Went to feed the fish this evening and saw the my apisto pair are parents. I didn't even know they spawned since I was away for a few days with the family on a ski trip. Sad thing is I wasn't prepared for them to spawn so I definitely don't have food prepped for them. Come to think of it, there wasn't any cave type structure for them. The only thing I can think of was a small dark opening between the sand and driftwood where my Amano shrimp usually dwell. Anyway, momma apisto has been taking them all around my 75g tank. So cool since I only had them for 8 days.

My pistos spawned as well but the eggs/fry didn't make it. I don't even know if any hatched bc I couldn't see them

Changed out the 8 harlequin rasbora from my 90lt to my 700lt (kinda funny how they looked big in the small tank) and replaced them with 10 rummy nose, very happy with the swap cos the rummys have rekindled my interest in the small tank, super active little guys

Have been watching 3 Blue Leg SW Hermits in the the 6.6G Edge doing something, love tussle or fight for a shell (there are plenty in there to exchange) 2 seem to be interested in one little guy.

Then fed and watching the critters - Watching Nassarius snails pop up out of the sand for food never gets old, funny Vid on youtube - Saltwater Zombie Snails (not my tank) but much more amusing in person!!!

Last night I flipped the filter pad around in the tank and upped the filter flow moved around the Chaeto in the little hob but didn'treally accomplish what I wanted, it was really gunky with debris and much went into the tank.

So when I have a few extra minutes I plan to turn it off and rinse it with water to get it cleaner and put it into the tank and just add floss. The Chaeto isn't getting enough light in there and isn't very dark green. The hand full in the tank is deep dark green and the nasty Bristleworms and critters keep it nice and clean.

Fed extra for the Upsidedown Catfish in the 72G since she came out to eat and turned the light down as well for her comfort. She likes to hide. (I am still looking for a local home for her with a few friends to play with).

Hoping the lfs has some nice Clown Loaches for Loachie to hang with. He was funny. When I fed them, he sucked a pellet in his mouth and it was too big so he went off with it to a corner to munch on it away from the feeding frenzy. Then he raced back over, grabbed another and did it again.

Noticed the Double Dark Black Angels are getting some pretty color in their ventral fins lighter golden black. Maybe not a standard for color on them (not sure) but it is a very pretty contrast.

Upon further checking the small Hermit body was dead - blew on it with the Turkey baster and the body came away from the shell. :/ don't think it was a molt, maybe just a sick or weak one. Those guys are cannibals, I hear they TRY to eat each other. I got them because they were stikingly colored and after find out they want to eat each other - Uhg. Off to work on that note...

Busy as usual Autumn!
Well, cleaned the big guy's tank out, his plant's are growing really well in there it's starting to look better.
Added another filter to my shrimp tank wanted more flow for the filter feeders.
Received a piece of wood with anubais on it and suctioned it to the glass for my guy's too feed off, within the hour I nearly lost my shrimp, they were going crazy, so I removed wood and spent most off the afternoon doing pwc. Everyone seems more settled.

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon shrimp and snail tank
