Corben's saltwater journel/journey

I thought keeping a journal on my saltwater experience and everything I noticed while caring for my fishes.

I'll probably post something new at least once a week, I'm going to try to upload pictures now and then too.


So to start it's day 4 since I got my 2 swordtails and my leopard Cory. My roommate keeps making fun of me because I gave them all such 'creative' names lol
I call my male swordtail QuickSilver the lightning fish (obviously QuickSilver for short ) because he is mainly silver white with a yellow tail and really fast. He likes to patrol the tank n play bubble games with the bubblers .
Then Sassy the goldeen, because she is spirited and energetic. She likes to relax in the cluttered most part of the tank and play with the bubbles as well.
Finally our bottom feeder Rocky. He zips about the tank during feeding time.

All 3 enjoy the algae cucumber wayfers I put it, I make sure to feed them flakes 3x a day and when they get peckish in between they like to eat the wayfer. I have to put a new wayfer every 2 days so far lol

I knew about male swordtails pestering females, n QuickSilver did just that for the first 2 days, now the 2 enjoy each others company n like to n be close with one another, it's cute lol

I suppose that's it for now, I'll update this later, wish me luck. :3

Saltwater journey? These sound like fish that you care for very much , but are they not fresh water fish? And whereabouts did you find cucumber waffers, did you make them yourself?

N the cucumber algae wafers were bought at Wal-Mart.
