Weekend purchases etc, what did you do?

So... I had a busy weekend.


Rivercats is sending over a nice package of plants.

Pulled the trigger and bought this for the 75 gallon African cichlid tank.
http://www.truaqua.com/uv-sterilizer...nal-uvp13.html

Also made a nice purchase from JetaJockey's site http://www.peabodysparadise.com/shop/

Then... Bought this bad boy for the planted tank
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003SJ...r=8-10&pi=SL75

Picked up 2 plants to get me started. Mixed all the ferts so everything is ready. Stocked up on peroxide, root tabs and distilled water.

Tested water in planted tank and water change in the 75 gallon African tank.

I think that's it....

Hmmm......

Picked up a sweet deal on a 46g bow-front w/stand, hood and dual T5HO on Saturday..... intent was to upgrade my FW from a 29g, and thought about maybe trying CO2 planted. As soon as my wife saw it, the first thing out of her mouth was "That'd make a nice FOWLR for the fish you wanted but couldn't put in your 28g nano....." D@mn you, woman.... you're right!!!


Picked up a few mexican turbos for my nano. Over the past couple of months I got really busy at work, the nano maintenance suffered a little, and I got a red turf algae outbreak. I got it under control where is wasn't spreading, but I couldn't get it to go away..... put those in there, and they went at it!!! I've already got a couple of rocks that are perfectly clean....

I got two GBRs and two more Emerald cories. They're in QT for a few weeks. I also got a pair of boesemani rainbows directly from, what was basically, a 4 month QT at my good LFS. He let them have the tank to themselves (plus two other females) cause he's a big fan of them. I'm hoping they'll breed so he can have another male if he wants it. They went into my main tank after acclimating for a few hours

Got two female Bettas on aquabid, they should be here tomorrow or Wednesday. Also picked one up locally since I got lucky and found a really nice one at Walmart. Don't run into crowntail females there very often. Shipped some baby marbled crayfish to jess1ca today, too.

Got 4 ottos for my 26 gal livebearer tank, feeders for my Oscar, and paint for the back of the 37 gal sw I'm setting up. Also did my weekly water changes, moved the 26 to make room for the 37 and painted the 37 but those aren't purchases. :P
