sadly, my newest addition, Cupid, passed away sometime during the night. i'm not sure how or why. i found him on the bottom of the tank. i did purchase a bin that i was able to successfully divide for him and my tail biter but now it's not needed. i took everything out and rinsed it with hot water and reset it up for just my tail biter.
and then, i noticed all 3 of my males in my 10 gallon had clamped fins. stupid heater failed me again and dropped from 78 to 74. you'd think it wouldn't bug them too much but it has. so i cupped everyone to eliminate space they had to swim and i put the original heater back in hoping that it will fix everyone. ugh. my CT is really unhappy, he's a nervous one and jumps at the sight of anything besides my face. so being in the cup and nervous isn't awesome.
the only one doing fine still is my tail biter rescue. he's tough as nails.
picture #1 is of the "bin tank" and Kilian.
picture #2 is Frosty and his clamped fins. he's healing from fin rot.
picture #3 is of Ren and his clamped fins.
picture #4 is of Ryuu and his clamped fins.
i don't know if anyone can notice they're clamped. but i know my boys and their fins don't EVER look like that.
