Dionysus has arrived!! And a surprise?

So today my parents called asking what to do with the fish...That was their way of telling me he made it there alright XD


He's been released into his tank now, they took a very long time floating him making sure he adjusted to the temperature and ph and all that...

Just as dad put his baggie in the water to float it, the doorbell rings and we have another package??? Despite the USPS telling us our package had been mailed back to the seller, it found its way to US! Some of the plants look a little bit like they were starting to get sickly, but they are all 90% healthy and everything was still nice and moist when they got here!

So, wow, I have my plants and my fish, awesome!

Dionysus is sooo TINY!

Here is a picture showing his size compared to the coffee mug.. granted it's a decently big one but..still! He's a little boy!


The rest of the pictures came out even fuzzier than this, sorry, it was my dad's cell phone!

Anyway, wooo!

He is itty bitty!! Dad says he is very very active, utilizing every inch of his tank.. He is very curious and is investigating his new territory, already flaring at people getting too close! XD

He ate two pellets today too!

Here is a NOT updated picture--


Nathan added the big rocks to the tank, but I got nervous and asked him to take them out until he did the vinegar test on them! Soo right now it's just the plants because he had to go home. Also, the plant on the left looks incredibly dead in this picture, but in the rest of the images it is much more green, it sort of is starting to yellow but nothing is 'dead' on it.. Any dead pieces have been removed!

He started out being picky about it, I told dad to put in one at a time.. He started out grabbing it, but couldn't decide if he wanted to eat it and spit it out--but then gobbled it up followed by the second one!

I think it's all about the individual fish really, some fish from the petstore(Like my boyfriend's!) was also just as active and ate immediately as well!
