No joke. It cracks me up.

I had finished my old bottle of phenol red when I did my last water check, and my new bottle was clear. I shook it hard for a long time, but it never got color. It never did anything to the water I put it in, either.

I went to the pet shop closest to my house, and they had the high range pH test kit but no other API kits at all. I asked, and the guy said they could order it for me. He suggested the Tetra strips. No thank you.

So I'm carting around a sick toddler who keeps saying, "I just want to go home!" except that she also wants to look at the axolotles. In the same tank as one of them was this very active "leopard" snail. Looks like an apple to me, and the mystery snail we currently have in the 29 gallon just sulks in the corner. So obviously we brought home Vanilla Snail, who is now hanging on to the underside of the bamboo leaves.

I just love those poop machines called snails!

So after getting that Mopani wood, it actually has about 3 knot holes in it, couldn't be happier with the price and nice looking piece. The Mopani DW chunk made some really nice tannins in the 46G tank!


But started shopping around for a better center piece type DW for the tank.

Then nearly choked as I reviewed some of the prices people were asking for DW and different types of stones (started looking at Seiryu stones and some others) wow.

My huge DW piece was under $30 (I think) so I must have got a great deal, or prices have really gone up in a few years!!!

Also got some sticker shock from pricing some other items. So I am just shaking my head!

Then I remembered I wasn't going to stock the 46G at all (as in not keep it) but the problem is the one giant (Neon Tetra and similarly shaped fish eater) Spotted Raphael Cat which I have had the longest now of any of the other fish I keep. Since a tiny baby just over a half inch - now probably 8". Which I really like (except for the fish eating issue ).

So if I want to see 50-60 Neons schooling around the 72G, I can't keep the SRC in there! It is too huge for the 12G, lol. Dilemma.

So today I had ~$40 I wanted to spend on fish so the choice was to be 40 Neons which were on sale for $1. each or 8 @ 4.99 fish - not on sale and hardly ever catch the lfs store when they have them in. Sundadanio Axelrodi Blue aka Neon Blue Rasbora.

Went to look at the Neons and one had Ich, so I steered clear of that mess - though there are other chain store locations I could look for them at.

Will look at the Sundadanios, maybe tomorrow. Or save the $$ for the CAS Auction coming up.

Thank you. He was down there enjoying his bloodworms.

Your betta is very pretty. Blue and white, how about Ghost or Spectre?
