Yupyup. But she like freaks out when she comes in "Oh Tonya, they're absolutely starving" Honestly. I feed them twice a day and they get algae wafers three times a week. They're growing, healthy little fishies. Pretty sure I'm doing the feeding part right at least. I was over-feeding recently though.

I'll admit, it's so hard to not feed them when they do the "feed me" dance. They're absolutely adorable. But as a fishy mommy I know better.

The kicker is the comet I have that started this all (the one I'm trying to rehome) was her responsibility originally. She bought a bag full of feeder goldfish and put them in a large fountain we have outside. They lived out there for two years and one day I went out there and most of the water was gone and he was on the surface of some leaves with just a bit of water. I freaked and well, here we are now. Bleh but enough about that xD

Do you think those look like wormies or just poo that I maybe over-reacted about?

Nope, not gonna just yet. Want to wait a bit and see if just being more diligent with my cleaning and feedings helps. I don't want to move the pleco unless I have to (she's a pain to catch)
