What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

I wrote this yesterday but didn't post till now

Just picked up some pennywort at Fauna (LFS in NYC) and stared at their 300 gal tank for so long my neck hurt. Found a newborn platy fry and a few-day-old guppy fry in the tank right before I had to go to the doctor and caught them anyways Hopefully there are more that didn't get eaten...yet. Put a powerhead on the sponge filter and got the air pump out of the hallway, it was getting kinda annoying. The LFS that we brought our MM platies into in exchange for credit for a female betta should get some in this Tuesday or Thursday, need to get a companion for Fred. Starting to work on my gold award on water quality and fish treatment!!! Also, if someone could ID this fish I would be so greatful, I love how it looks and its size. It's the cichlid-looking one in the upper right.

Just got home from PetCo and got some materials for my gold award, trying to brainstorm and see if I should just work on water quality in general or also do fish in captivity....not sure yet.

Mom saw a Gold Inca Snail that she wanted but I'm worried it will eat the plants, any thoughts?

It's a Girl Scout award, it's for HS students. It's basically a community service project that you create. And yeah I think that fish is a scarlet badis. Thanks.

Haha no worries and yeah it's cool, hopefully I can get the message out that it's not ok to keep a betta in a small unfiltered unheated bowl lol

After a whole year of taking pictures with blemishes, I finally got annoyed and cleaned the front glass on 5 systems! First time in a while!

Water changes, of course that's a different thing!

Later I'll be doing a night feed, food thawing, I'm looking forward to it!


(Emerald, use a pigeon to send messages, I'm not sure how good they spell but it must be better than an owl!)

It's the equivalent of eagle scout, pretty much.

I rendered my heater useless because it was 82 in the house and the tank is right next to the wood stove-bad evaporative losses tell you what.
