good news, bad news

first, the bad news. x:

Caroline passed away. our fight with whatever she had, has ended. these last few days, she was more inactive than usual, and she didn't eat the pellets i fed her the last two days. nothing i tried, worked. clean water didn't help her, meds didn't help her. she kept getting skinnier and skinnier, and not even parasite meds helped.

but, a touch of good news. the DT females i bought from Chard, arrived! they were a bit dazed from the trip, but safe. i was so worried about them! Yahoo toolbar's saying it's 99F right now! Dx i bought a copper and yellow, and a gold yellow, and they're beautiful! i floated them for over an hour, since it's sooooo hot out, and released the copper gal, but when i picked up the gold gal's baggy, it felt slimy and gross, so i changed the water in the temporary bowl, and am re-floating her. they're both getting 2 gallon Kritter Keepers, once i clean out Caroline's and finish cleaning out my brother's late CT's. i have NO clue what i'm gonna name them! xD any suggestions?

update! :O

went to the pet store, and found the ugliest little male ever. x: he's grey-brown, with clear-grey fins. he's also a tad skinny, but we'll fix that. :d named him Scout. i've been calling him "Scoot", though. lol named him after one of the classes in Team Fortress 2.

i gotta get pics of his bubble nest! it's HUGE! bigger than he is!

thanks. i named him, and my two females, after Team Fortress 2 characters. the character, Scout, is slim and quick(yet a pain in the butt), and the little guy's slim, quick, and... not a pain in the butt. lol
