Dunked all the DW into the 46G to start soaking, a couple hours later, every snail in the tank is either already on the DW or headed in that direction.

I did a 50% PWC on my 20 gal. Didn't realize I was doing such a heavy change until I replaced 9 gallons of water (took out 8.) I did a good gravel vac. It was SO much better today after giving bloodworms twice a day for the past 6 days due to chronic constipation problems. The floor was so much cleaner. Now it is just a matter of doing deep gravel cleans on a weekly basis (with the pwc) until it is good and clean. I feel like my tank is so dirty sometimes. But in reality, it's the cleanest it has ever been since original set up and New Year's Eve restart/clean/transport in 2015. The edges of my tank, the gravel gets bad along there and the corners. But other than that, it's pretty clean. Today was supposed to be a fasting day. Buuut, I fed them twice with bloodworms since that's good for their digestive system, too. And of course, I watched them eat away.

PWC on the Snail/Shrimp nursery. Canister clean/rinse. Prefilter is doing the job, no shrimp in the canister. Moved things around a bit too.

Found my first suicide today: I had been wondering why I had only been seeing one otocinclus for a while, finally thought to look behind the aquarium with a flashlight...

Yep, there he was, and he'd apparently been there for a while, a little dust-bunny mummy. RIP, little Oto.

Why do they always pick the most out of the way, hard to get to places to do this?

I dropped in some cucumber & broccoli and then fed my millions of guppy fry with liquifry. That's it really!

I haven't seen anybody rest on the heater in the other tank, even though it's longer and still horizontal. We got a second of that type.

Ready for a very short dry-ish start!

Not sure how to keep the snails in the same tank separated from the puffers without it looking terrible.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Perhaps the snails could enhabit a "critter keeper" ?



I bought a pretty terrarium for the Betta to hang out in today, but it looks like an alien coming to abduct the islanders lol!

Good thing I'm never satisfied with my tank, and always happy to make changes:p

I think I'll go back for a couple more and put them on the bottom, surrounded by plantsClick image for larger version
