Firestorm8215 created the topic: Knucklehead & Lily Update 7/1/13

Knucklehead and Lily are taking well to their new home. Actually cant quite believe the change in their behavior.
He is way more relaxed and enjoys stretching his fins , and Lily after about a day of hiding realized that he no longer wants to ride her butt any time she is out , so she has been out all the time.
So here are a few new pics of them.

Actually starting of with Dexter. He apparently now thinks he is the guardian of the tank and fish now , and prefers to spend his time on the step stool in front of the tank...



A few pics of Lily. She is growing nicely , and I hope having her in the big tank now will speed up her growth even more.







Now Knucklehead. He is still enjoying his " teenage years " , but at this point has not taken to tearing apart this tank yet. Most of the time he stares at the back of the tank , letting the water coming off the filter run over his back. Maybe he is missing his background. Will see what I can wrestle up this weekend.





And one last pic of them of one of their slow lazy chases that no longer last more than 2 seconds...




So thanks for checking out the pics. I know I still have quite a bit of work to do to the tank , but my main focus was getting it set up to move them into the bigger tank. After all...most of our tanks are a constant work in progress...

Thanks Eddie. Its been a long time and rough road , but sometimes you just gotta be patient and let things fall into place. If its meant to be it will always work out at some point.
They are getting along better then ever , and its nice to see Lily out all the time.

Yeah...I am trying to figure out which one of the kids to kick out to make a fish room. My little girl is the older one ( will be 16 on the 11th ) , but the boy ( 13 ) is usually a bigger ass. So its a toss up right now... :laugh:

There is still much I want to get for this tank and do to it to get it just right. So anything else will have to wait a bit. I am very content with what I have right now.

Besides...Tom has enough fish and tanks for all of us !
