Erased some old pics and added a couple new ones to my albums here on AA. Took a few quick pics.

Bought a new type of pre filter, it is really a filter foam part, for the Blue Velvet (BV) 12G Edge. Also got a little Fluval Edge prefilter, and I will see which one might work better, or together, one inside the other. My present one is loose and I found 2 BV shrimp in the hob case so with the new momma BV getting ready to drop, I didn't want to lose any babies to the filter.

Bought two Bamboo Shrimp tonight, they were some of the rugged-ist looking ones I have ever seen.

A small 2" one and a huge 4+" one. Here is the pic of the big one scared and just after being acclimated.

He stopped moving and I thought it was dead when I got home, but after catching the small one he seemed to have woke up.

After about 2 hours I looked at them again and both were beautiful cherry orange red!!! They looked NOTHING like this pale guy right here.



Here is one of the two clams bought a few days ago



Here is my pic of the Spotted Raphael Catfish right before I was going to scoop him up for the tank change into the 72G (pic was from last week).
He is all puffed up from being wedged inside his hiding cave. I have raised/had him since he was 1/2" long and he's now full grown and
appx. 5 1/2-6" long when he's not puffed up like a toad.

Added two bags of floramax to the 20h and capped it with sand I already had in there. Not sure what to do with the rest of the sand. Maybe add it to the fry tank.

Yikes what did I get myself into, lol!

Started messing with the 12G to add the pre filter and then thought I might as well clean it pretty good before the new baby Blue Velvet shrimp come.

Then since I was in there decided to try to get out the Platy fry I put in. (Without really thinking it through and before I realized the shrimp finally were mating, they are first time parents )

Since it is a Edge you already have to be a human pretzel to move around in there, especially with a crazy DW in there covered in Bobitis Fern and 50 other plants like a small jungle!!!!!!!!!

This is the early pic 4 months ago, now a jungle!


The substrate was full of uneaten food and snail poop. I did 4+ 50% pwc, maybe 5 because of so much gunk floating around, and refilling the tank for the water pressure so I could get better flow from the vacuum.

So it has been less than 15 minutes and the tank is nearly clear, just a little cloudy. Running the filter full blast and without a pre filter. Putting it back on in a few minutes.

Over feeders anonymous where are you???

I got out the larger fry and there is a microscopic newborn from the other day, and a very small one left, 5 or 6 moved into another tank for awhile until they are bigger than mouth size and can go into the 72G with their momma.

Just inquired about a free 55 gallon tank with everything. Haven't gotten an email back but I'm excited.

Sounds like a winner! Hopefully you can snatch it up.
