Sorry to hear about your losses Autumn 😭 I know how that feels. I hope you don't have anymore.

Added new plants too Gonzos tank trying to fill it in looking a bit bare at the moment. Still waiting for the nerite snails I ordered, hopefully they'll arrive today.
Bought a new mag float for his tank (thought it would be easier since I need a step ladder to reach the bottom &#128513
Cleaned boraras tank, plecos looking good! The little borara that lost his top fin too disease is doing well and I'm sure the fin is growing back.
Added a nerite too my bettas tank, he seems not bothered about it so we'll see.

70 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon boraras , red longfin bristlenose, bamboo shrimp, crs,rcs and different snails.
7 gallon halfmoon betta and red ramshorn.

Well it was like murder central after arriving home. So many dead Neons. 3 dead Plecos, 2 super red young ones a light and a dark one and the Clown Pleco. Those are the ones that were dreadfully sad to lose. 2 super red left one was listing and losing sucker grip during hte pwc, and wasn't looking good.

Plus one Paradise fish and one Bronze Cory with about 6 Neons out of 22.

Did a huge pwc about 75-80%. Added in Epsom salts half of what I will add the rest in the morning. Added the water in 1/3, then a couple hours later added another 1/3 will add the other 1/3 in the morning.

Wondering if the plants I brought in from outside had some odd thing dropped in my a bird or slug or snail or something. I'm surprised if it had lived through the meds.
Looks like new medication time though I am doubtful at this point.

Have company coming in to town again and working a lot. Just don't have time for this trouble.

Any consolation that the other 4 tanks are doing alright. Thankful for that.

Thinking just keeping one Betta fish might make life easier.

Oh adding some mineral salt into the trouble tank, also in portions to make the additions easy on the fish.

HOLY COW!!! I'm so sorry to hear that.

Did you test the water before the PWC? That's nuts!

Autumnsky it's like a nightmare. So sad when this happens to anyone and the part that makes it all so insane is never unraveling WHY.

That's horrible for you Autumn 😢 so sad to hear. Is your ph ok? Just thinking of the time it crashed. I really hope you don't lose anymore, sending you hugs.

My nerites arrived today 5 went into Gonzos tank as it's got a lot of diatoms! Should keep them busy for a while.
Pwc on my bettas tank, all good in there except for a rip in his tail he keeps getting wondering if it's his filter or betta hammock.
Cleaned filter's in the boraras tank rather dirty! Pleco's are getting along a lot better thank goodness really adore these little guy's 😊

70 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon boraras , red longfin bristlenose, bamboo shrimp, crs,rcs and different snails.
7 gallon halfmoon betta and red ramshorn.

Here you go...

Have not seen my tank in the last few days because of work. Will be doing a plant trim and PWC today. Plus scooping duckweed out of the QT/plant holding tank. No like duckweed.

I put duck week in my tanks and the snails loved it. No more duckweed. $1 spent on snail salad.
