Wow looks great! Congrats on the upgrades, new tanks can be fun

On another note, just found a great LPS today! The staff is average, but they do admit it, which is, I think, the best trait that a LFS employee can have besides actually knowing what to stock in what size tank I looked at the tanks three times to take it all in and saw 3 fry in the guppy tank which I got for a dollar each. Now I have 8 fry that are all about the same size! The LFS also has tanks (I have my eye on a 55er) and plants too! I saw a label for a shell dweller but sadly there weren't any in the tank...hopefully they're popular and I can get some next time And to think this morning I didn't think that today would be a big fish day...oh how wrong I was

So far today I have fed the fish, made sure that no bullying is going on between the older fry and the day-olds, organized the fish cabinet (it was such a mess), fed some seaweed (which they absolutely LOVE) and now I'm mixing some more fish food since I was running low. Mom is starting to get pulled in, as an obsessed fish keeper I am glad to pull people in :P

Cut a few strips of PVC to serve as a deterrent for a curious canine. The cabinet doors for my stand slide left and right. The strips basically prevent the doors from sliding. One for each door track.

Please excuse the crude Madden-esque arrows. While I was out this afternoon, the dog caught a whiff of some smelly but good fish flakes/powder, pushed the door aside and went to town. He only got to one ziplock bag of fish food.
I might spray paint them black or dark brown so they don't look so obvious.

Yeah pets can be annoying when they go and eat the fish food.

Looks nice Ndefil! Is that blue and orange fish a gourami or a discus? I can't tell for sure but looks like a gourami.

Cleaning out some stuff and found a bunch of rocks and also a filter and a UV Sterilizer which don't know if the last two work yet or not.

A couple days ago, I took off the sock covering my SW intake on the 15G, this caused my flow to really UP and blast through which I found was too much for my little frags and the two Montiporas ended up upside down which I didn't notice because of a very busy work schedule. When I got them off the sand bed at the end of the next day, they were upside down and very damaged, the yellow green nearly gone and the reddish pink was a little bit left and is possibly going to recover some more and grow. Can't tell for sure yet. I moved them down a little lower to avoid the turbulent water.

Also the Ricordea was flipped over and was saved in time and moved a little bit so it would be more secure.

It has been really busy and I haven't had enough time to take care of everything like I want to. Going to be getting rid of a couple more tanks to reduce the load for now.

that kinda sums it up for me right now.

aww that's too bad Autumnsky

Yesterday I found two fry in my dad's tank and he said that they were there since Friday! He insists they stay in the main tank to see if they won't get eaten I'm worried about them but the parents are actually chasing the other platy away, he has been exiled to the corner lol. I hope these two little fry survive!

Today I switched from my two temp internal filters to my new external Had to hack some more holes in the hood for the plumbing though...

I also tidied up some of my plants, wiped off some of the brown algae that's accumulated on the glass lately, and fed flake and courgette.
