HUZZAH for the Badis nomming on some wormies! Oh, I'm SO happy that they're finally settling in and eating! How are your Puffers doing?
I have been wanting to try my hands at them for awhile now but I *wasn't*
really ready to start though. These lil Scarlet Badis aren't really giving me a choice though.
I checked on the worms today. I can see some movement in the microworms and the walter worms. Not too much going on in the banana worm aspect. The Vineager eels have really took off though. I *might
* give them a try tomorrow if I can manage to get the lil buggers out! LoL
Jes I don't know how much of my thread you have read or not but my Puffer Yes just Puffer is doing fine. He is a survivor. LoL as for my last three i got the were soo small and soo picky on foods. I couldn't ever get them to take anything but snails. At the time i couldn't get any live worms either. They just refused frozen foods. So yeah they didn't make it.
My one remain puffer is the adult that I have had for 2 years now. He has been in multuple tanks and different setups. He has done great well once I got him on frozen foods. I feed him live blackworms today for the first time in like 22months lol.
A month ago he took a ride in my filter
as my sponge fall off the end of my intake. I walked over to the tank and I didn't get my normal greeting that he normally does any time you walk by. So i started freaking out! I looked and looked and couldn't find him. Then I spotted there was no sponge on the intake. My heart stopped for a few mins I think. I took the canister to the sink and took out the basket of media and there he was. I just knew he was going to be dead just knew........ so my heart stopped again until he popped up and looked at me like "Dude what took you soo long!!"
I got him and looked over him and I didn't see any cuts or scraps soo my heart started beating again.
He has been fine ever since and alls good. He comes out any time i come near and still eats like a lil piggy!
I have since put a new sponge on the intake one thats made for a fluval edge intake. It stays on alot better then the old one i made. I not really totally sure how the old one came off in the first place.
The plants all seem to be doing good as well. The tiger lilys have exploded like crazy!!!! the other plants seem to be doing okay. I willl see if I can get pics tomorrow of both tanks.
