Just got in from work, went straight into the kitchen to boil some peas for their dinner before checking on them, but I don’t think they’ll be having any dinner tonight - think their bellies are already full. 

Hector is busy releasing eggs!!

Everyone is having a good munch, even Hector who is releasing then spinning round to gobble them up :teehee

LolI love when they do that, it's so funny to watch them release eggs and then turn around and be like "oh food!"

I know! Daft head :huh:

The lights went off about 1.5hr ago - Hector was still at it & everyone was still having a feast. 

Was I right not to feed them or should I just carry on as normal? I didn’t want them to be over fed.

I wouldn't worry about one day  not feeding. :)

Yeah, figured they'd be fine for a day or so.

Woke this morning to Pip chasing Pepper. Must be her turn to drop some eggs today. It looks really funny - Pip is dwarfed by Pepper but it isn't putting him off one little bit. Nice to actually know their sexes. Guess it's eggs for dinner again! :teehee

And I have flowers on all my anubias :) Here's one that opened up last night.

Just thought I'd share these pics of Hector - she's lost so much of her black colouring since I brought her home eight weeks ago. It's almost completely gone from her dorsal now. I knew it was to be expected, but I didn't think it would happen so quick! I'd like to think her tail will stay stripey, but I won't hold my breath. That too has changed quite a bit already.

They’re cute!  The tank looks much happier without just piggy in there alone :)

Hi Dawn :hi

I’m just doing my WC - their first experience of one in the main tank. So far all ok.

Had to keep my beady eye on Pip as he’s small enough to get sucked up the gravel vac. He was quite curious about it, but no issues. 

Parameters have remained stable all week, so pretty happy about that ☺️ Nitrates rose but that’s to be expected & it wasn’t so high to cause concern. 

Have put a fresh nitrate filter on my water supply so they should come down quite a lot following the WC.

lololololol!!!  "Piggyy"  
 

I forgot how stranger fishowners are, no insult meant.  They name their fish funny names and some chemical magic happens to biological systems where each gets really obsessed.  Oh, how I've missed you guys.  I've found my people, I think.

 

Wonderful images; that fat cat isn't full of fish, is it?

Yep. I’m Amy (too) and I’m obsessed by my weirdly named squishy heads! There, I said it!

I think you mean Fimble (tabby & white - the other is Midge) and her belly is probably full of tuna or salmon but just the tinned variety. Although when we had a pond we did catch her munching on a ghost koi. She’s never been bothered by fish in tanks though, she just likes drinking out the tanks.
