Hey guys! It’s been a while sine I started my Betta +guppies thread (A long time) SO I’ll give a brief recap of how that went. Originally bought 5 guppies, two male three female. Over the course of times the females and a male died before having any fry, leaving only Phoenix, a yellow and green iridescence snakeskin who live for six months and survived a month of swim bladder and wasting disease. he passed away a week ago. He was a super sweet and definitely my favorite guppy ever. I bought three males, Peaches, Hydra and Nicholas. About two weeks ago Peaches was unfortunately killed by a malfunctioning in my stupid gravel vac. It broke and I didn’t notice, and he was sucked up and killed instantly. Super traumatic.
I’ve had pretty bad luck with guppies. Out of the eight I’ve bought two survive. Hydra and Nicholas are super happy and healthy and seem happy as a duo, so I’m trying something new...
Platys.
I’m gonna skip all the crud and move onto my points here since I monologged about my guppies. (Sorry, budding author, love to talk) (Or write)
I have a ten gall tank with my patient, sweet and tolerant male veil tail, Sam. He’s been with me for over a year and is the best fish I’ve ever owned. Besides the two guppies I have four pygmy corys and one salt and pepper cory who has been excepted into the clan of pygmies well. I originally had three Salt and Peppers but two simply passed away of unknown causes. I have a mix of fake and live plants and decorations everywhere. Filtered, heated at 76 degrees, sand sub. Infestations of bladder snails, combating slowly with assassins. Slowest mafia members ever.
I plan on getting a trio of platys, one male three females. I want to get black and white + blue and white at my fancy-smancy LFS.
Here to record my sucess or failure. Stay tuned if you so wish. Pics (hopfully) coming soon.

On another note, I’m interested in by cherry shrimp. Would they end up as a snack for sam or work? He’s slow and has a back issues which slows him down, but still.

Imput and questions ALWAYS welcome.

Sorry for typos. Bad keyboard.

I thought I did stick this in the journal thread area. My computer’s been glitching out lately, sorry about that!
