Tank is ready for the girls.
It was ready on Friday but I couldn't be around to put the girls in. Waited for today. Here are the girls
Peep -White w/blue on fins, marble. My oldest and the largest of the girls. She is my baby!
Don't have a good picture of the other girls yet. Will get that up when I can.
Cheep - White w/red fins
Chirp - Brown
Tweet - White w/a little bit of yellow
Hummer - Very dark blue
Singer - Blue w/red fins
Put everyone in, in there cups @8:00 a.m.
8:30 a.m. one cup tipped over when I wasn't looking and Tweet has escaped. I am thinking this is ok since she seems to be the more mellow of the bunch.
9:15 a.m. Chirp is let out, also mellow
9:30 a.m. Another cup tips over and Cheep, the most aggressive escaped.
9:45 a.m. I go ahead and release the others. If there is ever a "next" time I will put my fishes in baggies.
9:55 a.m. Major fighting between Hummer & Singer. Very scary for me! They get a big spat going and I net the bigger of the two. (Singer) for just a minute. Hummer starts exploring. I let out Singer. Hummer bee lines
for her. LIP LOCK - TUGGING - PULLING
! I net Hummer. Singer goes exploring. Release Hummer and the two chase each other a little. Just a couple of nips here and there.
So far everyone swims up to Peep, she bows up, gives them a look like "Don't EVEN go there" and they swim away.
