I grabbed the 4 corydoras out of my 10 gallon and put them into my 46 gallon. Now they school, and my firemouth has come out of hiding. Interesting. I also learned that this is one of the fish I didn't do the right research on. I'm only recently learning they grow to 3 inches, so they're a perfect add on fish to my breeding pair of firemouths... whenever I get the pair... and they start breeding... some day.

A few people told me no, but to be honest the change in that tank is huge. All the fish involved are 10x happier.

Changed 75% of the water today for the crayfish and puffer tank.

Planning to buy more equipment for my reef tank. The more I think about my reef tank, the less interest I have in my freshwater tanks. There is a temptation to ditch all my freshwater tanks.

Add water to the pond, and pwc for half of the tanks. Looks like an injured mystery snail decided to die and mucked up the 2G snail and moss vase.

Did some scape planning on my 72G bowfront - finally going up this week!

Dosed Flourish in all the tanks.

45 G Terraphyte Tank

Today...

Replaced a couple of older Chinese Evergreens, see attached pics. The tank has minimal mechanical filtration, just one Hagen AC 50. The emersed land plants keep the water pure. No traces of nitrogens in the tank water. Tank is heavily stocked with roughly 75 Fancy Guppies and two larger than normal Bronze Corys, 3 plus inches long that have been in tank four years or so.

Land plants do a much better job of purifying the tank water than mechanical filtration.

Still going to battle with the Malaysian Trumpet Snails that are taking over my 29. Plucked a ziplock bag full of large ones, then siphoned up a ton of little ones.

Wish I had more took what I had out of my 37 for my 55 which were only about 10, have you checked on the amount and how often you feed? Usually that will stop them from reproduction.

I've cut back my feedings to 3 days a week. But those 3 days, I'm sure I feed too much.
