  11. Harvey forgot to be a dog today and climbed a tree to have a look inside a friends possum box. Only catch was that he didn't have a plan to get back down, so howled until we found a ladder to rescue him...

      Here I am, no dogs do not and can not climb trees.

      This ninja stands corrected.

      He was trying to be a drop dog. Gotta watch the mini foxies, they are good jumpers and, as I found out - climbers...

      We have a Jack Russell terrier, who we suspect is crossed with a mini foxie (we are his 4th owners).

      For such a small thing, he can jump HIGH. Really have to watch when we are holding food that he doesn't jump up and nap it off us!!

  12. Heckle and Jeckle have changed overnight from peaceful synchronized swimmers to a tag team killing squad. I just found a dead fry with obvious battle wounds and caught the little buggars attacking another. Poor thing now only has 1 ray of dorsal left. The killer twins have been jarred!

      Maybe you could put them in their own tank (if you have one to spare) and watch them carefully. Though I would be worried that sooner or later they would be "big Bettas" and not like each other at all.

      I had two females like H&J, they got really depressed when they were apart. I thought it kinda creepy, so slowly weened them apart, and I'm glad I did as one was killed by a male. At least H&J can see each other, that ought to count as something.

      LOL... I didn't want to go to the tank one day and discover they had turned on one another. Besides, this means they will grow with pristine finnage... Sorry Sarah, tank space is pretty tight at the moment, so coke bottle torture chambers it is until they get bigger...

      Too bad. They'll just have to suffer. :P

  13. Hmm... Dreading my winter power bill. Have jumped from 3 heated tanks to 8...

    1. shadoh

      shadoh

      Not really. Fish are spread between 3 rooms in 2 seperate buildings. The fry are in the main house in a spare room, so can shut that off. I plan to try and insulate all tanks on 3 sides and top with polystyrene...

      I know what you mean Jarrod, i have four tanks with lighting and heaters and my partners reef tanks got a huge massive light thats on 10 hrs a day plus a constant heater and all the other goodies in the sump running plus the normal house power urgh

  16. i have to ask - did you have any part in choosing the music for the show entrant vids being uploaded to someone's channel?

    Ummm... no... *Heads over to Jodis Channel....

  17. It's pretty sad when you are dreaming that you are at the computer looking at bettas on aquabid...

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      Bwhaha.. I had a dream the other week that I had an Oscar, it was with my female Bettas and they were picking on it so I had to remove him. Anyways, he was floating inside a Chinese container, and when I got up I went to put him into another tank so the girls would stop bulling him (yes, the Oscar). Then I realized I didn't own an Oscar.. :P

  18. Jarred up Busman's fish to take home and she dropped a bellyful of eggs! Grrr...

  19. Just finished a hectic week at work. Time to play with the fish! I am currently building an overhanging barracks for the jarred fry out of plastic mesh...

      That sucks mate. How long till next shipment? How goes all your fish anyway mate? I hope all is well. ;)

    3. shadoh

      All is well here mate. New fry in the spawn tank, new imports on the way. They ones that were held up will probably get here in just over a month...

    4. Hood

      Hood

      Good to here you fry in the tank mate!

      So once you finally get your new imports, how long will it have actually been waiting now? I 'spose the wait will make it all the more worthwhile, 'eh?

  21. Just spent 2 hours trying to find which females have been shredding their fellow sisters fins. Discovered 2 males, just starting to sprout hiding in the turrets of the castle. Some of these are taking forever to mature. I thought I only had girls left in the juvie tank...

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      What a shame.

      I really thought it was that pastel boy. Hope you caught them all now.

    2. shadoh

      shadoh

      Just caught a 3rd. THe only thing that makes them stand out is their long ventrals, which they kept hidden by keeping them tucked up. :) I know their game now...

  22. Just when I thought I didn't have any fish left from my Jewel Box Spawn, out swims a short tailed male I have never seen before from the depths of the castle in the growout tank! He's a grizzled sky blue/purple. I am sure I can pair him up with just about any of his sisters and get some nice fry! I am so happy right now - off to clean out the spawn tank and start on F1. Will call this lot the Sky Jewels : )

      Matt_95
