i had to wait for the new set up to run for about 24 hrs. then, i could relocate my new babies :)
these are fair fish, meaning, they will outlive your petstore fish. they've survived traveling like a circus, being in baggies, having ping-pong balls tossed at them .... and now they'll live happily in my three gallon tank.
... you try to take a picture of swimming fishes! they don't hold still.
they are soooo much happier now. i am soooo much happier now. during their transition time, they spent some time in two different shallow bowls, one being a mixing bowl. all they did was sit still. it was spooky. but, now that they're in the tank, they're exploring and swimming alllllll over. too bad i can't kiss them.
