That's before. I'm treating the water every 12 hours to keep the levels safe for the fish. I've been doing a 50% wc every 24 hours

Noooo I'm lookin at a 6#er if he doesn't start eating these pellets. Then it will be only live food for him unfortunatly.

He seems to love to eat the temp probe

Did 2 50% back to back pwc today because I missed yesterday on the QT.

Did 20% on Chi.

Cleaned out snail & plant over flow (2 buckets) and added a Betta, the male that was in the cup marked female, and had been banished from the sorority tank. Figured he would like it in a 5 gallon bucket much more than a pet store Betta cup. Haven't decided to keep him or not yet.

Found one bucket of moss and a few plants I forgot about outside. Curious to see if it survives the VERY cold winter.

Made a huge mess in the 12G Edge tank. Trimmed some plants and replanted the pieces, replanted a number of plants which had been up rooted by the Albino BN Pleco trouble pals. Seems to be what they do for fun, and hide under the DW. 20% pwc before the trimming and a 5-10% after. The water was a big mess with food particles in the substrate from planting and moving around the DW. Guess I am still over feeding.

Need to try to do a substrate clean soon. Hard because it is mostly plants now. Removed dead leaves, threw a bunch of fresh, trimmed off leaves into the plant bucket to see if they might grow little plantlets, along with some pieces of Foxttail to see if it turns into little plants. Occasionally my Ludwigia Repens x l. Arcuata will grow a little plant on a leaf.
