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.
