Nice looking Denison's. And tank is looking well.

Thank you. I love the Denison's. They are still young. I suspect I may have to rehome them when they get large. I only have a 29gl / 30L.

Yeah, I'm pushing it with a 55g. That's about the smallest recommended. But I have club members with large tanks if needed

I would prefer the Ramshorns any day of the week!

Showed off the tanks to a friend and fed early to get all the fish to come out.

Did a water change on the bucket which holds a decor rooted tree stump with a Java Fern growing on it. If I don't get it a new home soon it will probably die - all the way. I keep losing leaves from it. Have no place for or intention of using it and it is slowly having a terribly sad time in a bucket with nearly no light. I think I might take it to the Aquarium Club meeting to get it a home.

Admired my Clown Loach and how he is growing and reminded myself he still needs a few friends. Maybe looking for a few lfs sales this weekend.

Pwc on my shrimp tank, picked up the poo with a turkey baster again! Such a lot of baby shrimp at the moment so excited then just vacuumed out the water. Added a few IAL really like the tannins in the water.
Going to start making up the metro for my boraras, with they're food soon, I hope this works.
All fine in my elephant nose tank could do with trimming back my plant's and removing some of the Amazon frogbit, it's nearly taking over the tank!

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon boraras ,bamboo shrimp, crs,rcs and different snails.

I bought 3 pink ramshorn snails. They were BEAUTIFUL. But within a few months I had to tear down the tank and boil or salt everything to get rid of them. There were 1000+ and they were eating the mystery snails shells on the live snails. I kept a few but they are now in my outdoor tank I use for plant cuttings. The cold and lack of abundant food keeps the population from exploding.

Did the weekly 20% water change on the 20-long and trimmed the cardamine lyrata, which is growing like a weed and crowding out neighboring plants.

The platy fry is getting bigger and is coming out into the open more, and I'm happy to report that, a week after buying new neons from a different store, I haven't had a single death. I think I can say the problem with the last batch was Petco, and not me.

Glad to hear there are lots of babies, a nice treat after so much hardship. And hoping the meds make it like a fresh new tank.

Great update and improvement! Looks good!

Watched some of the tank inhabitants - the Turbo snail and then in the other tank, Tangerine Tigers. It is always so amazing how orange they are. Watched the young Dwarf Cory Cats. It is like the 3 bears - one is big, one is medium, and one is very small. I need another 6 probably.
