With that much sand and a low filter intake, it might be a good idea to place a sponge prefilter over the filter intake to reduce the amount of sand that gets into the filter. It may cause premature wear to the impeller (ranging from noise to complete stoppage).

Yeah it was me. Not many people keep them and I don't know why. I plan on eventually keeping some coral red pencilfish:

But that's way down the road because they are very delicate and expensive.

To stay on topic, I turned the lights on and fed some frozen bloodworms. Everyone is happy and healthy.

I moved my three corys from the small tank where they've been quarantined, to my larger tank. I did not want to net them -- I lost on just after I bought them due, I think, to clumsy netting.

So I moved them with a bottle-trap. It worked like a charm. The trick is to bury the open side a little in the gravel. Then pop, pop, pop! Instant success

Nearly caught my snail too



The two corys I've already got - they must be about three years old now - seem SO happy to have companions. They came out of hiding immediately to greet the newcomers and everyone seems happy.

Next time I'll use a bottle that's not pinched in the middle (less chance of escape) and I'll put in less bait. One whole pellet was way too much.

Good job, it is wonderful when a plan comes together!

I filled all the tanks for evaporation and checked on all the inhabitants. It seems all is well. Fed and turned on the lights.
