Bless his little heart! He looks a 1000 times better than he did this time yesterday. Keep up whatever you are doing, and prayers will be sent your way :)

Heehee XD

I'm getting so distracted by him when I'm supposed to be doing schol work :P

I just changed out the majority of his tea. I'm 70% sure his body is a teal-ish
And he has dark red fins

Wow what a huge change in behavior for your fishie. It looked like a fish in formaldehyde in the first video till you startled him.

  • I would drop in like 2 dozen mosquito larvae if you can gather enough. But make sure you cover the tank in case they hatch.
  • He just needs to be fattened up. Eventually he'll be eating pellets by the bucket.

I've NEVER seen a LIVE fish with fins so stiff like that.

Looks like his fins were sprayed with hairspray NOT literally since they don't seem to flow freely when he swims.

Really curious to see what he'll look like in a week.

I froze my extra mosquitos in ice cube trays. Each individual cube should have at least 50-250 mosquitos.

I can bring you a few thousand frozen in a ziplock bag in my cooler if I pass by the area for a large annual festival in the next week or two. I forget the date, but festival will take place on a Sunday.

I'll probably hit Hell's Kitchen FM area in the morning & festival in the afternoon.

I may try to smuggle a turtle back on my way home.

You must have 1 friend nearby who lives in a house with a yard full of skitos.

  • I'm still wary of parasites/fertilizers that might have cross contaminated the skito water. The red boys haven't been fed many of the skitos at all.

I haven't received any accurate ID's on those rabbit earred slug like critters in the water where I found the skitos.
