The office betta died of extreme old age and I had offered one of my guys as his replacement. "Fish" went off to his new home on Wednesday and is settling in. This led to a fish reshuffling at home. After a big water change and cleaning I got ready to fish shuffle. Jean-Luc Fishard got moved into Fish's 5 gallon jungle tank and El Dorado got moved into my 5 gallon Marimo moss ball tank. I loved the look of the 2 gallon, but it was a little small and the location made it inconvenient for maintenance. Once blind Squirt in the 1 gallon passes on (he's got a very fast growing tumor), my tank maintenance will be drastically reduced.

Did a water change on Mrs. Fish's tank, fed everyone, examined everyone. I haven't seen the remaining ghost shrimp for several days, but I also have to blanket the sides of the tank all day to hold in heat. I don't smell any bad smells, so I'm assuming they're just hiding really well when I look in!

He's gorgeous!

Today, I've played with and fed everyone. I still can't find my remaining 2 shrimp. The crypto plants are doing very well with my makeshift lighting, and I have blankets wrapped around the sides of the tanks to keep in the heat. Mr. Fish looks like he's getting some fin regrowth, and I don't see any new damage. I'm thinking he could see his reflection on one of the walls; I'll see about putting some paper against that wall when we don't need blankets all over the tanks. Mrs. Fish still has breeding stripes and a fat belly.

I finished the weekly water change + vacuumed the gravel. Marimo balls got cleaned and the filter media swished around a bit. Boy, fish poop a lot.
