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! 😀
I am doing good. The fishes are doing great too! 🙂
Btw, I forgot to talk about my recent loss. Last week, when I cleaned my fry tank filter, I found several dead fry in there. And I realized the filter was a bit strong for them. After I cleaned the tank and put new water, I thought that it would be okay to turn my filter like level 2 out of level 50…. But I guess it was still a bit too much for them. I couldn’t really count the dead body because I might lost of track of them since I found out later. I think I lost at least 5-8 fry. 😦
Anyway, everyone seems doing alright. Most of them look so obvious that they’ve been growing a lot. I mean, they’re still like 0.5cm but it is amazing watching them growing up. I wonder if they know who their real siblings are..
I’ve been asking myself about this for days now. As far as I know, only less than 10 fry died recently. But still, I should have around 100 fry in my fry tank. However, I don’t really see that I have 100 fry. It only looks like I have 50 or so. I’ve also asked my boyfriend but he said it’s more than 50 but he’s not sure about it. Now they’re kind of big so I can count if I want but it’s difficult to take them a picture all together clearly. They move too fast. I read this article one day. It’s about people who love tropical fish. So they have this step of becoming a real tropical fish lover.
Fish tank -> Buy fishes -> Buy bigger/better tank -> Buy soils, equipment, decorations -> Buy expensive fishes -> Buy bigger/better tank -> Buy a better camera > Buy ….
So It’s like.. buying stuffs.. repeatedly and endlessly. I think I skipped ‘buy a bigger/better tank’ part and jumped to “buy a better camera”. I am on that stage but I probably can buy a new camera 2-3 years later. :p I should just focus on not ‘killing’ my fishes. Hehe..!
Anyway.. another week started!
