Yea... lol i told my husband what you said mommachef n he just died laughing ..

Autumnsky yea you can say that again


Lost the last of my shrimp really sucks money wasted and those poor little things Flash is happy he got his whole home back and is outta the breeder net not that he cared as he had tons of bubble nests even in it prolly thrilled over the live buffet he had still..

Did a major cleaning on the big tank a couple days ago n noticed today tons of poop still in the back of the tank looks like i need to get my powerhead back out

Almost out of ramshorns as my crawfish apparently like them more then the mystery snail i keep finding crushed shells everywhere i went from 18 snails to 4 in less then a month

Water change on both tanks and scrubbed the glass on mr bettas tank. Clogged my siphon with sand(don't ask how, it was a mess). Disassembled it, washed out,reassembled and it's currently drying in the shower. During this, wet,smelly sand/poo went everywhere. My uncle has a 55 that he said that I can have and im working a plan to convince my mom to let me have it. My current tanks,10 & 29 are in my room. The room across from mine is empty and that's where I'd like the 55 to go. But I'm not too sure that my mom wants the start of another 'fish room'. But if she says yes, then I will buy her some nice angel fish

Fed everybody last night and my new earth eater nearly jumped out of the tank going after the floating pellets! Also, just talked to my uncle who's giving my his old tank. It's at least 55 gallons. May be picking it up tomorrow or within the week. Also will be getting the old equipment that he has. He doesn't know if any of it still works or what he still has but what the heck, might find a dusty gem. Can't wait to start a new build and yes I'll start a build thread.

Went to my LFS today to get some ghost shrimp they had an offer 10 for $1 to my surprise when I got them home and actually counted them I had gotten 21 ghost shrimp a lot were very small they had just gotten them in 4 are pregnant.. Since they are in my fry tank I'm guessing all of the babies they do come out of these pregnant mamas will be eaten up almost immediately which is going to be good for them since they have not yet had anything besides the flake and or powdered food

Do you mind me asking what you paid for your canister filter? I have a new build coming up, at least a 55g. And ill be getting a canister. Never had one before.
