Water quality isn't an issue.

One which looks nice is Ludwigia Repens x L. Arcuata. Not too demanding for light likes a little ferts, nice color and texture.

~~~

Pwc on Shrimp bowl, 12G Edge and 6.6G Tangerine Tger Shrimp. Removed some scoops of Duck Weed from the Edge tanks to the to the pond.

Set up the 17G Sterlite plastic tote for plants, added a bunch of the new plants to it. Moving the Wabi-Kusa cuttings to the tub in the morning.

"Hardscape" more like "look at all these cool rocks and sticks!"
Picked out some cool rocks for my new 29 gal, won't have it up and cycling for a couple weeks yet so I'll wait to make a thread, but I'm getting excited!

I attempted to round out my otos. Purchased three, one was swimming sideways by the time we got home, and two had died before I finished a reasonably slow drip acclimation.

The spouse is blaming the store, but I'm feeling icky about otos altogether at this point.

Being at the shop-- there's so much I want! He has red crystal shrimp that look like candy canes, pink and blue rabbit snails, and more furcata rainbows.

I did regular water changes. Not a lot of time for anything else.

Got home pretty late.

Suddenly notice/surprised by ANGRY fighting with the big blue Opaline Gourami and the Angels. They were attacking her and then she went right back at them and gave them a couple good bites, etc. Never bothers anyone unless she is antagonized over and over and can really dish out a can of whoop!

She likes to meander all around the top area between the plants looking for snacks.

After the confusion of trying to see what was going on, saw it was the Angelfish eggs - a huge number of them plastered over two smallish Anubias leaves.

I acclimated the Gourami to the 29G which is just sitting empty. The other fish are small and fast and will get out of the way of the Angels easily. Gourami is a big target and won't understand that the wandering slowly around is pissing off the Angel pair, two biting at her so sad.

Added a large cluster of floating water wisteria over there as there is just a fake tree log deco since there wasn't a light, there is enough light coming of the one end of the light next to it I think for the one plant.

Might move over a couple more plants floating Wisteria as the baby Platy are about the size that they wouldn't get eaten. At least tomorrow I will move over the bigger Platy babies. Add a little light.

The Gourami doesn't seem to care if they are there and 1/4 - 1/3". Less than half were tiny ones - two batches, growing nicely.

It seems crowded in the breeder net. There are about 11-12 Platy.

Pwc on the SW nano refill evap on all SW & FW.

One of my Rock Flower Anemones is acting odd and seems to close up half the time the last couple days why I did a pwc before tomorrow. Need to trim the Macro Algae too tomorrow.

Got a new gooseneck desk lamp for my planted bowl. Planning to upgrade it to a 2G vintage style glass cylinder canister shape. It is a brandy snifter bowl now maybe not quite 2G.

Was VERY excited the other day to find a vintage style turtle bowl in the XL size for 7.50 at a ReStore. Also got a few cylinder vases & containers for Wabi - Kusa from the Goodwill for .99-3.99. Much better deal than at the hobby store. Could have got some cheaper at other thrift stores but did not have the time for "shopping" around. Mission accomplished!

I think the big turtle bowl will be a shrimp planted bowl with plants that can grow out the top .

It is sad but I actually did have a soft shell turtle from the dime store when I was little, like 3 years old, which lived in the same kind of bowl with one rock in the center, on a coffee table, then later a side table. It got a water change every few days. It was my first water pet, if you don't count the duck.

Might try a couple Guppies in the pond to see if they do alright sometime this week.
