Awesome fish!! He seemed to enjoy his snack. I bet water changes are exciting in that tank. Leather Gloves?

Water changes is my best time of the week for me. Barney only gets excited when he see his cup of food. He gets scared when the siphon enters the water though.

Very cool. Puffers are so cute when they eat, they look so happy! I did my water changes on the freshwater tanks today, my puffers will get theirs when I get home tomorrow.

New Aglaonema Plants in Tanks

Hello again AA...

Added two Aglaonema "Cutlass" plants to my terraphyte/biotope tanks. Using a little liquid fert in addition to the nitrogens the fish produce. Plant experts say to "mist" the leaves with a spray bottle containing treated tap water and a source of micro nutrients.

Appartently, since the plants come from a humid environment, misting the leaves mimics humid conditions. The plant roots take in the water nutrients and the leaves remove excess water from droplets that form on the leaves. Supposedly similar to "pearling" in aquatic plants. Room temp is at 72 degrees. Aglaonema is supposed to be slow growing, but the growth is considerable from what I've noticed over the past couple of months. The land plant grows better emersed than potted.

Water properties in the tanks remain stable with water changes at a gallon or two a week. Pretty amazing since the tanks are 38 to 55 gallons. Fish continue to breed normally.

Just an update.

B

filled up the 46 bow. decided to go with flora max as the substrate. got the filter running so things can settle and clear overnight. will search for plants tomorrow.

setup the 10 gallon and moved over my angel pair and remaining eggs. this is the first batch for all of us so it's an experience. i used alot of the water from the existing tank to seed the 10 and 46 so the 44 corner got a good water change. and as a reward for everyone behaving, they got a nice dinner of frozen brine shrimp

i'm exhausted and havent even looked at the salt tanks!
