The fact that it left a strange waxy film on my hands when I took it out. I also need to replace the filter cartridge. Not a big deal. Fixing that tomorrow.
I have more pictures, even one of Chili and Angel together (not on the same side though, they were looking at eachother.) I also have some more pictures of Dangerous and his growing bubblenest. He's been guarding it like crazy LOL!
^.^ glad Dangerous is feeling better!
Every time I see pics here I think 'GOSH these fish and tanks are stunning!' I mean, you're tanks are always so bright and full of life!
Welcome! (to the hobby and the site) I know, this forum is so awesome Taught me so much and keeps teaching me
So my new boy's name is officially Kip! So here's more pics of him in his tank! I'm redoing my room in a few months and going to move him to a 5 gal. so he can wiggle more, he's such a wiggle worm! <3 I have a little throw together sponge filter in his tank using these (the tweezers are for getting food and stuff off the bottom of my tanks)
I put an airstone I had laying around in the hole and stuck some suction cups on it so it wouldn't float. I'm pretty pleased with myself! It's only temporary of course.
I'm SOO happy I brought him home! My mom and I were looking at the fish, and I always picked Kip up, and at the time my mom came over and was saying how cute he was and I told her he had been there for a few months, then she said if I thought I could handle it I could get him. So I said 'let's go get lunch and do some things in the area' (had to pick some things up for him) and we'd come back and grab him, a hide, and some plants. On our way home we stopped in the drive through and grabbed some Ice cream and headed home!
I got to do another 100% wc for the divided tank today, it looks great! I got it looking more even and less crowded.
Beautiful boys! I probably couldn't handle more than 2 boys right now (found a gorgeous little dude at Petco today to help get over Indigo's death), it's great you're able to take care of so many fish without being overwhelmed. I know I probably would be.
Angel looks fabulous. The look he's giving the camera in the pic before is hilarious.
Thank you so much!! I'm so happy you were able to find a new boy. Have you shown him off yet? I'd love to see him! I know haha, I just take it a step at a time, and don't do more than I can handle in a day.
Thank you, He's got attitude! :-D
OK, so for a while I've been thinking about finding a new home for Angel, would anyone in Texas be interested? I'm a little scared to ship because I really have no idea what to do, and I'd be a little scared. He's very busy, and really is only comfortable in nothing larger than a 2.5 gal. tank (I think it helps reduce his nipping), heavily planted. He loves his plants! I don't think I'd be able to do anything right now as I'm a bit busy, but I thought I'd just let everyone know in case someone was interested.
I would love to take him in... but I'm in New York. Plus, I don't have any extra tanks. xP But I totally get what your saying about shipping... I bet you'll find someone (whos close) to take him in soon enough!
