But, as Herald has been living alone for the past 6 months, while showing no signs of kicking the proverbial bucket, I decided to just throw caution to the proverbial wind and just get the new fish while letting Herald fend for himself. So thusly did I venture out Saturday to the pet store and buy me some various assorted African Cichlids. Young-uns, all of them, but rest assured these are some bad fish. Killers. Indeed, Al Keda quakes in there boots when they think about facing these fish in a dark alley.
So, without any more further ado here are the pictures of the new fellers and felletes.
This is my favourite one, which means he'll probably be dead when I get home from work today, cause God is always trying to spite me, but anyways there he is peeking out of his cave. He's rather handsome for a ruthless killer, eh? Actually I got two of the blue ones so if God strikes one dead I'll still have the other.
This guy is cool too, I get the feeling he's going to be the most baddest of them all cause he swims around real slow and cool-like. I've already named him Dick, after our VP.
This little fella is actually a fellete, according to the helpful sales lady. Sadly she has a spot of ich on her back bottom fin, but not to worry, I dumped a bunch of ich killing stuff in the tank so with any luck I got it early enough. That ich stuff is a pain.
This one has me kinda worried. He's real small and isn't social at all. Either he's still freaked out about moving to a new tank or he's just bashful or he's near death. Time will tell.
Here's another shot of Dick, swimming around looking for someone to club to death.
And lastly here's a group shot. You can see Herald swimming all by himself in the upper right hand corner. They haven't messed with him at all, but I'm guessing that might change if he's still around as they start to get bigger.
So there you have it. Other than the ich they seem to be adjusting real well to their new home, this morning they were eating those little pellets like crazy, which is a good sign.
