Was hoping this wasn't one of those videos where you concentrate hard to see something and then a scary face jumps out and screams at you and scares you although the catfish was scary looking close up funny how erie a fish tank looks in night vision

So I set up the camera and it was too crappy to see in the tank. So I turned the light on in the next room so I could just barely see in the tank, and sat and watched for 15 minutes. Well, the Rainbowfish LOVED the algae wafers. No Catfish. I know where two of them are, and they didn't come out.

I figured this was a good day to use the wafers since tomorrow is water change day anyway.

I tested the water in all the tanks today, and the nitrates were higher in that tank. So maybe there is a dead catfish in there somewhere.

My next plan of attack is to remove the two big ornaments from that tank. They'll still have driftwood to hide under, but I'll be able to keep an eye on them.

I came upstairs after my failed surveillance mission and Charlie puked all over the bed. He has a slight fever. He got flu and booster shots yesterday. Now he says his eye is hurting. He may have a headache.

Found the bugger!!

We took the two large ornaments out of that tank. The catfish still have driftwood and a log to hide it, but now we can find the buggers.

The tank looks huge and empty now, but the Rainbows seem to enjoy the extra swimming room. In the new year when we have money again I will put live plants where the ornaments were. We don't have any live plants in that tank yet.

So we did that when we did water changes on 6 of the tanks today (we do the 220 a different day, otherwise we run out of hot water). First we checked the Silver Dollar tank, and moved everything around to find the small spotted raphael, couldn't find him!! So now, the big one is found, but the little one is missing. Like the large one, haven't seen that one since we brought him home. We see the Chocolate and Banjo cats every day!

Jodie finally believes me that there is a spotted catfish in the Rainbowfish tank. She was seriously doubting me, as she had never seen it.

Charlie is much better today guys, thanks. His fever went down over night. We kept him home from school today, just in case.

He still has no appetite, and we've made all his favorite foods, but he hasn't puked all day, and he has not had a fever.
