She tried to put him in the main tank since he seemed to sort of mosey around his little makeshift quarantine cup more often than yesterday but I think it was too much for him too soon cos he was struggling to get to the top for air, so he's back in "prison". lol
He's still resting at the bottom of the cup but she said he seems more alert than yesterday. We'll see how he goes tomorrow.

It may take him some time to build strength. What size is tank and type aeration?

It's a 3.7g Imagitarium. I'm not sure if it came with anything for aeration. I don't think mine did. Just the filters and the pump.

Happy New Year! Anyone make any resolutions? I have a few of the typical ones. Try to get back into regular exercise, loose a few pounds, and dive into some projects I have been planning. I did start yesterday with a big overhaul in the fish room. I move one of my shelves down a level and upgraded Marlie and Blaze tanks. I put them sideways on the shelf so I could do three that way. Then I ended up with an extra tank. Hmmm yep it got filled last night. I saw a gorgeous butterfly at the store when I went to get some pinkies. That pretty boy came home with me. I will try to get some pictures today. I put some new IAL in tanks last night. They must have been super filled with tanins because the new boys tank looks like tea today. He is happy and doing well.

Jameson got himself in a bit of trouble the other night. Swam right up in front of the vacuum. It got him but I caught it quick and released the suction so it didn't pull him in. He got to hear that middle name quite loudly. lol Jameson Alexander what in the world are you trying to do?! Get away from that tube you crazy boy. Other than a bit traumatized he was fine thankfully. These nosey bettas.

Have a couple of boys in the sick ward. I think I may have accidentally picked up wrong hose to vacuum and shared a hose. Edward and Finely have both come down with eye cloud. I have them both on meds and both are looking better but Edward's was much worse. There tanks were in same row and they both showed symptoms at same time so only thing I can think of. I usually have a pile I put dirty hoses and have another pile for clean. I disinfect all the equipment in methylene blue and hot water between every use. Sometimes even trying my best I mess up sometimes. Good caught quick and hopefully turn around quick.

Chomper had a big shed for the new year. He is such a character. I think he likes being the top dog of the room again but I sure miss baby dragon. My friend named her Angel. She is doing amazing. I have been keeping them stocked with baby roaches until they can get some shipped. Fortunately mine have been propagating quickly. Added a heat mat for Pixel. With these night temps getting so low the room temp has as well. He seems to be doing better with the increased heat. I have it one tank side since they are a burrowing species. All other reptiles are growing and doing well. Bear ate his mouse in a feeding container last night. That was a huge step. Next is to change him over to frozen thawed.

Other goals for new year:
Continue upgrades in fish tanks and work on improving aquascaping
Convert more reptile tanks to bioactive
Research on improving habitats
Consistent videos on youtube
Building channel to reach/encourage more new hobbiest
Finding time to do it all lolol

Hope this next year is a blessed one for you all :)

Happy New Year!

Naughty Jameson lol.

One of my goals was to work on my anxiety and worrying. It's not going well, but I'm turning over a new leaf today. :)

I hope we make progress with it! I don't think mine is that bad but it definitely affects my life.

I hope you all are having a good week. I started back to work today from holiday break. My son had been in for several weeks and had grandson and visited parents. We also managed to get some big house projects done like cleaning out garage, closets and attic. Amazing how those things get put off. Have been in major purge mode. If it is not being used then move it. Nice to have that done but still have some ongoing projects to finish. Work was actually kindof nice being back today. I was pretty busy but a good day. I have also been back filming and editing a new video. This will be a reptile one which will highlight the species as well as each of their distinct and funny personalities. After I get that finished, I want to start doing some more work on my Second Chance betta video with focus on betta rescue and Chance's story. I have been wanting to do that for some time but it has been hard missing Chance so much. Another reason that one has been delayed for now is I have had a big illness outbreak in the fish room. I have been super frustrated and discouraged about that. It seems like issues came crashing down after my bad tetra incident. Things have gotten tough the last week. I have hesitated sharing because I don't want you to think I am neglecting my fish. I assure you I do my best to keep everyone healthy and happy. Not long after all of that Edward came down with dreadful popeye and a secondary infection. It literally came up overnight it seemed. I got him on meds and then Finley came down with eye cloud so he has been on meds. Then Marlie got sick. Now Jameson looks like he may have early onset dropsy. He has been hanging at top for two days and I am heart broke over that. I have him on Kanaplex. Storm has been on meds for some mild fin issues but I think he is depressed. Just feel like throwing my hands up in the air some days. Edward has improved a lot but now his fins look awful. Everyone gets another round of meds tonight. I don't know what the initially culprit has been. I have never in all my years keeping fish had this many sick at once. Anyway, as hard as I try, I still have struggles. Just wanted to put that out there in case you all have ever had similar struggles. I want you to know you are safe to share anything here and no throwing under the bus from me. I hope we can all encourage one another through successes and hard days. Sorry this is one big paragraph. My English professors in college would croak lol. I am going to be thankful for the rest of the fish that are healthy and thankful that I have caught the issues and doing what I can to resolve. These are special babies to me. Each one!
