Went back to my LFS
and the baby elephant was gone absolutely gutted. So I'm now wondering do I add another tank or buy a bigger one for my guy and maybe add more!
55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon vampire shrimp, green lace shrimp and snails.
Ohhhhh so sorry to hear about the little EN. Maybe it wasn't the ONE for you. Maybe someone will need to trade one in because it is getting too big.
When you find the right one, you could do twin tanks with the two EN side by side but not together on a nice credenza, or a twin tank room divider...
As for the Amanos they really like to steal all the food and run off with it.
Your new shrimp are very nice. I hope to get some nice ones like that pretty soon.
The Rainbow Monti frag is coloring back up with the new better light on the 12G SW
Rimless Garden, but I think I killed my trumpet and my Acan looks pretty bad off, I think because of too much light. The diatoms went away and I did a little light clean on the glass. Today I am thinking of cleaning my big FX-5 filter, either that or give it a flush with the tank water to do a big 50% pwc
. I am thinking it would be better to do a cleaning.
So I am learning a little more about auto water changing set-ups. Still trying to understand what I will need to know to set up the 72G for sure and maybe a second tank. (especially if I am gonna get a BIG tank for the maybe Discus project)
Planning my 4 stop afternoon tomorrow for trading fish, plants and supplies for different plants, fish and supplies.
Getting some fresh MacroAlgae to feed my Urchin, need to get some organic raw sea vegetable sheets for him to try too.
Theresa - maybe the Goldfish would like those as they also come in flakes!
Also tentatively purchasing some CPD's from someone and some little Cories if they are still available. Seller's pretty far away but willing to meet so very excited Our local stores seem to be out or want crazy prices for them. Was about to an online purchase for nano fish and a school of Cories but if I can get these for now I will be happy.
Next few days I will be continuing the spring cleaning and organizing, the fish mess is crazy otta control. I have bunches of stuff I don't really need, and then things I need I can't find.
Getting rid of 2 tanks (really I am...)
