So this is over the last couple of days:

I took the guppies out of my 20 long tank and gave them to a friend who keeps guppies in my local aquarium club because I wanted something a little different. This left just cherry shrimp in the tank and because I didn't need all of the plants for coverage I was able to take a few out and also give those to someone else in my club who is just starting out with plants.


I went to my LFS today to get pygmy coreys but they only had one left so I decided to wait for them to get more in (they always have them usually a ton except this week since that's what I went there for) so today instead I bought a pair of dwarf anchor catfish. Sooo cute! They're still acclimating but later I will get some pics

Got two platies for my fiance for mothers day! It's literally all she wanted, lol. Unfortunately I wasn't paying enough attention and one of them has developed ich while the other has fin rot... Good thing we put them in the 10 gallon guppy/quarantine tank. Salt treatment has begun!

Finals; Drowning in finals. Then I had tons of paperwork to fill out for my internship, and applying for apartments so that my fiance and I can move in together, and then I was so dead tired after all of it that I spent the last few days off the grid spending time with my fiance who I haven't seen in almost a month. (Also with her fish tanks with the fish I haven't seen in a month)

It's just good we caught the issue early, and that we wisely put them in the 10 gallon as a quarantine. Also that both ich and fin rot can be treated with salt.

Well I got 2 new fish today!

First one is a test subject for the JD tank. A male convict cichlid. JD is still the dominant one so far.

Traded and got a thin "rocky" 3D background 48x20" for the 72G to try out, and spare heater and little Beamswork 12" light in exchange for Anubias nanas, moss and Java Fern chunks and Rotallas.

Got several Vallisneria americana Eel Grass the very big one, like I used to have from a hobbyist in town. I am so excited, I havent found it anywhere in 1.5 years!!! Offered to help with a tank transfer (he's having surgery soon and is looking to move 3 tanks into a 72G Bowfront), for more plants and a few fish. Going to give him a couple lonely fish in my tank, as they don't have schools anymore and I am not restocking them any time soon.

He has some Russian Red Guppies - considering possibly to try them in SW. Later I will trade him some for some shrimp. Fun to find new trading source.

Later after going to my lfs and finding them closed!!!, argh, went to the thrift store next door and found a good condition Acrylic hex stand /pedestal which will fit at an angle flat side to flat side, my 12G Edge, the 5G fluval Chi Betta tank or the 15G column tank which ever I decide on (lol, so many options). For $7.50!!! Now trying to make up my mind which one and where! I am posting a new ? in DIY for a top for my rimless 12G so my fish won't jump out, if i set that up as a FW with CPD's!
