Bought a new tank and rescued the other tank the lady had.
First got a near new Fluval Chi 5G, CaribSea SuperNaturals Black, I believe Tahitian Moon sand and a bag of foods and water treatment stuff for $20.
Then was asked to take the other tank too for free...
So they were all in the tank, a 2G Aqueon Evolve LED
with one Anubias Nana plant and a bunch of Algae on it. The people had changed the water and cleaned the tank.
The frog with one missing eye and a bite on his head, a Cherry barb male, three Neons and three red line tetras, didn't notice any sucker fish so it must have died, and a full grown Crowntail Betta Black and cobalt blue, very pretty, AND one Harlequin Rasbora. So that is 10 living things in there.
When I got home, I moved the Cherry Barb to the snail jar, hoping there are enough plants so all the shrimp aren't eaten. I don't have Cherry barbs so maybe re-homing it soon. He was biting at the frog when I was there picking them up, and chasing the other fish around. There was no where for the little frog to hide.
Frog looks poorly. Hope he makes it.
Betta went into a big snail bowl, 2G with the frog for the time being and a big cloud of Java Moss for the frog to hide in. Cleaned it too before I put them in, snails are sooo poopy!
The Tetras are back in the Evolve tank with a bunch of random plants and moss thrown in for the moment, and the Neons have their color back already, still seem scared. Cleaned the gravel with treated water as well. it smelled like yuck.
Added water to three tanks from Evaporation.
Now going to make sure I understand how this Chi tank works before I set it up. Very excited and happy to get it, been wanting one for a year and a half at least. Have a 3x4" piece of filter pad to get the cycle going on it! I can't make up my mind for a shrimp tank with DW/Spiderwood sticking out of it or keep as a Betta tank. I also have the Fluval Bamboo wall deco from the Edge tank and may use it for some plants and go Zen. I always feel like decorations premade like that are a bit contrived, and not that much to my taste.
But in the same breath, there is a Sponge Bob Pineapple house that came with it, and I think it is very funny, just not funny in my Chi tank.
So overall awesome tank day for $20.
I didn't want another Betta, though he is very pretty. I will hope to find a new home for him.
If the Tetras do well, after QT I will add them into the big tank with the others, and the dozen Cardinals. The Harlequin Rasbora will have 5 other friends as well, so everyone will be happy.
