Today I did a 30%WC, ended up using too much water conditioner, (got some better advice on it) and am now caring for a guppy who's a bit off, (posted elsewhere).

Did a bunch of research and window shopping for materials in preparation of having an axolotl.

Checked parameters in DT. Did weekly PWC. Trimmed and replanted ludwigia. Gave fish weekly frozen bloodworm treat. All look heathy.

Lost another rummy nose in QT. Just two left. Still treating for ich. Fewer spots today. Temp 86.5 F. Doing all I can. Tomorrow it will be a week since I bought them. Sad to watch them die but are least the QT kept my other fish safe.

Found my daughters Betta is not looking good in the tank. He had a little bad water on the other tank but now is looking ill and breathing fast and laying at the bottom of the tank. I added Prime and gave him a little frozen brine shrimp and he didn't even move for it.

He is a few years old... My daughter's really sad. He was a rescue.

Gave brine shrimp the the other guys, and some to the Fire Red shrimp, they grabbed them right away!

WC's in the two tanks. Trimmed some rotala indica and wisteria. If anybody wants the wisteria pm me. I don't ship. (Please don't get mad for saying that)

Anyways back to the tanks. I might get rid of my Golden wonder killies and get some harlequin rasboras and endlers today.

Re-scaped our 6G Cyl Tank, will post pics on this thread later...

Found this while cleaning off and replanting plants... damselfly nymph, perhaps?


Here is a link I used to ID this critter... not sure where it came from...

Here is more about the genus Calopteryx

Purchased some driftwood and lava rocks for my tank, as well as Flourish Comprehensive and CO2 Booster... Also bought a pre-filter sponge as I experienced a few filter intake debacles in the past and the intake was far too strong for the inhabitants.

UPDATE: Added everything to the tank and it looks fantastic! Very pleased with the outcome.
