Got a new, larger, glass lid for our 8G JBJ AIO tank to keep our endlers in... these suckers jump!

Found 2-3 new endler fry... they guys are prolithic breeders. Future endler RAOK for sure.

Dropped ferts in all tanks, Flourish on weds and sundays.

Fed our CPO, he's a hungry bugger and has molted twice in less than a month!

Fed our betta, he eats 2x per day and jumps over dwarf watter lettuce floating to get to his food... crazy fish.

Fed shrimp carrot, they love it.

Reduced overall feeding schedule on all tanks, skipping every other day, let them learn to forrage like in the real world.

. You're talking about painting the back of your tank? As long as you paint the outside and not the inside I imagine you can use whatever paint you want. Just make sure the room is ventilated when you're painting. I used black spray paint on my tank. Why are you going to leave 2 inches unpainted? Unless it is a rimless tank I don't see why you can't paint the entire background.

All of my tanks that have backgrounds are painted with acrylic paint. It's fine, no need to avoid painting the top bit unpainted.

as long as you don't get the paint in the water it will be fine.

Looks darn good!

Thanks! I have to credit this one to my wife because it was her suggestion to use the old cabinet doors that were collecting dust in the garage. And the fit is near perfect (looks like they were made for the stand). Also used surplus hardware from another project (night stand). The hardest part was lining up the doors with new hinges.
