My favorite is your vampire shrimp! I may need to try those again.
Thanks! Gonzo is doing really well with the shrimp, I've got rcs, ninja and amanos and he's not bothered any. Hopefully it will last as I'm wanting to add more rcs so we'll see.
I love my vampire shrimp how sad am I! I actually added green lace shrimp in with them but haven't spotted them today so I'm still looking.

The Green Lace are such cool little guys. I hope they are just hiding really well. Post if you find them when you report in!

So nice to hear they are found.

Well did some checking in the 16G and didn't see my Golden Nugget Pleco This was SOOOO sad, I was hoping he just found a really good hiding spot... for days. The tank is a bunch of misc. plants and a big gob of moss and DW, rocks and BB bulk media pads so seeing in all the spaces is difficult if not impossible.

Cleaned out the 2 little filters on the 16G. And did a ~40% pwc. Added back minerals to keep the pH stable.

Also added a little AC filter which fits onto an Edge tank with a pad of seasoned BB filter media and added a new piece as well as I think I will be using it pretty soon for the Edge glass tank part I still haven't decided what exactly to do with.

I had set IT up outside on the table like this.


now the rocks are 50% bright green from algae there was just a couple inches of water in it. I gave one of the rocks to some shrimp to munch on lol. These weren't intended to be "Algae rocks" Oopsy.

PWC on 6G Edge and 12G Edge tanks. Almost out of Prime, lol!

Sorry to hear about your gold nugget could he possibly have squeezed himself in somewhere?

I think maybe squeezed himself OUT through the back hole...I can't really see behind the tank with so many wires and the tight space. I will be moving all that stuff in the next couple weeks so I will maybe really know.

Thanks Kitty.

Picked up a new test kit since all my tests are pretty old, and I got some mollies for my 56. Two Dalmatian lyretails, a silver, and two blacks. When I got home I realized I had three males to two females, so I will be picking up a couple more girls soon. Eventually I'm going to add some panda cories and some angels. Tank is cycled but I want to take it slow stocking.


And I got my boyfriend to get an account here! Dmricau87 is his screen name. I'm giving him a tank so I want him to soak up all the knowledge he can first! Probably it will be my 20 tall, I think thats the biggest one I have that he can fit.

Smashed some pond snails and watched my pleco eat the bodies.
