Thank you!!! I'm just so happy they're finally growing up, still a long way to go but I count it a success, especially for these PetCo babies!

That's good to know as well. Once everything settles down and my grandfather get's the stick out of his--nvm, well Tony and Steve will be back together. I've been trying to spend some more time with them, Tony was more active today and willing to come up to eat and see me which I take as a good sign! I'll have to get them back together as soon as I can though

Day 90

This post is for pictures from yesterday so I'm dating it as yesterday

OMG DAY 90! it's been a whole three months with these boys! I can't believe it! Steve has been having major growth spurts! Tony is still on the small side but he's still growing, he's now bigger than the Endler's lol

So here's some pictures of Tony, you can see his tail is still growing out here


The little bugger wouldn't stay still! Sorry, water mark on the glass makes his eye look weird, I promise they look normal!


And then algae spots on the glass lol, I've got some glass/acrylic scrubbers on their way so I will soon have no algae spots on the glass >.>


And the only decent picture of the day got some clear growth at the edges and still only 2 ray's. Looks like he'll be VT after all.


And after some debate and Steve's tail growing out more, he's all just a VT. Why does no one breed anything exciting around here? We're stuck with all the blue VT's....I love blue, but I'd like some variation as well!




And cutest picture ever! I love those little ventral's and the lipstick! lol

lol exactly, he's too damn cute for his own good XD haha

So I think I'm going to put Steve and Tony back together again. I think my plan will be to switch Steve to Aero's side because of the filter and then put Tony where Steve was, and then put either Aero or Mercury in the 5.5 and move White Stripe the Endler in with Tony and put Blue Spot and Baby Spot in with Rembrandt since he can't swim as fast and the two males spar wayyyy too much for either Tony's liking or my liking. I knew there would be sparing but this is just ridiculous!

Oh, I forgot to mention! I did put Tony and Steve back together as planned and both are now very happy! Tony seems a little...distracted quite a bit while Steve is like "hi! HI HI HI hI HI, guess what, guess what, guess what!!! I LIIIIIKKKKKEEEE YYYYOOOOUUUU" lol, seriously that's something I could see him saying if he were able to talk.

I put Baby Spot and Blue Spot in with Tony and put White Stripe in with Rembrandt. I'm at my mom's but tomorrow I'm going to check on everyone and do some tank cleanings and get my shrimp so hopefully I'll be able to check back with pictures and say everyone is doing well!!

Day 95

Okay pictures are from yesterday and dating it again as if it were yesterday!

I've successfully moved Aero into the 5.5, Steve is now at the end of the 10 gallon and Tony is in the middle. Baby Spot and Blue Spot are in with Tony and then White Stripe went with Rembrandt.

Tony is doing much better! neither of them are striping now but Tony is being stubborn and not wanting to eat....ugg just like his namesake! And then Steve gobbles up whatever I put in there, including my finger lol Silly boy!

The two together again, Steve quite literally dwarfs Tony


Tony's got some new tail growth, still no idea what he'll be though lol




I'm wondering if Steve will experience red-loss or not.


Fins still growing and definitely a VT now


A beautiful boy and he knows it!




Tony can still only eat flakes, won't even take a crushed pellet the little bugger! Steve will eat everything which is good. Tony will readily eat Bloodworms but being as they aren't wholey nutritious...I can't feed him them all the time >.<


And the two again, Tony was a bit further back so their sizes aren't accurate but Tony is still so small! I'm hoping him being in the 10 gallon will help things out now so he doesn't stunt himself.


And this is how the 10 gallon looks right now, lovin my mysterious red/green plant! I had to buy two more because I couldn't wait for them to propagate lol but they're growing really well!!
