Another picture dump!
We have some new family members around here, more snails from Peachii! One large dark footed purple stripe, and two tiny light footed babies, one purple and one ivory. I also got a few small pink ramshorns, and some MTS. My shrimp experiment hasn't gone too well unfortunately. I'm really bummed because I want the shrimp! I'm wondering if I get a higher number of them, if they will seem less of easy prey? The Amano have done okay, 3 went in the tank, one disappeared after the first day and was never seen again, I think he just didn't acclimate well and was eaten over night by the fish/mystery snail, and the other two had been out and about for a week plus mostly hanging on one log and suddenly went into hiding. Maybe molting? I did find one shell, but I don't know if it was the Amano or if it belonged to a RCS who are being picked off and mostly hiding *sigh*. The little DT baby who started out very meek has certainly grown up and turned into a little killer
He immediately went after the MTS when they went in, and I've seen him successfully take down a few, went after a baby ramshorn but wasn't successful and hopefully wont try again, thankfully doesn't bother the mystery snails (he'd be in BIG trouble, I love them). I saw him pick the eyes off of a RCS the other day... I'm not very happy with him. This AM I found him and the biggest mystery snail snacking on a dead RCS but don't know how it died. I'm really bummed because I wanted to keep shrimp in here. The Amano's seem to fair ok when they don't run and whap him with their antennae and such, he backs off, so maybe I'll only be able to keep them. Blah
The little killer still doesn't have a name either. I just can't find anything that sticks! I wonder if he's done with his color changing or if I have more to look forward to. Hope I do!
I also got more plants from Peachii, but I need to give it time to acclimate and not look so blah before I post it haha.
Snails of all sizes!
Trying to steal the slain shrimp from Fauxlivia, the snail.
Always hunting for micro-noms on the driftwood
No more red on his body, but still hints of it in his fins, and now on his pecs too
"I don't trust you, Finger..."
Mmmm, all these tasty evil noms I've been slaying make me... *BUUUURP* full!
Pinkman hates the camera phone, so no pics of him. And I think thats more than enough pictures for DT's few fans haha.
