    Looks great! I wish I could get clear photos like you. My fry are just awful about being seen. Only saw two 1/4 inch juvies last night! Didn't know they were there lol. Mine are hiding in the mulm and the absolute jungle in the tank.

    Hi all. It's nice to be back. October and November were pretty sucky healthwise and I didn't keep up with anything. Hopefully things are back on track and my fingers will work to type without too many errors I don't catch. The okees are doing well. It seems I've been having babies for a while...

    That fight is so right lol. I think mine got into a tussle while I was away as one has a slight irregularity in the fin profile. Other than that, they are doing well, went after the grindal worms better today than I have seen them but I wasn't home to feed sat so they were a bit hungry. Maybe...

    Well, wouldn't be temp or ph I wouldn't think. He's been fine for two weeks or so. I'd figure either he got an injury that developed an infection, or had something when you got him. I'm so sorry. If you need, I can send another male, I got bunches of them lol

    Thanks everybody. It was quite a feat, my kids. Three birthed, two fostered, the niece and nephews, all the friends they brought, of which I have kept a few for my own lol. My house was the one that was always kid friendly, and they all knew that I would "Momma" them down to behavior...

    It seemed a good time was had by all. They wanted a small wedding with a limited guest list and this venue did it lol. The hot dogs and brats were almost all eaten, as were the salted caramel smores. There was some beer left, and all the liquor had some leftovers. No one fell down the hill...

    The cabin sits on a ledge we carved out of the hill, there is a steep treed slope down to the bottom where we camp. And the hill continues on up on the left of the cabin. This is the only clearing on the ledge.

    ok, fb is DeAnn Foster, in KY. See my timeline for the few I have up. Yeah, some of mine will eat frozen, others won't. But when I put a chunk in there, they all seem to be gone the next morning, whether it is the snails or the sunnys "grazing" i dunno.
