Okay... so. After falling out of doing this for a long time, I have developed a new growth tracking plan! This is necessitated by the fact that I now have three fish and cannot do the worms on the side of the tank thing anymore.

I rigged up a grid on the outside of a 2.5 gallon I had laying around. Here are some shots! (My fishes were not too happy with this process; much of this might've had to do with them being in a bucket for a few hours prior, because I was putting substrate in their tank. We shall see how this goes next time.)

I also weighed the little guys while I was at it. And the big guy. :)

Peanut: 35 grams, 3.25 inches.

Since its only been a few weeks since the last pictures I posted of the Nut, he looks pretty much the same as he did then. :) His largeness does still surprise me, though!

I post tank shots pretty often, Haley. :D I'm sure there will be more soon.

So the only one who did any growing is Macadamia. Maybe I need to feed more. I am not positive I'm accustomed to feeding three fish rather than just the one... :D

I have noticed that the overhead shots are much more accurate for measuring purposes. Maybe it's the lack of distortion from a pane of glass between the water and the camera? I still think the side shots are good, though, for overall body appearance monitoring.

Such a brilliant idea to measure your fish. I might actually steel your ruler idea. I don't have a spare tank. I will definitely be following your blog. You have beautiful fish . And I like the names lol
