Set up my minnow trap again. Hoping to catch a few more sticklebacks and flathead minnows! It's nice having fish in my 55 again. I'm loving the subdued colors and natural look of my tank. It's like I took a part of the river out and put it directly in my living room.

I'm currently acclimating a bunch of sticklebacks! My pH matches that of the river, I just have to temp acclimate them. The river is ~60F and my tank is 74F. It took 2 hours last time!

Well I've had an awful day, in the middle of cleaning my elephant nose tank my hubby took out the cave to empty the water out and give it a rinse and out fell a kuhli into the sink caught it before it disappeared down the drain then another three fell out put them back in my tank looked like they were going to die, moving about now. Then i found a dead shrimp! I, ve removed the cave one unhappy elephant nose.

Today I rescued a clown loach from a decoration. -.- My 3 clown loaches and rubber eel were all hiding in this fake log thing, so we got rid of it and replaced it with what I guess can be described as a stone table with NO HOLES except underneath. This afternoon, the eel and all 3 clown loaches had gotten into the decoration without moving it out of place and one of them managed to lodge himself into a space JUUUUUST big enough for him and then couldn't get back out. *sigh* lol

He's doing fine now, but has a tiny bit of a torn fin from it.
