Rearranged my rocks in my tank again. I do this at least every other day I swear, I just can't leave them alone. But I really like how it turned out this time, so maybe that means I will be able to leave them alone for more than two days. the fish seem to like the addition of the upper caves, too.

Did my pwc and cleaning on my main tankand completely cleaned out the QT tank.

Filter floss needed to be replaced on my QT box filter but I couldn't find where I put the floss!! So I improvised lol

I cut a AC50 sponge in half and stuffed in the filter. Worked like a charm!

Also my Pennywort needed to be anchored a bit. I leave it free floating so I used the suction cup from some small spare heaters I have. Just threaded it through and voíla!!

After using Prime a few times, I have finally figured out what is smells like...giving my dog a bath! Wet dogs do not always a good smell.

Did a PWC in my 20 g long planted tank. Added ten MTS the day before and they are going to town on the algae.

Seems like nothing but problems keep popping up .. i had another filter totally stop working although it was soo my fault just hate it was a new filter barely a month old :/ i bought a small thing of i think super naturals sand since i only needed one bag for the 5g betta tank that still isnt ready .. considering doing a thin layer of a natural looking gravel thats smooth

The more i research this low tech plant adventure the more i worry its a waste of my time and money but i am excited to try.. my goal is for a heavily planted 5g and 10g once i get it down and know i can do it then im gonna invest alittle more money and plant the 20g and 55g leaving only my african cichlids unplanted .. i just love all of yalls planted tanks they look so great and natural

I will be going to town tomorrow to grab stuff i may need / need to change for plants or shrimp .. anything that come to mind please shoot me a pm and let me know all the research can get confusing after so many different opinions and technics

Gotta get a filter and heater tomorrow for the betta tank totally spaced n left it out of my shopping cart the other day

For shrimp tank, you need cover /pre filter for the intake tubing so the babies don't get sucked up

Here is my low light /low tech tank after it was cleaned out of the masses of extra plants, Java moss and Salvinia Minima. I am working on deals right now for a big variety of new plants to go in it, all low-ish light. I think it is pretty good.

Not perfect by far. And the resin root stump has been my Red tail shark's place to hang out, but I moved the DW and now she is hanging there and I think the root thing is gonna get to go, it's kinda out of place!

Added dwarf gourami to my 20 gallon and realized he may have ich and I had nowhere else to put him :/ and I had to go to my sisters to watch her dog hoping he is alive . And I added a snail to fry tank.


Gourami also kept laying on bottom in 1 spot he moved before I left but everytime he saw me move he hid.
