~~~Sorority Journal~~~{Will be updated daily}

Monday June 14

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.

Peep & Cheep are swimming around together. Great! They're buds! Chirp blends into everything. She can be hard to spot. So far her and Tweet are low on the totum pole. Hummer & Singer can't stand each other!

4:00 p.m. Looking like everyone has settled down some. They are just swimming and chasing a little. Nothing major.

8:00 p.m. Fed everyone. They all got something. Then the chasing, nipping, and biting started again. Is this going to happen every time I Feed?

9:00 p.m. settled down again. I am leaving the light on for the night. Night girls.

Day 2

6:30a.m. Fish eyes waiting on me!!


Chirp on top. Directly below her is Hummer, then Cheep, Tweet and Singer.


Peep & Hummer
Everyone still with us!!! Doesn't look like anything happened during the night. Everyone ate something this morning. Maybe feeding time won't be so bad after all.

Chasing & a little nipping after feeding again.
