My poor boys
« on: December 11, 2012, 10:22:22 AM »

So I go away for 5 days, refrain from using the auto-feeder. I come back to find my boys upside down! Sod's law, they must have been gulping air. Undecided

Salt bath hasn't worked, water perfect. Just keeping my fingers crossed that they'll self-right.

They're not looking too good. I've given anti-bacterial meds just in case.

Have now two baby moors, can't photo them as moors are invisible with regards to background. Name suggestions welcome.

well, I first thought of Sable & kala, the former being the heraldic term for black , and the latter Hindi for black; but I've noticed that one of them likes to feed at the left end of the tank, and the other at the right, so perhaps sinister & dexter?
