I was looking at the fish and low and behold I found some fry hanging out in the java moss covered driftwood caves! 3 is all I've seen.

Yesterday I did a 50% water change on the 26gal community, 2 x 50% changes on the 5gal fry tank, watched my mystery snails lay eggs I think, organised my two amazon swords for a swap later today (getting some java moss, java fern and some freshwater seaweed stuff in return for them possibly) they've gotten miles too big for my tank :-( oh & stared at the baby fish and noticed that a lot of them are still getting their colours. Can you get black platys??

Today I've stared at and fed my fish...

I thought they'd be born when I go on vacation. I'm glad I got to see them.

I restocked my feeder breeding tank with guppies. Cichlids and crayfish will be happy.

Doing a pwc on my 40g breeder .. been pulling out duck weed, dead moss, dead plants .. I've almost filled a 1g bucket (mostly duckweed and unsalvagable riccia) this is the out cone of 2 weeks of neglect. :/
Thinking out cleaning the canister filter

3 other tanks need pwc.. maybe wait till tomorrow

Need to figure out which tank to take down .. I've exceeded my quota I'm only allowed 3 and I have 4. opps: so addicting

Today I had to break down my 29G to do a MAJOR vinegar scrub. it was so bad that it was not just on the top rim of the tank but the sides as well. And making my tank look hazy. Not to mention the filter cover and light cover looked awful as well. My fish may appreciate the Ph but my tank does not. Thinking of investing in a water softener for the house to see if it will help with the calcium lines. Before that I fished out more fry to put in the nursery tank, I've found ten total so far.
