What a long week. I wasn't home for several days, except to pop in once a day to feed the fish ans water the plants. I was afraid Phil would bite again since he was down to 1 meal a day and didn't get frd at all yesterday. It looks like he bit just a little, much better than I expected. He did almost take my finger off when I gave him his dinner.
I got him a new silk plant and, gasp, I got him a small anubias. I've been wanting to try live plants for awhile. I can't believe I spent $6.99 on it. I had dreams it would grow quickly. Today it's not looking so great. Two of the leaves have brown spots. I took it out of the tank and put it in a seperate container do it wouldn't contaminate the water. None of the tank lights were on while I was gone. The tanks get natural light during the day. I thought anubias was a low light plant but maybe it needs a little. I need to figure out better lights because both tanks have low light.
Poor Phil was like "wait, where are you going with my plant?" When I put it in he looked at it and showed interest. This is contrary to when I put the moss ball in and he flared. Hopefully the anubias recovers quickly so it can go back in.
