hoo hum a break from the fun.
Setting up new tanks, updating my stocking list over Christmas, building stands, filling plastic pans, then the albino hoard has consumed my tanking time and forum posts. Only three pages in this string started in July '09 and the plec's took over half way through the second page
(I kno,,, whaz up wit dat???) I'm an angel kinda guy. (fish anyway)
The pics are ugly.
The pics are out of focus.
The water levels low (sumps off).
Food floating everywhere.
Yeah it looks nasty but oh well.
Black fish don't photograph any better then aquariums with mirrored backings. Kinda getting a theme here? Nothing easy.
I was on a 911 mission.
Had to save a fish.
This tank thread was all about MTS, plants, angels and DIY on a used tank before the plec's took over and is once again.
My Colorado DD blacks were 2F, 6M adults until the last spawn when one sub male was beaten really bad and I thought for sure was going to lose an eye. Rehab in the quarantine tank for several months and he kept his eye YIPPIE! But I didn't put him back in the 110g.
Tonight it was happening again. I shut down the pump because the fish are conditioned to eat by this pattern.
I needed to draw the current losers outta the weeds.
The current site is the right side weir.
The left side where I dropped the food will be a 'no fish zone' tomorrow night at the latest because the second female is bowling ball round too with her tube dropped. It was a double wammy tonight. Pairs on both ends and the odd fellows caught in the middle being beaten back and forth.
Full tank shot
The rehab male and the guy with the case of road rash are out of the pan and into the fire though. Without the new tanks being ready they were plopped into,,,,, The "B"
This 75g tank is all unpaired females, 6 of em
And the gold veil and smoky veil are both real QUEEN B's
Anyhoot back to the shredded fins and feeding other fish, testing water, playing with the wife, kicking the kid and putting the dog to bed. ummm better slow down
