Never had one of those which eats everything in sight! Anubias are supposed to be more resistant to being eaten due to their more solid leaves. Time to start feeding a chunk of cucumber or zucchini or something to keep it away from the real plants.

aahhhh caught in the act! I would call that one DE-struck-TOR! And give it its own tank with Elodia, blanched foods and algae tabs!


Cleaned filter and pwc on 37G.

Added a couple apple and mystery snails to the Betta tank to see if they eat Hydra, some posts suggest they do. The Betta probably isn't gonna like it. Supposed to get my medicine back this week from the gal I let borrow it for the Hydra. So in the mean time...snails it is!

50 percent water change in 125 tilly tank. completly broke down and reset up cannister filter on his tank (theres 3 other filters for the bb). wife hung fake plants in the 55 and took some floating driftwood for it to. moved catfish. realized he was alot bigger than before, need to wait till this weekend after hes chilled out to remove half the rocks and make just 1 or 2 caves. considering instead to take the 7 cories the 2 bn`s and clown pleco out of the 150 and put them in the 55 and move that catfish over to the 150. Still up in the air over it. I have another cat in a 125 but also male and they dont play well together. Tank as it was after moving him, he wedged himself in the first cave on the left next to his hide-a-log.

I have quite a wide range of food for both of my tanks. Flakes,shrimp pellets, bottom feeder tablets and algae wafers. They are in with neons, i am praying that they don't get eaten! But I have plenty of cover so they should be ok.

How often do you Change your water?

So I am in one of my LFS and this one happened to be the one that gave me the Ich I have been. They are nice and I like to chat, I just need to make sure to Qt for a 3 week period. So I see this guy and he is looking in the tank, both Salt and Fresh. Thinking hey a new Aquarist potential Friend! I start asking about his tank. He has now joined our community! Welcome Toddytanks!
