    I'm not sure Acan 1 looks good... If you compare the pics over the days, some of the heads have had better days. Though I guess is the day after the iodine dip. Maybe it'll start to improve, or just crash away.

    I'm hoping they'll decide to do something.

    There were all with the lights off.

    Candy Cane - Night 7 Post-Feed. The right head had actually eaten before I could even get the camera. The left head seems to have eaten as well.

    Until they recover or die I suppose. It only takes a couple minutes

    I don't know how confident I feel in Acan 2 either...

    This Acan has me confident that if I were to get new acans, they would do well... as it's pretty happy and eating very well.

    Really happy with the candy cane... it seems to have made a rather full recovery.

    Oh, the Candy Cane says "yum yum" to brine shrimp and cyclopeeze...

    Especially this head, which I'm sure was very hungry as I haven't seen it eat much in almost 2 weeks.
