Tealight!! So nice to hear from you! Yes new job is going well. He has A LOT of geckos but they are beautiful and so fun to work with. Have wanted to do some small scale crested gecko breeding as well for a year or so. I finally have a pair that are old enough and up to weight. I tried about a week ago to pair them. I did a brief period of them together and then separated. Trying again today. They seem to like each other in the fact that they want to be near each other. I have heard some mating calls but no luck yet. I even tried playing them some Barry White music lol!!! February is the month of love so maybe we will have good luck.
Today has been my first day off in awhile. So nice. I have just hung out with the animals. I had great ideas of cleaning all the fish tanks but haven't gotten motivated yet. Freedom has been going down. I have pondered whether or not to intervene. The tumors on his side look like they are about to rupture. His color has changed and not eating so I know time is near. I sure hate it. He has been with me several years. Such a good boy. I put my finger to the glass the other night and he tried to swim to it. Our eyes met and it was like we both knew. He has had a long, happy life though so for that I am thankful.
On happier note, I just love brass tetras. I think they are my all time favorite community fish. I like that they are showy but peaceful and live in harmony with bettas. Penny is so funny right in the middle of them eating. They are like starved piranhas crashing the surface for food. I love watching them eat.
I really want to rescape Titan's tank. I think he is as bored with the plant set up as I am. Maybe some new driftwood and new sand would perk it up a bit. When I rescaped Penny's tank, my koi female, I added some anubias to driftwood I had and it looks so nice. The plant roots have attached well to the wood. The java moss in that tank is doing well too. would love to propagate more of that to put in other tanks. It would be nice to get some shrimp again. I keep saying I am going to do a shrimp tank but I just can't seem to have a tank without a betta lol!
How are all of your fish?
Every fish deserves a Chance
