Oh and that white thing I zoomed in on, I can't tell if it's a dead shrimp or a moult. I'm leaning towards the second, as it looks 'burst' on the back.

I really hope it is

ROCK THAT TANK, GIRL!!! *SWOOOOONS* It's gorgeous!
Your little Rassies make me smile. . . a swarm. I love them, I'm happy to see them finally home!
LH is looking well, too. She's such a pretty little thing. She's obviously thriving under your care.
Lovely, all lovely - keep up the good work! *hugs*


And. . . is that. . .TOBY!? *dances*

When it rains, it freaking pours.

Not only is my betta sick with some sort of fungal infection going on, her tank just sprung a leak and started dripping all over the place. Absolutely lovely.

She's now sitting in the 20 gal completely PO'd at me while her tank is half empty with silicone re-applied on corner that was leaking. It doesn't look very pretty but whatever.

Urgg. I'm being punished by the fish gods for going on vacation, I swear.

GAAAAAAH!!! Jen. *hugs*

Having a bit of WIRIP tank syndrome over here, too. . . dunno what I did to anger the fish gods, either!
*begs forgiveness*

Good luck, ladybird! At least these things DO have a way of sorting themselves out, eventually. . .

And it just got worse today -_________- My canister filter now has a lovely little drip leak going on.

Did I mention re-siliconing the ten gallon tank didn't work? The leak is at the tippy top so if I keep the water a bit lower it's okay, I just hate seeing the water line.

I hope everything gets better soon or I'm gonna go insane hahahaha.

Okay so I am literally running around the house squealing because I am SO EXCITED right now. It's like I'm being rewarded for all that crap I had to go through a few days back, I am seriously just jumping up and down right now.

Why? Why oh why?

BECAUSE I HAVE FOUR (YES, FOUR, COUNT 'EM) RASBORA BABIES. FOUR. I AM JUST BLOWN AWAY.

I knew one of my shrimp had let loose some babies awhile ago and I was looking for them (didn't find em), but lo and behold, BABY RASBORAS. I originally only saw three but a fourth one made itself present pretty soon after. I am still just so excited right now. My Rasboras have spawned pretty regularly but I just assumed that the Kuhlis would eat all the eggs/fry, and the Rasboras would probably have their fair share of nomming.

I actually got a video, you can see three of them. I'm HOPING they can hide well enough from the Rasboras, I have my fingers crossed so tight. They're hiding behind the aponogeton leaf, they're those three little specks in the video.

It's pretty funny because literally a minute before I spotted them I was thinking "I should get a few more Rasboras, maybe 3 or 4..."


Eeeeeee!!! <3

I don't think I'm going to target feed them or anything, and I've seen them darting around a few times, hopefully getting bites to eat. I think my tank is established enough to have plenty of food for them, plus I think putting food near them might just invite the adults to dinner....0.0

So, I HOPE I can find them regularly after this, but even if they don't survive I am just through the roof excited.

I changed the title, so hopefully the profiles won't mess with it.


They're the tiny little moving specks under the top leaf, kind of between two leaves.

Lion Heart passed away last night :( She was doing so good on treatment for her Saprolegnia, but then back again and she just couldn't take another round of treatment :( I feel awful, but I'm glad at least she had a big, warm tank at some point in her life.
