Sorry to hear about your beta, and I apologize for my post, I posted in the wrong place. I feel awful whenever any of them die.

Very sad about your betta, and the larger tragedy you have had to deal with. I hope the pain gets easier to deal with as time passes

Found a couple of great big plants at a lfs. Kleiner Bar Sword and a fluffy big Java Fern.

Went crazy at Petco sale. Found lots of plants, and a few inverts and some new female Bettas.

Got a Dumbo Ear Betta for 3.75.

Found a problem after putting in my Betta girls to the tank, the one in there was attacking the rest and after pulling him out figured it was a placket male. He has grown up a little since I got him so it is easier to see him.

So the other two females which disappeared were probably killed He is now in a small bowl and none too pleased about it. Going to take him back to the store unless my daughter wants him.

So tired from all the shopping for the tanks. Also found the Edge tank is still available, so maybe picking it up in the beginning of the week.

But happy!

Hit the lfs picked up three acan heads and a palm sized piece of montipora spongeode each for $40 and three nassarius snails, got home dipped and acclimated the corals moved the frag rack from right to left side of tank to minimize the amount of natural sunlight they get since my two year old can't leave the blinds alone and finished up with @ a 20% water change, tomorrow I'll probably play around with one or two of the other tanks

I wasn't home for long today but managed.
20g #1 25% water change that i am doing every three days, about to add meds which is why i'm doing more frequent WC. Took lots of photos.
20g #2 40% WC to clear up some tannins, added a second T8 for the plants. Took lpts of photos.
Neglected the WC due for the Comets in the 36g. Not keen to take pictures of the scape they destroyed.
All three tanks- Fed pellets and flake in morning peas for dinner.

Now i go to colour my water green. Mouth fungus is not clearing up on one Neon tetra. It reduces in size then breaks out again, i had a second one show up with it after treatment started and it died two days later. Another tetra had fungus on its side which is gone, still some tail damage but it is healing. I have no more filters cycled for an extra QT tank and my QT tank has 2 new Harlequin Rasboras QT'd for 2 weeks now. Supposedly 4 is the recommended time by others though right? I may move the HR's into the community and the infected Tetra out. I picked up 4 free NT's which were in an unfiltered overfed tank that had been abandoned when the owner changed jobs. I think that three of them had the fungus, 1 died and the first to show signs is still suffering. I don't want it to spread to healthy fish.

Continued the never ending process of testing the water during my fish-less cycle.

So far today, the only thing that I have done is turn on the light and give the fish there breakfast.

Doing a pwc today on the 72G & QT and planning (plotting a scheme to justify another new to me tank) on picking up a used 6.6 Edge tank.

Sneaky me...
