I didn't get to mess with tanks too much today. I did have the (dis)pleasure of rounding up a bunch of plants/stems floating in my 55g and replant them thanks to my wife's %*#^# severum. For sanity purposes that fish might be traded for another discus.

The nano reef still making progress cycling. Did a top off. Can't wait for it to finish!
Attachment 271702

I spread out a bit of the leftover Bacopa to my other tanks just as a test... Yes even the jack Dempsey tank.
Attachment 271703

Also got some of the fish for the tank I'm building for a client temporary home for 2 more weeks till I can set up the tank. I wasn't assured stock so I did so preplanning and will get the rest sooner to the build date.

Sterbai cories I'm in love. I wish I had some of these now but it's for their tank.

Hey, I have the same tank (4th one down ). It's a wonderful space saver but gotta get creative because its short, wide, and tall.

I spent the afternoon trying to rig up some sort of filter for koi in a pool with nothing but air stones in there.

Trash can filter!!! Sounds trashy but can work really well!

Mebbid and Cool, "wow" on the plants!

Well I was hoping for more to show but not getting very good pics at the moment So in the interest of time I have a couple sideways ones - sorry.

Ok so here goes.

Upgraded the 15G column SW to the JEBO new r375 tank. I was going to get a 46G black bowfront then DD decided she loved it again, lol so just decided to use what I have for the moment.

From this - Seaweed was right about not being able to get the glass clean so I got the Urchin!


and this plus a 5G bucket from the 12G


to this after a few hours of adding the sand



to this the next day



it cleared up even more and now it perfect looking clear

the Urchin and at the bottom the Caribbean Rock Flower Anemone



My big Astrea Snail munching on a chunk of dried sheet seaweed like Nori.



The pretty pic of the RFA all frilly and showing off


Then RFA trying to move...caught in the act!

Thought it was so interesting how big it got its foot.



I moved one rock and it settled down



Then it moved behind the rocks in the center, lol, so i can barely see it! No pic for that since you really can't see much.

Peaking out from the tunnel


An odd thing that most my shrimp in my 6.6G are gone. Just not there. BUT my Chilis and Phoenix Rasboras (Boraras Brigittae and Merah) are in the mood for love. All over the tank all day long! Only have 5 atm.

Look (sideways) at how red he is!


Here (sideways) both males. One is Chili and the other Phoenix. Have heard they can cross, originally they were supposed to all be Brigittae. Who knows right now, we will see if anything comes of it all.


Also have new eggs from the good pair of angels. If they make it tomorrow the next day maybe wigglers or they will be eaten by the tank mates.

Fed my Vinegar Eels 2 pieces of apple. Still trying to comprehend these guys.

Hoping to harvest some in a couple days.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is the BIG day. (Technically today)

Picking up 30 Tangerine Tigers shrimp and babies. I am so blessed to get the deal I am getting for them!!!

THEN if that wasn't the most exciting thing for the day...going to check out a couple far away lfs that I haven't been to yet.

THEN as if that wasn't the other most exciting thing...I am picking up a bunch of fish. 13 Celestial Pearl Danios/CPD aka Galaxy Rasboras AND 6 Salt and Pepper Cories!!! A couple Dwarf Gourami and an Oto from a tank close down. Plus some assorted and misc supplies - Yippee, I am happy (and out of fish fun funds) So very fortunate for this amazing day and opportunities!!!!!!!!! In the couple days after I will be picking up a Rock Flower Anemone from the lfs which was ordered and finally came in. It will be a present for Mothers Day Overall pretty crazy great week.

Told you there would be a lot to report. Longest post nomination I think...

LFS gave me 4 different food samples to try on my shovelnose since he still hasn't eaten anything except a earthworm in a week. Hikari massivore, cobalt cichlid pellets, some sort of shrimp pellets, and frozen blood worms. Hope I can get him to eat

Give it time hopefully he will come around. Bichir can go on a hunger strike for up to a week. I know Omega One makes a carnivore mix you could try that.

Did a WC in the Endlers tank and started pulled out 22 fry. The jar project is next to that tank and I noticed a lot of activity, the scuds are definitely multiplying so I'll feed some to the scarlet badis tomorrow.



Quite a few MTS in almost all the tanks. Going to set up some sort of jar/bowl project for them.

And another batch of shrimplets, still too tiny to tell if they're tigers or carbon rili though.
