Last night, the smallest scissortail grabbed a shelled pea and was munching on it (while just floating around the tank) for about 10 minutes!! I got worried that he couldn't get it out of his mouth, but he spit it out and a rainbowfish grabbed it and played with it!! Then one of the large scissortails grabbed the pea and was playing with it. I was charging my phone, so I couldn't record it. Didn't know peas were not just food, but toys too!!!
Wanted to post a full tank video, but I had to restart my phone and in doing so, everything on my SD card was deleted. I hadn't yet uploaded the video to Dropbox, so I lost it. Will be stopping by my service provider on the way home tonight to test with a different SD card. Could be the card or my phone.
Will record another video tonight. The shelled pea as a toy episode was very cool.

Tank shot with shadow of cat interloper - my girl Roz, who is the only one of my cats obsessed with watching the fish. I gave her a bucket to sit on so she doesn't have to crane her neck to observe from the floor.

I can't believe that my other cats aren't interested. Only one other has shown any interest. And amazingly, no one has tried to jump on top of the canopy. Roz will pick a fish and stalk it from outside the tank! She hunkers down (like she can't be seen) and tries to grab it with her paw. Too funny.

Okay, now I have 2 cats interested - this is my Kiki, who has joined Roz on the Menard's bucket. They are both 11 yrs old and came from the same county shelter in Wisconsin - maybe that explains the fascination with fish, especially my BNs. They are obsessed with my 2 BNs. The first time my bigger BN zoomed across the front glass, Roz almost fell off the bucket! She watches her (I think it's a her, no face bristles yet) like a hawk.

BN with emerging bristles - about 10 days ago. Bristles now a little longer and more obvious. It's too exciting.....

Thanks, Dave. Just finished my stocking with 6 Long-finned Zebra Danios. As long as I don't lose anyone, that's it! Will update with pics soon.

Some new tank pics.
My BNs are really growing their bristles. Trying a new food for them - Omega One Green Seaweed. The rainbows and tetras love to school together across the tank length. When 7-8 of the tetras school together, they're really interesting to watch. And the rainbows are fascinated with the small plant on the right side. They get right into it, heads down and tails up - too funny. The scissortails just float gracefully around the tank, minding their own business - very relaxing to watch them. My new long-finned danios and my 2 survivors are doing well together. They are all over the place!
