Today I added new guppies to my ten gallon along with three shrimp ( my first time with shrimp). Also began building a stand prototype for my future fishroom. Lastly, I ordered a new light, a Yescom 129 LED, very reasonably priced, plus a couple of sponge filters I thru in to the ole Amazon Cart. Decent fish day!

ROFL!!!

That was a funny pic!

****

Did a 15G pwc on their tank as the largest floating Wisteria plant ~ 12 inches around, and all the duck weed turned pale like melt /bleached out, the other one Wisteria (6-7") was fine - green, anyway, I think fouled the water I had 3 dead babies. When I got home tonight. Very odd. The rest of the babies were swimming around looking alright - hope that was the extent of it.

A bunch of them were chasing the tubing around a little bit to see what was going on while I cleaned out the muck from the bottom of the tank.

Added Stresscoat and extra Prime too.

Female Ender is doing well, she is being escorted off and on by the 2 males.

I saw one of the baby Endlers in the other tank.

New SW fish seem active and look like they are eating around the tank.

Cleaned some of the stones in my tank. Behold the power of bleach:

I tested my water after I noticed my female Bolivian ram had Black vertical bars (I'm assuming from stress?). The water looks good at 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 5 nitrate. I'm not sure what her deal is. Maybe the male is being annoying?
I also spotted some new guppy fry!

Last night I did my maintenance and PWC on my Nursery, Red's Biorb and I'gors Biube.

Small tanks are a joy!

But vacuuming up half eaten snails is a bit icky though.

Did an emergency water change on the 10g platy nursery tonight. Events conspired to make me neglect that the last couple of nights, and last night I gave them their first cube of bloodworms, and... tonight I found the ammonia at 1.0.

So, 20% tonight plus an overdosing of prime, to be followed with two more 20% changes tomorrow. Good thing it's a bare-bottom tank. Makes it a lots easier to find the uneaten food.

Pulled plants out of the Big Daddy biorb today. Most of the guppy grass, subwassertang and fissidens fontanus are out. Not sure what to do with it?

Just some trimming on my dwarf grass in my cycling tank & got some ramshorn snails in a little 2.5 to start breeding for a few weeks before I get my pea puffer. (So I'll have at least a little stock of them.)

They have a heater and some plastic decor. Didn't figure they needed anything else really. If anyone has suggestions though I'll take them. The more I can breed the better. 😉

Trimmed the ludwigia repens in the 20-long substantially. I'm really surprised at how much I pulled out. This should improve flow in the tank, though.

Also disconnected the hoses and re-seated them on that same tank's pressurized CO2 set up. There's been a trilling whistle that I'm sure is a leak, but I'll be darned if I can find it. Fingers crossed it was just a badly secured hose and that this fixes it.
