Just fed the tanks.. found a dead looked to be adult female shrimp from my new batch today

Ordered some yellow neo shrimp for a different tank and some purple dark foot mystery snails .. fixing to order some food and mineral rock also.. should have several packages coming in next week... and for once the ole ball and chain is as excited as me ... (bought him some video games and laid a cash deposit down for one coming out )

This week was the best stay at home vacation i have ever had...

I finally put my newly extended water changer to the test and cleaned all of the tanks in my fish room without having to haul buckets! It's wonderful although I have to have my boyfriend help with the filling part since I broke the lever on the end that lets me shut off the water at the hose end, and its pretty far to run from the back room to the sink without risking an overflow. So I just yelled to him to shut off and start the water at the tap.

My fish room is right next to the hall bathroom but that is where we keep the kittens when we can't supervise them and at least when I'm here alone it makes it hard for me to change water with buckets. Can't keep an eye on 4 rambunctious kittens, keep them out of the fish room, and change water at the same time! So I've added 40 feet of hose to my water changer!

I pm'ed you.

Maybe you can do some crushed coral for the substrate. Keep a bucket of water with a little pump to circulate through the coral bag and keep a ready supply of harder water for your snails. Snails are way cool.

Maybe some SW keeper could get you a few scoops. Post and see if someone nearby can help you out.

As for the cuttlebone, you can use one of those every 6 months maybe...not too expensive.
