Thanks, @toolman. @TMaier, it looks like I'll be getting a backup!

The Spec will be able to start up again since the pump is submerged. The puffers should be okay without a filter given how drastically understocked and heavily planted the tank is. The community would be like tossing a cigarette butt into an ammunition storage unit.

Good and bad.

Looking forward to getting 2 new tank soon. Planning.

Bought a new Betta "for the grandson" which I will be keeping. Pics sometime this week. A couple plants.

Pwc on the cycled new nano SW 12G. It had a hint of green I would venture maybe .15 and 0 Nitrites and close to 10 nitrates so did 50%. Added a few new snails.

Having a start of fin rot on the other Discus. 75% pwc there. Treating tonight. Bought her frozen Beef heart and fed defrosted.

Unknown at this time... Will be a +2 & - 4 I am still switching things around a bit. Purpose to disappear the mismatch...not have more mismatch. I will need to keep them maybe, just in case of any future breakage..... Right?

Discus is looking a little better. There was a bunch of old food which had accumulated under the decoration, hidden.
