Picked up SW
for the new 35G build; the LR
has been bubbling away maybe 3 weeks I think. I feed it a little every now and again to feed the BB.
Stared at all sorts and types of FW
fish and inverts today for a long time wandering in the fish store. Thinking mostly about stock for the 35G SW
and dreaming of Discus. The Discus at the lfs
were 90% dreadful specimens.
I will speak to one of the masters at the Aquarium Society meeting about who to get Discus from. There isn't really any emergency since I won't be getting them soon. But I like to hope and plan
And start knowing when certain colors will be available! Just in case I find the right tank...
Picked up a couple Amano shrimp one looks slightly bluish and the other a tint of yellow.
A monster sized Astrea Snail and a small one. Snail race to eat algae!!! hahaha.
Then a rather common colored white star center with cream to tannish with a hint of green Caribbean Rock Flower Anemone for $8 from one store.
The fairly nice colored one and a kinda plain one at the lfs
were going for 69.99. I wonder why they have had them for 3-4 months, YIKES!!!
I asked the other store to order a few and I would get 2 if they were still 14.99 or less, then called the other lfs
to see if they got any in and they didn't maybe Monday. Their's are 20. each. Just hoping to get a nice color somewhere along the line. See how hard I work for a great deal? A far away lfs
was selling theirs too for 69 or 79. They also were disappointed they didn't sell very fast. They said at one time they had 200 last fall. For that price I wouldn't have been a buyer either. I digress. -
Working hard to get some more color in the tank from something that isn't going to sting or poison me. Yay!
Sad news now..., have lost the last 2 of the 3 Killis in the 2 days, first one disappeared. The water is good and the snails are doing fine and the tiny baby Angel SEEMS fine. Didn't eat, then next day dead. QT is a good thing. Sad though.
