Hey I'm just checking in again. I don't think I have been on for a couple of months now. Life has been really busy. I have a crazy school schedule and I have a baby due in April. I know I mentioned before that I have a 55 gallon but without getting into details I got rid of all the fish and started over. The tank was in the babies room and needed to be moved and the room needed to be painted. I gave my fish to the LFS
. They actually gave me store credit, almost 100 dollars worth for them. That was nice because I just wanted my fish to have a good home...
On to the babies...
If you guys don't remember I had a 29 gallon with some neons and cardinal tetras and then some guppies and platties. For my clean up crew I got some ghost shrimp.
Well I had babies in the first few days from the guppies and then soon with the platties. I lost a platty and 2 guppies and go figure they well the only ones I bought from Petco. I normally don't go there but I wanted some different "blood" so there isn't as much inbreeding.
Well I got to the point where I had quite a few babies and moved them to a 20 gallon. Since then I have got my 55 up and running and put the babies up there. As of right now my 55 has about 35 guppies/platties. It is so much fun. A lot of different colors and sizes. I got a couple more fish from petco but I also have a gift card from another LFS
that I am going to get more fresh blood from.
But that's not all!
I bought around 6 or 7 ghost shrimp because they die quickly and they are hard to see with all the hiding places in my tank. Well at the moment I can count 4 ghost shrimp that are around 2 inches long (Huge, I know) and today I noticed 2 ghost shrimp that are about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch long. I haven't got shrimp for a couple of months...that leaves only 1 explaination...My Ghosts are breeding.
And I also bought some Red Cherry Shimp. I have 4 of them. 2 males and 2 females. Well big mama cherry shrimp is laying eggs as we speak.
I also have a snail that lays eggs, but they don't hatch.
Basically in my 29 down here I have baby guppies, platties, ghost shrimp and hopefully some cherry shrimp.
So many babies in this house!
