Yeah, this is Capone. He's always carrying things around, especially food. But sometimes he gets a hold of one of the larger pieces of green or red gravel that got mixed in there, and just swims around with them in his mouth all flared up. I'm not sure if this is a sign of some normal behavior, or if he's just bored. lol
Anywho, I always get a kick out of this. This is probably the first time I've gotten it on tape, he usually drops whatever he has before I can grab my camera and then wont pick it up again, but this time he picked it back up. My grandma got a kick out of it too.
You can also see my newest molly fry. I have so many. They will have that tank to themselves just as soon as I feel safe moving them again. All the adults were moved to their new home in a 55 gallon tank less than an hour after this was filmed. ^_^ Once my fry are big enough, a few may join them over there until they're ready for new homes. I have far too many to raise them all to store selling size, but I will still be raising quite a few.
Also, yesss, I put a good bit of food in there, listen to what I say in the video. When it comes to peas or algae, I have to put in a good bit and spread it out or they will tear each other apart, literally. ^^; You'd think I never fed them, eh? I'd call my fish spoiled, really. lol It's a bit of extra work, but I only give them 5-10 minutes to eat and then I suck it all out with a turkey baster and do about a 2-5% water change so it doesn't get yucky in there, but nothing big enough to shock them, and it's not a daily thing, they have a variety of different foods I feed them, some just tend to be more sought after. =p
So! Without further adieu, the video. lol And yes, I sound like a dork because I am. xD
