I have kind of disappeared off this site! Well I don't have internet access any longer, just on my phone, and it is difficult to access this site easily off of a PHONE. As well I have been extremely busy as many of you have experienced.
Anyways, since I am on NOW, I thought I would catch y'all up!
Kaida is doing very well. She hasn't gotten much bigger so I think she's going to stay her petite size. She has only gotten eggy once, but within the past few days has been flaring her beard! It's very adorable. If she wasn't older and carrying eggs and have her egg spot I would think she was a plakat male! Her colors just get brighter and she's nearly rainbow now. If I can get pictures I will post them, she never sits still! ;)
Julep is no longer green, rather a fabulous blue. He has been very healthy as well and being his usual happy self! He still loses ALL his color when it gets dark, so he still freaks me out with that, LOL! But he isn't sick so I don't worry too much and leave his light on. He had an algae problem which struck me odd, so yesterday he had everything 100% cleaned and needs a new filter pad. Anyways, I added some java moss to his tank and he LOVES it!! He swims through it all slow-like as if he's a predator or something, just too cute!
My male from Chard I am STILL waiting on. It's almost September and it's still 107*!!! I don't want another dead fish so it's worth the wait. I am hoping to switch my 10 gallon community to my 20 but need a hood for it. If I can do that and decorate it, I will put one of my bettas in there with them. If not, the new male is going into my empty 5 gallon.
Hopefully I will be on more! I hope everyone is doing well (:
