Received my new longfin bristlenose today, I managed to injury him when catching him in the bag he's got a piece of his right fin missing I hope its grows back, I'm feeling awful 😭
Temps are really high in both my tank's weather is hot at the moment, I've got a fan going not much good!
Autumn I haven't tried adding it to my tank wasn't sure on the amount? Meant to ask you but life is seriously hectic.

aww shelly! I hope he gets better soon! I'm sure once he settles down he'll be very happy to live in your tank.

Put the boys in the breeder box. I've put mine in time out for being too pushy. But I've only got two of them

Ha that's cute! My hubbie is starting to think I'm crazy with the time I spend on the fish, but.. I really like them! I have two small male endlers and one male guppie. All of them peruse the 2 females. I'll just see how they go in this bigger tank, I think the move stressed them. But it's a great idea - thanks Ruutah.

Tank got cloudy...
It's okay. I was pulling the Staurogyne repens out of the tank.
Tank is still clearing up:

shellyx - you can mix an equivalent amount of one tsp per gallon- I will let you do the metric conversion. More is fine. Dissolve into an amount of water lets say 2 liters ( I know how much that is) I use hot water to dissolve it say one liter amount after it is dissolved then add the other liter as cold water to try and get it to room temp/ tank temp, add Prime when normal temp. Then use the concentrated 2 liters of liquid to the tank at about 1/3 or 1/4 amount per dose - say over a day. then just maintain that amount as you take out and do pwc.

When doing pwc I add the appropriate amount to dissolve into the bottom of the bucket and dissolve in hot water, using just a liter or 2 amount in my 5G bucket but use the tap water to get to normal tank temp and add Prime, then add water mix to tank.

When you top off for evap, you don't add more epsom salts because it doesn't evaporate, it can be utilized by the plants but I wouldn't worry about getting that detailed at this point. You do lots of pwc and you shouldn't need to adjust much because of that.

If after the next week to 10 days you get more dead, you can up the amount some. But that amount should be enough for the deficiency ( disclaimer: not a scientist or scientific mind )

I think it can be reduced after awhile maybe 2-3 weeks if it is seeming to help. That is a usual treatment time, but then the addition for just having enough to use for good health maintenance would be less. I have used much more than that for the treatment of my fish like Bettas to help them get better from illness. Magnesium is really needed and useful to the body.

Fresh WOW!!! That is some mighty healthy Stauro weeds you have there!!! So jealous! I'm lucky to have a 2 inch high one!

Hey all - the dollar per gallon sale ends in a couple weeks, sometime around the first week of August.

Oops, forgot MY best part...

Finally got a dozen Chili Rasboras, and I understand the other fish I ordered arrived this morning at the lfs but were still in the shipping boxes and I had to get to work!

So pretty happy right now - they all seem active. Getting them into the tank in a minute, just finished acclimation! Yipee!!!

Oh so cool! You'll have to try and get picks ( I say try as mine are to quick for me and leave a blur ) congrats I know you've been waiting for a while.
I'll give that a go today, hopefully it will help. I've hardly any left sadly
Even my blues have disappeared only a couple left and some babies.

Haven't done anything yet because I'm at work 'til 3:30, but when I get home plan on doing biweekly maintenance on the two FX6 for my 150g and a water change

Pwc on my boraras tank, still haven't got pic's off my longfin red bristlenose he or she is being pretty shy! Definitely going to be a beautiful fish when fully grown it's only about 3 cm at the moment. Made up Epsom salt mixed into a bucket, going to add that in slowly over the next few days. Autumn will my fish be ok? I think they will but double checking!
Boraras all doing great, growing fast and enjoying live food!
Gonzos doing well, decided to add cattapa leafs to his tank really like the look.
Well I think that's all.
