Had a nightmare the other night... that I woke up to find my pretty "lavender gas" boy having had next to no fins.
These fish are getting too me. I've going to be moving two boys into a divided 10gal, hope they don't have too much freaking.

found some old mugshots of Nelliel




i just noticed some damage to the dorsalfin also. its a bit hard for me to monitor the dorsal because he likes to fold his dorsal 50% most of the time. the fact that he has some celophane parts on the dorsal doesnt help either. the 2nd pic is a few minutes old

Nel's current pic in the middle of a healing process

Unhappy

Here we have a new member to the tail-biter ranks. My veiltail, Psusennes, who is a little perpetual motion machine started nomming his tail today. I came home to a chunk missing. He's been doing endless loops through his plastic plant that came with his tank and I had noticed his fins looking a bit frayed so I was looking for a new kind of plant. He eats frozen bloodworms and I was afraid he would mistake the frayed edges of the silk plants for food. As it stands, I've taken the plant out and am looking for a tall smooth stone or something to put in for decoration.

Ratchet split his tail and nommed it some more. I guess I shouldn't have told him that I understood if he bit his tail with all of the stress of getting him back in his tank (Ended up failing again, same reason).

I think he blew his tail trying to intimidate Lyra though, since he seems to absolutely hate her. I guess he's into the more feminine girls since Lyra's pretty manly.

RillC, Psusennes is like, "Whaa? Where's my plant? It's so empty! Help, I've been robbed!"

Pata, oh that Ratchet. Funny about manly little Lyra, though.

Anderson is now outsourcing. He contracted the job of tailbiting to my rummynoses, who took a nice chunk out of his just-healing tail.

I wish Lyra was little. Her body is about the size of a regular male's, but she's maintained her egg spot for the whole time we've had her (Since we started he sorority so at least a few months) despite her longer fins. Her ventrals are still female size though.

Ratchet likes the girls that are like half his size with feminine little fins. He's very specific with his tastes, too bad he'll never breed because of his tail biting and aggression. I don't want a hundred little mini-piranhas swimming around my tanks.

And any other living being they happen to come across. They'd be terrifying for sure. Cute, but terrifying.
