Well I checked on my Blue Velvets and OEBT shrimp.
It seems I have at least 8 of the original 10 BV but one is a Red Rili, and two have a lot of red coloring and two have a tiny bit and at least 3 are perfect, blue no red...The others could just be in the moss, it is a mass of moss and plants in there making it difficult to see the shrimp except at feeding time.
Found the Assassin snail was out at the feeding trough. as were the snails, can't tell if A snail was eating a food chunk or a snail.
My beautiful blue OEBT came out, I didn't see the light blue one with the orange tail today YET. I think I will be taking the OEBTs out and put in with the Fire Red Cherry shrimp, I have a few days to decide.
Still trying to whittle down the number of tanks which will need feeding while I am away.
I am having a difficult time deciding on the fish shuffle!
Redistributing them now that I am adding the pair of Koi Angelfish to the 37G so they can have their eggs in peace. Think I will hang a plastic needle point craft panel in the tank to offer some protection for the babies if any make it and so I can add a cloud of Moss over there for extra food as well and keep it from floating onto the intake sponge (prefilter type thing).
Moving the remainder of the fish to the two other tanks.
Going to do a 50% pwc
on the 72G and start thinking about a FX-5 canister filter cleanout
Fish are fun, fish are fun, fish are a lot of work, fish can make you crazy, fish are fun, fish are fun!!!
I just hope they will be alive when I get back from my trip.
I need to start getting all my light timers gathered up so I can make sure they work right...
