Did 50% WC, waiting to add the remaining two gallons to complete the refill (20G tank, took out 10. Only have 8 jugs. Waiting on other two to warm). Trimmed the 18" stem from my aponogeton plant and a small dead piece. The 18" stem just kept flowing behind a filter intake. Added bioboost amd regular water care fish health products. Had water checked at lfs again today. Nitrates were high. So, after all of that, just let my remaining fish (Dorothy and Stan) play and hopefully live through the end of the nitrogen cycle. These two have been troopers. I have faith.

My x-ray pristella with a mystery illness was no better after 3 weeks and 3 rounds of treatments. She had another big lesion this morning. As long as she was swimming in antibiotic the lesions were arrested but started again as soon as they stopped. So it was time to euthanize since she wasn't going to get well and would suffer. She was a good little fish and I'm really bummed.

After that I bleached the QT and everything associated with it. Sad day.

My sister's platy passed this evening. He wasn't eating for a few days, so we knew he was on his way out. She is so sad.

I am so sad for everyone that lost fish.

Ty. I'm sorry for your sister's loss as well. Been a lot of loss here lately. Hope things get better soon for all.

Today is water change and filter cleaning, day; but right now I'm just watching and enjoying.

Set up my walstad vase yesterday, and let the dirt settle. Fed the fish. Hoping to get some RCS to put into my vase.

Since my last post i have cleared up my kuhli tank of greenwater. It took me a ridiculously long time to do though. Aside from that little of note has happened this week. I still have 4 cherry shrimp left in the Kuhli tank, possibly more but they hide out more than they used to. It's rare to see them now. I thought they were all gone though so any sighting is nice.

The tank maintenance schedule for this afternoon is to do 80 litres of water changes and spoil my fish a little more with food before i do the changes. Kuhli tank has had bloodworms and white mosquito larva as has the community tank They will get some Omega one community pellets and after the WC an algae wafer which is mostly eaten by the snails in the tank. Comets had banana, lettuce and some omega one goldfish pellets. They will get peas after i type this then i break up an algae wafer after the WC. I'm trying to wean them off flake foods since they seem to enjoy working the larger pellets around in their mouths. My Betta has had a small feed of bloodworm and of blackworm, plus a tiny sprinkle of flakes. She will probably just get some pellets after her water change.

I have everything ready to go for a Betta breeding project now too. I bought a heater yesterday and decided which breeding tank to use of my spare/unused tanks. I'll be using a friends male Betta with my girl so once young Sonic gets delivered I can begin the introduction process. This will be my first attempt at setting out to breed fish and i haven't seen anyone locally who breeds them. Hopefully i don't wind up with a lot of Bettas i can't offload. I know that professional breeders have a pretty specific idea about the genetics of their fish and what look their progeny will deliver, but for me i hope to see a little bit of variety in the look of the progeny. The female i bought is a blue crown tail with a red band running inside her fins, she shimmers with different color from light blue to purple, hints of green at times too depending on the angle you see her from. The male is also a crowntail and has a red cap on it head, pale body with blue fins. I ahve no idea what they wil produce.
