Decided to kick the Betta out of his well established 2.5G and get it ready for the Orange Eye Blue Tiger Shrimp, I think they will arrive tomorrow. Cleaned the sand and did a min rescape, pretty much the same.

Change my snail bowl to a two gallon bowl and added some tan Cherry shrimp to see if they can stay alive in there with only the plants supplying them air. Snails do fine.

Cleaned the filter in the 37 and added water. Added water to the Koi pond.

Spent an hour trying to solve my foaming water 6.6 Edge tank problem, 90+% water change, wiped down everything rinsed filter and media with treated clean water, and took out the DW, and took off the sponge pre-filter, and filled it back up.

Still getting .25 ammonia from the tap too.

Now off to work!
Where did the betta go?

Thought I was off to work...

Stopped by the post office to pick up the mail on the way to work, and also, just to make sure my OEBT shrimp didn't arrive. The tracking number said they were still in New York, 1500 miles away.

SURPRISE!!!

I had to run them home, and I was late to work

AND the heat pack was cold, and there were supposed to be 12 but I could only count maybe 11. And 4 of them looked like they were born the day before they were shipped to me! [-], as big as the dash in the brackets, but pale and really thin and pretty much invisible...



There are two nicely colored blue ones, one is 3mm and one maybe 2mm.

That seller should be ashamed of himself, was from ebay. Didn't ship them right after I paid for them, and some of these shrimp weren't even born when I paid for them! Very negative experience.

And my water is still foaming in my Edge tank

after she thought about it she said go ahead it's your cave anyway

so now I have to go get some semi flat black paint so I can get this done before she changes her mind lol
