Delapool's 150 gallon tank

Auction night last night. Anubias went for high prices so gave up - will try treating mine with H2O2 for BBA. Bought more South American cichlids (sigh - bidders card goes up by itself).

Cherry shrimp were scratched so got ninja shrimp and dragging a tank out of shed tonight

Shattered, settling fish in at 11.30pm last night.

And tank prices are just insane here. $130 for some basic 30 or 40 litre tank, not even rounded edges or low iron, etc, etc.

Got a 6 gallon / 25 litre tank out and onto kitchen bench. Takes up more room than I thought but ok. Guppies, shrimp and plants I was given have gone into there.

Whoo hoo!

That is too bad about the Anubias. We get them at the lfs as emersed growth and they take to the in water transition quite well from the ones I have bought. After having my flaming plug situation, I missed getting to purchase a few bigger plants, Anubias and most desired the wonderous Bolbitis. I did get a tiny mini / baby Bolbitis, 2 tiny plants. What I needed was a couple huge ones!!!

That is pretty disappointing that the regular tanks are so expensive, not to mention how much the fancy ones would be!

How do the Guppies and shrimp seem to be doing together?

Good question! I think the shrimp were getting too much attention from larger guppies tidied up and shifted larger guppies and plants to bigger tank. Left moss and some fine leaf plant in tank for guppy fry and shrimp. Bit of plant debris floating but I figure shrimp food.

Found my old light on top of cupboard and added that (taped off more led lights so not too strong). Just need to get a timer for light now. Ordered some substrate which will take a week or so. So setup and next auction will hopefully get cherry shrimp. That was a great idea to do a simple shrimp tank.

Itís really too much for 5 bits of glass glued together and basic black rims Would love it if they sold tanks a bit cheaper as then they would get more people buying all the rest of the stuff.

Have you thought of making your own tank, plenty of how-to videos???? Skip the rims. and be super cool, lol Still missing shrimp at my place, maybe this next weekend. I have been having a couple issues with my Guppies and my pH was falling too low. That kept me too busy and the temps were really freezing to order them, but this next week I think. (Fingers crossed)! Hoping you find some good shrimp.

Delapool's 150 gallon tank

Itís pretty tempting to try.

Been a bad week to finish - bacterial infection. Dosed triple sulpha and left over furan 2 plus left over metro/prazi past expiry date. Mainly damage control. Plus melafix as well.

Found lots of tiger barbs hiding up back. Missing tail fins completely or abscess in side. Think I disposed of them all except one that has a white tip on tail fin else looks fine and swimming with pack.

Annoyingly lost a bn catfish and blockhead cichlid from I suspect the melafix

Hoping itís over and fish / plants ok now.

About the same this morning - one tiny tiger barb to keep an eye on and still watching the barb with suspect tail finage. Else seems ok. Will check tonight.

Squirted H2O2 on BBA on one Anubias to try it out. BBA fizzed so hoping it kills that and Anubias is tough. But was going to ditch it so nothing lost I guess.

Small tank going fine with a few shrimp and guppy fry. Ordered soil substrate.

I've never had melafix work. I think it's snake oil.

It seems that if the fish has tail damage or fin rot from poor conditions it will heal fairly quickly with larger water changes....50% frequently. if it's bacterial fin rot it will continue to deteriorate no matter the water changes and requires meds. Hopefully yours is just damage.

So sorry to hear of all the troubles. Very frustrating when getting fish which have developing issues.

The very good water quality is always a big plus. I always recommend Epsom Salts (always, lol!)

It is a wonderous time when there aren't any sick fish in the house.

True, is nice when tank is humming along.

yeah, they went downhill quick too although previous week didnít take much notice of tank as rushed weekend, then auction night. Iím guessing either the warmer weather although well into spring or coincidentally I had been dosing high glut to see if did anything to BBA (which it didnít sigh).

I agree on melafix - itís pretty hopeless really. Tough life if you are a fish.

Delapool's 150 gallon tank



Bolbitis damage I reckon from the furan 2 (maybe). Be in about the right spot. Should bounce back - failed to kill it for several years now can see the leaves going white/off-green/brown around healthy green leaves. Been getting worse over last few days and Iíve not dosed high micro ferts or anything.

When things settle down you can give it a trim. Bummer though.

Thankfully it is tough!
