It's been a busy tank day. I moved some juvies and pairs of Angels around, cut and weighted some cabomba and listed a few things. Looking forward to getting some type of PB angels here soon, going to use profits from sales to finance them. Wife would have a cow if I paid for more fish out of our checking account, lol

Brought home this baby monster. The LFS owner has more or less rubbed it in my face that it was waiting to go home with me, and for the first time I couldn't tell her no. Pseudoplatystoma Tigrinum, aka Tiger Sorubim or Tiger Shovelnose. Checking in at what we will call 3 ⅓"

It probably won't. LFS owner said it kept getting the crap beat out of it in any tank she tried. It was with feeder guppies and ghost shrimp when I got there today. I'll grow it out to 8-10" in my 55 and trade it back in unless we find a house before then and I get me a big tank. They have a 300g setup at the store that they keep a few monster size fish in (personal collection) and said they would gladly buy it back and add it when I couldn't accommodate the size any longer.

Moved the project tank to the back room with my two 10s. I just wasn't happy with how much algae it was getting. Kind of miss having it on my desk.

Wc in the 16g. I think it's finally starting to look like a real planted tank now:



Also did a wc in the spare plant tank:



Got some new red rili, small but very nice color and settling in nicely.

Sold yet another bag of dwarf water lettuce....

The Evolve was originally supposed to be for the spouse's work office but since it never left the house I'm browsing Amazon for tank kit, 5g or under. This one will be for a betta and is definitely his

There is reasons that I can't seem to think of why tanks smell... But I'm biased to sand I love it way more than gravel

Smelly tanks are usually a result of something decomposing in there. Dead fish, dead plant matter, etc.

Be sure to check around the rim or on the hood of the tank as well. Pellets and flake food will often get stuck there and decompose.
