I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

They have been together since the beginning except the rams. They were added about 4-5 months ago. No changes other than removed a large ship decoration.

You might want to keep an eye on the Jack Dempsey to see if he is bullying the other fish. Other than something toxic getting into the tank, that's all I can think of for now.

Last bloodfin was dead this am. Guess the little booger should have let me catch him and move him to other tank. Well guess that means it is time to move the EBJD and drain the tank. I don't think the EBJD was bullying the others he is very docile. Even could be considered lazy. He won't even eat the baby feeder guppies. If he has to chase it then it isn't worth eating. Lol
