    Cy had a birthday this month! :blower:

    Here's the bday boy:

    Here he is next to the horrible shell I bought him in a year ago!

    Fortunately, I distract him with another shell...whew! That was close. Here's another beauty shot of the birthday boy:

    I was worried about getting straws, but so far my straws are all doing alright! Out of 6, I've only lost 1 to a bad first molt. Four of the five remaining Straws have already had successful molts for me.Carmine is the only one that hasn't molted in my tanks yet. One fella I was wondering about, Beni, came up a few days ago, so I got some pictures of him last night. He's very shy, especially for a straw:

    Aka is just the cutest teeny straw! He's always got such a determined look on his face doesn't he?

    And Carmine appears to be deep in thought. Do you ever wonder what they think about?

    Here's my first viola molt! Capt. James Cook! Named for the famous Royal Navy explorer who made the first European contact with much of the Polynesian and Australian areas.
