Sorry about your fish 😢 so sad.

Well, spent the whole day setting up Gonzos 70g, we're now in agony! It all went smoothly thank goodness. Added his sand and filter's, I'll watch his parameters for a few days.
I'm off for a cup of coffee 😀 I'll take better pic's tomorrow, keeping the light of today so he can settle. Attachment 289185Attachment 289186

Pwc on 5 tanks. Lost two guppies this week, and can't figure out why. Only thing I can come up with is intestinal blockage after I fed the last of the brine shrimp. All parameters were good, first one was a shock, second one I saw coming as she was breathing heavy and hid in the tank instead of greeting me when I walked up to it. Quarantined her, and the next morning she was laying on her side on the bottom.

Also dirted the 55 that has been sitting in my shop. Planted the spare plants I've been keeping around for it so they don't melt on me. It's sitting out next to the shop so it will get a few hours of full Sun a day. Need to finish refinishing the stand so I can move it inside.

I finished cleaning the sand, added the final touches to the tank, then filled it. Put on the heater, light and filter. Added some brine shrimp, and some media from an established tank to the filter. .. Woot!

Want to stock 2 blue Rams, a Cory, and cardinals. Well, that's what I'm thinking. It's a 68lt tank but I think only 58lts water went into it after the decorations took up space. I did lose count of the buckets of water - I used rainwater to keep it soft, and some boiled hard water to warm it up. Oh and I added a bacterial pouch called Splosht

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Lost a kuhlie today, he was laying on his side gasping on the bottom with what looked like a huge lump of pond snail eggs on him. Quarantined him, but he was gone a few hours later. 😭

After that I tested his tank and tried counting kuhlies, but the little buggers don't sit still. Best I could get was up to 9 for sure when I know I put 13 total in. Where are they going?

Sat and watched the fry tank for a bit, those guys are getting way to used to me. I put my hand in the tank and they're swimming through my fingers.

Sorry you lost him. Don't dispair that more a gone. They are excellent at hiding. I have one that I hardly ever see but I spot him once a month or so.

Gave Gonzo a pwc today in his new tank, been doing it daily just incase of a mini cycle. He's really enjoying the space can't believe how big he's grown!
Pwc on my bettas tank, he's looking fine thinking of adding an apple snail but I'm concerned he'll nip it 😯
Pwc on the boraras tank, been cleaning it daily since I have ich and a bacteria infection.
Had 61 boraras now I have 32 such a sad tank 😭 think I'll lose more before I'm finished treatment.
Pleco's are doing well, no spots and busy zooming around the tank Lol.
Think that's it, so tired!

Glad the Pleco is getting better shellyx, so sad about the rest. Gonzo's new tank is quite beautiful! Bowfronts are so sculptural and nice to look at!!!

Kwakatoo - Try getting a large DW which will help reduce the pH, also just as a safety precaution against heavy metals and weird stuff from the atmosphere in your rain water, consider using Prime or other treatment that will render the possible toxins harmless!!!

Ruutah - Sorry to hear of the loss of the Kuhli. They do hide well. Internal parasites could be an issue. I started treating all my new fish in QT with Metro food to help avoid that. Watch for their poo and see if there might be any clues.

Been working a lot and have company so things heve been a little out of order.

Haven't seen any further Anchor worms. I see one odd scale on the Angelfish and am hoping it is a bump and not a worm spot!!!

Spent a little time looking over possible online purchases of CRS or PRL shrimp. Someone local has some reasonably priced CRS and might try and get a look at them. There are all grades in the tank and I just don't know it is for culls or just a random scoop of CRS (better deal!!!)

Trying to reduce feeding quantities for all the tanks. Seems I am over feeding STILL! They always look hungry! lol

The 2 baby guppies living in the breeder net have become fairly large fry now and looks like one is a female, because of the black tail like the other females. Thinking of moving the white cloud Mountain Minnows to the 12G Edge tank since they are getting bigger and eat shrimp babies.

Need to do a pwc on the QT.

Lost 2 guppies and the kuhli in that tank last week.

Got sick of losing fish and decided to treat the tank. Just finished administering the second 1/2 dose of meds to that tank for external and gill parasites. Water changes will happen a day later this week. Then I'll repeat next weekend after they've had a bit of time to recover and a pair of water changes. Then I'll treat for internal parasites.

Otherwise... I found out my 55 I snagged off CL for cheap leaks. Go figure. I'll just reseal it one afternoon when I have the time to pull it apart. Till then it's out in front of my shop and holding my extra plants.

Positive note... I have a line on a 400 gallon plywood tank for next to nothing. I'm thinking the bearded dragon needs a monster terrarium. 😀
