Hmmmm...

Drove 20 miles to LFS, spent 2 hours drooling/shopping/picking my LFS owner's brain! Drove home.


Boiled new driftwood 4+ hours, planted 3 Anubias, acclimated/added 6 fish to 2 different tanks, fertilized my Vallisneria Spiralis and Swords (2 different tanks).


Best part = ALL of it, except the drive to LFS!

Worst part = Only the drive!! Traffic is horrible here!

Just an FYI there's a long going thread "what did you do to your tank today" these will probably be merged.

Catching shrimp in any tank sucks lol. It's bad when you spend 15 minutes and give up because your outsmarted by a shrimp.

Easiest way to catch shrimp in any size tank IME is with two nets. They move backwards so catch their attention with a net in front of them then slide your net up behind them. When they take off cause your front net is too close, they will shoot right into the net behind them. Problem solved.

a lot were pewee's, they were so cheap. They didn't have any red on them. Lesson learned. only buy from trusted sellers.
