Maybe my last few Angel babies are hiding but I didn't see any today.

I did my first PWC since getting my albino corys, and boy was it an experience. Either my corys are really curious or I smell like food because two of them were wiggling their barbels all over the back of my hand the second I reached into the tank.

I moved some gravel around in the tank but I screwed up the tubing for the airstone and now it's floating instead of being anchored under gravel. I keep waiting for my local PetSmart to get airline suction cups back in stock, but it seems like I'll have to give up and get them online instead.

I removed a chunk of floating plants today that had BGA on it. Accidentally left the light on for about 14 hours yesterday. Filled up my sterilite container for a 50% change tomorrow.

Yesterday one of the guppies had fry, it's now been 4 generations of guppies Three fry were born yesterday but I saw only one in the net so we moved the largest fry from the net into the main tank (we thought he might be eating the teeny ones).

Now, I've got 12 of those guppies born yesterday/last night, and I just found a platy fry in the tank! It looks the exact same size as the guppies, it's just orange. Could both fish have had fry at the same time? Did one trigger the other into having fry? The platy was looking big yesterday or two days ago, I remember thinking she was about to have fry.

We moved the dad platy from the mom's tank into the tank with the danio fry (who aren't actually danio fry anymore lol, in fact I think they're going to lay eggs soon).

I removed some pond snails from the big tank, not a fan of how they breed soooo much, and I think the shape of the ramshorns is more appealing.

Did 3 big pwc in the last 3 days, the uncycled filter and extra fry food caused the Angelfishes one eye to cloud a little and I got the water back to a healthy level but I feel bad missing the conditions even more now. Used the dip sticks for testing because I was in a hurry and they weren't accurate I guess, which is weird since the last time I checked them with the liquid test kit and they were correct. So I am not sure what the difference of a few weeks.

I plan to clean the tank out all together and put the Angels back into the big tank tonight or Sunday. I added the new Fluval Aquaclear 30-50 (200GPH) to the 35G tank with the sponge filter. With more Melafix.

The Angelfish pair in the 72G tank took the time with the other pair being away to lay eggs on a huge DW in the tank it weighs maybe 20 lbs soaked so I won't be moving it. They were all lovely looking no bad ones left. The eggs generally only last a day or 2 before the rest of the fish have a snack.

But now I know there are 2 pair of them. This pair is a Marbled Koi And a peachy pink Golden Veil from what I can tell more peachy pink than the pic... Baby pic


baby pic


New tank passed the water holding test but will be caulking the bottom anyway. Just to be on the safe side.

Picking up the corals I planned on getting tonight and should be ordering the other 2 tonight after I get home. Getting to stop by a couple lfs to check for some good deals. Yipee!! Fun evening.

Friday found my daughter at my house when I got home from work and she water to take home her fish from my 72G, a Purple Spotted Gudgeon, the whole reason she got her tank. So he has evaded being caught at least 4 other events due to all the plants and DW.

We took out the biggest DW, still hiding, then the second, and still couldn't get him, then the 3rd, then hiding in the dense Vals under behind the intake which is almost the size of my hand (FX-5). Finally caught him!!!

So when we pulled out the huge DW, there is a hide out crevice in it and the Spotted Raphael Cat had himself wedged into the spot. I knew they would bloat themselves up with water to wedge into a spot, but he had the hardest dorsal fin and was pinned into the spot with the Dorsal and I guess his Pelvic fins but I couldn't really see. So after my 9 hr day at work I have the 2 tops, two lights and 3 big DW pulled out of my tank water splashes here and there.

And a ~6" catfish wedged in a log and won't come out. We tried tickling him and gently pushing the Dorsal, no, not coming out.

Finally filled up the bucket all the way so that the water would fill the space he was in in the DW and hope he would swim away when he felt like it.
Here is the DW in the 72G. He was in the biggest one underneath and it didn't exactly fit IN the bucket!!!



Cleaned all the gunk off the top glass an cleaned up all the water.

Like that wasn't enough fun for one night.......

I added my other pair of Angelfish back into into the 72G from the breeding tank because it needs to be cleaned out. Then the pair that remained in the tank went crazy because of the other pair in their territory. The tank was basically rescaped and everything moved, the DW was put back into a different formation and I put the big Anubias into the center for a divider one pair for each side.

Nope, they weren't having that. Now the 72G pair are in a bucket till I get home from work tonight and can watch them, or at least clean out the 35G and put them in there.

That was a LONG day. Ah, how I would just like to curl up on the couch and watch my peaceful fish, lol.

Today I did PWC on 5 tanks. Have water sitting for changing 3 more tomorrow. Trying to decide what to do with my Fluval Spec. Its about 2 gallons and the top has a round hole just big enough for a few of the cats to get it stuck around their heads. They like to drink out of my tanks.

Busy, busy Autumn! It's all go for you and you finally caught your Gudgeon Yay!

Pwc on both tanks, rearranged my elephant nose tank and removed some rcs since he's been chasing them and banging into things, at the moment he's got lips like Mike Jagger again! Think he'd learn

Shrimp have settled well into my other tank, at least they won't become lunch.
