Jump started the cycle on the new 65g hex
Found two little babies swimming in my "planted" 10g that houses 3 female mollies and ghost shrimp. Not sure if more are hiding amongst the plants/rocks or what, but only spotted two babies.

Got a new filter (Fluval 206), took it out of the box and looked it over.
I was thinking about putting the canister next to the tank stand and I was reading up in the manual how slack in the tubing is very discouraged. What??? I will definitely have to factor that in with the CO2 reactor I have not built yet. So I decided it will go into the cabinet. I cut the floating cabinet shelf in half and added a bracket for support. A shim was needed to make the shelf level. I saved the other half of the shelf and the support will allow me to remount it in the future if necessary. I still need to cut some holes in the back panel for the tubing; I've got some hole saw bits that should do the job. The right side of the cabinet has power strips, timers, food, and ferts. Going to put the test kit and other stuff that I don't use often in a closet.

Started a little 2.5g shrimp tank
Has some ghost shrimp and a blue mystery snail.
Plants:
Hornwort- planted tank
Java moss- planted tank
Anarchis- planted tank
Mondo grass- didn't realize it's not fully aquatic till I got home. Very conflicting info. We will see
Bamboo- just for fun.

Sand was leftover from another tank.

$15 for a Walmart light and (not Walmart) livestock. Think it's pretty cool.

It came from a 20 pound bag of national geographic white sand. I like it, it's not "dusty" like the Caribsea sand in one of my other tanks.

This one. It's in the gravel/decor section. I would look on Amazon to see if it is any cheaper. PetSmart runs about $1/pound with it.
