Autumn's Zoo Med Paludarium Habitat Kit

Had planned to get the recent additions of aquarium plants set up in new thrift store glass vases. Thinner containers which will fit in the ledge of the window sill to get the most daylight - evidently people think the totally no extra cost starbucks trenta cups don't have the best decor aesthetic. Only paid about a dollar each for each of 4 ReStore containers.

But didn't have enough time to get that completed. Got the thread updated which after making sure all the pics are not up side down, had to do other stuff!

Thinned out the red root floaters today. Probably grabbed about a third of them out, packaged them up, and they are now on their way to goatnad!

Sounds like a great new home!

I have been trying to get the Thai Betta better but...better a little isn't well yet. I decided to just use the meds, gave a few more days as it seemed maybe like he was getting better.

Dosed Kanplex this morning with a 90% water change. Hoping this gets him well. He seems a bit like he is still in a delicate condition

Fed him his buffet frozen defrosted food - he got only about 15 minutes to eat as I had to get going to work.

Ordered a large pretty cool looking
17/ Bucephalandra var. Red Biblis - $35
you can see the pic on junglefowl's recent Classifieds thread plant #17
Way more money than I had intended to spend (what's new?)

And finally got 5 stems of Ludwigia Arcuata/Repens ( $5 ) Been looking to get as well.
Also got some Red Moss which I actually had been planning to buy for maybe 3 years! And since I have to pay shipping, I thought I would just buy something cool too - the Buce. Excellent value for the size. Will have some for the Paludarium and the Betta tank and the Shrimp tank.

Fern/Bolbitis, Plants Package, Moss, Bucephalandra and Driftwood

Oh I hope I don't kill it all!

Did a 3G pwc on the 12G Edge (with the 1 PRL ) appx 10/12 Boraras Brigittae.

There was a bunch of leaves on the Java Fern with BBA, trimmed off about 20 leaves, pushed the ferns down farther away from the light. Stirred up a big mess, changes the pre filter.

Did a big 4G pwc on the 12G SW nano and a couple gallon on the 6.6G Edge SW.

Added water for the evap. on the rest of the tanks.

Fed the Thai Betta in his cup. 50% pwc & meds.

We have NEW baby albino cory cats. The eggs were only 3 days old, and started to develop tails. There are only about 5 that are active now, and many eggs had fungus growth on them. But as new fishkeepers, we are tickled. The guppies are reproducing like crazy, and we pulled the adult females and put them in a separate tank as guppies are hard to 'adopt out'. On Wednesday we changed water in all 3 tanks, and they are crystal clear now. Nothing 'to write home about', but the cory eggs and fry really tickled us.

Not much to report today besides dosing iron and trimming the tops of the hygrophila corymbosa. I'm really trying promote leaves and sideshoots to grow out from the bottom of the stems.
