And now as I make this thread they will receive names! It's been a few days and they all still seem healthy and active, so huzzah!
Some of the pics will be borrowed from the last thread, but I needed a new one anyway so the pics would be up on the first part of the thread rather than the very end.
Anyway, the girls!
She is so dainty and petite. Nathan has totally fallen in love with her. She's not the smallest of the girls, but she sure acts like it. She's very outgoing, but delicate with her movements. She loves to stare at you for hours.
She's the original girl I had prior to the sorority. I was worried she might be a bully, but she's got some pretty good competition from the other 'big' girls!
Though she's a total pig! She needs to be separated at feeding time or she will eat til she is ready to explode.
She is the smallest girl, though teacup is only a little bit bigger. I managed to get her to eat one pellet, though she hasn't eaten much. She is interested in bloodworms. I may have to separate her at feeding time for a while just so she has a chance to learn what is food before the other girls beat her to it!
She's not a delicate flower! This is one tough broad. She's one of the bigger girls and is not shy by any means. She likes to be right up at the front of the tank. Though she manages to get herself stuck in the thicker planted areas of the tank sometimes when she goes exploring. I'll have to keep an eye on her, she likes to burrow through anything. Her coloring reminds me of an antique doll.
She's the biggest of all the girls, but is at the bottom of the food chain! Even little teacup flares and scares this baby off. She's darkest when it's lights off but in the day she gets stressed. Hoping that she will settle in soon enough and be a bit calmer. She's super interesting! She is a dark black/burgundy with neon blue iridescence. Way cool looking in person, even with the stress stripes she tends to get.
She's a total cutie. Not quite shy, not quite aggressive. Not quite fast, not quite slow. Not quite big, not quite small. Everything she does is very average, heh. But I love her! She adds a lovely balance to the tank. She's friendly to the smaller girls, but doesn't back away from the bigger ones. She generally gets along with everyone.
She's gorgeous, isn't she? I wish I could see her more often, her chosen territory is near the back of the tank. She doesn't cause much trouble, but she doesn't like it when Clementine takes her food!
so far having a sorority has been a blast! Hoping that things continue to go well. So far they have been LOVELY. Only real fighting happened early on but immediately settled. Occasional flaring is all we see.
All these names except teacup were totally made up on the spot. We'll see if they stick.
