sometimes the vendors dip those things or keep them in medicated tanks so that there aren't snails. Kinda like poison I'd guess to shrimp and maybe they didn't rinse it or anything or had double dosed threir tanks or whatever! Scary stuff. Might be able to run a filter with carbon for a couple weeks and do pwc on the bucket /tub to clean it up.

Long day at work today scheduled. So not too much for fish. Going to give them a big variety of frozen (defrosted) foods in a few min.

SW Hermits are scampering around happy now so maybe they are just being Hermits.

Since the 2 Green Kubotai are probably eating the TT shrimp babies, I should move them today. Also hoping to get an order placed in a couple weeks for about 10 more of them.

Or maybe 6 more and 8-10 Chilis or 6-8 Sundadanios Blue Neon if the store has them. Every time I call to check if they have them they usually say yes - every time I actually make the 45+ min. drive they don't!!! They will go into the 12G Edge with the Pink and Red Ramshorn snails.

Probably will also move the 4 remaining (in the original 6.6G Edge) Phoenix, Exclamation Point and Chilis (variety the result of not getting the correct info from the lfs to buy actual Chilis) to the 12G Edge as it will be the Nano fish tank tomorrow.

Planning to break down and clean out the original 6.6G tank pretty soon and either put it away or just get new substrate and shrimp

Yeah keeping busy - hate to get bored or not have anything to do, lol.

Weekly PWC. Five gal out, five gal back in. Added some buffer to balance PH. Cleaned a small build up of green algae off the back glass. Everything checks out. Life is good.

In the middle of a water change on the 40b as well as trimming the DHG. Next I will do a water change on the 54.

finished the cabinet for the ADA tank this morning and will start the scape on it later today or tomorrow.
