What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Lol - I feel your pain. I hate when you find a good deal but shipping is stupidly high.

Pulled a loose plant out of the tank and ended up removing an ice cream container full... Will replant on weekend but was nice to see the gravel.

Added 19 boraras to my shrimp tank, thought I had 20 but only counted 19! Been offered more so I'm thinking of ordering another 10, they look tiny in my 30g! Soo cute!
Pwc on my elephant nose tank looks like he's scratched himself again .
Added pictures of my new fish really struggling to get a pic of them but they won't stay still!
And thanks again Autumn 😊Click image for larger version

Glad you finally found some shelleyX!!! They are adorable.

Well for got to turn the lights on in my tanks til 10 pm, as I am up late they got only half dose of light. Already having some troubles with the plants not having quite enough light as it is. I think it is time to round up all the timers I have been buying over the years and not using and get them plugged in. I kinda like just doing it myself.

Was excited to see some very you, maybe a week born Tangerine Tiger baby shrimp, an saw a few more which were probably in the month old range. The tank has some aglae on the glass from the sun shining into it in the afternoons and the tank hasn't been scraped but the shrimp are enjoying it, and makes it hard to see in easily. Was pretty pleased. Still saw 2 berried a couple nights back but one looked like she was in the middle of babies popping off!

Last night they were fairy swimming all over the tank so maybe a new batch of saddled females soon will be berried!!!

Pwc on my shrimp tank, on cleaning my filter I found a dead boraras 😭
So I've taken precautions and squeezed sponges over the intake to prevent any more deaths incase they were getting sucked in.
Removed loads of plant's in my elephant nose tank it was seriously over grown in there! A lot more room in there now for him.

Congrats!


Money can't buy happiness.... But I can buy fish, which is kind of the same thing.

No shrimp deaths today thank goodness hope it lasts.

Late last night checked the fish and fed them.

Then, in the Tangerine Tiger Shrimp tank I saw 3 dead large bright orange shrimp, and a young one, and saw one more later. Did 2 50% pwc and a couple gallons after that.

There was a large algae wafer I had dropped in thinking the snails and the shrimp and little Dwarf Cories would just go crazy eating. Later 12-18 hours can't really recall, they hadn't eaten that much and though usually all the MTS would still be there picking at it, there was no critters feeding. I sucked out the remnants with the handy dandy turkey baster. Even did a few extra amounts around the substrate.

The shrimp had been alive and wandering around the tank earlier in the evening.

Didn't have time to test before getting the emergency pwc's done. I am guessing an ammonia spike.

The snails had eaten one shrimp, the others, I lost a female and 2 males, all really bright orange. Why couldn't it have been the 2 I had planned to cull? (not a real question).

This morning did 2G pwc.

Had intended to do a deeper clean on the tank the other day but there were tiny new fry.

Really long day, got home and added some Prime. After a bit of rest will do another 50% or 50/50 pwc.

Added some trace minerals to the water, about half a dose.

Had to make a side stop too - shopping for some new SW sand as I was considering switching up the tanks anyway. (Wanted to get it into the new set up before the package came) Not content with the options at the 2 nearest not so lfs. Going to take a quick check online.

Got some liquid minerals for the SW tank and some more calcium powder for the low KH from the tap water for the FW tanks, along with a little extra Prime since I'm doing some extra tank/substrate/water cleaning this week.

My Chaeto is getting so very big! It stayed small in the HOB filter without hardly any light, its now IN the tank with lots of light.

My shipment of macroalgaes and snails should be coming, I thought maybe today, but I guess not. For some reason I didn't get a tracking number so I will need to send a email to check and make sure if it really was sent Monday.

Tomorrow is likely delivery. I will be waiting in the AM. Often the USPS drops off the packages a little earlier to the houses than the mail to the boxes.

Also I am going to try a new hook up /buy a quick connect for my FX-5 filter so I can just connect and turn the valve to drain the tank to outside. Step one for quicker water changing system for the 72G.
