Duck finally arrived yesterday from Thailand. He took my nervous, anxious expectations and threw them out the window and into the neighbor's yard. :P
He's adjustment has been so perfect, it's like he's been around forever. With the exception, that he seriously looks like he's taking it all in, making an effort to learn the routine and understand his new world. He's so cute. x3
Anyway, this morning, for breakfast I fed all the fishies frozen bloodworms, I figured that was a food he was most familar with he gobbled them all up. :D
Since Duck's arrival, there's been a divider between his tank and Salsa's, I didn't want to add any stress to his new environment. Well, this morning, I thought I'd take it off for a minute to introduce them. Well, Salsa gave Duck some big boy flares! Duck, looks more curious then anything, gave a couple baby flares and then watched, almost entertained, as Salsa gave quite the show. Noonie, who's on the other side of Salsa watched Salsa the entire time, almost as if he was like 'what on earth is going on over there!' I don't think Noonie can see Duck through Salsa's tank, but he sure noticed the commotion. Anyway, the barrier is back in place. I'll be removing it throughout the day, getting them used to the idea of each other.
Enough rambling, onto the pictures! :D He's colored up a little since he first arrived, but I know he still has some more to do. ^^
And because they shouldn't be left out, here's Salsa and Noonie.
Noonie... ugh, I can't tell you enough how hard he is to photograph... Anyway, he's working on a new bubblenest this morning as you can see.
And here's Salsa, and just because his recovery amazes me every day, I posted an old picture taken on March 5, just so you can see, once again, how well he's doing.
Thanks for looking! :D
... More pics coming soon. ;)
