New Tankmates for SteveIrwin and Cousteau

With the passing of our sweet balloon belly molly JackHanna - SteveIrwin and Cousteau needed some company.  I think SteveIrwin was kinda sad that JackHanna was gone...

So - off to the pet store I went and I came home with some new friends!  So welcome to the family:

BettyWhite - the panda platy:

BobBarker - the silver molly:

and RickyGervais - the balloon belly molly:

photobombed by Cousteau

So far BobBarker has moved right in - he is totally comfortable in his new surroundings and munching away on some fish flakes.  BettyWhite found herself a large flake and took it into one of the tank ornaments in order to eat it in peace.  And - unlike is namesake - RickyGervais is quite shy and unsure of his new home.  I am confident he will come out of his shell soon!

Cousteau is unaffected by these new additions.  SteveIrwin is busy trying to show everyone who is boss...

RIP sweet JackHanna!!
