Yes, I keep gold occellatus, xenotilapia ochrogenys ndole bay, enantiopius melanogenys, callochromis stappersii raspberry head, and cyprichromis microlepidotus caramba.

Ah I see. I used to absolutely love gold occellatus. I had a pair in my 10 gallon before I converted it to saltwater. They were tiny in my tank, and now they're big (bigger at least lol) in my friends tanganyika tank.

Anyways back on topic. I dosed my tanks with seachem flourish today. Things are starting to grow in much much much better. My planted jar is almost finished with its cycle, and about ready for MTS. Also 20% PWC on my 20 gallon freshwater tank.

Your snail collage is epic. I love apple snails but don't have one. My 10g dirted is full of just snails. But a decent amount, not an annoying amount Some of my pouch snails like swimming to the surface then back down to the plants. Almost like they are flying. I love watching the snails, I took an algae wafer and dropped it in, within seconds you see the nearest snails flock over. Lol should have took a pic of the "snail pile"

Today my ghost shrimp was chillen' on my Japanese cress I have floating in my 20g, made me worried for a bit.

Thank you and I decided I will buy two female platy after I pick up my dad and then after everyone's qaurentine is over I will be done stocking my tanks . Plus I a giving my guppy fry to my dad . The fry will be at least 4 weeks old once I'm done with qaurentining my new fish and when I done with qaurentine male and female guppys will be seperated as well as the platy male from my soon to be females lol ... I am going to return one zebra danio and exchange it... It has one eye... Don't really want a one eyed fish

Today (well last night) I cleaned out the canister filter and fish tank. The filter took 3 goes before I got it primed properly and working. Was just starting to curse it when it decided to work Much better flow rates now but I've got my eye on a bigger filter... Still have snails in filter I note but none in tank. I assume my loaches are getting any that make it through to tank.

Re-sank some plants (spend more time fooling around with plants then anything else) and checked the timers. Took 120 litres out of tank and to garden, then filled tank back up again (I tell myself it is good exercise). Spent 5 mins with daughter trying to work out if there is a new baby molly. Then onto watching the world of fish go by
