Sorry to hear thing's didn't go well for your blue rasbora, you've been wanting those for a while, at least they didn't sell them to you.
You got more little cories! I think they're so sweet, been seriously thinking of adding some in with my boraras when my new one's finish QT. Careful when you move that tank!
Well, pwc on my boraras things looking good for all of them, the one with the half tail is growing back! I'm seriously thinking my boraras like baby shrimpies doesn't seem as many as usual and the little guy's love hunting through my plant's Lol
Have a struggling crs for 2 day's he's been laying on his side not able to stand up sad to watch.
Gonzo has destroyed my lotus! so I might remove it, just hope I can take it out without leaving roots behind.

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

Did the weekly 20% water change today. Looks like I really did lose two of my five amanos after buying them just last week, but the other three seem hardy. And I still have all 11 neons, too.

I then spent much of the afternoon researching cooling fans for aquariums: we're having a mild heat wave here in LA, and my apartment doesn't have AC, so the tank temp gets worryingly high. Trouble is, the common review of all these products seems to be "cheaply made." Hmm...

Those Lotus leaves are pretty easily damaged but the bottom roots are usually still good. But Gonzo is kinda fierce.....

Sorry to hear of the crs. Yes so sad.

Got the 2 12G tanks moved. Had to do an additional pwc on each to be able to lift them, lol! 75% on Mr. Aqua and 4G on the Edge. Now I have a mess of wires and misc from having to change their locations.

Also found at least 6 electrical timers in the drawer ranging from the old style that you plug a lamp into when you go on vacation to a few digital ones, which are probably too complicated for me But, maybe I will hook up the lights to them.

Ugh...Just found out that on a different wall where my SW nano is the wire was tugged and the cord for the power strip got loose and my tank filter hasn't been running for about 9 hours. One of my snails was trying to climb out of the tank! Anyway it got plugged in now but the filter won't restart, I'm gonna have to clean it out.

Always something!

Early clean on my elephant nose tank, took 60% out since I had to remove the lotus! The roots pulled out really easily and I don't think the plant was doing very well and Gonzo didn't help! Cleaned his filter's and impeller, trimmed the cabomba a bit.
The little crs that has been struggling is still the same don't want to euthanize him as he's still trying to eat, definitely think he's injured himself somehow.
All boraras doing fine, this Thursday I'll be adding my 22 to the tank!
Sadly my little crs died, and I've noticed one of my bamboo dying as well 😭 so I've just done an emergency clean on my tank, so fed up this tank has been nothing but heartache. While my amanos in Gonzos tank are coming up for 5 yrs without any death's. So confused.

~30% water change on the newly dirted/planted/setup tank. Added a BUNCH of new plants to this tank without quarantining them.... Got a pair of baby snails in that bunch of plants. Who would have thought?

Realized that 4tbsp of peat pellets may have been too much for a 5 gallon tank. Thought I was having another algae bloom, but got to looking and realized it's brown water not green. Cories and Otocinclus seem to REALLY like it though.

Gave my Betta's some dwarf water lettuce in their tanks. One of them has already made a bubble nest around his.

Got up this morning to a dead bamboo shrimp and crs 😭 really becoming fed up! So I had to do another pwc incase the water wasn't so good.
Found a few baby blue phantom shrimp today so tiny!
Fish are doing fine.
Took a picture of my shrimp and boraras sharing a algae wafer. Click image for larger version

Did a 20% water change on the new tank. Looks like the cycle is finally starting to kick off.

~30% water change in the cory/oto tank tonight, found one of my oto's dried up and stuck to the back wall above the water line.... Kind of bummed about that, not sure how it happened, or how he got up there.

Floated an ice-bottle for a half-hour today: came home to find the tank temp had risen to 80.2 thanks to this heat wave. Got the temp back down to 78.6. This evening's a bit cooler; fingers crossed things start to level off.

Added my new boraras to my display tank, all have joined together zooming around the tank!
That's 42 I have in my 30 and you wouldn't think so they're soo tiny! Cute little guy's 😊
My bamboo shrimp had a successful molt I'm pleased to say.
All doing well in Gonzos tank. 3 amano shrimp are carrying eggs again, sad they aren't going to come to anything.
