I filled the EVAP gap and added conditioner. On Saturday I did a 50% PWC with good gravel vac and scrubbed the tank down. I fasted the fish on Sunday. Today I fed them blood worms. They seemed to love it. I realized after taking the photo that I have an antibiotic package behind my tank.Click image for larger version

This particular issue is not all bad. For some reason, snails have cooked themselves on this heater- even when it's not horizontal. I have a different heater horizontally in the other tank with no issues, but this one has killed three or four snails. We're getting a second of our heater that's good. So on the one hand, I'm annoyed that we're spending money on equipment that we already had. On the other, I'm glad to upgrade.

Cooked snails is bad. I would have taken a hammer to it.

I had thought it was my fault for having it horizontal, even though the other heater never has that problem.

Many heaters come with guards now to help protect the sucking, sticky critters and bettas.

Yesterday the new replacement substrate came in the mail. I need to now send the other one back but I need a new box. They came in USPS flat rate square boxes and although they made it here in one piece, 99.99% sure it wouldn't make it back in either of the same boxes.

A little more info added about all that on the other thread

Haven't seen any additional dead Tiger shrimp.
