Day 5 of the heat treatment for the external parasites. Both boys are doing well. Merlin is perking up more and more everyday while Dragoon is still his usual happy self. Both boys are currently acclimating to their latest water change, no epsom salt this time so we'll see how Merlin does.

Good news, I think Merlin is eating the pellets, he just seemingly likes scavenging for them on the bottom. Dragoon still eats them with no problem, crunching away (first time I heard it was yesterday when I fed them in their cups XD.

Hoping to go to Pet Smart tomorrow once I know my pay check went through to get Merlin a new swim through ornament (other one smelled like paint -.-) and then on Saturday I hope to get Dragoon a new silk plant from a different store that sells a wider variety of them.

Hoping that there are no surprises either when I come home after work or wake up tomorrow morning. Not sure how much more worrying I can take!

Thanks! May have to put aquarium salt in if this slime isn't completely gone by Day 7 (so basically two days from now). Merlin does not like being left in the dark, but I keep telling him that it's so he can get better. Dragoon doesn't seem to really care so long as he gets fed.

Got a new decoration for Merlin's side, so we'll see how it does after being washed in warm water and left to sit in a bit of water while I clean the tank/change water in a little bit here. If it smells like paint, it's going in the trash and I'll just get a different decoration from a different pet store tomorrow.

Cute thing happened this morning with Merlin who woke up when I did while Dragoon was sound asleep on the suction cup of his leaf hammock (I kid you not, it was the suction cup not the leaf part!). Both were adorable looking!

I'm also finding it a bit funny as to how much interest my mom has been taking in my boys. She'll visit them whenever she goes in my room, and she's paying enough attention to them to notice the difference in Merlin's color/physical appearance! She even said it looked like he was perking up; with his fins slowing un-clamping and his color going back to its rich color.

Anyway, that's all from me until the next time!

<Rant>

*Grumbles* Found a wire in Merlin's silk plant decoration so now I need two silk plants from the other pet store, and I shall be diligent in looking for plastic parts/possible wires! I'm tired of having to replace decorations!

</Rant>


Funny moment of the day:

*Both Dragoon and Merlin are in their cups as BE1313 cleans the tank/changes water*
BE1313: *feeds Dragoon a pellet then feeds Merlin a pellet*
Dragoon: *crunch, crunch, swallow* More?
Merlin: *let's the pellet sink to the bottom then gulps it down* Meh!
BE1313: *shakes head at Merlin and feeds both bettas another pellet*
Dragoon: *munch, crunch, swallow* More?!
BE1313: *looks away from Merlin, hears a crunch; whips around to look at Merlin* "Did you just eat your pellet right away?
Merlin: *looks innocent* Nope!
BE1313: *frowns, and feeds each betta one last pellet*
Dragoon: *crunch, crunch, crunch, swallow* More!!!
Merlin: *sees BE1313 watching & ignores pellet*
BE1313: *smirks and pretends to look away from Merlin*
Merlin: *falls for ploy & takes pellet*
BE1313: HA!!!
Merlin: -.- I hate you...*swallows pellet*

Merlin is definitely eating his pellets now, which I'm very happy about. He doesn't spit them out anymore!

Sadly, exhaustion won out after a long day of shopping for fish supplies, and dress(es) to wear to a wedding that I'll be going to in two weeks, so the boys got about a 90-95% water change, and no ornaments and gravel cleaned .

Good news though; both my boys got new silk plants, and the best part...they're completely wire free!!! I did have to buy a different swim-through decoration for Merlin though since the one from PetSmart smelled like paint after soaking . So right now his new decoration is soaking just to be on the safe side. Both boys are currently investigating their new plants, and I know that they'll both like them since they're similar to the old plants they used to have (minus being plastic).
