Live and learn :(

So you all (most of you) know my male tanks a divided tank between 9 soon to be ten fish (which is fine)

Sooo We all remember the whole Benny leaping the divider to vist and tear cedric to bits.....
WELL

live and learn. learn NEVER to let the bf do the adding of new water to tank. learn to buy the egg crate to cover the bays (under the lids) as soon as you can


So benny lept his divider bout a month ago and tore my SD buttefly cedric's fins to bits, a combination of too high a water and no bay cover.

Last night "placid" little louie tore strips off Charz but charz didnt fight back or louies a food fighter, hes not harmed in the least no fin damage AT ALL

SOOOOOOOOOOOO sheldons now in Charz's bay, the waters been lowered and ill cover louies bay over night till tomorrow when i can get egg crate to fit over all the bays

Charz is looking quite the mess in his hospital tank still being acclimatised.. pics to follow

Yes, that's positive! And I didn't know you were going to breed soon! How exciting! I wish you the best of luck with healing poor Charz and success for your breeding plan! :)

Lol thanks. healing is a long road as you and I both know. I will be buying a pair of platinum orange dragon HMs and crossing them to a female and a male of my sd x hm's and then crossing a pair of their babies back to the other babies a few times down the line then crossing them back to a sponge bob X Rayne babie.

(i will breed spongebob and rayne first as sb is about 8 months old)

I was about to say that about his "ears"! :) You can heal, lil buddy! Butterfly is rooting for you. He says it's hard, but you can do it.
Your breeding plans sound great btw! :D I must try breeding someday. :)
