I checked my calender this morning and the 30th marks 1 year since I got my silvers! I thought that day was a little later.
For those who hasn't followed since the very beginning; I started off with 7 silvers. 1 DOA and the others just itching to get into the tank. They came to me pea sized.

The day I got them


6 months in


Well, I guess you're wondering what happened to the other 3? Well, I got a school of 12 rummy nose tetras. Fell in love with them and got 12 more! Tank crashed and everyone got ich. Someone told me to give my angels a salt dip. Well, after that, I'll never deal with salt ever again. The salt took 1 of my angels and the other's fell to ich. The ich I had was heat resistant and after a week, it wasn't budging. Kordon Rid Ich+ brought down the ich in my tank.

I'm working on getting current pictures of my 3 silvers. I'd like to get 1 with all 3 together. lol. They're about silver dollar sized now

Sorry to hear that 3 of your angels passed away!!! :(

But the fish you have nice are really pretty and I love your tank! :D

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

Thank you. I was really bummed to have lost half of my silvers. But the silver-lining to losing them was I was able to rescue the pearlscale smokey, blue marble and get my dream kio!
I may also have the chance to get either a blue platinum veil or a group of cories.
