What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

After being so excited yesterday to finally find ghost shrimp, it turns out they may have been close cousins...these are definitely NOT peaceful

Today I set up a hospital tank for Betta, who's tail was shredded by the "ghost shrimp "

Tore my tank apart so that my teen and I could find and can catch them before they harm the pleco

Currently acclimating them to the goldfish tank, and adding lots of hiding places. I'll put them in the breeder box and hope they have enough sense to stay there until I get a critter keeper
This should help if they escape Click image for larger version

ID:	295690I checked and the basket is a safe plastic, so they have a "safe space " if they climb out

Switched the lighting on my 20-long to four-on four-off four-on to see if that helps with algae control.

Put away a cart load worth of stuff I had laying around from the fish work, foods, nets dead plant material on a paper towel I picked out of the tank, etc. Messy Marvin. Wiped off all the tank stands and glass and tops.

Dumped the bucket of shrimp substrate from the previous tank into the 12G Mr. Aqua tank and plants mainly so I can be sure they are getting enough light, moved the plexi top back to it, it is rimless so it has acrylic brackets to hold the top and light sets on that.

There are 10 containers- /tanks, including a bucket and a bowl which have plants, snails, fish and /or shrimp...SW and FW. Not including the bucket of substrate, no living creatures in it though. But still having to change its water every few days.

There are only supposed to be 4 yet somehow they keep multiplying instead of reducing. This is the reason I have been feeling swamped with tank chores.

TOO MANY for me right now.

Found a "Brittle" Starfish which has MUCH longer arms than any of my other ones ever did, so guessing it is a Serpent Starfish which is growing up. I am planing to try to move it to my MacroAglae Vase tank if I can capture it. I had company over at dinner and couldn't take the time to get it out right then.

ID:	295697its a little saggy but it should keep the cats out unless they step on it

Thinking of getting a 2-3gallon setup for the month we will need to leave him in for healing....this second hand ten is a bit risky if the cats realize that it doesn't have a real lid.....and someone ate the last minnow I qt'd without a real lid

Nice. I got a lid a guy made with plexi for around $5. from the local big box store (came with my rimless tank). He dremel cut the spaces for the hob and airlines and a hole in the top with a drill.

My dad could probably do that but I don't have the tools

Too bad he's not closer

It's totally worth getting your paw wet for fresh sushi.
