June 6th 

I put on waterproof bandages on the parts of the shell rot and put Steve back in to his tank. He was getting too stressed from dry docking. I hope the bandages work and not get waterlogged. 

See how happy Steve is back in his home?

“Mommy, feed me!”

New Zebra Danios

I previously had 5 zebra danios in Steve’s tank but Steve ate the 3 and there’s 2 remaining. The 2 were both males and since danios need to be in schools, they were very aggressive to each other, chasing the other away. This is a common behavior of zebra danios, but the aggression goes away when more fish are added. That’s what I did today. I went to Dondaemoon Aquarium Markets and got 3 danios for the remaining ones in the tank. They were slightly smaller and lighter in color than the ones in the tank. Light color indicates stress for the danios. I hoped they would get better once they reach a proper home instead of a crowded tank they have in the fish market.

When the new danios were plopped into the tank, the old ones came rushing to say hello. The old ones and the new ones were inspecting each other and recognized that they were friends. They are doing fantastically! Now I have a happy school of five zebra danios!

I wish I could take a proper picture of the danios but it is near to impossible because they are so fast! Even with the bare eyes they are hard to observe close up. There’s no way my cellphone cam is going to capture these lovable fish!

Hi, I’m Steve

I’m a red bellied short-neck turtle from Papua New Guinea.

I live in the little corner of Lisa’s room.

I moved in May 19th 2015.

I am constantly hungry and bored, so I destroy random objects.

I love eating everything from fake plastic plants to rocks.

I currently live in an temporary tank but I don’t think I’ll be going back to the big one that I used to live before. Mommy doesn’t live there anymore and has moved out.

I’m hungry right now so I’ll go chewing on some plastic plants.
