I've had the same issues with Hydor heaters, they aren't accurate, but they work well. I have one set at 84 to keep the temp about 80 - and it holds pretty steady, the other one is in a smaller tank and seems to be more accurate, set at 81/82 and sits at 80. I can't wait til he loses his stripes and colors up a bit!

Day 10 (10/4)

So, these pictures were taken this past Friday. I think Rain is getting bigger. I also think his tail is getting bigger. He now has 2 rays. Crossing my fingers they branch out some more! Anyways, here's the pictures.

Thank you! I can't wait to see the end result, but at the same time, I don't want him to grow up! lol. It's bittersweet.

Well, I think I figured it out. I got it on 79 & it's staying at 82, so I'm happy enough. & thank you. I can't wait till his stripes go away either.

Thank you. Yeah, the monster thing is kinda big, but I have it in a 2.5 gallon, so that gives you more of a scale.

Yeah. I am hoping for a he, but you can't be 100% sure right now. I just haven't seen ovaries. Plus, he is flaring & makes bubble nests, but we'll see.

Today I went out & bought some things for my ten gallon. But I also got Rain some java moss & a new friend. His old friend, Gary, unfortunately passed away a few days ago. I never had a snail before, so I didn't know better, but I don't think there was enough algae in my tank to feed him, so I think he starved. :( (R.I.P. Gary)

Anyways, Rain's new friend, Mr. Storm, is an African dwarf frog. They've been in the tank together for a few hours now. I've been keeping an eye on them, but they seem to be getting along. They are very curious about one another. If anyone has any tips on African dwarf frogs, please feel free to add them here. I will try to add new pictures of the two soon.

Week 2! (10/8)

These pictures were taken this past Tuesday. When I checked on Rain that morning, I noticed a big change in his colors. It's kind of hard to tell in these pictures, but I thought someone must have stole my fish & replaced it with another. I'm not sure why the change is so dramatic all of the sudden. It was literally over night. So, here's the pictures.

I think he looks like a little shark in this picture.

Here is Rain with his new froggy friend, Michigan J. Frog. Michie for short because I think it's a girl frog, so Michie sounds more feminine.
