I wonder if it's something like cataracts. It seems it would have cleared up by now if not. How is he acting? Does he have problems with his vision (he must). I would probably just keep his water clean. And love him. Lots of love.

The new boy is lovely!

He does have trouble seeing. He was having a hard time finding his food last night when shrimp were floating down in water on that side. He almost always keeps good eye to front of tank. I guess that makes sense. I definitely love him no matter what.

Jameson seems to be feeling better. He is chasing the catfish. That makes me smile. His belly still is a little bloated but improving. Maybe on right track. Jameson Alexander you better heal up soon or I am pulling your igloo. That will motivate him. Haha

Ok have got a name for new boy!...Titan. What was so funny was that I was watching a Brian Barczyk video and one of his snakes was named Titan. I thought oh I like that name and Tennessee Titans have some red white and blue. Lol the funny ways you come up with names. Getting that label maker out. I think that is the longest I have ever gone without a name.

Sadly, Creamsicle passed away tonight. She will be missed especially by Freedom. He sure loved to swim next to her. They had a neat interaction with one another. Pondering moving his tank to a different spot but not sure yet. I ended up tossing everything in her tank, plants substrate and all. I hate to loose a good batch of plants but I am over the illnesses and not taking any chances. Any sick tanks will be bleached and stored for awhile.

Working my way through water changes and making sure everyone got their vitamins added. I need to do another frozen food run. I typically add a drop or so of vitachem to my cubes when I feed but since I haven't fed as much frozen lately, I added a dose direct to the tank this week. It is a good immunity boost. I have slacked off on the vitamins a bit but I think I am going to get back on that routine and maybe go back to doing the probiotic again too.

On a positive note, I had messaged several of my reptile breeders today. I had included all of their contact info in the description of my video so that if someone was looking for a reputable breeder for a specific animal, they would have a good contact. I definitely recommend the breeders I have used for quality, healthy animals and all of them have kept in contact with me after the animal came home. That is something I really appreciate because there are always questions that come up. I think from a breeder stand point, or it would be for me anyway, that they appreciate seeing their animal in a new home doing well. I know it tickles me to see my friends beardie growing and doing so well. That makes you feel like you made a difference in the investments you made caring for that animal and trying to give it a good start. Anyway, they have all messaged me back today very excited about the updates on animals and were very complimentary of the video. That really meant a lot to me. I think several of them will be at the next Repticon show in Feb so I hope to touch base with them again then. The video seems to be doing well and starting to rank so that is super neat. If I can get through all the water changes and tank cleans this weekend, hopefully I can start working on my next project. Hubby told me the other day, do you really enjoy doing all this? I said oh yeah. He knows how many hours I put in caring for the animals and then planning, researching and filming. Have been working lots of hours here lately doing extra fish work too but it is all a labor of love. Never work when you are doing something you love :) So thank you so much to all of you for reading the journal, watching videos and loving my animals along side me. I am so grateful for each of you! Oh we finally got a little dusting of snow tonight. Happy Dance! Quit laughing Tealight us southerners long for real snow haha.

All the tanks deep cleaned and you can see my floor. Definitely picture worthy lol. I even cleaned the drawers! Of course something about clean tanks is cleansing for animals. I have had lots of surprises today. Oh well nice while it lasted. Job security;)

The tanks...A few things different. I actually flipped Freedom's wood upside down. It made a nice tree. Of course Marlie, Blaze and Titan have been turned sideways on shelf to accommodate the larger tanks. Edward's plants are really filling in. I added additional hides for Sofie and Tango. They have a regular and moist hide on hot side and a hide on cold side. I wasn't sure if I had showed you my bioactive tanks in awhile. The plants have really taken off and I am really pleased with the tanks so far. I have also seen evidence of isopod breeding which is great. The babies look like little tiny blue rolly pollies. Bear's tank is functional but very plain. I would like to do him a bioactive this year with some live plants.

Have been researching some additional animals. Repticon is coming in Feb. I am pretty excited about that. You probably will see some new faces this year :)

I just love your fish room. I wish I had space for one. I think I need to keep my fish number at three for now for my landlady's sanity.. She doesn't know I bought two more fish or the 29G....

Hope you all are having a good week/weekend. The fish seem to be on the mend here which is good. I am all for progress! The cory cats are super active tonight. It is totally annoying Jameson which is pretty funny to watch. If fish could roll eyes I'm sure he would be rolling them.

We did get a little snow this week. Between that and the cold temps and ice it knocked out school for the week which meant I was off too. We work on the same schedule as our local schools. Nice to have some down time and enjoy a cup of coffee. Other than continuing some house organization projects, I have been working on a new video which will be Chance's story. Have gone through tons of pictures. It has been bitter sweet but it amazes me looking back what an incredible fish he was. Chance took a rough start but overcame so many odds. I hope the video will be a special honor to him.

All the other animals are doing well. I tried Bear on a frozen thawed the other night. Nope! Not having it. The stinker even runs from them. Now put in a live and he eats right away. He is such a funny boy though. He likes to sniff it and then lay his head on it for a minute. He then dives in the substrate and will come back up and grab it. Now somehow I have to figure out how to convince him that frozen thawed is more fun. Got my work cut out for me haha!!

Pondering between several animals for Repticon in Feb. I have had some on the radar for quite awhile but trying to decide on which one may be quite the challenge. I hope it will be a good show.
