ordered new tops for the 90g there glass but they have a big vent in the center of them ,
it's nice to have glass tops again best part these breath they were a little pricey for the pair but I think they are worth it, ordered these out of a pet store in California that I came across there web site,

also ordered new sand again to replace sand in tank again , to rid white hair once and for all , I discovered the source that caused the out break , it was the charcoal I added in my sump , for now on chemi pure only ,

I gave away my guppies to a friend from my red cherry tank. Then I moved my 7 exclamation rasboras from the 5.5g with the blue pearl shrimp to the said 20long with my red cherry shrimp because I ordered some tangerine tiger shrimp to go in the 5.5 with the blue pearl.

Tomorrow I will be going to a LFS to get more of the rasboras to bump up the school since they have a lot of room

Did my weekly water change, and when I cleaned my skimmer I found a dead otocinclus I cleaned the skimmer earlier in the week too. Down from 5 otos to now 2 or maybe 3. Only had 2 KIA with 1 MIA presumably KIA

I have two Mystery snails in my 29g tank, one of which who is super active and the other whom has always been lazy in comparison. The lazy one stopped moving nearly 3 weeks ago and I was tempted to remove and toss it. Anyone who has ever had a snail die knows the SMELL that comes from it. This snail has no smell at all, and even though I never seen it open or close it's trap door I decided to leave it alone until the smell arrived. Fast forward almost 3 weeks later and look who is making a return! Click image for larger version

Walking Dead!!! Sometimes they just need some rest period. I had one which got some salt damage when it got into some somewhat concentrated stream of salt water getting poured in a tank I was treating for ick. After a few weeks it was good as new.

Ok, Fed every one, trying to pamper my Rock Flower Anemone with extra food, Oysterfeast... Because of this I will need to do an additional pwc in the morning. Everything else in the tank seems extra happy too.

Noticed that the CPD's are much more active without the light on. Considering some floating stems as the 12G Edge tank has a glass top with water touching it; floating plants won't work and still have the effect of the Edge cube of water. Hmmmm, think I will move the long piece of Elodea over there.

Trying to buy an extra 12G Fluval Edge from someone and I can't seem to get a return email from them. Hopefully they are just out camping in the mountains for the holiday. Long work day ahead..

I moved the three white clouds from my pond to a 10g so they will breed and the fry will have a chance.
