Makes for a good cover for tailless's spot.

Last night I spent a couple hours emptying 5 gal buckets of their snail inhabitants and picking through sand for teensy tiny Florida native trumpet snails, so as to not mix them with the MTS.....dividing a bunch of Ramshorns by color groups into different tanks to keep the colors good.

Added plants back into the tank that had Ich as it seems to have disappeared, but I am still on quarantine for another week or so to be sure.

Spent a few minutes looking at my 72G puzzle tank, what is going on with it??? My bloated Gourami, and what steps, I should take next.

Thinking I will need to take the 23 or there abouts baby Rainbow Blue Platy to the local store to trade them in.

Also the 30+ Mystery snails as well...

Need to sell a BUNCH of plants in my last two buckets and the overload from my other tanks.

Found some nice medium bright blue OEBT for sale locally for a reasonable price so will be getting at least 12, but they will be babies 1/3 inch.

The ones available from the online seller are just not right color, I emailed them and they said it was a lower grade shrimp than they had previously had. So will be buying locally instead, at least the local guy has more available now!!! Probably going to pick them up Friday!!! Happy Mother's Day for me!!! And a new 50lb bag of black sand for the 37G.

Going to pick out an awesome new metal Background for my 37 too, hopefully we can decide on one pattern we both like. Its going to look amazing, I just know it!

Well schedule changed, no backgrounds today.

Went to the local fish store to SEE what they had, and found something really neat!!!

Sundadanio axelrodi, "Blue"/ aka Rasbora Sundadanio axelrodi "blue", or Rasbora axelrodi "Blue".

They get 3/4 inch long and are kind of Charcoal with the amazing blue stripe.

I put them in my Edge 6.6G and there are 3 b. Brigittae Rasbora Chilis in there. The lfs was out of Chilis, still .

Daughter bought these for me and they are hanging out by themselves in the tank, looks like a male and a female.

Lfs said they come in on occasion, and they add them to the order every time but they don't come in too often. They really add a lovely flash of blue color in the tank!!! Wish I had 8 more.

Pwc on Betta tanks.

Here is a great video (not mine) you can see how great they will look! This is from Eden Marel. She has beautiful stuff!

Had a TERRIBLE fish day. Still battling illness with my giant clown loach, still bummed out at the death of my baby clown loach.... Did about 75% WC on that tank and decided to move my loach to a makeshift nursing home. Put my betta in the glass 2.5 gallon tank, and used his 5 gallon to make the nursing home. Did some switching up of heaters and rigging of airstones and valves, added the loach's favorite hiding cave and some sand, and tank is now settling until tomorrow. Dumped about 4 gallons of water all over my living room floor in the process.
Here's where it gets good. Went to put the glass tops back on to my 110 gallon, and they flipped out of my hand and smashed in the side of that little 2.5 gallon tank that I had just put the betta in. It immediately spewed all that water all over my counter and my kitchen floor. SAVED THE BETTA THOUGH!!! He lived in his original betta cup for a few hours, and my hubby went to wal mart for something and came back with a little round 3.5 gallon setup to put the betta in until he can have his home back(I think he felt bad because I was leaning on my 110 crying because I'm having a bad day, lol). What a day.
First picture is the sick loach, second is my smashed 2.5, and the last one is the Betta's hotel room.

Wow, you have had a bad day! - can completely understand. I am sorry for the loss of the baby Clown. I am having problems with a tank too, and lots of other issues recently... It is so hard when things pile on top of each other!

Tomorrow is another day! I hope it is a better one for you and yours!
