Woke up this morning, turned my lights on, and going one of my electric blue ahli's dead. No sign of sickness, no sign of a scuffle, just dead in my plant. I'm really bummed, but relieved it wasn't my frontosa or my five bar. I'll be doing another water change today in that tank now. All of my parameters are where they usually are, too, so I am stumped over the death. In the past month I have lost both of my clown loaches and now the electric blue. Really hope I don't keep going with this trend! >=(

I have 6 julie corys. They root around my bottom plants but seem to do so pretty gently. The only plants of mine they have uprooedt are ones that I didn't get planted in the gravel well enough. The benefit is that they will stir up the stuff that gets in your carpet so that it gets in the water again for the filters to pick up. I LOVE my corys! OS.

Great! Thanks! I was worried. I think if someone made me choose, cories might be my favorite freshwater fish. I have 4 albino cories right now. I'm wanting to maybe move up to a larger tank sometime so I can have a few more. I want peppered, bronze, and juliis. They always have so much personality!

Oh NO! I am so sorry! That is an awful thing to have happen.

I finished sorting and packed a few orders, didn't have the time for all of them before the mail. Found my Kordon bags from being misplaced after moving.

Started to make some more decisions for which fish need to be rehomed, or changed in to different tanks.

I just want to say, there are so many kind and very nice people here on AA.

Thanks to all of you who help and encourage and problem solve for so many.

Divided up the snails I got from clearancepuppy between most of my tanks, and now I have frozen food defrosting for everyone. A crab leg for the puffers, cucumber for the plebe, and brine shrimp and bloodworms for everyone else. I set up a brine shrimp hatchery today, too. My betta fry will be getting nice fresh baby brine shrimp soon!

I did a 50% pwc in my daughters 20 gallon. Then a 30% pwc in my 70 gallon, trimmed the plants cleaned the filter, and did some aquascaping. I also set a snail trap to try and control the mts and pond snails. (I removed about 30-40 by hand during the clean)
