Krib Babies

I actually think I have closer to 100 baby kribs. But it's rather hard to count them.

Josh and Rachel just got axolotls for Josh's birthday, but one of them has fungus on its gills, probably from stress from the big ammonia spike. Have given them some of my filter wool which should hopefully have bacteria in it to break down the ammonia a bit quicker than just letting it happen by itself.

Man I'm tired, and it's only Wednesday :/

Well after a thoroughly sucky day, beginning at 5:37am with godzilla waking me up (damned flipping ftp), upgrading firmware on a production file server raid controller (always a nervous moment, as you never know if the machine will see its hard disks when you're done), finally being able to build an array on aforementioned file server (which wouldn't work previously because the firmware wasn't new enough and the raid manager software didn't want to play), to being completely overwhelmed by the amount of crap I have to juggle in my brain (it overloaded completely at lunch time and refused to play anymore), to feeling grumpy and lonely and unloved all afternoon (nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I think I'll go eat worms), to still being bummed out about losing the two corys (are we there yet?), tonight my kribs brought their babies out to explore the tank.

That's right, I have baby fish! A couple of dozen of them, the size of pin heads. Very exited about finally being a fish mother. This was after visiting Daniel's place last night - they have babies from about five different species of their fish <jealous>

Wonder how many of the babies will survive, and what to feed them etc. Gonna have to do some research methinks.

So yesterday I rearranged the fish. I caught the kribs and put them in the smallest tank from Daniel. I then moved the two black angels back into the big tank. The two white angels attacked the bag ferociously for a while before I released the black ones. They all survived though, and the black ones seem to be much happier back in the big tank. They're no longer sulking on the bottom of the other tank.

So we have:
Tank 1
* four angels
* one betta
* three glass catfish
* one siamensis
Need to get a couple of corys to keep the bottom of the tank clean

Tank 2
* nine neon tetras
* one betta
* two juli corys

Tank 4
* two kribs

Tank 3 is now empty, pending me deciding what to do with it. I'm sure Daniel would have me turn it into a Lake Malawi cichlid tank hehe.
