Maybe I need to start a log.... lol. I've been delaying this for over a week or two, so prepare for a photo overload!

Meet Mr. Finnegan. He's usually a streak of red, white, and blue, because he does not hold still for long. He loves proving his athletic abilities by swimming loops around things, making him a delight to watch (and a bit exhausting to watch, tbh... lol). So far, he's been friendly with the ghost shrimp and Mr. Snail (aka Charlie - more on him later). Originally, I had considered putting a sorority in this tank, but as it's only 10 gallons, it's already got a community in it, and the subwassertang hasn't quite grown enough to provide sufficient cover for multiple gals, I decided on this charming little fellow who stole my heart. He named himself fairly quickly.

On to an update on Aimee. She's definitely grown, especially once I started to grind her pellets down to a smaller size in a mortar and pestle, and she loves the frozen food that I've been giving her once a day. Her bowl is tiny, at half a gallon, so I'm carefully watching the water. Her coloring is even more fascinating than it was the day I found her, changing with the lighting and probably her mood as well. I'd almost call it "unicorn" color, because it has an opalescence about it, and it never remains the same.

Charlie the Snail, aka Mr. Snail, has easily doubled or tripled in size. His antics are hilarious, and I never thought I'd be so fascinated by a snail. I'd read that they can be startled when the light is switched on and they don't expect it, and I finally witnessed it the other night. His reaction was a little delayed, but he suddenly let go of the glass and landed at the bottom of the tank. Because he's much bigger than he used to be, it's now much easier to find him when he's not in the open. He used to hang out in or near one of the caves, but he's gotten to be rather adventurous.

As for the ghost shrimp... Well... They are really difficult to find amongst the plants, hideaways, and whatnot. However, once in a while, one or two of them will be out in the open. It took me a few weeks to get a good shot of Mr. Big Shrimp (might be female, but I have no way of knowing....). Once in a while, I'll think I'm seeing a piece of random debris floating around in the tank and question whether I need to do some maintenance, until I realize it's Mr. Big Shrimp going for a swim.

As for the old boys – Amadeus and Cornelius – they are the same as ever, so no photo updates on them.
your tank looks so good!!!
