Well let's see.. where did we leave off? First of all, the kitties are doing great. Sapphire is eating just fine and will munch on her food when both I and Steve arrive am/pm respectively. We've decided she's a "social" eater. She's loving her new "treats" too and gobbles them right up. I'm awaiting Steve's blog from the evening - but here's the scoop on the fish. FORtunately - the lion fish got hungry enough to turn up and eat not one but TWO shrimp today !! Yea!!- I was SO relieved, I can't tell you ... But, I nearly did have heart failure when I first walked in to turn the lights on because he was just floating on the coral tree and not swimming back and forth like he usually does... I thought - Oh geeze he's starving to death!!! Anyway - I guess he was just sleeping... hopefully. I encouraged him to swim by feeding the other fish with the tongs close to him - The wierd thing is though... I actually managed to get a nice big piece of the "green" fish directly in front of him and he took one look - and didn't bother with it !! I was so discouraged... but! at least he decided on the shrimp. I'd put a big handful of them right over his head, which finally got his attention. Well - I'll have more news as soon as I receive Steve's report. Cheers!
