Poor little guys! I had a Betta living, it seemed happily for a couple of months, with some African Dwarf Frogs they had a little rock cave hideout too, just in case, then one day there was a spot on one and a couple days later, I see him dive bomb one. So you just never know!

******************

This week has been hectic as will next week too. Thought I would have the time but didn't so will be moving two tanks in the next couple days, 16G and 2.5 OEBT and my 6.6G Edge and Betta.

Added water to everything did a 1/3rd pwc on my 72G.

Found the Blue Rainbow Patties with at least 5 babies in there, in the QT tank.

Had a bit of a laugh since my thought-to-be dwarf Vals are growing to be a foot plus tall!!! Maybe they are mixed since some ARE staying small.

One of my new Tiger Lily bulbs has 15 leaves on it now and several of them are floating on the surface.

My 37G tank which had damaged plants from the heat and salt from treating my Ich is coming back. I got my new packs of Ferka Stemma and Rosetta and there are new nice green leaves everywhere, like it is spring time. Next to the half dead skeletonized sick ones, so I guess when I finally move it over to the new house, I will rescape it with new Garnet sand and trim all the old and everything will have a new start!

Finally, I found a flower shoot on one of my small Swords, in the 72G, Eco-Complete substrate, with Ferka substrate ferts added., it is appx. 3 inches from the surface.

Maybe I should half ignore my tanks more often!!!

Sorry this is so long!

This happened last night during feeding. I dropped in a bloodworm cube and as normal, my fish went nuts. A chunk came off any my female bolivian ram hit it like a freight train. In the time that I have had her, she has never taken to eating bloodworms. Maybe now she likes them. Today was water changes on both tanks. as soon as I move in a few months, I'll be setting up my 55 gallon!
