Thumbs down Pretty unlucky...

Well, as you know, my HM Dmitri is in a plastic breeding trap until his new heater kicks into action.

To prevent the girls from jumping in, I took a sheet of plastic and put it on top of the breeding net. It's very thick, so i had problems poking holes in it. Instead, I left a TINY gap open on the side to let air and food through.

Wouldn't you know it, it was enough for Bambi to somehow get inside. I look over at my tank and she's at the bottom of the breeding trap while Dmitri was flaring at the other girls. I think my heart stopped beating for a second or two.

Thankfully, she's still alive. Her fins seem to be okay, but her head area's kinda peach-coloured. I guess she's missing scales? She seems to be okay other than that...she developed breeding stripes, the crazy girl. I hope she'll be okay.

Lol Dramaqueen! Well I guess I can't blame her, I'd have done the same if I were her.

I'm very thankfull she decided to do it while I was around. Yikes, I'd hate it if I came home to a dead Bambi. She's my favourite female. I have aquarium salt in the tank, so you think it'll be enough for her missing scales, or do I need to do another treatment?

Haha, yeah. Thanks flyingfish, you're too nice. :)

Bambi and Dmitri would have weird fry though...Bambi is purple while he's black/green/red. If anything, I'd pair him with Gloria, my green/red female.

Crazy loon keeps coming up to him now...but I've moved the 'gap' to a place which is harder for the girls to reach. I just figured it was so small they couldn't get in anyways.

lol,
weird is good, it makes them one of a kind xD
Bambi is crazy, I agree.
No girl can chase a guy forever.
When Nenet saw Pickle, she freaked out.
Pickle was the one who appears to share Bambi's feelings
He's depressed now, I moved Nenet upstairs into my room xD
