LOL, bad cray! I saw mine crawl up the dw and start chopping away. I was wondering why perfectly good leaves were ending up stuck to my intake every day! I kinda just forgot how troublesome they can be.
So is there a new Cray tank yet???
Got the switch-things-up bug today.
Moved two Green Neons out of my 6.6G Edge tank and into the 12G Edge to be with the other Green Neons. When I bought them They were mistakenly called Sundanios Axlerodi Blue Neons. Since they were so small they looked about the same.
Now the 6.6G has 3 Scarlet Badis. 5 Chilis, Boraras brigittae And a few shrimp 2 Fire Red and a Brown colored Cherry and a pale one, left over from the last batch. The future stocking of this tank will be other Nano fish and no worries about the eating the shrimp part. If you want you can PM me any ideas for further stocking, or add it here
The 12G Edge is the Blue Velvet Shrimp tank. There are Green Neons and 3 adult Celestial Pearl Danios, adding the 8 babies from the QT now! Well only found 7, unless one is hiding in the Crypts. Or two got into the net at the same time time, hmmmm. Since they swim pretty fast it is difficult for me to count them, and since it is a little jungle can't see that well anyway.
That empties 1 more tank of fish anyway, still has plants for now.
The 6.6G got a complete filter clean out and in the middle of trying to catch the Neons I moved rocks and DW and kicked up a ton of gunk. So changed 6 gallons of water, remove, add, remove, add, remove, add, and left off the sponge to clear up the tank a little faster. So I can see the need for a serious substrate cleaning pretty soon. Added extra Prime.
So tried to do this tank for the last year, as a minimal interference type thing to see if that would work for me. I would have to say it did not work out well for me.
Will be adding additional water testing to the schedule. Future shrimp tank breeding efforts will feature more structure in the process.
Have just 4 fish in the 16G, and decided to let them stay there to keep the bioload up for the filters.
Well that is enough for today I guess.
