Started to move things around so I could pick up a 265 gallon tomorrow I was getting for $75 with a stand. Then got a text he found a crack in the bottom after draining. I called the glass shop and was told $418.56 for a new bottom piece. Ugh. The dream is gone. Disappointed. Waiting for the next deal of my life.

Maybe you could treat some plywood and make a new bottom. Probably cheaper than glass and it can be hidden with substrate.

It seems i may have found my dosing regime. Two forms of algae have receded to a point that i'm not bothered by it and the BBA is not growing. this is over about three days so i'll just say it quietly

Kuhli loach is getting more outgoing and all his Neon tetra and Harlequin Rasbora tank mates are happy and healthy. Comets are good but their tank is full of floating plants, again, third replant this week. Will move their crypts into a 6g shrimp tank i'm setting up. Off to the LFS to see if they have more Khulis and Rasboras. I'll quarantine them at home if they've restocked.

I have a tangle of Kuhlis 6 in total. Still no Rasboras so i bought a small Bristlenose pleco. Also bought some frozen bloodworms and algae pellets for bottom feeders. Drip acclimatisation in progress. I'm learning to differentiate my Kuhlis while i can see them all together. Giving names to them.
Strike- has three dots like holes in a bowling ball on 2 brown segments.
Moe- Has a mosaic pattern just behind the head, smallest Kuhli too.
Bod- Has a band of dots on each brown segment so Band Of Dots Bod-->Bob
Cupid- Has a heart shape under his back fin.
Bling- Diamond shapes instead of solid brown bars.
Zeb- No dots, just stripes, so zebra.

No use me taking pics, i use my laptop as a camera since my last house burglery.
