Surprisingly some can shut their trap door and they can stay moist for sometimes days.

Oh I still didn't get any pics of the little angel babies. For some reason I get mainly not a good focus on the camera on the phone. Maybe it's the color of the back and sides of the tank, a light green tone and not good at all for pics.

After a very large pwc and a good dose of more food, the baby Angels are really actively swimming all around the tank. They got beef heart yesterday and really seemed to like it.

After I put it in, I noticed it moved around soon. Yay..!
But soon it came out again(naughty dude) and was soon put back in. The snail doesn't seem to be affected. It is active and always moving around the bucket. Can't wait to have the fish back in the aquarium.

Anytime the snails head up in a mass fashion, or head out of the tank, always check the water parameters of the tank! Often there is something wrong. Maybe even do a pwc just to make sure it is all well. It obviously doesn't like something.

Hi. I did pwc after testing.

I noticed two surprise blue platy babies.

I'm wondering if my first platy, a red wag, is pregnant. I got her at the end of May. She's so much bigger than the others.

I brushed off the leaves of the new plants and adjusted them into the substrate as needed.

Dumped the build up out of the bottom of my AC 70 & swished everything in a bucket of tank water to remove any loose debris. Still haven't done a hard clean of the filter since I am hesitant to do so since I just can't stand the thought of loosing much bacteria.

Also trimmed the 29 gallon along with planting some Temple Compacta in the place of a bit of the Mudwort. I then planted all the Mudwort and leftover Temple Compacta in my 10 gallon.

I dosed ferts in both tanks after doing a quick water test. The 29 gallon is really eating nitrates.


FTS of the 10 gallon

Their tank is under maintenance and right now they are in a tub. Surely they won't like the small tub compared to their 50 gallon home.

I got an air pump and bubbler for my goldfish tank. I'd love to get something more decorative but this will do for now. Not 100% sure on the placement but I'm hoping it will get some better exchange and circulation going.

What a pretty moor!

I had one of those neoprene tubes. I liked it a lot.
