Now that I'm finally settled in at home, I've got pictures of my boys in their new habitats!
First up is Dax, who's now living in one of those 3-gallon "Bio Cube" aquariums with a nice adjustable heater and little filter. He's asleep in this picture, but I do think he looks better than he did when I first got him.
This is Sparky, by far the most adaptable of the bunch. When everyone else was still getting used to their new place, he was flaring at his neighbors and bugging me for food. This pic is really too dark, but his blue is this beautiful, dark electric blue when seen with proper lighting.
And here's my newest boy, Patrick, who I've bought since I've been home. In the very isolated city where I go to college, you can go to either the two Wal-Marts or the Petsmart, so I was very excited to get home to a Petco to get a Delta.
The last of the boys is an as-of-yet-unnamed fella that I fell in love with when I was at aforementioned Petsmart picking up some fake plants. He's always been lazy to the point of just plain lethargic, but built a nice bubblenest upon arrival in his new home. Suggestions for his name are highly welcomed, because the best I've come up with so far is Akiyuki.
Last of all is my sorority tank, which is an endeavor that I had to dive in way sooner than I would have liked... But upon arriving at home, my mother told me that I had to cut down on my number of tanks. So to avoid trying to find homes for multiple fish, I just went ahead and put together the sorority. All of the girls were being very camera shy, so this is just a picture of the whole thing. More plants are soon to come, but everyone's getting along great so far. Pink gal on the right is Haru/Taffy, and the CT to the right of her is Nanaka. Missing are Sparrow and Kat. And the person holding the camera in the reflection is me, lol.
