Tuesday too many things came up so pwc tomorrow.

Moved my older young Rainbow Blue Platy to the tank with the younger ones.

Tried catching the moms and dads, but they knew to stay away from the big blue net, only got one. have 5 more to scare up!

So the downoi plant eater mystery is still a mystery.



The Downoi is the curly leaved ones on the center left rear. The very large one at 11-12 o clock is the first one which disappeared, then the rest except for the two ones lowest on the pic.

Fed and watched my OEBT shrimp for appx 40 min., the snails pretty much took over the food.

At first though the shrimp were grabbing whole pellets of Hikari Crab Cuisine for them selves, there were 4 pieces, the other shrimp started playing "steal the bacon", err pellet, from your friend. Very amusing!

Hehe, last night I watched my baby marbled crays play tug of war with hikari crab cuisine pellets, too. Even watched one grab a pellet AA big as she was and try to jet up into the water column with it. She struggled with it for a second and dropped it.

Anyone ever try to do a water change when the bathroom used for dumping and filling buckets has been taken over by kittens? It's not easy...

Wow i come back after months and this thread is still on the go, sweet.

Water changes today. Added a group of lemon tets to my 20gallon yesterday and the are colouring up nicely, if they were lemon tetra when i bought them then theyre now lime tetra. They have settled in wonderfully like theyve always been there and have decided to school with my pristella tetra.

Today was my weekly full maintenance day. Started it with a full round of water tests. Siphoned out 20% of water, cleaned sides inside with hand scrubber pad and outside with microfiber cloth, removed cleaned and repositioned heater, swished filter material, cleaned filter tubes. Refilled tank with fresh Prime treated water. Untangled plants. Trimmed some bacopa australis and replanted trimmings. Added Flourish Excel and Comprehensive. Replaced cover and light.

Gave fish freeze-dried blood worm treat. Watched fish eat treat. Cleaned out and stowed cleaning equip. Played with cloudy day settings on Current satellite LED+ light. Had an overall satisfying time with the tank.
