Lol I wish I lived in Hawaii.

Today I did nothing. Lol. Basketball tryouts are coming up for school, so I'm focusing on that. Fish are for the weekends

Hi, I am baaaaack!

Vacation was nice.

Changed over my moms tank when I visited her, got her ugly pink blue and green bright gravel to a Eco-Complete with Petrified Wood stone and Malaysian DW, Java Moss, Bolbitis fern, other plants and 2 Dwarf African Frogs. It looks very pretty now. Her 3 fish died, I think because of the pH change, even though I tried to gradually acclimate them.

When I got home I did immediate pwc on almost all the tanks.

My Betta is doing so much better, all healed up (blind in one eye) but has a white spot left on his head, I am watching it to see what it could be, scar or nasty parasite or ??? He is in a Chi tank and the blue mystery snail crawled out, found him dried and dead. The tiny baby Albino BN Plecos are good. Did two 75% pwc and cleaned the filter.

Koi Angels spawned day before and the eggs are gone today. Going to get them into the other tank this week so they can try to get some privacy for the next one.

Was a little bumpy after coming back, but they are looking good now.

Hoping to finally get my Tangerine Tiger Shrimp next week. Will find out in the next day or two.

Added a black background to a 20G that allows me to see the plants a lot better than against the wall. I plan to make a DIY HOB filter which will hide behind it. Dug up some clay from the yard to mix with my potting mix for a second 20G. Checked out a number of nice DIY ideas that i can use with my tanks. 30% water change on a tank i have on a fish in cycle.

I also noticed that my big Comet had some white lumps on his head and front fins which had me worried. I found out that it's all good though. He's just reached maturity. I need to find him a bigger home soon.

The local chinese shop has a small pond and they would take him, but they overstock that pond and usually go through fish very quickly. Another option is to release him into a large local pond that already has a load of Comets and Koi. He would become anonymous in there very quickly though and he's a really friendly fish now so i'm reluctant to let him go there too. It is probably the best option though.
