Uncle had begged me to give him my normans lampeyes..finally gave him 2 begrudgingly... told him about pacific, so thats why he picked em up..and theyre not even the same species. X( He bought 3 of the neon blues and unfortunately, MY lampeye- probably the male has ripped the tails off of the neons..hm. One already died, not sure about the other 2 today but they were not looking too good last night. Never thought of them as aggressive fish but the neons are half the size of him too.

My nano fish seemed okay, Ive always had a problem with some fin loss...and I attributed it to poor water quality...I have a very very very sad pygmy cory with absolutely no tail at all (every other cory is okay)... some minor loss on the clown killies, occasionally some on the lampeyes but they grow back fast. Now Im wondering if its nipping thats causing it. I dont see any other symptoms like fish being lethargic, sickly... just.. bad caudal fins.
The fish at Pacific seemed to be Oryzias celebensis. I googled images of "Oryzias" , & celebensis was the only one with the two black streaks on the tail fin like the ones at Pacific. They didn't look particularly healthy. Win had actual lampeyes. They looked like Norman's lampeyes at first glance, but their bodies were more blue than yellow. Maybe Poropanchax macrophthalmus?

Yipe! Stalker! Wait, are we stalking him or the reverse??

Sigh. I hope my wallaby is okay. Well, he's not mine, but when you hand feed a guy for two days, you tend to think of him as yours. Honestly I know his chances are pretty slim, but he's really cute.

Yeah. It's leaking from the top front. I think it's just that part of the silicone but I'll leave the tank outside to see how much it leaks over night.

It's a 5 gallon reptile tank I believe. The top frame is lower on one side, as if to accommodate a sliding lid. I was going to use this tank to grow some crypts emersed but I might want to use this tank full of water one day. The silicone is a bit thin in some places.

Nah. The front glass is lower on one side so it would look weird.

This should be easy to do. Get a razor blade scraper(the type for removing paint and/or stickers from glass. I like the ones used for removing inspection stickers from car winshields. Scrape all the old silicone from inside the tank. You must remove all of it-sides and bottom as new silicone will not adhere to old silicone. DO NOT DIG THE OLD SILICONE OUT OF THE SEAMS BETWEEN THE GLASS PANES! THIS IS THE PRiMARY SEAL AND IS WHAT HOLDS THE GLASS TOGETHER. Just scrape the old stuff away keeping the blade flat to the glass. When it is all removed wash the tank with white vinegar and water-dry the tank thoroughly. Get blue masking tape and mask off the joints to be siliconed-they don't need to be too wide. Use another tank for reference. Get some GE I silicone in a chaulking tube. The chaulking gun method gives the most control. ONLY USE GE I SILICONE FOR WINDOWS AND DOORS AS IT DOES NOT HAVE AND ALGAECIDES IN IT. BATHROOM CHAULK WILL KILL YOUR FISH. Run the chaulking along all the masked beads at once, it is do or die, do not let the silicone dry and then start again. After the beads are laid, smooth them with a finger dipped in either water or alcohol. Pull tape of immediately. let the tank dy for 24 hours then fill with water to check for leaks. It is easier than it sounds.

What happens if you tell him to join and he tells you he doesn't have any fish tanks? Now that would be awkward.

Oooooh! Jelly!

I haz a sad bc one of my PFRs died. I saw an Amano eating its head.

I think it might have been much older. The batch I bought had some big, thick shrimp ini it.

Happily, the juvies that came in with it are big enough to be visible now.

And I have scud babies!

Ni visible shrimp babies yet.

Berried females have been hiding. Unless they died and I never saw the bodies...

My new yoga students did great tonight! And I have a new a private qi gong student tomorrow!
