Found one of the new kuhli loaches dead this morning, only 1 of 3 remaining in quarantine now. 1 died in transit yesterday and the other overnight.

Very sorry to hear that they were probably not healthy to begin with.

Nice! I keep kicking around the idea of adding co2, but that's beyond my level of expertise at this time.

Started on the sorting and cleaning of the supplies drawers.

Arranged to buy a new Chi tank. DD is getting one of them for my Mother's day gift and the other one is $15, both are NIB. Going to put my Betta friend in it, I don't like the Aqua Farm (back to the roots)Tank because it is white (clear front and back) on the sides and I can't see my fish very well. I have my 1st Chi rimless and no pump on top just the glass tank with the SW Macro Algae and I really like it. Was excited to get this for the Betta. And a spare.

Cleaned 30% pwc on the 16G QT Moved the 2 Dwarf Gouramis to different tanks because the one was constantly harrassing the other (like they will do as they mature).

My filter is definitly got a little leak and didn't get to that yet, stuffed in another clump of paper towels.

Found a new home for the 16G tank in a week. So preparing things to move the inhabitants to the new tank, either the 15G column or the 12G rimless.

Also making some plans to find a home for the 1 or 2 Breeding pairs of Angels. Maybe just one pair still considering options.

This is the middle time of the switch all the tanks around and it is not hard but IS a lot to do.

Trading tomorrow for a 3D background (maybe for the 72G tank), a heater (spare) and a nano LED light for the Chi tank. For plants and fish food.

My light on the 12G SW rimless was dipping into the water yesterday at an angle. Not happy with that development!!! Fluval Sea Nano Reef and Marine LED. Be warned... It wasn't coming unstuck just didn't like the angle of being mostly to the end of the adjustment. Trying to figure that out more tomorrow. Long work day today.

There is hundreds of DIY co2 videos on YouTube to choose from. It's not that hard.

Collected a couple of river rocks earlier and piled then safely on one end of my driftwood so could remove the others on the opposite end. Hid an airstone in it too..really struggling to make this tank look how I want

There really are. I am planning on making some diffusers for my planted tanks when I start setting them up. Also I ordered 15lb bag of flourite for my 10g and I ordered a 10oz container of shrimp pellets for my one spot domino catfish. Finally I am going to clean out both of my 10g tanks after homework.
