Spike has been doing great.
I am very pleased with the fact that I haven't really had any problems with him. He also built a bubble nest a coupla days or so agao.

Nice nest your boy built. I can't get my fish to build bubble nests for the life of me in there filtered 10/5 gallon tanks. They built them everyday in their kritter keepers when I was cycling the tanks.

We moved to our new apartment.
Spike traveled well. He was quite active the whole ride there.
Once there, he also got some new scenery. He likes it alot. He is always swimming through the plants and through his new hidey :)


I placed his tank against the wall instead of the window because I wanted to try to minimize how much draft he received.

Also, he will be without a light for a few days. My BFF dropped the tank hood/busted the blub in the process :'(
Lastly, his heater seems to be having a hard time raising the temp. When I released him the water stayed at 80-83 SOLID for a coupla hours. Now the tank seems to be staying at 80F. Not the temp I want it at but I'm atleast happy it is somewhat where I want it.

Spike has built a coupla nice bubble nests. The one surrounding the plant is thinner, more than likely a result of the filter run off. And the ones directly under the filter are pretty thick. He tends to them rather often :)



I'm still trying to get a photo of Spike lingering inside his crocs skull. He is proving to be a speedy swimmer xD

June 1st 2012: Spike's light "popped". The rest of the day, he seemed confused but remained his normal self.

June 2nd 2012: Spike did not greet me this morning. I could not find him in his tank. I stuck the net in there and eventually found him. He was sluggish. But once fed he perked up a bit. His fins are clamped he is clearly unhappy. I suspect it maybe because of not having a light.
I've kept the receipt. It is still valid and I will exchange the blub in. I hope he will get better with the new light.
Also, his water temp was a bit lower than usual. Right between the green and yellow. 80F?

Turns out Spike had a surprise pleco friend and the ammonia levels spiked in his tank.
Ammonia appears to finally be gone. Spike is back to his normal self. swimming about, eating, flaring and overall happy.
I've also purchased an Anacharis plant for his tank. It so far seems to be doing well in his tank. He loves it as well. Spends a great deal of time with it :)
