I probably will. Unfortunately, I don't have any more tank space ATM although I could always set up something temporary.... I keep thinking about that poor little CT though, maybe I'll try to convince my mom to go back today and get him.
Actually....I just told my mom that now and she didn't object, so help may be on the way for the little CT!! And, she's going to bring me to get some black water extract or betta spa (she won't let me get IAL from e-bay) so I could use a LOT of that and hopefully his rays won't curl. Oh, and I have more bins...and he could float in my 15 gal until the other 2 move in, then he could float in the 29 gallon while the plants grow...........ah, and then I could give him and a setup to my parents for their anniversary (on the pretense that I would take care of him)! Perfect!
More good news too. Both my new fish finally pooped! The daphnia didn't work so I used a pea last night and lo and behold this morning there were poops! Edelweiss still looks a little bloated so I'm going to fast her and feed her more pea tomorrow, but she's on the mend at least. I wasn't nearly as worried about Victor, because Edelweiss actually was the one having some slight tilting issues (her tail seemed to want to float up). I have a feeling that within a few more days she too would have been floating and moved to "the desk" so she's a lucky little girl
