He might be sick. I work in an hour and wont be able to monitor him. And my lfs owner is on the mainland right now =(

The angel was previously in the 10g with 3 other angels. They grew and need less to say, only the strong survive.

I got them for free.

So, I think my Marineland Penguin 100 died on me while I was at school today. Water is still going through it but the Biowheel isn't moving and the water level is sufficiently high. Are my fears correct?

If so, how soon do I need to replace it? I have an air stone in the tank so it's aerated. And should I replace it with another Penguin 100, or do you have another suggestion?

And to keep the thread on track, I fed my fish and dosed the tank today with liquid ferts.

I would get a filter twice the filtration size of your tank. I want to put my penguin 100 on my 10g and get a bigger one for my 20g.

Try post a thread in the equipment category to get further advice=)

Found a really pretty Doubletail Betta BUT he was kinda sick, took him home anyway and will have to see how he does. Here's the pic


Got several additional plants for my tank.
Got Cryptocoryne Crispulata Balansae one pack was free there were 3 plants and 5 shoots total, in the other package were 7-8 shoots. Half price 4. My previous discount plants are growing well.

Cryptocoryne wendtii ' Tropica 3 young plants about 10-12 leaves ea for half price 4. and
A potted Melon Sword
A potted Ocelot Sword

The tropica, Melon and Ocelot Swords are new plants for me.

Planted a package of Downoi from last week and a package of Balansae and the Tropica today, the Melon and Ocelot Swords too.

Did Pwc on 5G new Bettas tank,

pwc 12G Edge, Sad to have found a knick in the glass where I dropped a rock a couple weeks ago, so a little unsure about the longevity of the thing. Didn't see it at the time it happened, so don't know if it was cause I was blind, there was algae on the tank, or it is getting worse... Really unsettled about it.

Added water to 37G / Planted Jar / 16G & 6.6G Edge.

Tried to add a Fern to the top of the Chi tank but there really wasn't enough root space for it / roots were too big so I moved an interesting rock on top of it.

Ordering bunch of things online for my fish today including a lid for the Chi tank. Plastic wrap isn't very attractive.

a 80% change on the African Dwarf Frog bowl and added a hopefully female friend for him so he would have company.

Checked the Betta after 2 hours and he is at least up right even if he still looks a little unwell.

The store had a gorgeous Elephant ear, similar color but a little buttery yellow in the middle, kinda like a light Mustard Gas. The whitish swoosh on his side is his elephant ear

I can't find him anywhere! I guess I'll be taking everything out tomorrow if I don't see him in the morning.

If you have any ornaments/decos with holes inside them look VERY closely.
