so my new boy is in his new tank, everything seems okay, he has 1 java fern and 5 ghost shrimp in there... It would have been 6 but one uh... Slipped through the net and went down the drain haha........i had to pour them out of the bag into a net to get them out -_-. Luckily they are the crickets of the aquarium world and cheap so i can get another on to replace it for a few cents.
I am watching him explore the bounderies of his new tank. It was once a 4 gal vase so it has that lipped top, bottle neck and big bubble. He is spending a lot of time in the bubble area atm. He sorta swims up the the top grabs a gulp of air then just lets himself fall back into the bubble area.
I think he is a bit shocked at his new home size.
I will get some pictures when he is calm and happy and i can get a good photo.
Fishie update. He is seemingly settled in. He enjoys his little tunnel I made him, and actually poses to taunt me... As soon as I raise the camera opps her move/turn/left... What is hard is because it is a curved tank it is hard to get a nice clear picture.... BUT I will succeed eventually.
Now to come up with a name lol.
Nixon is doing great! Only one downfall, the 1g I have is reflective and I CAN'T turn his light on or he flares at himself all day. He flares at me if I come near the tank, he's the sauciest pup I have ever met! And he's got size to back him up lol His Momma told me he clamps up after water changes, but he didn't on me so hopefully that means he likes his water... and guess what?? He's the second one here to blow a nest in 24h. Freddy did this, and now Nixon. I think I'm getting good at this.
So it turns out the fishtank and stand my grandpa has is just a fishtank, the stand was a cabinet thing that he's now using upstairs. BUT, he still has the fishtank, so I will be getting another 20G fishtank but for FREE :D <3 i LOVE my grandpa :D
