Haha! Glad u got it fixed

I got a sweet new canister in the mail today, so I hooked that up. Also got what was told is a Rose Tip Anemone for free that one of my clowns already started hosting, just hope it doesn't move on me! I like that fact that I have clowns hosting at either end of the tank The "rock" the Nem came on is fake & I don't really care for it but It came with some goodies! 1 tiny red brittle star, a boat load of Asterina Stars & some sort of shrimp that i didn't notice till it was in the tank, looking hard for it so i can snap a pic & get an id. Did a wc & rescaped the 150, now I'm waiting on it to fill so I can do 8 more wc's lol. Bought some superglue so I can glue my monster Anubius from www.peabodysparadise.com on some driftwood. Shaping up to be a pretty good day!!

Got my fish in this morning debating on if i should add my 3 females to the 125g got them in breeder net now since i had to run to work as soon as i acclimated them :/ I know my comps gotta stay in the grow out tank ..
Rescaped the 125g partially stopped when my gang of albino socolofis decided my arm wasnt welcome on the right side of the tank and started attacking those little boogers tore my arm up felt like wasps stinging

Not great pics but here is a idea what i got fish wise ill have to snap a pic of the rescape later

I got a gold mystery snail for my betta! I'm hoping it'll entertain him so he'll stop destroying his pretty tail . It was moving around at first but it's been in it's shell for the last hour and a half. I hope nothing went wrong and it perks up soon. My betta was absolutely fascinated when the snail was moving.

Snail's maybe scared of him or maybe just resting. They can stay hiding in their shell for days. How are your water parameters?

That's normal for a snail to be immobile as autumnsky said. If you see it hasn't moved for a day or two do the sniff test. I don't know what kind of tank you have but don't be surprised if you got get eggs & if there's not enough space above the water line they will climb out to lay eggs.

Been thinking of which tanks to downsize to/change stock of, and which fish should go where. It just isn't working out. I think I will just have too many and will need to find some a new home.

Very frustrating not "feeling" a clear plan. Also changing decor and mixing it up when I combine - doesn't seem to be working out in my thought plan either.

They're in a 2 gallon with a filter but it doesn't look like its gonna cycle so I do daily water changes to keep ammonia under .25. I guess he got freaked out by my my betta bothering him.
