Blue-Spotty fun... (Part 2)

Posted 02/09/2012 at 11:56 PM by Aaarrrggg

The next day I came down to find that Kululu had toppled one of my arches. I had cemented down most of the rocks, but evidently not the ones he had decided to start digging under <sigh.> The one circled is supposed to go up here...



He looked really smug in his new epic rock fort.



A little later that day he'd moved again; this time to the similarly shallow sand on the opposite side of the tank...



He spent all day fighting the current and unsuccessfully trying to keep the sand from blowing back into his burrow. Poor little chap.

The next morning... SUCCESS!!



He'd found the perfect spot and arranged the rock rubble around the hole, but in doing so he'd also pushed away all the sand I'd carefully piled up.

If he could just figure out how to stack the rock rubble into a tube then the sand could come back in and he'd have the perfect burrow. I tried in vain to explain this to him but he seemed to think he knew best and today he was back trying his luck again on the left hand side of the tank.

On the plus side he's a lot braver now and is greedily eating anything that floats by. He also seems happier to spend time outside the burrow, which gave me the opportunity to snap this shot:



I'm going to give him another week of trying and then I might have to intercede with some sort of Jawfish Condo.
