Then, today, because more fry keeps popping out.. I've put the mums in the breeding tank and let the fry have the run of the tank. I may only have 3 fry, it's very likely the mums (2 of them) have had a gourmet feats overnight.. But hopefully the second mum is still yet to drop any day.

This is my first go at breeding, and it's been a learning experience!

Learning experiences are definitely of the best! Trial and error is sometimes the best way to learn too If this batch or the next doesn't work out you'll always have more confidence with the ones to come so keep trying

Thank you, I absolutely agree. It's a steep learning curve keeping fish. I've made quite a few mistakes. But I take heart in that I get better each time. I'm here because I want to keep learning and hearing different thoughts. Everyone has different experiences to share. Really glad I found the forum!

Oh wow!!! That's what I'm secretly hoping but don't want to jinx myself
So glad you had a few extra nice surprises!

Glad you joined Kwakatoo )

Went to a local market and there were some aquariums for sale. They had a 20, 25 and 10 for sale. Was tempted to buy the 25 but saving up for a larger tank...

Sad news: Woke up to find an angelfish fry with its mouth being sucked into the internal filter. Instantly unplugged it and the fry died soon after I took it out. Very sad about this and had no idea the filter was a hazard (it was the part where the wire comes from).

So sorry to hear this, always sad when you lose a fish. Especially when you think there might have been something you could have done - but no doubt this was a very unlucky issue. I've put a couple of stockings over my filter intake. But still wonder if a fry went into the top hole... Ugh.

Fish in the 12G Edge have been out in in the plants - more visible due to the thick vegetation in the upper levels of the tank now. The Microdevario Kubotai seem more calm though they still move around a lot.

Added a little dose of mineral supplement to the SW nano.

Need to do a pwc on the 72G in the morning.

Over the weekend I went running around all over Raleigh to get the lights I needed for my planted 55g after all of my new treasures I received. Turns out, after all of that, I already had the lights I needed in my existing 55 which I use for the angels. I swapped the hoods out, as it was the cheapest thing I could think of to fix my lighting problem asap. So... yay! It was fixed. Now i have to return my lights to Petsmart, and probably pick up some liquid ferts or something.

Side question: do you just add the ferts straight to the tank water if they're liquid ones? (I know that was a stupid question, but I just wanted to make sure.)
