Ahh Kingdra has me sooo whipped. He hasnt taken to dry food yet so I have to soak all his pellets in water first to soften them up then drop them directly in front of him. Then Im trying to condition him so I give him frozen brine shrimp, well I have to put it in a cup of tank water to thaw it out, then because I dont have a dropper, I have to take a makeshift straw made out of a mechanical pencil shell and suck up a shrimp through the straw (dont worry I stop before it gets in my mouth). Then I pull the straw out of the cup keeping the pressure on it so the shrimp and water dont fall out then I have to lean over the tank and release the pressure of the straw in front of him so he can see the shrimp fall in the water. I feel like Im a momma bird feeding its baby. Hes lucky hes pretty because hes alot of work Its working nice though his fins are getting fuller every day.

Yah, hes just very picky I have to watch him eat each thing to make sure he doesnt spit it up. Hes taking most of it, hes also getting less afraid of me which really helps, it was hard trying to feed him when he was hiding in his plants.

Maybe he'll eat more as he gets more used to his new home.

Well if you guys cant tell by now I have no life So I spent my time taking pictures again.

I got my newest male kingdra to come out of hiding, hes starting to recognize me as the food source and comes to the front.


I also got him to flare at a mirror for me, sadly I discovered he has a small hole in his dorsal That cant be passed to future fry can it ?


Heres a quick fts, I made it small because it doesnt really matter, I had to cut the plants loose because they were dying when bound together.


This is the stuff thats coming off the plants, it is just a very thin film on top of the water only, I dont know what Im going to do about it?

Kingdra is beautiful!! I think the hole is probably just a teat and can't be passed on to his offspring.

It cant be passed on to the fry.

As for the film, remove it. It can suffocate the young fry, that's another reason I use corner filters.
