You need a field /game camera!

Fed my pom pom Crab in the SW nano, going to do a 25% pwc in a little while.

Need to post the Platy locally or see if a local shop would want to take them and give me credit towards something else. I am gonna look at which ones colorations are may favs and keep 6 out of ~20.

Today I played musical fish.

I want to play with dirt in a tank, which means getting the betta out of the 10, at least temporarily. So I moved the flame tetras and the peacock gudgeons* out of the 29 into the 75, and moved the betta from the 10 to the 29. The corys got to just chill.

* Well, 4 out of 5. I haven't been able to catch #5; she's quick, and doesn't fall for my trap! I'll try again tomorrow.

Then I gave the 29 a major haircut. I pulled out about half of the bacopa to give the rotala some more breathing room. I cut the wisteria waaaay back. I pulled out handfuls of java moss and cladophora. And, just for good measure, I trimmed a little off the top of the pellia. Gave the filter on that tank a good cleaning; among other things, I removed a sponge that clogs up super fast and added more little bio-ball thingies... cleaned out the inside of the spray bar as long as everything was stopped. I have water movement again

A few days before:



Just now:

Thanks!

Yeah, I think he will. This is the tank he was in when I first got him, but he got ornery with the tetras, so I set him up in the 10. It was ... okay, but not my favorite. This'll probably just be my betta tank from now on. I think I'm going to go with shrimp and fancy snails in the 10, once I get it settled. I feel like it's a bit small for fish.

Set up the Baby Biorb. 4gallon. Did some crazy under sand sponges to see if I can do this with sand instead of gravel. Click image for larger version

Ramshorn snails and plant starts to keep things rolling. These were all in jars for the past few months with the sand to prepare. Got this tank for $25 used back in November and finally took a minute to set it up and buff the scratches.

I have four gallon-jugs under my stand for top-offs and water changes on the 10 and 20-long. Way easier than prepping a bucket.

Moving things around again

Got a little progress made today.

12G Edge - Removed Platys and plants, stones, DW and the substrate rinsed, rinsed tank

12G Mr Aqua - Moved all plants, stones and DW, rinsed and moved all the substrate over to the 12G Edge.

This is the substrate for shrimp Up Aqua Sand and it has been used by me previously for the Tangerine Tiger Shrimp.

Refilling the 12G Edge adding a bunch of the rocks and stones and DW to keep the light on and keep the substrate active and the biofilm growing.

So what did I do with the 12G MR Aqua???

I added the Hawaiian Aragonite Saltwater CaribSea sand with live bacteria. 2 Saltwater stones I used before and I had kept in the drawer waiting to set up the larger Nano.

Dug out a 30 AC filter, added a filter pad and also a pouch of ammonia buster from Fluval added to the container.

Then decided to add some Chaeto. BUT it was full of little Serpent/Brittle Stars and I ended up moving at least 8 of them to the MacroAlgae vase/tank.

Lookie here for the little guys!
