Picture time! I did some playing around today and got my new baby fish out of that .75 gallon tank. I'm sure he would have been fine in there for another couple of days, but *I* wasn't fine with him being in there lol Since Alaric is in the hospital tank, I scrubbed out his 5 gallon real well with hot water and then rinsed it a few times in hot water too, before setting to work on making a DIY divider. I used extra firm plastic canvas I found at Hobby Lobby and 2 report binder thingies. Worked perfectly! I just had to trim everything down to size, added the rocks in and the decorations, and voila! Perfect tank for two babies, I think. Here's the finished product!
I also named one of the new boys today, the baby - his name is Yoshi! He's completely unclamped today and happily swimming around his new home. He's going to be fun to watch grow! I was chatting on the Petco Baby thread and lilnaugrim thinks he'll probably be a plakat, possibly halfmoon too! And I'm pretty sure he'll be dragonscaled :D Here's a couple of pictures I took of him!
I love this one :D
And I took a couple of pictures of the other new fish :) He doesn't have a name yet, he's being stubborn about it. The first picture is with flash and really shows the true color of him - his body is blue and his fins are orange :)
Lets see... Gilligan has settled in nicely and is doing well. I have totally fallen in love with his little face. I'm seeing if the ends of his fins have rot on them or if they're a bit translucent because it's regrowth. I'm keeping a close eye on them and will do some salt water if necessary :)
Icarus is just a growing :) I've been doing daily pictures on my Photobucket, though I'm behind a few days on uploading them. He looks to be a bit more yellow-y tinted in the body area and his tail fin still is getting some red color to it. I haven't decided if he has ovaries or not either yet lol
Alaric is still in the hospital tank getting some API General Cure. It seems to be helping! I don't see fuzzies on him anymore :) He hasn't pooped though, which doesn't surprise me much, but I'm hoping that if he had parasites that the meds will kick them and he'll start pooping more regularly :) His abdomen doesn't look as puffy as it did when he went in so I'm taking that as a good sign.
Alistair is thriving in his 5 gallon home. Ever since I put some sponge in the intake part of the filter of his Minibow 5 he's just been loving it. I also think he likes having less activity since he's in the bathroom. He's always been a skittish fish, so being alone in a room with less activity than my bedroom really helps him.
Darryl is just Darryl lol nothing new to report about him :) He's taken to sleeping under his filter though, which cracks me up. I'll have to see if I can sneak a picture of it sometime.
Pascal is doing well, my big bug eyed boy :) His tail fin is still healing from when I tried the sponge filter out in his tank, but it's looking good. No signs of rot and the shredding isn't getting worse. :)
That's the latest on my boys!
