Is this time change killing anyone else? I know it's only an hour difference but man, it's thrown me completely off.
Got all the boy's water changed today. I've decided that when all the holiday sales start, I'm going to purchase them a 15 long tank if I can get one on sale. They've all been living next to each other for a while now and the flaring isn't bad at all. I think we will all be happier in the long run. Poor guys get taken out of their tanks twice a week. I'm planning on redoing my bedroom and I think a nice 15 gal and a pretty stand will look great right under my window. So for now, that's the plan.
Tomorrow's plan is to go to Petco and pick up a few more plants for Mysti's tank and a snail or two, if they have any black ones. I was there on, hm, Saturday? And all the snails in the tank were dead but one, I bought it since I felt bad he had to live in a tank of all his dead family...but he never came out of his shell, so I took him back. They said they'd get a new shipment in on Wednesday. I've got a slight bloom of green and brown algae going on. I try to scrape it off the plants with my fingers when I vac, but it comes back reasonably fast. But Mysti totally beat on the snail's shell so I will need to beef up the plants and hiding spots for them.
Harley is fine.
Koji's eyes are starting to color over even more. One of them has a thick piece of scale even. But he's getting around still, so I assume there's no problem with sight.
Ramses...my problem child. His fins seem to be doing alright, but now his back is torn up? Where his dorsal meets his back the scales are raised like he rubbed against something. There's also a lump on his back. So I'll be keeping an eye on those things now. His scales also seem to be getting thicker? If that's possible. Posting pics down below.
