Just bought 3 more tanks. When will it end. Lol Feed frozen brine shrimp to the pals. And ran the lights for 7 hours. All is well. Except 3 of the albino cories I got as a bday gift, have passed away.

Lowering temperature on my quarantine tank after doing 10 days of heat treatment for ich on my new black widow tetra and peppered corys.

White spot stopped showing after second day and fish showed no sign if stress at any point.

Highly recommended this method of treatment. But it's SUCH a relief to be able to return the temperature to normal.

Wait - forgot.
Am planning to put some of my plants in pots, with pottingsoil capped in gravel. I don't like the look of the pots so I attacked them with pliers and filed down the sharp edges. Terracotta is really soft!

That's really neat, is it getting pushed down into your gravel or just sitting at the back?

I want to bury it into the gravel as much as I can, but the gravel isn't deep enough to completely bury it. Probably will get placed as deep in as I can, and near the back.

Thats a good idea with filing down the pots Masha.

Morning- Small feed for both tanks before work.

Afternoon- Larger feed then a 50% water change on 2 x 20G.

Trimmed back both tanks which had some really long Ludwigia stems and replanted them to make some fairly dense stands. This is such an easy plant to grow. I did the same with my Cabomba but it isn't growing quite as wildly. I also scrubbed some algae off leaves.

During the scrubbing i found three bunches of snail eggs which i assume are from the Ramshorns i bought on Friday. I should have a large population soon if they lay eggs in these kinds of numbers.
