Koji and Mysti got their tanks cleaned today. After I filled Koji's tank up I realized there was still dust particles coming off his new gravel so I emptied it and refilled it, waited for it to heat back up and plopped him in, then had a mini heart attack when I realized I forgot to put water conditioner in the second time.
But he was only in the water like 5 minutes before I realized so I don't think there was any harm done, thank goodness. His new heater finally came today so hopefully I can get his water a nice steady 78-80 degrees rather than the 74-76 it's been at, seriously, those "pre-heated" heaters just do not work (for me at least). It was a temporary one anyway.
OH! I really noticed that Mysti has an egg spot now. I kind of saw it in a picture the other day, but it's really noticeable now. My baby's growing up!!
And she's so SHINEY. I really do think she'll have some sort of golden/yellow in her coloring when she grows up. I keep speculating, I'm just anxious to see!
Harley is going home one day this week. I'm really going to miss him, we've kind of bonded. But my aunt has decided to put him in the office at work, so I'll see him when I go in, it'll be a new part of my job to clean his tank, ha ha. But now I'll have an empty spot on my nightstand...
...and I'm headed to Petco tomorrow, I have to return a dog grooming table and paw trimmer I bought online, both items came defective, kind of annoyed by that. AND the third Kritter Keeper I purchased, you know, for uhm, just incase? *coughs* arrived completely scratched up. Sooo yea, gonna head there and since I know they restock bettas on Tuesdays, I must go have a little peeksies at what they got in. I really do find it relaxing to lay in bed and watch Harley's tail just swaying around in the water. I think I'd like to get another longer finned boy for there. That way I'll have a rounded family, a girl, a short plakat boy and a boy with fancier finnage. I guess we shall see.
Geez I typed a lot, I'm just trying to pass the time waiting for Mysti's water to heat back up, takes forever to hit 80. She's just swimming around and around in her waiting bowl again. I still don't understand how she doesn't get dizzy! She only stops to get mad at the towel I have wrapped around the bowl. I can almost hear her yelling "HEY, HEY YOU! You're blocking my view!" Anyhoos, onto the pics...
Take a breath.
Can you see my egg spot?
You can see it here too!
Up, up and away!
IMA BITE CHU!
