Added two nerite snails to my 29 gal freshwater just last Sunday. I acclimated them they are on the bottom and haven't come out yet. I don't think they are dead. Is this normal with newbies?

Took out all my plants and washed them. They were awful! Siphoned most of my gravel. I did it wrong...cause I didn't realize how bad the gravel was. (I got a 7' siphon when I needed a 9-10', haven't been able to return it so I ended up using it.) I emptied out water, then when I put water back in everything got stirred up. Then I siphoned and readded water. So I really ended up with a 40-50% wc when I wanted a 25. Oh well.
So, my plants are out so gunk could get picked up from. The water. Also I think I am going to do something different inside. Buuut , yeah that is what I did. I may start feeding smaller pinches because, well, they eat most of it, but a few pellets are always left over and that adds up over 3 months.

Technically did a water just on my newly set up sw tank; just to add some freshwater, to lower my salinity.

Watched the fish for a little while. Never ended up moving the 2 Green Kubotai so going to do a 40% pwc and put them into the 12G Edge for now so maybe can get some TT shrimp babies.

Very disappointed in the Fluval stock replacement LED light I installed on the 6.6G Edge. I had been concerned about this possibility when I switched it from the original halogen lights (because of being broken/halogen not available). If I have enough time will do a pwc on that tank too.

75g Now Dressed to the Nines

Vac & 10g water change in the 29g to get some red slime under control.

Picked up a Tuxedo (Urchin) at Nebraska Aquarium Supply...

Mmmmmm...farm raised catfish!

Sometimes that happens.

I LOVE the Urchins!!! Make sure to feed him macro algae or seaweed sheets! They eat soooo much!

Ended up pwc'ing the Mr. Aqua tank, 2 - 50% back to back pwc because of the gunk I kicked up. There needs to be a reduction of feeding in that tank gee, was there too much gunk.

Added water to the snail tub and the plant tub, then the vase and bowl. Moved the Kubotai too after the pwc in the 12G Edge.

Today moved one clump of Gracilaria as it seems to be turning pale on the edges.
