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!
4 Bullies stuck in the breeding box!
Do you remember my 4 bully fishes? Like you see the picture above, they were stuck in the little breeding box inside of fry tank. My fry tank is really small so it was a bit harsh for bullies but hey, they are bullies! They deserved it and the rest of fry deserve to be protected..
This morning, I realized maybe… MAYBE.. it’s time to loosen up for a little bit for my bullies and I had quite some time to exam their behavior – Bad guy behavior. And I decided to give them another chance to join the rest of the gang. When the bully attack happened, the little red fry was all alone and they were 4 of them. And now.. if these bullies want to do some little swimmy-babish fighting with others, it’s going to be 4 vs. more than 100, so I think this time, it’ll be okay. So far, they seem doing alright. You can easily find bullies among those 100 because they’ve been growing a lot these days! They’re still small and cute but really, growing fast! Now I’m feeding them 2~3 times a day.
Welcome to the Club!
The white one is one of bullies. Platinum(Blue) Mickey Mouse Platy! 🙂
4 Bullies eating food
I failed to record a video of my fry’s dinner moment. It was a bit harder than I thought. So I just decided to take a picture instead. Maybe I’ll get a good video next time! 🙂
My fry army is doing well. I saw one of them died this morning but everyone seems very healthy so far. Here is my fry tank I set up yesterday.

The reason I have another small breeding box in the fry tank is, I have 2-3 weeks old – 4 platinum mickey mouse platy. They’re just a little bit bigger.. than the new-born fry so you might think it is weird to have a safe box for 4 of them. But, actually it is for my rest of little ones.
I made a terrible mistake the other day. I put new-born fry into the same place where those 4 bullies were. As soon as the little one started swimming they attacked her/he and little one died in 1 min. It was very shocking scene and sadly, I couldn’t really catch that little creature when she/he was in trouble so she/he ended up dying because of my fault and 4 ignorant bullies. I bet they thought it was a food or something! Ever since then, I try not to care for them too much because of that incident but after all, they’re.. fishes.. So I am trying to move on. Hehe! :p Sounds so silly…
So, I still need to have a breeding box to prevent innocent fry dying. Too bad for 4 bullies though. They need to live there for a while unless I have a bigger tank and I can keep them there.
Here we are, let me introduce you the 4 Bullies!
4 Bullies - Platinum Mickey Mouse Platy
I am going to record a video of them eating food tomorrow. They’re mean to their younger siblings but… still cute!! 🙂
As you can see, my red mickey mouse platies are doing so well. They’re swimming here and there. They even sit on the sponge part of my filter! Those are lazy ones I bet.. “I’m a fish but I don’t care, I want to sit.”
Until another pregnancy party going, I got nothing to do with them except feeding them and watching them. It’s going to be a boring month but I am so excited to see them grow! 🙂
