Sorry to hear about the puppy. My dog had a cyst his his eye a few years back and for the cost of a small dream tank it was successfully removed.

PWC and rinsed out the media in one of the filters. Pulled out some broadleaf chain sword to make room for some Alternanthera reineckii 'cardinalis' that I picked up from PetSmart in one of those Topfin gel packs. They are very small (which is something the gel pack plants seem to have in common). Once they acclimate and start growing they should attain full size. Finger crossed on this.
Top view of new plants:
Plants that were removed:
Ongoing battle with the MTS; I use toothpicks to hold down some new plantings and the MTS have ideas of their own:

Nice find. Just rinse it out frequently and that will help remove waste before it gets a chance to breakdown.

I know. I will rinse it every 2-3 days as it will be a pre filter and does not need to grow bb

Did 25% wc on dirted snail poo was everywhere! Thinking of rearranging plans for new plants that are coming in the mail=) Guppys had more fry counted 3 new ones, such young mamas. Fed all fish, and looked into grindals? the microworm cousin? Thinking of getting a live culture going for the fish friends.

That cup setup seems like it could be stressful... just saying.

That is a great idea! I am always experimenting with different ways to keep plants in place until they root.

Added some driftwood to my 55gallon, replanted my water wisteria that will not lay down roots! Gave the mollies and snails an algae wafer, and stared...
