I forgot to reply to this. I wonder if he was sick. Usually when my fish have velvet, I notice that they start to become more reclusive and spend more time hiding than previously. This is almost always the first indication that something is wrong.
Been doing basically nothing with my fish. Half my tanks have water changes planned for today, and I will do the other half of them in a week.
All my time has been swallowed up by the dogs. Clio is such a whirlwind of energy. Apparently her sire has thrown some very 'energetic' puppies, and Clio only sleeps to recharge her batteries before she goes off to find more trouble to stir up.
She's starting to look more adult now. Her fur is weird because in places the adult coat is coming in, and she's also starting to lighten up on her shoulder and hindquarters where she will eventually be tan. At the moment her eye still seem pretty dark, which is good. I hope her face also stays relatively dark, as I love the look of a dark faced German Shepherd.
I took a few photos today while she was out in her puppy play pen on the back deck. The silver tap is over the roof of the kennel to keep the rain off as it needs to be waterproofed.
This was my mum practicing getting her to stand. I don't know what happened to her hindquarters and right front leg in this photo.
I call this the 'hip dysplasia sit'. Very flattering photo.
Then finally, here is the beautiful and nutty Nike helping out in the fish room.
