update

The Betta seems alive and has moved locations today a couple times. Thank you all for the good wishes for him. He is so pretty and has a friendly disposition so I would miss him. I added a little more StressCoat since it helps his slime coat.

Finished the pwc and also did a quick vac on the 72G and the new White Crayfish was running around exploring and I took a pic, then took a pic of the new Rainbow, Melanotaenia parkinsoni, too.

Finally got around to measure the amount of water in the water change pail. It's an old Reef Crystal container. It's 5 gallons. I thought it was more (7.5-10 gallons). So I've been reporting a higher water change percentage than it actually is. IMO knowing what the nitrate level is and how much of a water change brings it back to the target range is more important than an arbitrary percentage. If I did 50% WCs that would be great but 25-35% seems to work in this tank (probably 50% stocked, med-heavily planted).
Come to think of it, the water change pail I've been using strongly resembles the 5 gallon pails they sell at hardware stores.

It's safe to say that Kuhli Loach are my favorite fish at the moment and now that i have 14 in a tank together they are becoming a lot more fun to watch. The 6 i had in my community tank were very shy and always hidden. I started a Kuhli only tank (with RCS cleaning crew) and placed 8 in there which come out to swim laps when the filter goes off. The older stock i had were rarely seen in their community tank. The good news is that since adding the original 6 to the 8 recent purchases they're all having a massive Kuhli party together now. It took me about 2.5 months to get to see the first batch of them i bought playing in the open but they seem very happy to be out and about today. A couple of them that i thought had died even stopped to human watch at the front of the tank. They are FAT though. I guess 2.5 months in Al's kitchen will put some weight on you. I would say the new stock are 1/4 as thick around the middle as the original group that i have had a chance to fatten up. I thought my big pleco in the community tank was eating most of the food, but my Kuhli were evidently getting plenty too.

Must go and do more Kuhli watching.
