Beautiful!
Sorry about Pandora and as Lilnau said, the best thing to do now is keep everyone else healthy. Besides, it could've been worse. You're pretty lucky the current girls are still healthy! :D Do you have IAL with them?

What does IAL stand for? :P I may, I'm just not very good at remembering short forms.

Indian Almond Leaves. :p Aren't you a breeder? Most breeders have them.

Oh, no, not a breeder! I couldn't handle that, aha! Nope, no IAL, I'm not allowed to order it, my mum hates ordering things online, and no one around me sells it.

Huh, no? Then it must've been someone else... Oh well. lol
And sorry about that, my parents don't like to buy "not mandatory" fish supplies. -.- You could add in oak leaves! Washed and dried, of course.

The tannins will make their immune response stronger.

My grandmother does have an oak tree, do you know if those are appropriate?

And I know it's overdue, but I'm really sorry about Lebron :( He seemed like a good fish.

Yes, they will do fine. As I said above, make sure they naturally fell off and you wash them under tap so there aren't any pesticides. :D

And it's okay, thank you. He's in a better place now!! ^.^

OKAY! I added in a piece of drift wood to the tank (after boiling it and letting it sit all day afterwards) and the cories are FLOCKING it! I can't get them to come out from under it! It's just a small piece, but I tried to angle it live a cave for the bottom dwellers. I fasted the girls for a day, then fed them Daphnia the next morning. Today I reintroduced their pellets and they went a little "cray-cray" XD Kassiandra finally ate pellets instead of blood worms and everyone who was bloated seems to be looking a little skinnier. This week I'm only going to do morning feedings and next week I'll bring back twice daily.

Themis died a couple of days ago- she had fungus on her tail and was severely pine-coned. By the time I got back with medication other than salts, it was too late.

On a happier note, I did get a new boy today, little Boreas. I felt bad putting him in Themis's tank so soon, but I've been looking at him in that pet store since May and I knew I needed to bring him home. I completely cleaned out her tank and added new gravel, so it looks great against his white colouring :)

Oh, and a little fun story. My mother rushed up to my room last night looking panicked and I freaked out. I asked her what was wrong, and she responded with this:

"It's those white-pink bottom fish! THEY'RE HUGE! I don't know what's wrong with them, will they make it, are they okay?!" And I burst out laughing. She thought they only got to be one or two inches, not three or four, and she thought they were going to implode or something XD

Anywho, enough terrible stories for today! I'll update with pics later!
