Yeah, he gets one every other day when I feed the puffers, and pellets the other day. But today I forgot about him when I was feeding bloodworms, so he got pellets. Which he went right after for a change.

It's crazy how they can squeeze themselves into the smallest space.

Try giving your Puffer's live Blackworms.That's what I feed mine and they love it.I get a teaspoon for $1.00 or Tablespoon for $2.00.You have to refrigerate them in a Tupperware container and poke holes it it.I just use a KFC container for mine:)~Didn't want to ruin my Tupperware.

LOL. I don't blame you. I don't know if anyone sells them around here, but I'll certainly have a look.

Ok, so we got the fish a computer. We figured they were old enough now we could trust them to be on line.

I made a webcam stand out of Charlie's high hat. He was not impressed. But he was 2 when we got him a drum kit and it was a stupid idea. I need to think these things through.

So I was more than happy to silence that thing for the cause.

These pics are horrible. My camera no longer takes pics in the basement. Even though all the lights are on and there is a window. It wasn't even dark when these were taken, and you can barely see anything.





So we'll be streaming when the tank lights are on, which is approximately 9 AM to 9 PM. I'll know better now that we're streaming. Before I was never down there exactly when the lights came on and went off.

The only time we won't stream will be when I'm doing tank maintenance and when Charlie is skyping with his grandparents. Which is why Jodie wanted a computer in the basement.

Now that we have one I will be more inclined to spend more time in the basement with the fish too.

So it's at the same URL as before dctatts on USTREAM: 220 Gallon Freshwater Aquarium. Fish

I'll move the camera around to see what the best angle/distance from the tank is. I like this shot, but you can't quite see the right corner, where a lot of fish hang out. Usually the Balas hang around the driftwood on the left, and the tetras hang out on the right, when they're not swimming back and forth.

So basically the catfish are my favorites right now.

The Banjos lay around in the open all day, and the Chocolate's hide.

Then I went to feed them. Nothing special, just sinking pellets.

The chocolates went mental! They went all over the tank for ages! I grabbed the camera and recorded while they covered every inch of the tank. The Banjos were unimpressed.

After all the food was gone, the Chocolates went right back to hiding under the driftwood.

This weekend my Big Al's has buy 1 catfish, get the second for $1. So I'm going to grab two more on Friday when I get some plants for the puffer tanks.

I was going to get whiptails but apparently they live mostly on algae and my tank really only has enough algae for the Hillstream Loach.

They exist. Here is an example:

But I don't know anything about them. This one says it is only good up to 10 feet. Have no idea what the quality is like. I assume since the technology is available, you can probably get better ones for more money.
