After the part one of my 2 week trip, all fish were doing very well and well taken care of.

Going to do pwc on the tanks before heading out in the opposite direction for part 2 of the trip. Got to show off the tanks to family. All fish and tanks were appropriately ooh'ed and ahh'ed over. lol

It's good when you get the appropriate reactions from the tanks. I had a mate stop in recently and tell me my tanks had a lot of weeds in them

Enjoy the rest of the trip.

Weekend update. The warmer weather has arrived so I feel happier about working with my arms in water. But i woke up to a slow leak in my fantail tank which was an unhappy surprise in socks. 1x0.5 metre wet patch in the carpet and asize 9 sock that got an unexpected dip. The fish were due to be moved to a bigger tank that was ready enough to throw water, filter media and fish in. I think they knew i was procrastinating about getting them in the bigger tank and sabotaged the seals. WC was due in that tank today anyway so less of a big deal than it would have been if it happened tomorrow when i had to go to work at 6am. I had no plans to move them today.

Yesterday i trimmed down 4 buckets full of mixed clippings, saved a bunch of healthy tips for refreshing some tanks and replanted lots of new shoots in a humidi chamber to see if i can get emersed growth happening. The trimmed tips came in handy for my replant this morning.

I'll be doing some more tank shuffling soon. I'll move the plants from the leaking fantail tank along with the gravel into a betta tank that was thrown together with leftovers and no plan. Should be able to make a good scape this time round. Lots of Crypts. I'll add C. Parva, C. Lutea and C. Walkeri (the smallest crypts i can find) I may add sunset hygro and Java fern too. I'll see what space permits.

Last thing i have to do is complete my WC schedule. Got my comets and kuhli tank to do then it's fish watching all afternoon. It's been a productive weekend for my tanks so far.

Isn't it exciting to unexpectedly find fry?


I did a 50% water change and then put bad endler fry as he's been dubbed in solitary confinement. Seeing as he won't stop chasing my male molly.
