Looking at the qt this morning, we discovered that there were two dead neons. I had noticed on Saturday that there were two or three with very pale colour, and we’re guessing these are those. The others seem to be all right, although none of their colours are particularly brilliant. These guys might stay in the qt a little longer. We also decided we were being hopeful, the other day, counting 10 neons still there: there are certainly only 7 now, so the weird thing with the snail was a dead neon.
Meanwhile, back in the main tank, James dropped in some flake and claims the Colombians acted like piranhas, or like they hadn’t been fed in weeks – went crazy and gobbled up the lot.
