I only saw a handful but didn't want to move around the plant too much to look. Will get better idea when empty them into the pond before it starts freezing. That pot is too shallow for nj winters lol. Actually the first batch I've had live since I removed the gravel from the bottom.

Water change day.... Did ~60% on the community tank. Put 20% or so back as tap water (well). Ph is now 6.5 ish... I'll check it again in the morning after an air stone has been on it all night. Bh has gone way up. Can't recall exact numbers but it's doubled what it was before.

Loaches seem quite a bit calmer, though it is feeding time and everyone is munching.

Changed 80% of the fry tank. Guppies as usual played in the water coming in. Kribs have grouped up, and are pecking around the Java moss in the tank.

Betta tanks are tomorrow night, the massive Apple snails I put in there with them make massive messes. :O

Very cute gemach7!

Had to scoop out a dead danio from my school's tank It was practically ripped to shreds and the gold gourami is definitely to blame. We were going to rehome both this week.

That's a shame. I love gold gouramis, but they can be thugs.

Gave the fish a bit of a fast today and light dinner tonight.

Did a 2G pwc on the SW nano.

The monster sized Chaeto ball is SOOOOO big - say nearing 1/3rd space in the 6.6G Edge tank. It is getting a bit pale so it need some more minerals. I add them about 3x per week, but I think it needs something more now as it isn't coloring back up after the additions. Probably since it is a Chaeto MONSTER, lol.

Just don't want to add too much of the minerals, so will need to check if there is a specific one it needs, that won't bother the fish and inverts. Might also just try a little, maybe half the amount every day instead of every other or so.

Do the pwc more often too.

All the fish seem alright for now with the recent changes, and the QT.

Filled all tanks for evap.
