Opps, apparently I missed Day 9 and 10

Well during day 9, I noticed the water temp was bouncing between 75-80F and Spike wasn't liking it. He was very mopy. And I didn't have the moola for a heater that day :'(

So day 10, did some cleaning for mother in law and got the cash for Spike's heater. Set up his heater. He had fun flaring at it/poking it.

Day 11: Spike made it through the night with his new heater. Can't tell ya how worried I was last night. I lowered the heater down a degree last night and so far it is keeping the tank at an approx 81, 82F. Spike is very happy and so am I :)

Day 12: So I took a chance and fed Spike some of the frozen brine shrimp. I am still super nervous about feeding it to him as it was the last food Cal ate before he got terribly sick.
Spike must of gotten so used to his food floating that he didn't realize 90% of the shrimp fell to the bottom. He only ate 2 shrimpies. I'll leave them on the bottom for a little while longer and see if he notices them.

Day 13: Spike had found the rest of the shrimpies. Last night I noted him looking in every nok and cranny of the gravel. Even saw him move a few rocks xD. Fed him his pellets this morning. And moderately thinking about changing his gravel to sand when I get his new plants.

Day 14: Spike's water finally cleared up and I released him. 1st thing he did was zoom through his logs and show me his dislike for being held in his cup that long. He flared quite a bit at me xD

Day 15: Today is the day of Spike's fasting. More angry Spike. He'll get his brine shrimp tomorrow ;)

Day 16: Gave Spike his brine shrimp. He gobbled them up like the wittle piggie he is. He even tried to eat some sand. Was funny to watch him spat it back out xD

That's funny I fed mine their brine shrimp today as it is water change day. Midnight my new CT has gravel let some float down to the bottom. It got between the cracks and he actually nudged a small piece of gravel over to get to it.
