    I just looked back at my journal and it was July 2011, so that Cuip X has been with me just over 5 years.

    Not much happening other than feeding an water changes. The smallest one has gotten bold and all seem to be growing rapidly again with 2 dried pellet and sticks feeding a day plus 2 to 3 fdbw feedings. Getting low on worms so I need to order more cubes from Rick.

    Short youtube vid. The red turq from April is a camera hog.

    I always enjoy these video updates. Looks like they've had a good growth spurt

    Yes, Rick, they seem to like the bigger water volume and the bigger feeds I am able to give because of the bigger volumes. I am also back to my old routine now and doing 5 to 6 wc a week so they are liking that better.

    That's an awesome water change schedule! Food and water, those are the key elements for sure.

    Been busy with a lot of family and work stuff. Power outage for 3.5 hours a couple of weeks ago during that storm distressed my biggest Brilliant Turq enough that it died. So sad. Then we went on a family trip and then I had to go out of province for work. The fish were troopers through that and as you can see one of the leopards have gotten quite a bit bigger than the others.
