Shipped off snail babies this morning. Holding my breath USPS and the odds are ever in their favor.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

I woke up and was wondering why one of my angels had a reddish eye and others don't. He's the oldest among the 4. So maybe others will end up like him when they grow...!

Did a 40% water change in my 29 and dosed a third of the weekly dose of Thrive. Trimmed some of the purple mudwort and planted the clippings. Got to scrape some of the gsa off the glass. Got to figure out if I want to start feeding the snails and my oto algae wafers or maybe zucchini

Set up the new AC 30 on my 10 gallon. Dosed it with thrive and topped off the water. Dosed ammonia to 1ppm again. Hope to get some nerites in the tank soon and might move the neons in here if the fin nipping doesn't stop in the 29. If I do move them I'll see if I can find something more compatible with the serpae's

I could not stand looking at the mess in the shrimp tank so I pulled out a majority of the guppy grass. Still clearing up but much better now. RCS tank done, now onto the yellow neo tank...Click image for larger version

It's a modified version of this:

I adhoc added the skirt after it was all done. Helps it stand upright with just sc where I thought they looked best. The mouth is a few French knots and the antennae are a chain with knotted ends.

Lol. That guppy grass was a thicket. Shrimp are probably thinking "man it's bright in here now.

I moved three puffer eggs from the sand to a basket of moss. I think the female was upset that they were gone. This is not the first time I've seen her eggs, though, and I want them to have a better chance of success.

I took out a bunch of AR mini because it really seemed to be overtaking everything. I have it in a bucket. If you want it, send me a message and I'll send it for the price of shipping.

But I just love watching them...

Found that the little Albino BN babies are around a 1/3 inch saw a couple just hanging out in the cave with the poppa BN. I need to try and save them. What are left.

I think a few may have got out of the cave (and chomped up) because the big Angelfish were hanging around the cave a little more closely /intently, than I had ever noticed before which is what caught my attention to take a peek.

Last time (last week) I looked into the cave, couldn't see past the poppa fish.

Now I am wondering about whether I should try and sneak them into the Betta Habitat. But have seen him posture towards the snail, didn't see a bite but it is in their nature.

They are too small right now!??? Thinking, thinking, thinking...

So now I have baby fish, Am happy that they love the tank enough to do their thing, but am sad I can't save all of them.

Yeah, I am sitting here watching one of the Angelfish stalking the cave right now!!!

Gotta go see if I can save them. :/

Tested the water in the 29 to see where everything was 24hrs after the water change and dosed another 1/3 of Thrive making 2/3 for the week. Will probably hold off on the last 1/3 until the end of the week.

Started my hard scape on my 10 after collecting, testing, and cleaning some rocks this evening. Tweaked the water level in the 10 after refilling what I took out for the scape and dosed my last half of Thrive while filling. Lowered the level just a bit to increase surface agitation/movement.

Pic of the hard scape so far on the 10. Got a lot of planting to do once I can find some plants or have to trim the 29. The water is still a bit cloudy from stirring up the sand.
