I added rocks to my 110 gallon, redid my betta tank, added a mystery snail to his tank, and did pwc's on the goldie tank and my son's tank.
Here's before and after of the betta tank (before is the sponge bob tank), and the new rocks for the big'un.

I added 3 flathead minnows and a three spined stickleback to my 55 gallon native species tank.

Watched my new cleaner shrimp. He's awesome!

Got my Garnet sand Monday morning but was working all evening and all day Tues. Changed my snail bowl from multi blue with green gravel to the Garnet sand. I really like it. My pic looked bad so I will try again later and post one.

1/3 wc on 37G, pulled plants from lots of tanks to send in the mail , pwc on OEBT tank, PWC on 32G Rainbow blue platys with babies. Added water to 6.6G Edge, still not foaming any more, realized when I cleaned it I hadn't plugged in my heater, brrrrrrr... then watched the two female guppies and one was popping out babies, and shrimp 16G.

Counted my OEBT shrimp best I could. Looks like 9 at least, found out I missed out on the local for sale OEBT, guy was sold out by the time he got back to me.

Here's the sand from Emerald Creek in Idaho USA where they mine star Garnets. It was 50 pounds for $18.99. But very dense, so I may have to get another bag for the 37G when I decide to change it over. Colors will vary depending on loccation and what type of material/garnet they are mining for. This was as coarse sand as I could get, I think it was 36 grit (packaged for sand blasting).

Did a quick water change on the 10 gallon for my new betta before he got here, and ended up making more of a mess on the sand than I took out... Tiny plant bits are now all over the sand again, but the water is nice and clean. Got my package with the betta I ordered from aquabid, and now he is acclimating into his new home!! So excited, it feels like I've been waiting for him for months.
