the recent fudging up is with my crowntail moriarty
honestly im a mess, hes a mess, we’re a mess
i’m working on finding a solution for this one tank (cuz everyone else is doin really well, so thats a positive)…possibly going to need to rehome some snails :T
moriarty has fin rot and im having a hard time getting ammonia to go down (.25ppm last night) and it was all good and 0s before but then it wasnt. and i thought it was just bacterial fin rot not caused by bad water quality cuz i’d been keeping up with weekly (shooting for 2x a week, but at LEAST doing 1x a week of 50-75% wc) water changes and siphoning and the anubias has been growing great (like 2 new leaves unfurled this past week >w<) and ive got to do some more research on
- whether or not to medicate with the kanaplex thats coming this week
- to rehome the snails (which cuts the bioload by like 80% i swear. the snails love snacking on the driftwood and they just poop 24/7/365 and its just way too much for me to keep up with honestly…like they poop more than any of my other snails cuz theyre constantly eating really dense stuff) and then go crazy with water changes for a week or two and then try kanaplex if it doesnt get any better
so feel free to leave me some advice on that ^^^ if ya like
also idk how water changes + medication work ._. so i’ll probably be asking around about that as well >.>
i feel like day-1-fishkeeper-me rn tbh…i have done a 60% wc today and i’m going to be doing daily testing on his tank (yay fish science!) to MAKE SURE ammonia stays at 0 cuz weekly testing just aint cuttin it with anymore.
on a good note tho, bubbles’s and triton’s tanks are both at 0/0/<10, triton has made a lil more tail regrowth (his edges are looking clear and smooth instead of raggedy!) and bubbles just gets prettier by the day (dont tell the boys but i think she’s my curent fave <3 she’s just got this really vibrant red and turqoise coloring and her rays are lookin good and she’s just like 100% sass).
What I absolutely love about your art style is their lively facial expressions! Could you please show us a tutorial on how to draw them?
