That's awful for you i bought 5 blue jelly shrimp thought they had gone but they're still there. You paid a lot for them too.

I had a single Blue tiger orange eye shrimp and a single MALE red cherry shrimp for 24 hours! I found what was left of them floating around the bottom of the tank. I discovered it was my Glowlights that were being nasty! I caught them nipping my Betta's fins. I am also thinking to maybe get rid of my Neons and keeping only my CPDS (celestial Pearl Danio), 3 Endlers, Bunch of Fry, and 1 female guppy in a breeder net because she eats everything! Its a 29 gallon and I think that will be plenty with my cories. I think my CPDS will be more active with the endlers. Plus I have Cherry Shrimp on the way! My female Guppy will go into the 5 gallon by herself.

What I am supposed to do today Water changes, what I am going to do?
NOTHING

Went to my LFS, The Wet Spot in Portland OR- it s fabulous!, gave them 6 orange Platys & a Rubberlip that were not being nice to my other fish. Came home with 6 more Sterbai Cories. Just need to find the two Angelfish I want for my centerpiece fish & I ll be done stocking. Total stock will be- 6 Wagtail Platys plus the 5-7 fry that appeared ( hope they realize they have to grow up to be nice & play well with others, they re so dang cute!), 3 Oto s, 9 Sterbai & the as yet to be acquired AF. Oh and 1 remaining Penquin Tetra, the other 5 died , he was going to go back to the LFS but could NOT catch him).

75% pwc on my 46g bf community tank. Had to throw out the air pump and 6inch stone. The stone was broke in 2 and the pump was a dual outlet pump that had both diaphrams cracked. Hooked up my backup pump and another 6inch stone. Scubbed the heck out of 3 of the 4 sides. Added start right and api aquarium salt. Rinsed both my filter cartridges in hot water. Cleaned the glass top and filter covers.
