How exactly did one train a fish? That had been Nerius' question since he'd come up with the idea to try to train his seryn, and as he reached the loch, he still didn't have an answer. Of course, his skills at land dwelling creatures was hardly any better, and his usual method for training was '...err.. wing it?' Seryn at least were supposed to be very smart, more so even than a vulticus or equillion, not that he had experience in training either of those.
Sure enough, Ianthe seemed much more.. aware, than fish usually were. Her eyes were much more alert, and seemed to track whatever interesting things they'd gone past on the way here. The blacklight seryn was currently swimming in what was essentially a glorified giant fishbowl, not a good habitat for long term living, but suitable for transportation. Nerius didn't plan to keep her in the tank for training, why bother heading all the way out here for that.
He didn't want to the dump the tiny fish right into the big lake though, it would be easy to loose her if she got spooked by something, or worse be eaten by someone's poorly trained water beastie. Most aquatic creatures from the Labs were much larger than a baby seryn, and the little fish would be a bite sized snack. That was very much not what he wanted, and Nerius had chosen a small inlet, a grotto technically, though that made it sound much larger than it really was. It was also netted off at the entrance, to keep anything from swimming in, or out.
It was an excellent place to train a seryn (he hoped), but first he needed to give the saltwater species one of the special tablets. He wasn't sure what to do if the seryn didn't want to eat it, but fortunately that wasn't an issue, and Ianthe went right for it, thinking it was food.
Ianthe didn't appear to like it overly much, but didn't spit it out at least. Next was to get her in the water, but he didn't just want to dump her in. Instead, he set the tank in the shallow loch water, to let the temperature adjust a little more slowly. Nerius wasn't sure if this step was necessary, Lab make creatures were usually more sturdy than wild ones, but it didn't hurt he supposed.
It was a warm day, for the season, which was why he'd chosen today to take the little fish out for a training trip, and while the water had warmed a bit, it was still cold enough that Nerius didn't really want to go for a dip. He might not have minded cold weather, but he didn't really want to go swimming in chilly water. The grotto was warmer than the rest of the loch, it was much more shallow and there was less to heat.

Twilight-Claw: Is the site that is going to be used to host all those images also the type you'd need to pay for? (definitely noticed the broken images yeah. Photobucket feels like it is standing on its last legs. X3 )
