Magfloats are the reason I've sworn off bowfront tanks

Do you guys think that instead of having my 10 gallon a rapids tank I should save up and buy a 20 gallon long and turn that into a rapids tank?

Also, Yesterday morning I noticed my second betta dead. This was just before I left for school and I decided to leave it in the tank until I got back from school. When I got home I couldn't find him anywhere. I looked under all the rocks and decor. I now have a feeling that when I clean out the tank I will be sifting through the sand looking for pebbles and I will see one and reach out to grab it. The next thing I know I will be holding a rotting dead betta. So now I'm going to be extra careful when I clean out the tank.

Please do as much research as possible on the Hillstream Loaches. They would need a bigger tank than a 10G. Also the HL need a matured tank biofilm and aufwuchs or whatever the microscopic stuff is that they might eat to stay healthy.

The Reticulated ones are just amazing though

Wow, So much has been going on around here - every one seems in overdrive!

I finally got a hold of my breeder contact for the Tangerine Tiger shrimp and will be getting them within the next week - just setting up the right time to work for the schedules!!! So excited for the new inhabitants. 20-30 of all ages and some females berried too! The breeder is moving & shutting down the tank and I will be getting ALL the remaining shrimp! And some nice plants

Decided to tie my Fissidens starts to a rock and some to a Driftwood chunk. It is my first ones and have had it for over a month and was not too sure what to do with it.

In the morning I think I will be moving the SW 15G to the awaiting 35G.

Planning on trying to get the tanks moved around. Like I think I have been kinda planning for a year! I want them all but it really looks more like a mad scientists workshop than a living room. Every tank has a different stand, and a different look.

When I see it, I see the tank, inhabitants and stand as one set, but if I look at the whole room from fresh eyes, I might just be a crazy fish (and shrimp & inverts) lady. Yikes it seems too disconnected. Not as beautiful as each individual tank really is. hummmm.

Well now isn't that thought ruining my evening... not the crazy fish lady part but that the room really doesn't look good this way and isn't doing the tanks any favors. Time for a little redesign.

Thanks Shelly wish I could say the same lol. I'm never satisfied with this tank :p always moving something or trying to fix something.

P.S. My Amazon sword has exploded. I clipped a few of the larger leaves off that were not lookin very hot and I got like 15 mini leaves now
