I did some Googling and the black tetras are black Neon tetras. They’re pretty flashy for not having bright colors, which means I can really enjoy them without Lola feeling threatened by them.
Since my tank is mostly stocked now I went ahead and ordered some stuff for the boys. A new bed for Tejony, toys, treats, and a can of freeze dried brine shrimp for the fishes.
I have another bag nearly filled with donations and I’m hoping to finish filling it plus a second bag over the weekend. I’d also like to get some crafting done today but I dunno about that… Lol.
I ended up with a 29 gallon instead of a 20 long- same footprint but a bit taller. Lola still hates the guppies but not as aggressively now that there’s a lot more space. I did lose one (never did see the body) but the other two are doing well. I’ve also added 8 zebra danios and 6 black tetras. There’s also a black mystery snail and a gold inca snail. I’ve added more plants too which I hope take off and grow like mad. I might add a bristlenose pleco if I can find one but that should be about it.
I destashed and donated 4 bags of craft supplies, finished crafts, and books, plus the two small acrylic tanks and all their accessories. That let me free up quite a bit of space so I could clean up a bit more. I have a few boxes to break down and take out still, plus a comic book box that housed sewing patterns that I can unfold and store in the closet.
Last week on the 5th I started class. BIOSCI100. Its mostly review for me so far but its fun. Not too challenging but we’ll see how I do on the first exam. I still need to find a partner for the presentation we have to give and choose a topic. I have a few ideas but gotta find a partner first.
After posting a thread querying about Hermit Crabs, which I decided are not for me for a variety of reasons, I decided to plant my tank, and get pretty snails and shrimp. The shrimp are being picked out in a few days, but the snails are thriving! They have plants and algae & zucchini wafers to nosh on.
And Omg! I had no idea they were going to be so much fun!
I have 1 nerite snail and 4 mystery snails (two gold, one blue, one purple) and they’re way more entertaining than I ever would have thought!
Anyone else a fan of these guys?
When I go to pick out my shrimp, I plan on picking up more plants, plus a few pretty female bettas.
I hope you like the videos – they’re so fun!
