Took out all the gravel tonight. Got some green stuff that I don't think is algae. Doing a 50% wc tomorrow. Also removing and scrubbing the decos. Adding a dark background.

I did a water change on my 29g, and bought my 20L to realize after I had gotten home that it's cracked on the bottom, yay. I also bought a new betta which was gonna go in the 20, but since that isn't possible he's in a breeder net.

Added three new angelfish to my 60 gallon. Two platinums and a koi. All small. Joining a dwindling endler community and a few dwarf africans. Oh, and one medium sized koi angel who was most unhappy to see the new arrivals. LOL
60g - Lot's of endlers and 4 P.Taeniatus Moliwe (and babies)
20g Long - a few endlers and RCS
20g Long - Chilli Rasboras, Scarlet Badis, RCS
29g SA biotope - many SA inhabitants

Feeding and ferts. Topped off the tanks even though i am doing a PWC tomorrow. Added some more dwarf sag and crypts to my shrimp tank and trimmed the Bacopa that was in the center rear down to stubs; hope they grow back.

Only after taking the pic did I realize that the dwarf sag are almost lined up in a row. Oh, well.
They throw off so many runners, they won't be lined up for long, lol.

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Bought a 20 long to go with a betta, 4 red eye tetras, 3 platies, and either a dwarf pleco or a ram ( if they work ). Bought a 1/2g and a betta. Bought tank nibblers, a snail, a hi fin platy, 3 glofish danios, and 4 mondo grasses for the 10g. Going back tomorrow!!!!!
Planted 10g, still need to get top and heat for 20g. Fish spending night in a 10g temporarily ( which since the red eyes and platies are small we can get away with it for a bit ) what do you think?http://i866.photobucket.com/albums/a...psdu96ozat.jpg

I failed at making a DIY bubble counter today. Turns out that 3/5 of the one way valves i bought in one pack leak from the side and one of the bottle tops with tubing insert now leaks a lot after squeezing bottles to find leaks. Probably been wasting or inhaling half the CO2 i have run for a couple of months. No wonder i start falling asleep when i watch the 20g tank. Always thought that some bottles just didn't produce much compared to others. Seems the valves are the cause.

Did 50% WC, fed flakes, some diced lettuce leaves i grew specifically for the Comets with their waste water.

top up, fed NT's, HR's and Kuhlis on bloodworms for the first time plus some lettuce.

Set up a spare 20g to soak a few bits of driftwood i found. One will be well loved by my Kuhlis. It has a small tunnel network with a few narrow bits. They seem to love wriggling through a tiny opening in a rock formation they mostly dwell in. I'll possibly burn another tunnel into it with a soldering iron tomorrow

Finally have enough plants that no WC waste is tipped on the ground by the end of the week and lots of lettuce ready to harvest. I have basil and oregano plants that are begging for a trim too. Pretty happy with the startup plants i have ready for the aquaponics setup i will build soon. Have about 30 strawberry plants emerged and getting new leaves and a lot of different seeds to get running when i replant what i have in water.

And finally i built a simple play tube i hope to picture my Kuhlis in. Just a suction cap holding some clear tube from their cave sytem and leading up to the middle of the tank. Going to see if they're using it now.
20g rescape.
35g journal. Abandoned due to Comet gardeners
