Trimmed some more plants and starting to figure out how I'm going to move my 'big' 29 gallon in a month or 2. It's been planted for over a year and everything is very much established. I have an idea: remove all fish and drain water to about an inch or so, leaving all plants rooted in the sand. Only moving 2 minutes away so it shouldn't be too shocking to them.

Went to the LFS looking for some hard scape. They have lots of DW but I was looking for stones. Did not see anything I liked so I went to Lowes and picked up a bag of River Rock. The rocks in the bag varied in size from pea gravel to larger than walnut size. They were quite dusty at first; a quick rinse displayed some nice colors:

Here is another shot; there is a quarter in the pic for size reference:


Question: Aside from thorough scrubbing and washing with hot water, should I do the vinegar test on these?
I might let them soak in tap water and see if there is a change in pH overnight.

Cool
You'll need a brackish setup for those ghost shrimp hatchlings, AFAIK

Im tired... i started cleaning the 125g at 1030p i took apart and cleaned a filter changed the pads n it too.. removed all rocks and slate after draining 40% of the water.. fought fish over every move an almost squashed some very nosey ones that kept brushing against me while i was arranging rocks... not a good idea on their part :/ thought they were the catfish ... was hoping a change of scenery would calm the tempers in my tank so far nope.. got several holding females that are first timers and they are liking the new hidey holes ... ..moved a filter down and put the powerhead in the middle... im just exhausted... made another batch of food .. Finally got holes drilled in my dw ... oh sprayed the kitchen down with water before i realized i had the water changer on the wrong setting.. what a night......

Got the rescue Betta delivered to a excited happy recipient!!!

Was going to put the rescue African Dwarf Frog in too, they have been tank mates. No problems, Betta was in a community tank before.

The ADF was injured by a Cherry Barb who I am guessing bit out his eye in the days just before I picked him up. The Cherry barb was biting him when I actually picked him up from the people and bit his head. The injury on his head seems to be healing but I decided to keep him and treat him with an antibiotic just to make sure he is healthy for the adoptor.

Changed the water in his tank so he would be in clean water for the treatment tomorrow.
