Cleaned the tank on the weekend and looking better. Weather was 40C (104F), down the street said they got 46C - was pretty tempted to join the fish . Tank temp is holding at about 25 to 26C thank goodness.

On my day off...finally...

I moved my Pearl Gourami from my 16G to the 72G.

Took the Cardinals school from the 37G to the 72G, and the momma Rainbow Blue Platy.

She seemed to be in the middle of having babies but the Koi Angels pair would eat them anyway.

Took the previous 4 fry and the 3 new ones and put them into the 12G Edge.

Cleaned the Fluval 110 on the 37G. Moved some rocks and added one so there are now 2 semi flat surfaces for them to lay eggs on.

Cleaned the prefilter on the 16G.

Cleaned the 12G edge filter and prefilter and did a 40% pwc.

Added water from evaporation.

Cleaned out my 2 extra plant buckets, saved some red RH snails and added them to 2 tanks. made all of the yuck go away and kept a nice clean bucket and was able to empty into the other one. Saved some of the little seed shrimp from the buckets.

Had both the 12G Edge Fluval filter and the Fluval 110 not restart so I had to reclean the impellers for both. That made me a little nervous about their longevity.

Cory still alive, not sure yet? Yesterday she was ok. Today not so good? Overall her condition looks ok. I mean better than the weekend.

Other than all of that, I'm excited about the fry (again!) that never gets old!

Bought 14 dwarf zebra hermits for the 20, well 8 for the 20 and the rest will go in the 37. Did some aquascaping in the 37, gave the mantis and the rock he was in to the lfs for a 8lb piece i will put in the 20. Still had to pay for the extra 4lbs as the rock i gave was only 4.

Found this for you.

MOUTH FUNGUS - not a fungus but caused by Chondrococcus columnaris bacteria.

Search, cotton wool mouth fungus.

Sorry about the fish, hope this helps.

Redness means ammonia burns...
