Hey guys, think this catfish might be a bit too big for my tank?

When I saw the posting on my email notification, I thought, Alyxx knows better than to put a too big cat fish in the tank.....

roflm*o

TOOO funny. So that is the "new" tank?

I was supposed to pick up one of those only maybe half that tall, and the CL-er never called me back again...been a day so probably sold it to someone else.

I also was laughing hard at the shrimp in my 6.6Edge tank.

The filter was off when I got home from work last night, so I wiggled it around and it started again, but I didn't feed them, not in the am either figured it would give the filter a chance to catch up cleaning the water. So tonight I I fed the shrimp, snails and micro fish, Sundanios and Chilis.

They acted like I had never fed them before.

A few of the snails, baby blue Mystery, and a couple of Ramshorns, went warp speed to the top and started sucking tiny particles off the surface of the water and also the edges where the surface of the water touches the sides, and the shrimp were snagging the tiny First Bites out of the mouths of the snails and cleaning food particles off of them, tickling them, and the snails were still trying to eat while being tickled by Fire Red Cherry youngsters and adults, making little twinges from the tickling.

VERY hilarious. If I had had one of those fancy new phones, I would have done a video for you, but instead, you will just have to use your imaginations!

Angelfish or something else ate all the eggs that were in the crack in the corner of the tank. Mom and dad AF keep hanging out there, maybe looking for the eggs to fan....or eat.

Maybe with the slate, when I find it, I can save some next time. Need to do much more reading up on the process and see if I can get that done soon!

Also finally figured out how to turn the light off on my Chi tank!!! My Betta will be so happy to get a decent nights sleep!

Yeah, that's the hex tank the bf found for me. Just a 20 hex. I now have 4 empty 20 gallons! Can't wait to get them all running. One of the kitties was being a pain so I stuck her in there for a timeout. I've got them trained that the fish are nothing they want to mess with already - wet paws are a good motivator, and being in an empty tank doesn't hurt either! Hehee, my crays act as if they have never been fed before every time I feed them. It's hilarious!

Somehow I think that even violates the outdated inch per gallon rule

No, you could easily fit 6-13 more in there.

Speaking of acting like I've never been fed, I have one from last night. I fed a chunk of blood worms to the 29, I broke it in half and stuck both to the glass. My male Bolivian ram never pays attention to them but he grabbed a whole chunk and swam around with it. I thought he was choking , he went up and down and when it fell out he dove after it. He ate the entire chunk.
