Yesterday my husband treated me to a road trip to Portland for my b'day, to visit The Wet Spot fish store.
Came home with 12 rasbora maculatus (supposed to be 10), 5 danio erythromicrons (gorgeous!), 5 pygmy cories and 2 bee shrimp.
I'm feeling like I may have overstocked... we'll keep a close eye on the water parameters. Currently, the conditions are perfect for the bee shrimp with soft, acidic water (about 6.5) and 72 F. It's a little acidic and cool for the danios, but I think they can adjust easier than the shrimp. The others are all within their range of comfort.
Everyone is doing great today. The rassys, danios and pygmys have been shoaling together, playing off and on in the current from the lily. Since yesterday, the danios have begun schooling more together, being fond of the dhg patch. Based on the danios coloring, I think I have two males, and three females. The corys are adorable when they school together.
This is what my kitty thinks...
Hoping to take better pictures soon! They freaked when I added a black cardstock to the back, so they'll need some more time to adjust.
Just excited to finally have something moving in my tank that isn't the scud.
