Moar photos! :-p This is Stormfly, who spent ten minutes last night swimming around as she hunted for bloodworms. (I try to tong-feed them, but neither would come out of hiding so I had to leave their worms in the bowl until both discovered them. Thankfully, Milton will not eat anything off the bottom.)

Sorry I've been MIA! It's been insane around here this week. . . I got a few (bad) pics, but my computer won't let me take them off the memory card until I clear up some space, so one more thing to do, lol!

Stormfly is so cute!!! And Gizzy, I love your tank! It's really cool to see ADF in community doing so well! Your Gourami and Angel(s?) are STUNNING, and of course I'll always be a HUUUUGE fan of the humble Molly. Good luck getting the final angel to round out the group - can't wait to see how this tank develops, I know it's newly set up :)

Hey - got a few questions for you.

I've got an ADF in with one of my Bettas. He's my first ADF - and I wanted to know if some of his behaviors are normal.

I'll be tong-feeding him bloodworms, and he will only eat the ones in the tongs. If I drop them, I can drop them DIRECTLY on his head, and he'll ignore it.. The ghost shrimp will carry them away later. But he'll eat the ones off my tongs just fine.

When he swims around, well, he's not graceful. He tends to run into things with his head. A lot. Like the wall. Or the gravel. Or anything else he's aiming at. I think he just swims until he bumps into the wall.

Are these typical behaviors? He seems like a happy little guy. He's happily swimming around, bonking into things, and isn't scared of the tongs at all. I've had to work to get him to eat, but he is now, and he looks healthy.

I know your pain with the target feeding XD Both Tubby and Skinny (still haven't renamed them... they might stick) will just stare up at the surface, "watching" the bloodworms fall, but won't move a muscle. They'll just keep staring. Unless, of course, my turkey baster is in the water. They'll lunge at it over and over, even if there's no worms XD

Oh good. I was afraid Legolas was a little extra "special". Thanks everyone. I'll try to get a pic of him later.

...and he just did something extra special this morning. I'd dropped him a few pellets this morning because I didn't have time to get the bloodworms out. He has occasionally found those.

This morning? He lost them to the *snail*. I walked back in the room after taking my shower, and there he was, fluttering around as Mr. Snail sat firmly on top of all the pellets I dropped.
