We replaced our fifth new rainbow. They had blackberry shrimp in the same tank, and I desperately tried to figure out where they could live in our current tanks. Not with pea puffers, not with kulis, and not in the Spec that's totally meant for ramshorns. They are pretty neat, though.

Yesterday did my PWC in the Biube, main tank and in the Big Daddy Orb. Spotted PLANARIA in Big Daddy. Not surprised since many of the plants added to the tank were from my nursery before I treated. Pulled all the snails out I could find and dosed with fenbendozole. Die planaria die.

I'gor is doing well. Eating like a pig and begs for food the moment he sees me.

Watching the main tank for any signs of illness since I pulled the two neons out last week.

Shrimp can live with RH.....

I have a planted vase with a plant rated bulb in a cool desk lamp and shrimp, with a couple RH - they seem pretty happy so far.

This is the dark Blue Velvets new home... The light gets the plants to produce the O2, right next to my chair and they are fun to watch.

Planaria - Curse you!

~~~~~
Watched Fire Shrimp and Pods scurry around the macroalgae tank.

Spend a half hour straightening cords and tubbing and matching up stuff that should go together in the storage closet. Have made good progress over the last couple months of taking it in tiny bits of cleaning up. some s just cleaning up the last mess I made but it adds up. Found a couple things I was either missing or forgot I had.

Then watched the bowl above with the DBV shrimp and snails.

Maybe heading out to pick up refill of 15G prepared SW ~hour drive there then also back. I used up the 10G SW I just got plus what I had still remaining from before and hate to not have any supply on hand.

Considering mixing my own need to dig out the RO unit fro storage and then test it and it just seems like a big project I don't want to do atm.

Pwc on the Tangerine Tiger Shrimp /Chilis tank and then the 12G Edge Nano fish tank. Ember Tetras are great color and the extra 3 Sundadanios I got were nice because the rest of them seem more colorful now.

More pwc and maybe a clean out of the canister filter (or tomorrow for that).

Scooped out a dead Cory and buried him in the garden. He hadn't looked well for a while, glad he's not suffering anymore. RIP little guy!

Added a timer to my circulation pump, vacuumed out the some fish waste, cleaned debris out of the AC 70, and added back the 25% of water that was removed while vacuuming. All in my 29 gallon

Yesterday cleaned out one of the drawers of the filing cabinet stand for the 6.6G. Also collected numerous empty and almost empty food bags and containers used a couple up and will be using them up in the next couple days.

Threw out old expired foods. Then went around to the cabinets and collected all the foods I don't use/or fish don't like and bagged them up for next month's CAS fish meeting mini auction.

Shopped around for tanks used and new. Waiting to hear back on one new in box tank on CL. Small spec. I need the transformer for the light for my SpecV, the replacement part is nearly the same cost after shipping. The tank would fit as a small pods/ macro algae under my 12g.

Going an hour drive today to pick up my Anemone shrimp and pom pom crab, if they don't sell them off first. No rock flowers anemones came in.
