10 gallon water change and filter cleaning. Moved an amazon sword to the QT and planted more wisteria in its place.

Edit: used my "fancy" algae scrapper magnet on the front glass.

Trimmed some plants. After a two week QT, added the Ember Tetras and Otos.

Got ten. I think two or three are male so hoping that's a good ratio.

Also just picked up a nice piece of mopani. It's boiling in the kitchen as I type.

That's great, what size tank are they going in? My only complaint with CPDs is that they're sooooo difficult to photograph

20g high. Really hoping to get a bigger tank this year, 50g+. Yeah they are pretty small and darting around. Hopefully they will slow down when they get used to their new surroundings.

Got some goodies!!!

First day was a huge Giant hair grass (Eleocharis montevidensis) I picked up for a good deal for 6.49, checking out if my lights can support them before I get some more.

Another day was one Rosette Sword and 3 twisty little plants, not absolutely which kind for $10.

SW- And the I think, aforementioned collector Urchin. I found him some additional Macroalgae Fern Calerpa and Grape Calerpa.

Then a white long polyp leather for almost $23 appx 3 inches. It seemed cool but the polyps didn't seem to be long like the tannish one, so I am wondering about it. Seemed like a regular Toadstool leather but white instead of green and tan. It was completely open, so not turning stony or sick. I just had the feeling it was worth getting though we will see after I try to get an correct ID. I can always take it back. Going in with Saddleback Clowns.

There was a pretty neat looking Porcelain Crab for 14.99 (a little high but worth it to me to get it) and then a yellow "ninja Star" snail, a couple clumps of rooted Halimeda, and a big chunk of white live sponge. Two little frag amounts of Blue Star Cloves, they are going to get their own special rock away from the others - Because I know they spread. All went into the 12G Rimless garden.

Super fun additions!!!

2 gallon pwc on SW 12G and 3 gallon on SW 15G. Add evap water for 5G SW.

Found a new home for a few Blue Velvet Shrimp locally. Yay!!! Lotsa fun.

Angel pair #2 just laid eggs again!!! Wow, busy, busy!

Driftwood's been boiling for about five hours now. Tannins are finally thinning out but some more to go. It's bedtime soon, so into a bucket to soak overnight!
