Goodies On The Way

Just ordered some new yummies for my aqua babies. New Life Spectrum Freshwater Flakes with Garlic. It has tons of nutritious goodies for them; premium grade natural spirulina, spinach, red and green cabbage, peas, broccoli, red pepper, zucchini, tomato, kiwi, apricot, pear, mango, apple, papaya, peach, South Antarctic Krill, herring, seaweed, kelp, and some natural color enhancing ingredients. It also contains a healthy amount of garlic (totally awesome for fish) and Thera A formula that has a mega dose of a natural anti-parasitic ingredient.

Also finally ordered a bottle of Kordon Fish Protector to use when I do their water changes. This helps calm them and eases stress. There’s also Echinacia and vitamin B12, and it’s supposed to help minimize infections. From what I’ve been reading, a lot of the online order only fish sites ship their fish with this stuff added to the bag of water.

I’m really excited about the new fish food though as I’ve read some amazing reviews about it. I’ll post back in a few weeks about this again and let you know if I’m able to see any noticeable differences in my aqua babies.

And… I started another tank. *giggle*

New Family Members

I was finally able to locate a LFS that carried the Congo Tetras, and since these are the hardest to locate of the two that I wanted, I snagged those first. The German Blue Rams are far easier to find, so I will get those in two weeks.

The Congos are now in a medicated (parasite & fungus guard) QT (quarantine tank) sitting on my desk so that I can keep a close eye on them. They are very shy at the moment, but were little piggies at breakfast. Normally new fish don’t eat right away, so I was very happy to see them snarf up the food that I gave them. I forgot to take the frozen cubed Bloodworms out of the freezer last night, so they’ll have to get that treat tomorrow.

Decisions, Decisions

Has it been two weeks already? Yes, it has! It’s time to add another set of fish to my 30 gallon tank. Only problem is that I’ve changed my mind (I’m allowed haha) on the type that I want. I’ve got my eye on both Congo Tetra (there would be 6) and the German Blue Ram (there would be 2 or 3). I’m getting both, just not at the same time. In two weeks I will get the next set of fish.

Here are the ones I want, but can’t make up my mind which to get first.
