They hatched into this world July 18th 2011 so they are coming up on their first birthday! It would be nice to see a couple get bigger, just because id love to find them a CT mate to spawn with, without the worry of the damage being to severe. Glad to hear some continue to grow though, ill keep hoping for it! :)

and she was paralyzed and when her senses came back her face was next to his tail so it caught her eye flowing about and NIP then she held on as he frantically dragged her, and she looked like a fish on a hook, flopping around, but forgetting to let go XDDD needless to say that ended spawning XD
Thanks, i feel really accomplished to research, put it all together, and it work :D Im really excited to see the little ones swim, eat, explore and play :)
Too bad you didn't get a video of that! That would have been big!

Jeff.

Punki, it's possible the white film you're seeing is just excess slime coat. Epsom salt does help promote the production of slime coat, although to a lesser extent than aquarium salt. It will also help fight off bacterial infection like AQ salt but again to a lesser extent. The epsom salt will help keep the buildup of fluids down which will affect her swimbladder. Do you have any dried oak leaves? You can crumble some of those into her tank. Better yet would be IAL. If you want some, PM me and I'll be happy to ship you some. IAL has natural antibacterial/antiparasitic properties. For the moment, unless she goes off her appetite, I would leave her in the epsom salt.

A whole year almost. What a journey it's been. :)

Oh great point Sakura, It may just be excess slime coat. Her lethargy is concerning, but otherwise shes okay. She only gets lethargic after a water change or anything that causes her to panic. I think ill stick to the epsom salts for awhile longer then. I completely forgot about slime coat! Overall shes slowly improving which is amazing from her pineconed stage. I put her in 2tsp epsom this time instead of 3 so we'll see how that goes.
We had tropical storm debby for 4-5 days of rain this week and my backyard is overrun with mosquitos so before emptying some containers i grabbed a ton of larvae and threw them into the 10g with the girls, who are now fat and happy XD
