his fins were like that before they bred. His fins got caught in the filter intake on his previous tank and it tore his fins to pieces. they've grown back like this, I think the nerves on the ends have died. I'm going to have to trim his fins so they'll grow back properly, but I'm gonna wait until he is done tending the children to do that. And I'm hoping they'll get his beautiful fins as well, i lucked out when I saw him at petsmart.

I'm at work right now, But my boyfriend got home from work a little while ago and called me with an update. Jorah has not eaten any eggs and is actively tending the nest.

on another non related note, i have now finished my training and am now a fully functional dispatcher at my police dept!!! This has been a great week, with the spawn and finishing my training!!

and I am so happy that I have completed my training. I'm glad they feel as if the officers can depend on me to keep them safe :)

Whille I was at work the buffer I had in the filter came out and the current destroyed jorahs nest! However, He managed to save the eggs and built a small nest to put them in. He is currently working on it to make it bigger

Not to change the subject, but I wouldn't trim his fins. That will undoubtedly be extremely stressful for him.

Fin trimming can be a good way to avoid infection if they are shredded in an extremely jagged fashion. I've done it, and it is definitely stressful for both the fish and the human, but sometimes necessary. Depends on the situation. I've also heard some breeders do it so that the slow longfin male doesn't get killed by the faster female during breeding, or when rosetailing is so severe the fish has difficulty swimming. Most fish (including mine) bounce back in a couple of hours and are no worse for the wear. Like any surgery, though, some might be so shocked that they don't make it.

He needs it done, they keep getting infected. I'll put him through the medicine routine and it'll just get infected again. So after he's done tending this spawn and he's recovered from doing all of that work, I'll trim them so they can grow back properly and not get infected. I have a brand new pair of cuticle scissors that I will sterilize before I do it.


On a note about the spawn, There are a few that were hatched before I left for work today. They kept swimming away from the nest and Jorah would chase them and put them right back in the nest! it's so cute!

I have an order of the deli cups coming in the mail so that when its time to jar them I'll be ready. I also have a brine shrimp hatchery on the way as well. This spawn kind of happened by accident so I've overnighted the supplies. I was introducing Dany to Jorah. The way I do it is to put her in with him for a few minutes and then take her out and put her back into the breeder box. I got a phone call from my mom in another town who was expecting us for dinner and moved the time up and so we had to rush out the door and I forgot to take Dany out. I got home and found eggs in the nest! She wasn't too terribly beat up so I moved her to the 55 again and put some stress coat in for her and some food.

Rather than cuticle scissors, it might be better for you to get a long straight-razor, hone it to a paper-thin edge, and do a single slice for the fins, rather than trimming with cuticle scissors. It's safer and less stressful for everyone involved.
