WOW!!!

Glad I learned that overhearing, instead of saying it wrong myself like chick-lids and pleck-os.

Traded two male guppies for two females. The guy said, "bring me your fry!" I was surprised by that, but apparently he gives $1 store credit per fish once they're saleable.
ROFL>>>> And what an amazing deal to get that much credit for GUPPY fry, lol, very unusual. You can't beat that!

I just looked at the tanks for a few minutes.

The impeller on the 29 gallon's primary filter lost a blade. Glad we have a backup, but it's only meant to be a backup.

I have some kind of jelly algae.

I got some new plants. Petco had a couple that were mostly dead. I asked to get them cheap or free. $1 each on $7 plants. I'd say what I planted from them was worth that.

Sorting out having male and female guppies together. We have two males and five females, but apparently only one of the females is at all interesting to them.

Is the jelly algae like the gel from the gel packs the plants come in??? Mystery snails will eat the gel goop up if it is just wierd algae stuff.

Had reason to be near a lfs not often able to visit. Did not find any RFA, Anemone Shrimp or Pom Pom Crabs but did fine some bright and pretty fish I have looked at previously in a different color.

The (ORA) Yellow Line Goby are perfect fish for a nano tank. At 16.99, a good price, but still a lot for a fish. Just picked up one, thinking maybe a female since it was wider and a little larger than the other 2 in the tank.

Maybe will get another as I hear they do okay as a pair. After doing additional reading about them, had differing opinions about whether they can be in a group or not.

Also saw a cute little Emerald Crab. Hoping he has a nice personality and isn't a mean tankmate (like a few occassionally). He came home with me too.

Did evap replacement in the SW, the 12G Edge and Mr. Aqua and then the 46G.

Hoping to get to the SW not too local lfs and get some additional Pods, plus there is a good location, not too much further away but likely worth the extra few miles to maybe get a few more shrimp and Pom Pom Crab or RFA???

I was definitely unclear about that! I hadn't planted The plants yet. The goop was like thin gelatin.

Refilled a CO2 tank last night. Adjusted it and let it run (its on a timer).
This evening when I got home there were no bubbles coming out of the diffuser and the gauges read 0/0 for working and total pressure.
I gave the tank a firm twist (where it meets the paint ball adapter) and pressure when back up to 35 psi working and ~875 psi total. Whew! Bubble counter was right around 2-3 bps. Apparently I did not tighten it sufficiently last night.
Drop checker is a nice sapphire blue. Will check back later.

Removed all the nuked buce and anubias rhizomes from my main tank and put them in my 10g hoping they recover. Moved the ADF in with the ramshorns in the 5g. He is too stupid to find food I have to put it right in front of him. PWC and filter rinse on both of the tanks. Tied all the new plants from Junglefowl on to rocks and dropped them in the main tank. Tomorrow is rearrange day for the main tank and PWC and Red's Biorb too. Click image for larger version

Added water for evap for the nano SW. New RFA moved again and so did the fancy. The others all are seemingly fine but those 2 are not very happy, both having a hard time settling in.

Saw the baby RFA seems very good wide open. New fish seems happy too.

Thinking of the new SW nano tank change will be coming up in a couple weeks (planned). Also considering a larger option - the 46G as a FOWLR SW Still thinking... probably thinking for awhile about it. If that goes into play then one of the other tanks has to come down.

Cleaned the filter on the Tangerine Tiger tank. There were many pretty orange shrimp and around 12-15 Boraras. The tank was a big mess like a jungle. But nice looking plants and the shrimp were nicely colored and saw a few small ones too.
