I did some gravel siphoning. It's been months, sadly. Did a major rinse on my black filters :/ . Water change. Put a fish in quarantine (poor Jeffrey is ill.) Added bioboost and conditioner.

Poor Jeffrey! He's a real pretty fish. Hope he gets better soon!

Siphoned and cleaned the (icky) glass in the 23G. Lots of leftover food, have to do bigger water changes on that one. Started feeding new pellets and everyone seems to like them. Also tried making 'fish jelly' (since I had a lot of dried brine shrinp but no baby mouths to feed) and it was a success! They all gobbled it up

Thanks. I hope he gets better too. It looks like he got in a fight and his eye got attacked. It may be infected.
Do you feed your babies brine?

Checked the tap water - Kinda surprised.
Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrite 0
GH 65
KH 25
pH 7

More pwc coming up.

Autumnsky, I like your fish dreaming! How cool would it be to live with aquarium walls.. Now imagine the fish you could have!

In the above post can you clarify what you test for me? I test ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and ph.
But you add GH and Kh, what are they - is it water hardness?
Thanks

Fed my leaf fish last night. Finally found the other guy, he's still hiding. I think I'm going to chase him a bit tonight and make sure he's not stuck in the log... I don't think he is, but I can't think of another way to find out. They really like the shrimp pellets, so it was entertaining dropping them in the water and watching them "hunt" them. I'm glad they started to eat, I was getting concerned.

I saved my poor betta from the nursery. I didn't have a place to put him that had warm enough water to transfer to before work, so I started up a "betta tank" I had left over and put warm treated water in it. I figure that way he acclimates to the cooler water as it naturally cools throughout the day and shouldn't give him too much shock. Poor baby got fin-nipped hard. He seemed almost instantaneously happier when I put him in there. I was half tempted to bring him to work with me, but I know they'd have a conniption fit... too many electronics, not enough space. At least I know he won't get picked on now. I put the little betta house and the moss ball in the bottom. So he had somewhere to hide if he wanted to. I'm probably going to swap the little house out for a plastic plant for him to hide near/under. We'll see. Depends on where he is when I get home.

KingKoopa, I'm diggin' the rockscape! Looks awesome!

Autumn, those guys look great! Can't wait to see the long-finned guys when they decide to come out of hiding!
