Yesterday I removed my dead Kribensis. She seemed fine all week then poof went to do pwc and low and behold it was doing the side stroke. Thinking of maybe adding another Roseline to the tank. Who knows? All I really know it the replacement is not happening now or in near future.

Changed out the play sand (yuck!) in my 75 gallon, replaced with eco-complete, redid the aquascape, fish are really happy with all the new hiding places.

Shifted one of the neons to my 5 gallon betta tank in prep to swap out my main tank for a 29 gallon tank. The plan was to give him a day to adjust and then move the other two. Then I would swap the tanks. But.... The betta got nasty quickly. So, he went into a bucket and all three neons got his tank. I cleaned out the 20 gallon. Rinsed 14 kgs of black sand for ages and ages. Soaked my filter in vinegar and water to try to fix it (no luck). Running my other filter with diluted bleach in a bucket. Also soaking my rocks and my heater in the bleach. I really don't want to risk bringing over any of the Cyanobacteria.

Waiting for the sand to settle so I can arrange my rocks and branches and such. I think the betta and neons will have to stay put for the night.

I also weeded my garden and planted lettuces, spinach, peas and spring onions while I rinsed the sand. And cooked a roast while I was doing the rest. Busy day!

Had a complete disaster! Added one ghost shrimp to each of the divided sections of my 26g Betta tank. Woke up to two eaten bettas, one male and two females missing chunks of fins! Spent all morning tearing the tank apart and catching the little devils. My one remaining male (from this tank) and my 5 girls are happy and back in their divided tank. The shrimp are in a bucket awaiting death via goldfish. {insert evil laugh here}

I always thought that betas were a threat to shrimp, not the other way around!
