I was so upset that I left the tank untended for about a year. Maybe longer.
I've repopulated it now with Mollies. Here's a shot of them for you. I call it "Mollies in Motion."
In honor of Matt
Yeah, it's pretty much impossible for me to photograph them, so I made some videos for you.
This first video shows the creamsicle molly, mickey mouse platy, and swordtail platy.
The second video shows the rainbow shark, balloon molly, the other fish, and - in the back - a dalmatian molly named Perdie.
So what's the problem, you ask? This is the problem:
Pongo, the other dalmatian molly, is in time out. Several fish have died recently, been replaced, and died again. I couldn't figure out why. The water was fine, the food was fine. The snail population healthy. The algae count low. Today, one of the balloon mollies finally stood up to him, and I realized what the problem is. It's him.
Mean, mean, MEAN little Pongo.
Perdie misses him, but if he's going to insist on being a brute, he's gonna have to continue to sit in his time-out jar in the corner of the tank. I just hope he learns his lesson.
