    What boy, all pictured fish are female! They're all females in the 29gal except for a male plakat that never grew into his male behavior from the first batch of fry I raised :D He even submits to the females.

    The male CT was having trouble reaching the surface so he's in a smaller floating "breeder box". I think I might start a new thread for him, he's my first legit rescue. The dumbo girl was in that tank before hand as a quarantine before I added her to the 29gal. She held still and posed for me, too bad the snail on the glass ruined it a bit.

    Just released the 2 new girls after a big water change today, they're spunky and trying to go after everyone else. A split fin here and there but I haven't witnessed an actual show down between them. I'm thinking the koi will end up as boss, but we'll see.

    Oddly enough, I was checking them out a moment ago after lights out. Bettas are fine but the trio of upside down cats are looking less fine. 2 of them are fat and happy, the 3rd is smaller and thinner (male perhaps) and his fins are frayed. I think I spotted a hole in his back, as if one of the other two poked it with a spine. Might grab the net and do some investigating. My guess is they need more hiding spots. For the most part they all favor the wood on the right side of the tank and I've seen them squabble over it before. Perhaps I'll add one of the many caves I have on hand.
