I stand corrected good luck with that lofty goal If there was an algae shot of the month i'd be in the running for it this month.

I lost a Neon Tetra that swam behind a filter and found 1 of 2 holes designed for extra suction cups (i guess). Counted 9 that i could see and searched for the last. He managed to stick his stomach over hole behind the filter and had a big lump sucked into the hole. I lifted the filter off and he was still stuck so i turned it off and opened it and he dropped off. He died about half hour later but was still moving around a little in the container i put him in. I guess it had bad internal damage. Poor little guy. I fixed the situation for future by cutting some spare sponge filter i had and wedging it into the holes. Hopefully thats the last filter related death i have for a long time.

Ordered an AC 50 for my 20g. There isn't enough water movement with the AC 20 that I have now. I still have $70 to spare so I might get the EI ferts, leaving me with $40ish. Still trying to figure out what else to get. Any suggestions?

Bought some Osmocote + without water storage crystals yesterday (only one shop in town has them without the crystals) so i also searched for gel tabs and made some DIY Osmocote plus root tabs. Added some to my 20g. Wont add to the 35g as comets dig everywhere and will probably eat more than the plants.

Scrubbed algae off a lot of leaves and saw my plants pearling like crazy near the top of the tank. It's the first time i've seen more than an odd leaf pearl. Tank watched for about an hour. All fish look healthy but fairly bloated. Will cut back on feeding a little. I hope the new root tabs will convince my Pygmy chain sword to spread.

Went to the lfs for a light bulb.....

Then I found....................

Well I found some new Angelfish.

These pics are from the lfs and I got two striped ones and two koi ones. Not the light colored one he just got in the way!

Here are the pics




I got a new light bulb, they were 1/2 price along with the t-5 Zoo med light fixtures, changed my light bulb.

Did a clean out on my daughter's late Betta's tank. She finally decided not to get another fish.

Pwc on 37G.

Last night did pwc on 5G Chi tank.

Filled all the evaporation on all the tanks, of course fed.

Taking a break but need to do pwc on 16G and 12G
