When one door closes another one opens.
Today was this great - for me...
I got double the wonderousness today! Got to spend the afternoon with 2 daughters and got tank stuff from 2 hobbyists who shut down tanks and got to see 2 rainbows at the same time. Got to drive home in at least 2 times the normal traffic because of construction and probably took 2 hours!
Traveled the long road for Tangerine Tiger shrimp and the CPD's I have been gushing about! and 6 of the cutest little Cories you ever saw and a couple of gorgeous Dwarf Gouramis (one going to DD's home tank) All hanging out in QT right now. No pics for them as they needed lights off to stay calm and get used to the new tank.
So instead there are a couple of pics, click the link to see the album of all the rest of the pics or go to the Tangerine Tiger thread that's going now to see all the new TT pics.

Was truly blessed with goodies today! Beautiful plants and fish and shrimp!!! Tons of great rocks, equipment, foods, testing stuff, chemicals and just about everything a person could need. I paid money for both caches but was given so much more in all the extras. The kindness from these people was awesome and is appreciated.
This will be a fun awesome excuse to organize the fish shelves and get my supplies separated and then thinned out as to what is needed vs. too much extra. I see a raok or 2 coming ahead in the next couple weeks!!!
Fed the shrimp a pinch of fancy new to me shrimp food - crazy variety of awesome specialty foods for shrimp.
Then a bunch of Hikari, my favorite staple food for all the fish!! Many different kinds. Since I feed about 7 different foods to the fish and inverts every day this is fabulous. This will provide even more variety. You gotta love variety for a captive fish!
This is the second time in a month I have been blessed greatly.
This morning cleaned out the filter on the 35G SW
added a few more handfuls of sand I forgot about in the bucket, to the tank, making it cloudy again but tonight it was clear.
Added in a bunch of snails too.
Did 1/3 pwc
on the QT to add fresh water and to make room for the water from the fishes tank they came from. Acclimated and put into tank.
Thinking of possibly adding my 12G SW
Rimless Garden inhabitants to the 35G and then using the 12G Rimless Garden to be a planted nano fish and shrimp tank...just thinking about it.
Fed the 72G Spirulina flake.
