Okay... I brought 2 greenside darters in 3 weeks ago where they'd spent a full
weekend without food as I was gradually raising their temp in a bucket (they
were going from 38 degree water to 72 degree water yuck). Then I got sick
with the flu for 5 days where I couldn't move... Then they really weren't all
that interested in anything that wasn't creeping on the bottom. Today I
started a preliminary feeding for the other pigs with fd brine, the one is all
about swimming to get it now... The other was thinking about it. Phew.
They've been doing well on frozen, which is my follow up feeding to assure
they're fed. Spicoli seems to clean up the scraps at night.

Man I was getting scared. I recalled they were a bit more difficult to
acclimate, dominant males have been just about impossible for me, but I didn't
remember having this much trouble with younger specimens.

Also, hopefully the frozen brine situation will all be over soon, as it's
kinda awkward to go into the office kitchen with latex gloves on because I'll
allergic to frozen wet brine. The Sales Manager/CPA said "Oh Gawd! He's got
gloves on now! Run!" I had really hoped to avoid her with the gloves, but oh
well. More stories from the cube, I guess... :)
I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record.
