Was gifted two air pumps, so I added air stones to my three small tanks and my 30g yesterday. Today I was able to find for free everything I needed to make an aquarium background. Yay! ( gotta love craft crazy people who overstock on things). So I started that project today. I will post pics when it's done. Pwc on all tanks, and I redesigned my 30g to accommodate the background I am making.

Treating for Camallanus worms.....ugh! Tomorrow though converting the tank to a full planted tank with Eco-Complete fine grade sand. Got some real nice pieces of driftwood and a plant package from another member here. Very excited!

Sounds good, I am doing similar this weekend with our 6G Cyl Tank, rescaping with EC and adding dw.

If possible boil your driftwood, or at least pre-soak it so it doesn't float.

I boil first, then soak in buckets to get the wood to leach out as much color as possible... unless you like tea colored water

Good luck!

Thanks! Good luck too! Mines a bit bigger, 46 gallon bow front. I've boiled my driftwood twice now for about 2 hours at a time and have had it soaking in buckets when it's not boiling so I should be good. If tannins leak I'll just either deal with it or throw some carbon in my filter, either way I can't wait!

Realized I have fry from my Rainbow Blue Platy, a hand ful, fed them First bites and some FD Hikari Tubiflex to all the fish.

The adopted rescue African Dwarf Frog ADF surprised our house guest in the middle of the night with a croaking mating call.

Yesterday he says to me, the fish lady...asking if I know I have a frog in with that Betta fish? HAHAHAHA No?! really! I told him I knew it was in there but hadn't ever heard it croaking. So I guess it is a male and I should look for a female friend for him, lol, since he asked so nicely.

Guest said he heard a frog and started looking all around, thinking one had hopped into the house (on the upstairs floor) finally localizing the sound the the sound to the planted 2.5G bowl.

The Betta will probably get to go to his new adopted home on Sunday. For my college friend from work. Then the frog(s) will have the bowl to themselves. Maybe baby frogs!!!

The gross gel slime on my driftwood in the 12G Edge is seeming to be slowly eaten by two big Mystery snails.

My new Fire Red shrimp are doing great I am guessing there were about 30, the tank is teaming with them now and it looks great. Here is a pic of one of them, they are a little more red than in the pic, my phone camera doesn't do so well with pics.


My Dark Blue Velvets are still pretty light, I put them into my OEBT tank and they seem to be getting along just fine.

I will probably remove all but 2 of the Ramshorn snails and the ones that are too small lol, because the RH are eating most of the food and blob over the top of it making it difficult for the shrimp to get at. Although they will grab a pellet and go up into the Java Moss forest and eat it, so cute

Day before moved my DD's Betta into the new 5G Marineland tank, couldn't get the filter to suck. Yesterday banged it around and must have got the impeller unstuck, it is all built in so I couldn't just take it apart and clean it as far as I can tell the impeller is a sealed unit. I will need to check on that, it is a used tank, no instructions.

It has a plant light so The Java Fern Java Moss and Dwarf Vals will be sooo happy to have light again. Added a big chunk of Mopani DW which looks kinda cool. Her fish is seeming sluggish and is laying around a lot. I am gonna feed him some frozen brine shrimp and throw a snail in for clean up I think.

My avatar Betta is beginning to get used to his 5G Chi tank and the weird water flow at the top of the tank, and getting more active swimming around too.

Added water to the 37G.

Wow - That was more than I thought!

Busy you!

I am interested in OEBT offspring, if you get any... especially if they cross with Blue Velvets (is that even possible?)

Also, what's the deal with the RH slime? I have a jar covered with it... I though those were eggs possibly
