The return of Cinder (and me!)!!

Hello, everyone!!

It's been a few months since I've been back here. A lot has happened since I last updated with y'all.

First off, I have withdrawn from my university for health reasons. However I am transferring to another university-- several states away!!!-- next year. More than likely, Cinder will be traveling with me (or at least that's the plan for now. It may be that I have to leave him behind, which would break my heart because I love him so much!!).

Speaking of the fish, Cinder has been an absolute joy to have around. He is healthy and active and is constantly making bubblenests. At the moment he is swimming up and down the length of his tank, trying to get a better look at what I'm doing. We've gotten to a point in our relationship that he is very trusting of when I'll feed him, chases my finger whenever I'm close to the tank... he's even gotten to a point that he'll nibble my finger before getting breakfast and dinner!!

He had a growth spurt a while back, but he seems to be slowing down now. I expect he'll put on more weight once I start increasing his daily diet. He had some sort of ich action going on last month, but a water change seemed to clear that up right away. Still a bit of a mystery as to why that occured, but I'm just grateful he's been healthy since.

He's been just slightly lethargic the past few days, but we've also had a few cold snaps in my hometown and the glass of the tank has gotten chilly! The water itself is still lukewarm... but I'll make sure he's kept plenty warm. Since it's a bare-bottom tank, I'll probably put a small towel underneath it to insulate the tank.


Whew! What a monologue! Anyway, you get cookies if you read all of that. In short: Cinder and I are doing great!

Hope all is well with y'all!

Welcome back! I'm glad that Cinder is still doing well, and you too. I agree with iheartmyfishies, it doesn't seem like months at all!
