I did a 30% water change on the 55. I pinched off some of the tops of the water wisteria, and picked off any dead leaves on the plants. It was my first time using seachem Prime water conditioner. I took off the little tetra pump. I don't need it. I'll save it for a hospital/qt tank. I organized all my fish food and water conditioners. I flipped my background around again. I was just not digging the "ocean" scene for a freshwater tank.

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

Bubbles, I love your nursery tank.

I did a 50% water change on my 75 gallon. This weekend, I'll tear down the canister and give the housing and biomedia a good rinsing.....

Thanks LyndaB! I re arranged it like a bazillion Ike's before I was happy. Everyone we go to a home improvement store I ask my dad for another mini pot ( there like $0.30 each so he would buy them all for me if I asked for them)

Water change in nursery tank, fed teachers fish, fed my fish, fed my fish some more because they are so funny the way they eat, wrote my fish list ( birthday fish wish list) of supplies and fish for my tanks, and Seriously considered the work and time a 30 gallon angelfish breeder tank would cost me, decided it was worth it because they are gorgeous! Now to my best friend CL to find a stand.....

Added a floating betta log to Alfred's tank. He is already hanging out in it. Also got a zebra snail for the tank, but have a horrible feeling I may have killed him. The bag fell off the counter and onto the carpet. It didn't open, so maybe he was cushioned. I semi drip acclimated him - put him in a cup with LFS water, then topped up slowly with tank water. Dumped half of it, and topped up slowly with tank water. Then picked him up and put him in Alfred's tank. he hasn't moved yet though, so I am worried.

Anyway, back to the regularly scheduled topic...
In most places it is just blue dye, which is used to keep them from being stressed out by seeing all the other Bettas in the cups around them. It's a good thing that the water is blue.

I fed the fish and realized the light in my 5 gallon is messed up. The bulb part detatched from the screw in part. My boyfriend got it out and now I just have to replace the bulb.

Ooh that makes since! Not medication just so they can't see the others! Brilliant!

I really didn't want to do a wc but checked my levels regardless. My nitrates were a little elevated in both betta tanks so alas I did one. Fed every one. Now time for bed..
