During the moving process, my last tank 37G at the old house has been unplugged at least 2x for unknown for sure periods of time and now I have ICH.

I am moving it today to the new house already started moving up the temp it should be at 84 by the end of today. I need to get out my few snails some of the plants and I will probably use this as an excuse to change this tank from white construction sand to black sand or Eco-Complete. Any other ideas would be appreciated! lol But probably go bare bottom for the treatment period with heat and salt. I also have a UV sterilizer given to me but have never tried it out, probably will now!

Right now it is Cardinals and a few Guppies and some Cories and other community fish. But it will eventually go to my moms house in a few months and she will have a hope to be breeding pair of Koi Angels.

Yesterday filled pond and added water to 37G for evaporation.

Found out my prefilter fell off in my Red Cherry Edge tank and I know I had 1-2 shrimp due with new babies so I hope I caught it in time !

Trying a new food for the bottom feeders, Omega One Shrimp Pellets. Never considered it as I thought it was just a pellet consisting of shrimp. BUT it has so much more variety of some good stuff and very little wheat flour!

Also posted a drawing for this if anyone is interested in entering...

I use the omega one shrimp pellets and they're a hit!! My black skirts eat them whole, the cores love em, Bolivian rams enjoy them and my ghost shrimp carry them around and defend the heck out of them! Even my male betta will pick at them.

Changed my 20 gal grow-out tank for my yellow labs to aragonite. They're like little kids digging in the sand fun to watch and the lighting is so much better than the dark gravel I had.
