Well, finally got batteries for the camera, and here are the results of tonight's photo shoot. I'm really pleased with the new lights and can finally get some good shots. Enjoy! Full tank shot: Hercule, who is so proud of his breeding stars! Fluffy, who recently laid eggs all over the tank. Jelly Bean and Emma Goldman, who have grown bellies lately The plants are getting established and one of the anubius has a flower! Not a very good shot, but the only one I could get of all 4 together. Four of the five littles, and a great shot of all the equipment in the back ground Glub Glub! Silly fish. Thanks for looking!
This morning I move the littles over to the 55 gallon tank. As suggested by Alistairw, dnalex and Sakura, I took Fluffy out of the tank, did a big water change and moved the decorations around. Then I added the littles. The Goldies were relatively easy to catch, but those minnows are fast and it took a while. Here's a video of them in their new home. Sorry for the quality. I think I need Santa to bring me a better video camera. I gave them a few minutes to get used to things and then I added Fluffy back in. I was worried that Fluffy would chase the littles around. And for the first 30 seconds she did. She went after the littles to see if they were snacks, and even tried to nibble on Jelly Bean. Then Hercule discovered how secksy Fluffy is and started chasing her all over the tank all up in her tail feathers. It was quite bad for a while. Poor Fluffy was swimming fast trying to get away. This is not how I thought it would be! Luckily, by the time I left for work, Hercule had started to calm down. I hope Hercule gives up on the idea before Fluffy is run ragged. Everyone else is calmly exploring the tank. The littles look really pretty in the lights - and Jelly and Emma are a cute as ever. I have left the qt tank up for now in case I need to move someone out of the 55. I hope I don't have to, cuz I'm quite looking forward to only having one tank to care for! Thanks for looking.
