I feel very guilty!
You’re Right… I am getting lazy with my fishes, it is really bad.
Usually I check my fishes right before I go to work in the morning and I check them again when I get home after work. Especially when I see them in the evening without thinking about them for 6-8 hours, it’s pretty refreshing to just seeing them. Unless.. if I have a fish followed the light to heaven while I’m gone.
I just got home about 10 min ago and I found out I only have FIVE 2 months old fry in my fry tank. And 1 dead fish who left his body without fishy soul! And he was one of 2 alive bullies. So right now I only have 1 bully fish.. 😦
It is time to go to Fish Market this weekend for sure. I can’t stand watching sad, empty fish tank anymore..!
By the way, I gotta show you 2 months old fishes soon. They’re pretty amazing. It’s kind of silly thing to say but you can see their poops…. now their poops are visible which is awesome for me as I’ve been watching them from the beginning. They were so small like 1mm or something. And their poops are 1mm.. Wow.. I can’t believe I’m writing about my fish pooping..
I will be back with some more new stories next time for sure! 🙂
Have a good week, everyone!
It’s been a while. I am sorry.
I’ve been very busy with my new job and pretty much I passed out after work for 2 weeks. So I couldn’t really have chance to checking my blog. 😦
At the moment, I only have 1 adult Red Mickey Mouse Coral Platy. – Male. He owns the tank!! By himself!
And the fry, the 9 survivors. I really don’t understand and don’t know what happened while I was at work, but right now I only have 5 alive fry. Sadly, 2 of bully brothers died mysteriously. Maybe they were the terrible bullies back in their ‘golden age’.
I was planning to buy new fishes last time I wrote but I couldn’t go to fish market. I might really go this saturday but we will see. Cause it’s been really a LONG week for me and I just want to stay in and if it’s possible, I just want to order pizza and be super lazy. Though I don’t think this being lazy plan wouldn’t really work since my weekend is now really precious from the work so I probably try to spend every second to be meaningful or.. something better than just sleeping!
Well, I will keep you posted. Hopefully I can come back with more interesting stories like July! 😀
We're the '9 Survivors!'
I thought that at this point, I need some ‘proof’ of my nine survivors after all those lame posts about dying fishes. So here you go! :p
It’s funny the way they stare at me every time I try to take their pictures with my camera. Maybe it is just a coincidence but I start to thinking that MAYBE they know when I take a picture and some of fishes who have model soul in their dark mind, they just can’t help themselves! Put their face against to the fish tank wall!! – to make me get their best shot! Hehe..
I feel bad that I missed some days to write a post on my blog!
There was nothing special for the past few days because I was writing about my fishes dying pretty much 3 – 4 times straight. Nothing fancy.. just.. dead fishes..
But good news is, seems like the madness has gone now! Finally!
Today, 9 fry look prettier than ever (to me at least) and 2 adult fishes look.. pretty ‘okay’. I know I have a couple of fans.. of Bullies. And to my surprised, 4 bullies are still on the VIP list!! 🙂 I guess they’re naturally strong. I’m really glad that they’re still alive!
Anyway, this week is actually very very special week to me. I am starting a new job tomorrow. And I am hoping that I will be very very busy during the week and have lots of awesome time on weekends. I even thought about taking some of fry to work. Having a little aquarium on my work desk but since now I only have 9 of them, I might go to the fish market this weekend to buy some new friends to fill up my fish tank at home first.
I will try to post everyday if I can! 🙂
Have a good week!
Now it is getting hard to make everybody healthy and ‘ALIVE’.
My little Mickey Mouse Platy fry’s are dying. The 2 adult fishes are still swimming, eating and alive. When I relieved and happy about the fact that I still have the ‘master hand’ of keeping my fishes, my fry army raised their hands and said,
Hey, we’re dying! 🙂 What’s up?!
I guess every time when you change the water, you can’t really avoid not killing anyone. But this is pretty bad if you consider that now I’ve been keeping my fry for over 1 month and a half, now they just start dying??!! Oh No! It’s really a bad news.
Last week, I counted and I had 38 fry. I don’t really like brag about the number of fishes that I have, but honestly, it was my first time to have fry more than 10 days, keeping them alive, so I was proud of the fact that I ‘saved’ 38 fry out of 120 after a month of time. But right now, I only have 14 fry in my fry tank! Can you believe it!!! 😦
I am pretty sure that I won’t have any baby fishes in my adult tank anymore since I only have 2 female fishes and they’re pretty sick now.
It’s terrible that I am currently thinking about the new fishes (already!) just in case I lose every fish I have now. I was thinking of taking few of my fry to my work. I saved a couple of glass bottles to keep them but well, I don’t think it’s a good idea anymore.
Two adult fishes are still alive! And seems like they might could survive from this fungus illness. So I decided to try some treatments for them. Sea Salt!
Mmmm~~ Sea Salt!
Yes, Sea Salt. It’s actually used by a lot of fish people when their fishes got some problem with water quality, illness like fungus, white spot, etc. So I am going to try sea salt! I need to buy one first. Today Hong Kong is very very rainy, I kind of like the weather today. 🙂
So let’s get some salt today! I will post more soon.
YAY! It’s saturday! 🙂
I changed the whole water of the adult tank. 4 survivors are now in the temporary water box. Hopefully I could make them feel better with fresh water later this afternoon.
I’ll keep you posted! 🙂
Happy Weekend, everybody!
