So I picked up another girl for my 40 gal sorority today
this is my 8th girl! yay! She had blue stress stripes , but I cleaned her cup water and set her to float for a few hours, so all the girls can get acquainted
I released her in my tank, no issues, All my girls pretty much keep the peace amongst themselves and they don't bully whoever I add in. I started with 5 and I've been adding one at a time, with absolutely no issues. I'm not sure what color type she is or tail type because close up she looks like she has a bit of ct in her, so if anyone could tell me I'd appreciate it ! Also, She's unnamed, all name suggestions welcome!
Here she is in her cup of cleaned water
and here she is in the sorority
Here is Cruella DeVille a girl I picked up from petsmart last week, She was a marble and she was SO cute! I had to have her, but WOW she has gotten SO much color in literally one week. I cleaned her cup water, because she couldn't be taken home the first night, but here she is before
here she is after 1 week in the 40 gal sorority !
This is a shot of her with flash on, her fins are deep blue, and her scales are black.
and here is a total view of my 40 gal sorority
Enough with the girls, now I have updates on two boys!
One was a purple pink hmpk male I got from petco, He is named Hermey, as in Hermey on the island of misfit toys. I named him this because he was burned bad by ammonia, and he has a huge white "ear" rather than two even fins. He lives in a groovy lil 2 gal glass bowl in my bathroom, thats planted, and since I live in south florida stays at a great 78 ish ( surprisingly with showers and all his water stays really warm because my bathroom just stays warm all the time) So I find he doesn't need a heater SO, he has no heater. Welp hes healing up GREAT! still uneaven but I think its a genetic defect at this point and I love him just the same! Welp here is his BEAUTIFUL bubble nest, the first one he's made since I got him.
haha he looked at me like I was going to feed him, and you can see about how his one fin has a big white end, the other doesn't.
Last but certainly not least is Xcalibur, a Dragon HMPK who decided he HATES being in a divided tank, and chewed his tail to bits
... Well I put him in a planted 2.5 gal, with no filter, and lots of tlc, he is also in my bathroom. (its a big bathroom haha) So he stays around 78 too and I don't have a heater in his tank. Here he is guarding a rather large bubble nest
his tail is beautifully healed again!
welp Sorry for the massive post, I'm just happy because when I went to NY a bunch of my boys decided they hated having a big beautiful tail and they looked really shabby. My two DT males Leonitis and King Triton are healing up nicely since I redesigned their tank totally. I'll have pics of them soon. Welp Let me know what you think guys!
