60% PWC and vacuum in the 8g Biorb for my son. Some blue green algae has popped up and I have never had it before. Someone gave me some silk plants and I suspect.... oh well now is the time to treat it but still trying to decide the best course. I gently removed all the affected items and the rinsed them well in a bucket of old tank water. A lot of it came off. That and the water change things look normal at the moment.

I am considering a UV treatment and a peroxide one, but I need to figure out how to dose. Also going to add a bubbler to move the water a bit more. If all of that fails the last resort will be the erythromycin. I hate to lose my beneficial bacteria.

So you think there is a reason to be tired?!?

So hard to decide how to treat the gunk, maybe need the water to get moving a little more - flow!

Paradise fish are lovely. I'd like to own some one day.

Perhaps again the rubber suction cup from the glass.
This rubber holds only the first 14 days, then thin wire must be attached for safety. Whether heater, thermometer, pump, everywhere the same.

Why yes that was how I knew!

He is lovely but a rescue fish and didn't really think through that he might fight with my other fish Opaline Gourami. Haven't put them together to find out yet or maybe ever. hmmmm??? Thinking it over still.

~~~~~~~~

Thanks Arthur.

This morning before work found that 2 of the SW Rock Flower Anemones had hiked pretty far to the back of the tank at least I only could see one in the mass of Macro Algae in the rush of turning on all the lights. The look of the macroalgaes all around the live rock looks pretty cool imo. I know it is pest type stuff on 2 of the varieties, but that is really neat. Cautious appreciation, lol. I think I want to find a few more live rocks for the new SW tank going to set up in a week or 2 so that the Macro Algae ones can stay in the Macro Algae 6.6G excess MA tank...ur um...vase.

That makes me think I need a new table credenza type thing to hold my "vases" I am feeling pretty positive about doing some tank moving and rescapes here after my out of town trip next week. I also plan to scout out some interesting fish store shops to check out on the trip.

Really the primary thing I want is some nice substrate for my new shrimp tank. But won't be able to resist some great looking rocks and types of woods if they happen into my path.

Main thing I need to do is hook up my light timers for the tanks. Hmm.

Buce has been in the tank for 3 months and has been putting on leaves. Java and Anubias are doing great.

Hey there. Last night I was just admiring the pic of him you recently posted where he looked like he was photo bombing and showing off his spunky attitude.

Geez that kinda thing hurts, and I know he will be missed, those guys are part of our daily lives and we really get attatched and love them - and miss them.

I am sorry he's gone.

~~~~~~

Heading off to be gone for around a week. Left 4x6 index cards at each tank and instructions and little Dixie cups with which type of food on each tank so the other non fish keeper people can take care of them.

Trimmed some Macro Algae away from the area where the Rock Flower Anemones live and keep settling in, in different spots. Put it in the MA overflow Vase.

The small fancy RFA just moved out from under the big guys shadow. Now in the middle of the sand area.

Added calcium and minerals to the SW nano. Have been noticing that my lettuce Nudibranch loves to sit under the light I am guessing where it is warm. Saw it eating Macro Algae from what I could tell, the other night. Hoping it is happy in there as I really love it.

****
I made organic baby lettuces ice cubes to feed the snails in the bucket and Plecos in the 72G.

Added the Pleco clay cave I got at the auction a couple weeks ago to the 72G. Facing to the glass so I can watch whoever moves in. Hoping big Mister Albino (big) Bristles bushynose - he seems like the type to guard a cave as he is a couple years old now. If he might end up with an actual mate we shall decide what will be done at that point. There are 2 adult Albino females the same age.

Saw one SAE checking it out in there. In he went and then decided in a moment of panic he couldn't really turn around once in there, so shimmied out backwards - fast! That's it for the moment. Will be watching how everyone is doing even if I don't /can't comment .
