So I've had a small upset in my tank. I lost one of the minions (gold cloud minnows) and at least one of the otos, I'm thinking I actually lost two because I can only find red fish (yes they were one fish, two fish, and red fish). I did a few water changes over the course of two days just to be on the safe side. My water test kit has decided to disappear somewhere so I am having to wait for another one to come in. Greer, Ainsley, and Finley are all doing fine. they are all climbing around the tank and being their normal cute selves.
On another note the new betta I picked up, a beautiful marble delta tail, is turning a solid what looks like black till he gets in the light and then you can see the blue. IF he would stay still long enough I would get a pic of him, he also blew me a bubble nest last night ^_^.

I wanted to stock with 5 but for 3 weeks I could only get 1 (petsmart sells out fast and I wanted them all from the same place). Finally got all of them this past Friday.

Yayy! I'm excited for you!
A small update this morning before leaving at the crack of dawn to get to school (this time change is killing me) I found a "ghost" frog lol. Someone shed and left their skin behind in the plants. If its still there when I get home I'll post a pic of it. It was kinda funny because there was just this foot hanging down from a blob of what I though was a dead leaf but I finally could see almost the whole frog form.

I'm pretty sure they usually do and I have never found shed skin before in the tank who knows why they left that one there.

Was it there after?

I cannot get mine to eat out of a dish. Therefore, I spoil my water with each feeding :/

Part of it was still there but I could never get a clear pic of it because the minions were all like oh look at me look at me lol. My froggies don't always eat out the bowl so I tend to spread some of the food around with the majority of it in the dish, but between the frogs, red fish (yes its odd but my oto loves to eat beefheart and Mysis shrimp), and the shrimp not much of it stays for too long so I haven't noticed it fouling the water.

Okay thanks! I'll just have to figure out a different method for feeding, even if it includes removing the dish altogether and just putting food in front of their faces. lol
