Things continue to go well for the two new butterflies! On Thursday they finished their first round of prazi, and since then they were in-between doses (when treating for flukes you must allow a few days between doses for the fluke eggs to hatch; they won’t hatch with prazi present). Today I dosed their second round of prazi, and there was no reaction from them whatsoever- good! I’ve also been maintaining the salt level at .3% and they’ve been doing great with that. They’re very active, eating well, and their waste looks healthy and normal. I added a heater to the QT tub today because it’s near a window and I was having a hard time keeping the temperature where I wanted it. But the heater should help a lot with that. After a few days of pondering, I finally decided on names for them! The white one is Sophie and the red/white one is Felix. Felix means lucky or fortunate, which is very fitting seeing as they survived the shipping incident. And I’ve always thought Sophie sounds like a pretty and delicate name, which is so fitting for the white butterfly because she is so… well, pretty and delicate!
There is not much else to report! They’re still just being their cute little selves.
