I removed a dead harlequin rasbora today It had ich, so I started treatment on my 15g column, took out the carbonated filter and put in one w/out carbon... I was hoping to save the fish and the bacteria in the carbonated filter, but it took a few days, so no more bacteria I have a penguin 150 so I still have the bio wheel and some ceramic media I added, but now my tank is in a mini-cycle I have to talk my family into a larger tank... My other fish seem to be doing okay so far (2 abino cories, 4 harlequin rasboras and a crowntail betta).

Played detective with my 46g. I wasn't liking the behavior of my 2 CAE's, they weren't hiding or running as usual. My 1st clue something was wrong was big boy laying on the plants near the top, highly unusual. Upon closer inspection he had very rapid gill movement, much more rapid than normal. I immediately tested the water 0 ammonia/nitrites, barely registering nitrates (lots of plants), hmmmm. Oh, could it be the meds I added a few days ago for my female Bettas? Of course it could. So I did an 80% water change a little bit ago & they are now both acting more themselves!! YAY, I love my CAE's. I think its time for their cucumber dinner.

Oh I also did my weekly water changes on 3 10g, a 5.5g, a 5g, a QT 2.5g housing a female Betta & set up another small QT tank to which I moved a VERY VERY bloated female Betta into. Phew, that's a lot . . . well it looks like a lot, I know its not as much as some fish keepers. Now get those CAE's their cucumber.

I'm back from Alaska and everything seems to be in order and ALIVE! Frazzled but alive. Did a 50% pwc on both tanks and will do another tomorrow.

On leave for a week so had my 3yo daughter "help" with a pwc.

Cleaned my internal filter and slowed the flow rate which seems to have satisfied the Angelfish. Bit worried that I don't have enough flow now because I don't really have good water agitation like I did before

Want to go and get some more plants but so pricey

was just doing a water change on my 29 gallon, which has 4 convicts in it. I see over in the corner there's alot of movement, i thought they stirred up some fish poop or something. Nope. My convicts have spawned, I got convict fry!!!!! this was a huge surprise!!! this explains why two of them had been hiding under the power filter. and now that i'm paying attention, mom is not having anybody in that corner

how in the world did i miss this?

My name is Deb and I have MTS

I have some convict eggs that I missed so don't feel bad
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.

Water changes... Water changes... Cleaned all filters, replaced purigen and chemi pure elite.

Fed my betta fry freshly hatched brine shrimp and they went nuts! They loved it! So I started another hatch for them. Going to alternate the brine and the microworms til they are ready for crushed pellets.
