Did a 1.5G pwc on the SW Nano.

Phone broke so I haven't made calls to check who can do a deal on the special glass for the low iron glass tank (not low iron for the bottom just thick and good cut).

Was about to turn out the lights on my 72G when I saw a big Anubias leaf with eggs on it.

Getting the phone thing worked out so in the morning if they are there I might be able to get a good pic.

So I see the other 2 Angels hiding and staying away from the new "pair" I had planned to get these fish a new home a few weeks ago but the guy wasn't able to take them for a few weeks so NOW we get some eggs. Maybe he will want a pair.

Moved a fish

I took my mean as hell O.B. Peacock out of the 75gal and put him by himself in
a tank in my bedroom. He beat up two fish and killed a third.
He was the biggest and most dominant fish.
He had been in the living room for 2 years before he did this.

Last night I started setting up my 38 gallon with the white sand substrate. I scored an awesome deal on an additional 55 gallon tank with a heater and a filter rated for a 90 gallon tank. I'm excited. For simplicity, and decent cycling, I picked up my filter system for my 55 and put it on the 38, moving the new filter to the existing tank. Thus the ability for both filters to either cycle the new tank, or cycle in general.

I'm waiting a bit for the new filter to get some of the existing bacteria from the tank so when I change out the substrate, I won't have too many issues. I decided to go from the dark blue gravel to the pool filter sand in my existing tank, then rinse off the blue gravel and update the look for my convict fish. I have no idea what possessed me to do the huge switching through everyone, but, there it is. LOL My living room is rapidly becoming the fish room in the house.

If I was able to move the credenza my 55 is on, I'd line it all against one wall, that way there would be a fish tank wall... wouldn't work with my current furniture set up, and probably would disrupt the cats.

Should be entertaining to say the least. I'm excited to see how everyone's doing when I make it home from work tonight.

Sadly had to euthanize one of my boraras today looks like TB, lost 5 since I got them 3wks ago, removed another 3 with same problems, probably have to put them to sleep as well. Think this tank is nothing but bad luck!
Everything fine in my elephant tank, keeping all aquarium buckets, net's etc separated so my big guy doesn't get anything.

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon borara merah and brigittae, shrimp and snails

Well I have another 5 sick looking fish, I'm at the point of closing this tank down if I lose them all. Absolutely devastated hunted all over the country for these guy's
Going to give them another pwc.

Aww, Shelly that's awful. I'm sorry you've lost so many, especially when you worked so hard to get them.
