Yeah I feel you! I work on grounds crew at college so I get plenty of sun -___-
Also I just wanted to update you and let you know that both Paddie and Maybelline had gotten worse over the weekend. I have them both in separate 2.5 gallon tanks and my 3rd petco girl is slowly clamping up herself...I don't know if maybe my ammonia readings are way off or maybe those girls aren't as tough?? My red headed girl looks fine but sometimes she just stops and sits there. She doesn't do anything but it seems like she just takes a minute to pause and sometimes it takes a good deal of my finger in her face (waving in front of her) to get her to 'come back'.
I personally cannot think of a disease since everyone is healthy but I do think that the stress of losing one girl and the reordering of my girls stressed Paddie and Maybelline to the point of sickness.
Maybelline is very willing to eat but is breathing very heavy where as Paddie seems more come and looks at the food but even her pectorals are clamped up! So she doesn't make much effort to go after the food. I've been feeding them New Life Spectrum mostly and I'm thinking tonight I'll get out the frozen blood worms to make everyone happy.
Currently the 7 in the 20 look good except my 3rd petco girl whose slowly clamping up (could be because I wasn't home and they were stressed out?).
My boy, Maximus, is doing great with the snails :) I need to head to work so I was going to test the water right after (4:30-5:00 pm) to make sure the cycle actually survived but any who. I will grab my computer so I can actually reply to everything!
