Currently changing my 5 gallon from mixed green and natural gravel to sand. Ugh. First I had to net probably a dozen ghost shrimp, and now I am sifting through the gravel to pull out some of the green gravel and the larger stones. I'm going to mix these in with the sand. The sand is black diamond blasting grit, and it is rinsing in my tub. This is going to take a while, my back is killing me from work but I'm going to power through and get this done. I want it nice and ready for its new inhabitants that are coming this week, some baby marbled crayfish. I'm keeping them in the 5 gallon until they grow a little, then they are going in the 58. Tomorrow I get to clean the 58 to get ready for the angels and bn plecos that are coming this week. I get three days off in a row, though, so I get to work on my tanks quite a bit this week.

Edit: I sorted out all those green stones and didn't even use them. I decided to pick up a small bag of red gravel instead. Maybe. I like how it looks. I also put some plastic mesh on the holes on the back to keep future crayfish from escaping like my last one. I also hooked a better air pump up to the sponge filter and added an airstone, because the pump has two outlets. All in all a productive night, even if it took forever. I'll post pictures when the sand settles.

Edit: didn't mean to double post, that was supposed to be an edit...

Went out and got a slew of plastic plants in hopes of saving some fry from my afras. $50 later my fish really seem to like it. My tank needed some color anyway

Been watching my mickey mouse moon a lot lately. She's looking pretty fat and looks to be squareing off hopeing to have some fry within a week or so. Fingers crossed! Although I think my pictus cat and red tailed black shark my have other plans for them.
