Plans for today:
  • Treat 16g for BBA
  • Finalize a Han Aquatics order for more moss stuff, new addiction of mine
  • Switch out sponge filter for HOB in 10g, first need to rig something up for the intake to keep out shrimplets and Endler fry
  • Do small WCs in the nano tanks

"Wabi Kusa" & Planted Ball Growing



Moved around some heaters to get them better suited for the tanks I have to match with the heaters abilities.

Added the strip light to the 72G so there are 2 current lights and one stock growing light. Now I need to order some Glut/Metro to start dosing for the plants.

Just added a bunch of pic to my albums and will post some here too. Tonight or tomorrow.

Here is the Decorator Urchin
in the bag during acclimation


Carrying around the new bunch of MacroAlgae I got for him - he ate more than half of it since then!!!



Happy day!
Love the Urchin Autumn, the color is so cool!
The planted ball is really nice, haven't heard of them before

WCs on the planted, shrimp and QT. Shook out the contents of the HOB filter in the old tank water. Allowed it to settle and decanted/scooped out 90% of it. Glad I did. Found 12 baby RCS in there along with 2-3 dozen baby MTS. I have a sponge on the HOB filter intake although it is more coarse than fine. I have a mesh media bag that I am not using. If I can get past the whiteness of it, I might they that over the sponge.

Still treating the 16g for BBA. Kevin the nerite doesn't seem to be reacting to it well so I took him out for a while, gave him some broccoli.

Last night I spent a bunch of time cleaning up the dwarf water lettuce...got bored so I might do more today

Did some research on live food cultures. Going away next week so that project will get put on hold.

Some male Endlers from an AA member should be arriving today, very excited about that!

Been up since 5am for no particular reason so it's time for a coffee break

Fed the tanks. Yesterday did fast for the 16G and the 72G

The plants seem to be liking the additional new temporarily set light, Current strip LED laid over the top (testing to see if it is too much light for my dark tank, lol then find a good way to affix it) - plus my stock light and the Current LED fixture.

The big new Ozelot Sword seems to be perking up. and getting used to the tank. The large Hairgrass isn't dying off yet, so I think we are on the right track. I am pleased with that so far. Will need to order more fert caps, I use Ferka from Thailand and really like them but it takes a month for them to arrive. After I get done with the tank clean outs and this round of putting in new caps I will be out.

Spending a little more time wondering about how to move and set the tanks AGAIN, not moving them again, just thinking about it again. :/ I have to move things this next week so my waffling will need to end.
