Need some putty?? Nice that she can help out, much easier to look at the tank if something isn't up side down!!! Hope you get stronger and better, I will be praying for you!

Worth the extra work to keep the fish in the safe zone, good thing you realized it, our day to day life can be pretty tiring, even without giant pwc's!!!

Mentioning the female Swordtail jumper yesterday that I saved... found the male, a jumper previously found that time in the plastic bag, this time not so lucky...8 feet away!!! from a half filled 5G bucket. I never looked that far away from the bucket. Can't believe he jumped that far!!!

He was the mean one anyway so although he was beautiful, and it is too bad and sad. I will not be missing him biting at my other Angelfish's eye. The Angel is still a little wounded from that incident, with a damaged eye.

Trimmed a potted Dwarf Baby tears to try and get more starts as I used 2 other parts of it to be in potted vases as fairy plants (no real fairies, sorry guys, just tiny varieties of plants - nano plants!!!) Wanted to try some dry start growing but one problem is I can't decide which tank, poor me, lol! Any decision right now means moving a tank of something somewhere!!!.

Maybe wait for the 12G SW to finish cycling then I can use the 6.6G edge as a Iwagumi inspired tank.

The DHG in the 2 tissue cultured packs are greening up pretty well, they were pale but look healthy, as the stores "grow" light is broken and has been for a long while, so you have to get the plants within a few days of their arrival so they don't start dying!!!

Water changes on both tanks

My nerites keep leaving the water-is this normal or should I take it as a warning for a water change?

I know that when assassin snails head for top it's bad water lol

The tank is cycling right now... I just sterilized it and reset it. Using prime and bacteria supplement to keep water safe

Sometimes nerites just want to be out of the water for a bit. Their natural habitat is tide pools, so they would spend time out of the water every so often.

Weekly water tests. I don't foresee getting over sun-yellow ammonia and sky blue nitrites. love them.

Thinking I pretty near hate Angelfish. I know they are just doing what they would naturally, being stuck in a fish tank is reason to try and guard territory and kill or run off the competition. Hopefully they will all live until tomorrow when I can try sorting them out.

Now one of the Angels is biting the poor Gourami again. In the 46G.
And there are 2 Angels biting other Angels and fish in the 72G!!!! Just because they want to pair up and breed, very inconvenient for me, :/. So inconsiderate!

If I could be sure which are M and F that might be a big help, gonna have to do some studying. I was told but may be incorrect info. And know the sexes of the 3 I had originally, based upon previous issues and behavior.

Will attempt to divide the M and F so there are no pairs! Sorry fish.

Tomorrow is pwc on 46G and 72G again. Plus testing for the cycling SW nano. Hoping we are ate the tipping towards cycled??!

The Angels are biting the Gourami again, hop he doesn't mind being in a 5G for a couple days Think I have to get him moved! He's freaking out.
