With recent rain came a heap of bugs and insects which of course were drawn to the tank lights and thus ended up on the surface of the water. Three of my four pigged out last night on them...not Acheron though as he's going blind in one eye and has trouble finding pallets let alone finding insects. Anyways, Yuki, Zelda and Lucifer all have bloated tummies now and I could be worrying over nothing but I just want to make sure they'll be alright. Lucifer and Acheron are also now roomies in a divided tank.
