Did a 50%water change on my 35g live bearer tank and moved some plants around!
Looking forward to my new plants coming in the mail, hopefully my ecosystem will mature and the nitrates will naturally go down with my new plants.....

Yesterday I switched from gravel to sand. Happy to finally make the switch it was long overdue, best thing was I got the sand for free.

Today I did a water change now that most of the sand has settled, also I took my filter and cleaned the inside of it.

I know the Spongebob theme is not normal for a cichlid tank. Started out as a community tank... I plan on getting some more hiding spots for them.

Fresh2o was right - that's where I got mine.

A word of warning - don't fall in love with anything until you find out if it's been sold or not. That's experience talking. That said, the pieces I ended up with are really quite lovely. One of them doesn't work in my 55 so I'm already trying to figure out how to re-scape my 15 to make it fit. They're that nice.

Added liquid ferts. Went to one of the rental apartments to fix a sink and seen they had a betta in a 1.5 container! No filtration or anything. I kept my mouth shut, for now...

It is hard to keep your mouth shut when you see a fish being mistreated like that

I hate to see that... when they have them in those little plstic bowls with lids.. makes me sd for all of them and they look so miserable. the pwople at walmart had no idea how to tell tge differnce between male and female i had to explain to them that they only had males and the dumb chick i was talking to was like " oh i never knew the differwnce i guess you learn sonething New everyday" i was thinkin.. you work in this department.. and you dont know what youre talking about? Sounds like she needs to learn quite a few new things.

She also had no idea that having a deas fish in the tank is harmful to the other fish.. i was told they scoop them out in the morning and at night...
