Also removed my giant decoration as It was holding down alot of gunk under it and made it a hassle to clean around !

Found rising levels of ammonia after my wc/rearrangement yesterday. Last night the test was faintly green. This morning - 0.5 ppm. So instead of going to Maine for a long, secluded weekend with my husband, I've been dealing with my tank.

I think I found the source of the problem. I used to have shrimp. I no longer have shrimp. But my filter had the remains of lots of shrimp. So I cleaned my filter (in tank water, I was just trying to get the solids out), cleaned out all my filter tubing, and did a 75% wc + sand vac. Everyone looks happy - we'll see what the tests say in an hour.

On the plus side, I found a baby snail that must have hitched a ride on some plants. I'm 99% that its a mystery snail, which makes me happy - a friend for Fred (my other mystery snail).

Stared and stared and stared some more....figuring out what shape my perfect piece of driftwood needs to be. I have several online sources saved for driftwood. But I would like to find my own.....and then stared some more

Had some time this morning before bolting out the door.

Changed the water AGAIN in my Bettas 2.5G bowl, and did it a couple days ago just a quick change, it looked a little cloudy, but after two days didn't get better, so I did another quick change and saw the problem, all the snail poo! I added a handful of Ramshorn snails in there when I was changing the tanks around before and there was sooo much poop . Redid it AGAIN and cleaned the substrate and got out the gunky poos!! Looks beautiful now like it should!!!

Found a dead Cardinal, it was looking a little pale the last couple of days while the rest looked gorgeous like they normally do. Hope it was a one only issue!

I really hate them! Even thinking of changing my substrate and giving the tank a good clean. They're driving me nuts
