So im a little unsure about doin the journal thing...but hey...whats the worst that can happen?

Soo i guess i will just start with today... because some of you know my back story.


2/18/12
Need to do another W/C on all of my tanks today, but Dad is in a bad mood...and he gets to mad about me changing water.
Thor is looking much better now that i removed the one plant in his tank...his tail is healing up from the tears it was causing. He is also flaring at the Mirror now! Back to his old super aggressive self? I hope!
Loki is starting to get more territorial...when he is presented with the Mirror he Flairs like a beast. He is also developing more Lavender on his face...i think he would be called a piebald? (i know horses with white on the face that stretch over the eye are piebald...). Its very good to see him flair so hard now, he was so shy for a while.
My Purple VT ( i need another Norse themes name...) female is annoyingly aggressive now...i think i need to get my sorority back up to 6 or 7 girls so she will chill a bit.
I think i may need to Pull my big multi and do a treatment on her...but i don't want to leave just 3 in the tank.
Valkyrie is very interested in the male Guppie i added yesterday...she used to be the Alpha but the Purple seems to reign supreme now.
Athena is getting bigger, i cant wait to see her colors once she is an adult...so far she has a black body, red CT fins (that almost look double ray) and a purple shimmer to her.

The 3 female Guppies are very fat with fry...so i hope my ladies will have some live food here soon.

Its a very short time (just untill i get a single flair so only about 30 seconds), and not even twice a week. The Point is to cause a little stress, and to make them behave in a territorial way.
some people on here use it as stimulation for fin growth and will do it quite often.

Thats perfectly fine Mardi :)

Some breeders have said that, i do beleave, you can stretch a super delta into a hm by regular flaring? but iv never tried this.
And i would think having him flair would help with the fin regrowth, because it stimulates the circulation of blood to the fins.
Plus they get lazy being the king of the tank.
