Molliwopp, how many lemons did you get? I have seven X-ray pristellas that I got 1.5 weeks ago. Both are really beautiful tetras.

Today I redosed ammonia in my SW (yay!), vacuumed my substrates in all the tanks, messed with the scaping of my LR and did a PWC on my 3g and 2g

Made my Saturday yard sale sweep around town and scored big time. 29g, stand, couple new boxes of filter inserts and odds and ends all for $10! Other than having calcium buildup, the tank looks brand new, the seals are perfect. No hood, light,heater or filter but the price was right.

Found an apple snail dead stuck in my filter intake, my loaches ate well today. It was crazy his entire body was out of the shell. So did a pwc to make sure no spike in ammonia. This is the 3rd I've lost like this any ideas how to avoid this?

Sorry to hear this. But the silver lining is that it didn't go to waste. If it was just the 1 snail, then it could've been sick. But loosing 3 the same way is strange.

Exactly they are happy and full. It's just funny they are fine for months I usually only have one at a time then one morning I find them attached to the filter covered in algae

I have 6 pristella and 6 lemon.

2 of my cardinal tetra developed neon tetra disease over a period of afew days, i got them with my lemons so only had them afew days... alittle scary for my other fish and had no choice but to put 2 of the cardinals to sleep.

Fed everybody and did a big water change on my betta fry tank.

Also, was browsing craigslist and found a 100gal meta frame for $350. With some extras. I'm dying inside. I would snap it up in a heartbeat if I had a place to put it, and wasn't already worried about finding a new place to live that will let me keep the tanks I already have. I wonder if my mom would let me store it in her house til I can set it up... It's not like there's anything in my old room right now...

I'm so sorry for your loss. Yes, sometimes the sad but better option is to cull to save the other fish. In the meantime enjoy your lemons and pristellas.
