Pretty Sunset DG, Fishlover.

I checked P******T for different Bettas. My DD was upset I put an ailing fish into her tank, as it might die. Also she really didn't like its color, "it is kinda ugly and my fish was so much more beautiful" So I could tell she didn't want it to die and it just wasn't HER fish. So not too sure it will live, it didn't eat yesterday and again, not this morning I am planning on trying a (defrosted frozen) brine shrimp or two.

It didn't even look at the food when I put it in. It went from being on the bottom of the tank last night head first and a little bent to resting in the top of the tank this AM and PM, before work/ after work. Hoping he will start eating. The little heater doesn't seem to be able to warm up the tank quite enough, so will pick up another one that is a little bigger. Could have one in my pile of fish stuff. Need to check on tank size to watts requirements.

Added a couple Cryptocoryne Crispulata Balansae baby plants to my planted Jar and a handful to my 16G. Added water to two more tanks.

Fed some new fish food to my fish. They liked it pretty well, but it sank kind of fast so, I am not too sure I like it. -Well got if from the pretty knowledgeable guy at the P******T store. Because they didn't have the small container (so I could try it) in stock he gave me the 16.25 size for half price, it is OmegaOne Super Color Cichlid Pellets (small).

After reading the front SIDE of the container, it says they are sinking. (well Duh!) I read the back of the container for contents and I suppose it is fine.

Mostly got them for the Angelfish.

Unstuck some dead leaves from the filter in the Chi tank.

Checked on the Betta and defrosted some Brine shrimp gonna go feed them to the fish.

I made the mistake thinking my spotted would school with my two albino, but no.

Now he is by himself=( waiting on the next shipment.

I use those for my africans a few times a week.. they do go pretty much straight down...lol but they love them..

Hope your betta is ok atleast he is in good hands now


Think i already posted today that i added plants :/ ???? Since then i have fed my africans and crays .

The hubby wanted to add shrimp to his cray tank so we did a trial and error thing and so far so good.. the shrimp are out and about since we added them thursday and we have even had one drop babies.. the crays are actually scared of them and run from them.. we added hideouts only shrimp could fit and some moss then a few more fake plants for cover so far so good.. im feeding more then normal in hopes the crays dont get hungry and nip a shrimp.. keeping a head count for now and so far so good

Im sooooo excited... all these new babies coming out makes me feel like im doing something right... i got 7 cichlids holding, pretty sure my female cray is too as she is burrowed up and only moves if the male bugs her.. then i had shrimp drop a load ..my male bettas are both building nests.. i also now have 10 egg sacs in the 55g for ramshorns and a set of hatched ones in my cray tank

I guess i need a life it doesnt take much to excite me... gonna try and get in bed now...
