It was actually yesterday, but I added a bag of activated carbon to my filter to remove tannins from my water (I added my dw a little too early). After just one day my water is crystal clear again.

Did a 50 % clean on my bettas tank and filters rinsed. My new betta has settled in really well and he's eating good. Tried to get a pic of him, but he just won't sit still long enough!

He is having too much fun and excitement in his new spacious home!!!

Yesterday I traded a newish iron 46G bowfront stand, for a Python water changer (I needed more tubing), a mid size eheim hob filter with nothing in it no pads or media, and a hand full of connectors for the faucets and canisters, and quik connects parts, and $20. I was only asking 45 so I felt I got a good deal! Guy drove almost an hour one way to come get it!

Then found out a friend whose Betta was old, died, so I have the one I just rescued and she really was excited about a new one, she said she liked her old one and was going to miss her friend. So VERY happy he will be going to a place where he will be loved!

Doing a pwc on my snail jar and on the new rescued Bettas home with the frog since the frog had some bites on him and want to keep the water very clean. The bites are already better and don't seem to be a problem.

Made a deal to get some new Fire Red shrimp stock and some more Christmas Moss.

Will find out today if I will be getting new Fire Yellow Shrimp. Possibly some Dark Blue Velvet shrimp too! Kinda a pain since they can't go together, but either one, one type will go into the OEBT tank! Either blue and yellow shrimp or blue and blue shrimp!
