Well last night I found my 7 year old (almost 8) big blue 6" Gourami had passed. She had what looked like a big tumor, and it had been getting bigger, so I think it was just her time to go.

Today I found a 1+" Mystery snail dead/ shell empty in my 6.6G Edge Fire Red Cherry Shrimp tank, so I am thinking there must have been a spike while I was on vacation. Also thinking no more Mystery snails in there. It was a little baby originally and I was about to move it anyway to a bigger tank.

I was going to move a bunch of fish from my 37G to my 72G tomorrow but got called into work instead.

Watched and fed some of the fish.

My 2 newer Siamese Algae Eaters are fun to see chasing each other all around the tank, and kinda "dancing" with each other. Wondering if they are up to something?!?

In the 37G, one Rainbow Blue Platy had about 5 babies. There aren't any big fish to eat them (only Cardinals which could possibly eat them but haven't noticed any issues). Momma was a good fish net evader when I was trying to move her and the rest of her family to the other tank, and she was a good hider and ended up staying in there, so now more babies.

Betta is looking stronger and almost normal. Very happy about that.

Overall today is a better day in fish land.

Sorry to hear about your gourami I've just lost my betta too tumours only had him for 2 months.
Good to hear your betta is improving hope he gets better for you.

Neon juvies were acting funny in the 4gal, tested the water and all was good but then pH read off the charts! Dont know how this tank keeps rising but its a right pain. Did a 50% WC and added some pH down to the new water.

Cleaned some leaves off the surface in my DT, cories are out and playing tonight, glad the 2 new guys i added last week have settled in

Please allow me to introduce the star of the show,

Diddy P.
I got a new puffer, Tetraodon Biocellatus, he is acclimating.
Moved tetra shoal to 120. New cryptocoryne plants for 120 which I will be planting.
Got loads of consumables for the "shed"

Water changes to do, well more like top ups to both 750 and 120.
Don't forget the feeding!


This is him still bagged up,

I tried pH down, the next day, back again, I still have most of it left. JBL stuff.
In the end I went RO.
Glass of tap water left for 24 hours test it for gh/kh if the buffers (kh) are high you are fighting a losing battle.
