OK will start with the ! Rasboras...
They are still in QT but are looking nicer and nicer everyday! They have just about gotten use to being here. They seem to eat everything I put in there. I usually feed them NLS small fish formula that I have crush up. I also feed them Daphnia once a week. The other day I bought them a different brand of food just so they have something different to eat. Its a Omega One food, not sure the specific name of the food but they seem to like it too.






Those are not the best pics soo I took a crappy video too!

Time for updating the Scarlet Badis and the Salt and Pepper cory tank.

Nothing new really has happen here. The female Badis doing good still wont eat anything that doesnt move. The Corys are constantly surface the tank for food it looks like and when they are not they will be laying on the leaves of my plants. Esp. the leaves of my Anubias Coffeefolia











Again crappy pics = crappy video

The puffer's tank I haven't updated in awhile and for the life of me i don't know why I didn't take more then just one pic today of it... I thought I had but apparently didn't.

So here it is...

I did take a video of this tank as well


Excuse the blood curling scream at the end of the video. My daughter got a lil mad cause she couldn't get the lid on a marker.

What's the substrate in the ! Rasbora tank? It looks really interesting...

Thanks so much for sharing the pictures and the videos ! I enjoyed them very much even the scream from your daughter to cute...lol Your a plant guy too I see, I love plants, I have Ancharis, Horrnwort, Water Sprite, and I love my Banana Lilly. Your plants look great and I could tell all your fish really enjoy and appreciate them. I was blown away watching your Puffer he is as awesome as I knew he would be, love him and was surprised that he seemed bigger than I though he would be.

Your right about the tank size I dont think a 5 gallon would be big enough and if I ever got one I would want him to have all the room he needed to swim an explore. I might need to put that idea on the back burner for awhile. Maybe I will try a planted tank with some shrimp for the 5 gallon, oh and I loved so much seeing your shrimp swimming with the puffer that was beyond adorable !

Ohhh yes I love my plants! They make and give the tank a natural feel. The fish do seem to enjoy them as well.

I am glad you can see now why I wouldn't put a Dwarf puffer in a 5 gallon now. He is as big as he is going to get. Just around an inch. He might seem a lil bigger then you had thought but I still lose him from time to time in my tank cause of his size. LoL
If you ever come down Chattanooga way let me know and you can see him in person to get a better idea of his size.

I sure agree with that I am addicted to live plants being in my tank and so is my Betta Perseus he loves them so much that he has even been known to knock the pond snails off them..lol

I feel like they are my back up system in using up the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. I feel so much safer with them in the tank so along with my weekly 50 percent water and using Prime I have so much less worry and of course having my tank cycled, love that BB !

I knew it and was so close in asking where you lived, I could just feel that TN or southern talk in your posts...lol That is awesome and thanks for the invite, I dont do much traveling but if I am ever down your way I would love to stop by and see your fish and tanks and to swoon over your Puffer, to see him in person might be to much for me to handle though I might just kill over, you should see my at my local pet shop they have been getting in some new fish, no Puffers but they have a couple of Oscars I go nuts for , I stand there and talk to them and they really seem to enjoy interacting with me, now maybe the people around might think I am abit crazy but I just smile at them and try to act or normal as possible...lol

LoL. can't mistake southern ppl even in text apparently!
I don't travel very much at all either but I have gone to Knoxville a couple if times to visit the fish stores there. I don't actually live in Chattanooga but about 30 miles northeast of it and about 90miles south of Knoxville. I don't have any good fish stores here. One local one that's hit or miss sometimes on what they got. So I have to travel to get anything or order it.
The last fish store I went to in Knoxville was Aquarium. Its nicer then anything near me!

OOOH! I didn't realize you two lived so close! That's awesome!!!

Haha, John - it sounds like my house. . . minus the other three! Tell her I feel her pain, those marker lids can be a BEAST. Kudos to her for bothering to put them back on, though. . . wonder where she got that temper from. Not your wife, surely?!! ;)

The tanks, the fish, the pics, the vids. . . *SWOONS*

Everything looks just wonderful! The !Rassies are doing so WELL! I'm so happy about them. :) Can't wait to see them into their home tank and thriving. That tank - all of your tanks - are just gorgeous!!! <3
