Sorry for the 2 posts in a row but i just returned from a visit to the new LFS that opened this week. The owner talked my ear off and wouldn't let me look at the fish for long . He is an enthusiastic fish lover and very excited about making a living out of his fish. He said he opened because the other LFS is expensive and offers no variety in filtration etc. Their fish all looked in good health. It sounds like he is going to be good for the hobby in town. He said he plans to get a few fish experts to lecture here. He had a background breednig marine fish and 4 varieties of seahorse. He has about 60 FW tanks in now and plans to add about 60 more for the reef side of things over the next three weeks. This shop is going to be great i think, but is a bit isolated so it could struggle without walk in customers.

And best of all the plants he had there were all different from what i am growing in my tanks . I just bought some Hygro Pisces/Sunset Hygro. I have a plant capable of becoming RED It has nice leaf patterns even if it does not go red. Would have bought another couple of plants but i only had $15 on me. I now have two shops in town that call out to me. My wallet may need resuscitating from the regular beatings it will be taking now.

I wish I had some, but I don't take pics of tanks that aren't mine, I'm weird like that, but I'll see if he has any and get links if possible. And yes, Mr Man (the puffers name) is quite the force to be reckoned with, splits fingertips of people crazy enough to tease him.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

I had to move someone. I ended up moving my gold saum.. He's grown to believe he owns the tank.. Which he should it's his size, but he wouldn't let anyone else out, my Pleco has chunks all over his fins taken out and tailless (my oh so special firemouth) had been cichlid stone bound for a few days popping his head out to bite at food and my jack Dempsey was starting to show signs of being scared. I took out all of the flat rocks, that made the gold saum want to breed, I tried warmer/colder temps so he wouldn't want to breed, still, he owned the tank and if anyone was seen moving, there's a problem. I was ping to move tailless, because he was having the biggest issue, the gold saum and jack Dempsey not liking his presence.... I must have not added him young enough.. He was last..

I'm torn tho. Because I don't see myself getting a bigger tank anymore. I planned on it. But at this point, I need one now and I can't. So... I have my 75 gallon and the 20 gallon, I need to either keep my dream fish, the gold saum that I've finally been able to tell is male, which I was hoping for. Or I re home the gold saum, and hope the jack Dempsey will deal with my firemouth (tailless) ...

My jack Dempsey and firemouth are so special.

Jack is blind in one eye, due to opaque eye at a young age when someone else owned it, and I started with him.

Tailless is special, all in his name. From all me and my lfs knows, he was born tailless and has done so well up until now.

My gold saum was my 2nd and I found out about his breed after I had researched a lot, and since then, he's been my dream fish.

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 big decisions to be made.

I wouldn't feel so bad re homing someone if I knew they were a good home, and that I could get updates.. But still.

Yesterday I did a 30 gallon water change. Should have been 60% but the tank looked like it was 75% empty. Did a thorough gravel vac of everywhere I could reach without moving decor. Did filter maintenance, removed the crushed coral that was loosely all over the place and replaced it with a pouch made of women's tights with the CC in it. Tried to add another sponge on top of it but there wasn't enough room.

Moved my tanks around in the mancave, did a 20% water change, stared at it for about 30mins, shut off the lights and enjoyed the shimmer from my blue lights, now imma search CL for more fish.
