Told I made some Repashy Spawn and Grow and put it in the bottoms of little flower pots. I then put the pot bottoms in some of the tanks. Repashy is always a bit hit with my fish. I add a little garlic juice to it. I forgot to feed my white worm culture 2 days in a row now but I did feed heavily a few days ago. OOOPS. I moved a betta to bigger quarters also. He seems happier.

I ordered new Crypts off TPT. Then I fed my fish frozen Cyclops for the first time. Fun watching them spit a few out and then go nuts chasing food around the tank. Happy Corydoras with fat bellies.

That's an inch of ice and it's 22 degrees outside. The goldfish are still okay though. I might break it up and go arm deep in 33F water to turn up the flow rate on my pump to be sure it doesn't freeze.

Barely anything, added RO/DI to 12G.

Got the fish from QT tank set to go home with DD. For 2 months we have been messing around with fish for her tank. She bought appx 15 Black and Neon tetras, and out of all of them, it seems there only survived one Neon and one Black Neon. The Glow Light Tetras all were fine and the Marble Hatchets and the Cory are all well. She is mad about the weak stock and how she wasted the money. Next time a better store, like where I got her the Hatchets from.

A couple days ago I think I saw my male and female albino Bristlenose Plecos working on breeding. Pretty sure...

Watched my Pearl Gourami which is normally the most relaxed and easy going fish, chasing around all the Angelfish. I think he finally got annoyed by them chasing HIM all the time. Will try to keep an eye on him a little, maybe send him home with DD.

You might want to get a low wattage surface heater for that tank. It will keep a small hole open at the top for gas exchange while drawing only 100w.
The problem with using water flow to keep the surface free of ice is that you can supercool the water in the process. I did that once and the goldfish huddled next to a clay pot and developed a thick slime coat. Once I reduced the flow the slime coat went away.
