I'm so sorry about your otos.

Tried to find and save fry in my guppy tank.

Apparently the breeding I used was too big and the babies slipped through the holes.
I only found one left by the time I got home this afternoon I could only fin 1.

Luckily the female still looks like she's got a few in her so hopefully I can save them. Put her into an actual small tank rather than a net this time.

The female is the last one left in my red lace snakeskin strain from Pete Mang so I'm going to be very disappointed if these don't make it. Of course she'll have more, but not soon enough, she was huge this time!

Hope you find some more and feed the momma so she won't want to eat them!

I finally hit the $1/ gallon sale! Picked up a 40 breeder, a 20 long, and a doubletail half-moon betta, all for... $91! Less than the regular cost of the 40. My neighbor went with me since she has a van so we could actually haul tanks home, and she gave me a spare 10 gallon tank since she replaced one of hers with a 20. So all in all, good day! Three new tanks and a pretty fish. Gonna relax for a while then clean up the 10 gallon since it's kinda gross from sitting empty for a while, then it's time to start cleaning my spare room out to make way for the tanks. Hopefully I can get to lowe's sometime soon for stand materials. And then I'll be placing a nice big order of supplies from fosters and smith.

I now have:
Running -
3x 10 gallon
30 gallon long
5 gallon
56 gallon cube
1.5 gallon

Empty-
10 gallon
40 gallon
20 long
20 high

Plus a hex tank of unknown gallonage that I haven't picked up yet.

For a grand total of 12 tanks and 212+ gallons. Yeah, I think I have a mild case of MTS.

Bought some tiny julli Cory cats a few weeks ago and really noticed how big they've grown.
