I'm so happy!

To top it all off I finally got clearance to start work so I need not worry about money, the best day ever! I also made pals with my new local fish store, not so local, I drive past three, but the guy is clever. They took my gibbiceps from me, they remembered and did me a real good deal on a big bag of stuff! Lovely jubbly!

Edit- well done on the light rig! Hope George is feeling better, if he disappears, I stole him!

Did siphon and 50%wc , and added 1 fruit tums (for snails ) for my 20g and 29g.
Did full WC on all 7 of my Betta
Went to check and do WC for roomates Betta since she's on a mission trip .... Found her female Betta dead I feel bad for when she gets home . Last time I checked it looked perfectly fine and was such a lovely color ... House temp is 70F. I got some Shells from dollar store . so to be safe they are soaking In water for a few days with xtra prime to clean and make sure they are safe before they go in my tanks

Good to hear your betta is improving hope he gets better for you.
Oh, that Betta was so beautiful.

That is terrible news. I am more sorry for you, since you only had him a couple months.

Things here are fairly calm right now with the tanks. Might have enough time tomorrow to move the other fish.

Just had a little chat with the old lady a couple of doors down who keeps a couple of fancy Goldfish in a very small tank. They look unhealthy so i am thinking about loaning her a 20G i am not using if she wants it. I gave her some Ludwigia and a bit of Cabomba to put in her tank and while talking to her afterwards i got a call from the pet shop. My Pygmy Chain Sword had supposedly come in. Mad rush to the pet store before they closed. It was actually dwarf chain sword . I've been chasing pygmy chain sword since the day i decided to plant out my tanks


My plants now are.
Ludwigia (not sure which variety but it goes reddish on the underside of the upper leaves)
Cabomba
Cryptocoryne Lucens
2 Dwarf Pongols.
A bunch of chain sword that i wish was the dwarf sword i asked for.
2 suspected garden plants that came with a mixed bunch, both are showing some growth from new buds but the old leaves all dropped off soon after entering the tank (my light isn't brilliant so it's entirely possible they are aquatic but without enough light).

Well I haven't done it yet, but today is the day I will be breaking down all my tanks and packing them up and moving them into my mom's house, about an hour away. When I get there I get to clean out my old room, set up my bed and at least some of my tanks, get the fish (and cats) settled in, then turn around and drive back to get my boyfriend back since he will be driving the truck so i can follow with my car and turn the truck back in. It will be a nightmare of logistics, and I have 8 running tanks to move. Wish me luck!

Good luck! I know you will need it, I shifted all of my tanks twice in 12 months, re-homed loads of fish etc. it is time consuming and tiring without all the driving!
Hope the fishes get back ok! Drive safe!

Yeah its already "eventful"... the electricity got cut off not long after I posted earlier. Fun fun fun...

Also I lost my fish bags and the cats are rebelling.

I really really hate moving.

Holding tank (45) 8 litre water change. Contains obviously sick fish and Cory's.
Puffer tank, watched for ages, fed snail. PUFFERS ROCK
750, drain to 400.
120, observed, looks great wants more plants. Tetra shoal look great.

Spent yesterday tracking down worming meds, got some ordered for sat, today 1 fish looked bad, like it won't make it to Saturday. Went to store, chap changed my order and got a special consignment shipped to his shop for this afternoon.
I did convince him by showing him the full build process, after he discovered I'm a fish fanatic he couldn't do enough to help.
They arrived promptly, notified by phone rushed back to the store and then home, calculated volumes for all of my tanks at the current level and administered a shed load of fizzy tablets.
Phew!

Just the night feed and then I'm done!
