Pullled a dozen or so pest snails from the Endlers tank, popped them in the live-foods jar. Noticed another batch of fry so taking them out will be a project for later. Moved all the blue pearl shrimp to free up that tank for a dwarf puffer. There were definitely far more than the original group I got not too long ago! Broke off some small-tank sized pieces of manzanita and I have those boiling, water is so dark it looks like coffee.



After I have a soaked piece for the DP tank I can start deciding what plants to put in. Really getting excited about this project!

You don't plant it. I split my "ball" of java moss into 70/30 balls and took the smaller piece' arranged it across a piece of slate and wrapped fishing line around it to keep it down until it attaches itself. The bigger piece has been left floating

Carrying buckets does suck! I got tired of making multiple trips up and down the stairs doing water changes. I now use a giant tub that holds around 25g, I'll fill it around half way and suffer carrying the weight twice vs carrying a 5g bucket 6-7 times

Couldn't imagine having to go up and down the stairs with loads of buckets. I found a large 40 litre bucket so I usually fill that up then get a bucket and do it that way, it's quicker but still sore Lol keep thinking about a python but not sure about those 😕
