ATE two alge eaters.... yes ate.... i put them in everything seemed fine... woke up no alge eaters ANY WHERE i looked to see if they made a jump... not anywhere near the floor ... not in fliter... and the girls were bloated as hell... any help with that?
also safire seems to have a white patch... not raised nothing its been this way for a few months she seems normal with it just looks like .... if she lost pigment there(any thoughts)
also they seem to be "fighting" more now (recently moved what room they are in (warmer room and away from a window to try and fight alge growth)) i dotn witness the fighting but i wake up and there seem to bee alot of ripped fins i am used to maybe one tail bite a week cause someoen tried to eat safires pellet that she had her eye on(safire is kinda the queen bee in this show) as weird as this sounds... they dont fight the nights my cat sleeps under them but you know cats they never do what you want them too so now that i want her in my room she wont step foot near here.... (any suggestions to calm them down)
