I was feeding my ADFs some freeze dried bloodworms (soaked overnight to prevent digestive issues), and they both grabbed onto the same worm and started playing tug-a-war with it, it was adorable.

Another random thought concerning my ADFs, I think one is carrying eggs. It’s gotten pretty round lately and I realized the other ADF is a male, so it kinda adds up. I still haven’t decided what I’d do with the eggs. I might let the parents eat some and just save a couple to raise, but I’m not 100% sure where to put a few more ADFs yet. we’ll see.

May as well just grab a caffeine free soda at that point lol
Or a nice cup of herbal tea, if something hot is preferable.

I’m never getting Kuhli loaches again... two dead in the first two days after getting them home. They are stressed little freaks zipping all over the place and I don’t know what to do. My perimeters are perfect. I spent $20 on this school of adorable fish and I was so excited... didn’t work out so well.

doing another waterchange today. Hopefully something helps.

I haven’t posted here in a while lol. Is there anything significant I missed?

My random though is that I haven’t seen spiders in a really long time... Where did they all go? :confused:

I haven’t seen any in a while either, unless you count the occasional cellar spider. I don’t know where they all went! I miss them!

fun fact, all spiders you see in your house were already living inside your walls or in the foundation of your house, breeding. and less than 5 percent actually venture from outside to inside.

sorry to disturb you, I try not to think about it too often.

I always get happy when I see a new egg sac. It’s the next generation of my little dark corner buddies!

Perhaps this is true but how do you tell which is which ?

My new betta’s fins are healing perfectly. He’s so pretty. I love him more and more every day. And he’s sooooo cute!

(I got a new betta with some bad fin rot, but after a few days of TLC his fins already started healing, and now they are beautiful)

I don't feed fish when I'm hungry, because I prioritize my hunger over theirs and will eat first. Endotherm feeding is a more urgent bussiness than that of the ectotherms, that's just biology.

So it is not very useful information since we cannot identify which is which

eww no lol. I can never let my dog down there, because he hunts down the dead spider bodies like they are potato chips.

What happened to the smilies? Are they completely gone now or am I just not seeing them? I can still write them out, but I don't see them on the tool bar.

Tbh I'm not suprised lol. Daddy long legs seem to appear out of nowhere. I think the majority of actual spiders come from my plants though. I found 4 baby spiders in my mini Christmas tree lol. But who knows, many there's more spiders in my walls than I can imagine :eek:

I think something happened yesterday to the smileys. I'm sure it will get fixed at some point.

That’s good. You don’t want to know what would happen if you forgot how to do bananas...

What do people have against fish bowls? (the big pretty planted ones not those tiny ones) I don’t understand why people hate them so much
Especially fb, reddit, and other social media groups. People who post about their fish bowls on there are BRAVE lol

I think its because most people don't know how to properly maintain a bowl. Plus there are those myths out there about bettas can live in a vase and eat the roots of a plant type things.

Part of the reason is because most internet social platforms attract a large amount of trolls. Also, a lot of people here are often a bit more open to ideas different than their own as they may be actually seeking new ideas themselves.

Yeah probably, I explain how bowls should love set up and even giving them articles about it, people still have something against them :confused: I guess it’s also because there’s not much info about them online besides them being bad. Oh well.

I’m planning on setting up a bowl as well! I found a 10 gallon one online for a decent price. I’m definitely making it planted and I’m thinking of keeping pea puffers in it (I’m still trying to figure out if they would do well in a bowl though). And I agree, bowls are not great for beginners and movies who put fish in bowls always bother me lol
