The next day we were out running errands and she asked if we could stop by the LFS again so she could buy the BP there that "was calling her name". It's hard to say no sometimes! So here is her two BP's, Perry and Polly. Polly has lost all her dark spots and is starting to get some red/orange in the gill area and base of her tail. Very entertaining fish to watch.

I also brought home another mystery snail that day. Never seen one with a shell like this!

Me too. For the past month, every time we go to any of the LFS she walks to the SW section first like a little kid seeing it for the first time haha. I think a 55g FOWLR may happen once we get moved

Ooooo! Go for it you won't regret it. Stick with small fish so you can have inverts and they won't get eaten. I never loved inverts as much as I do now since I have cleaner shrimp that will play with my hand and crawl all over it.

I COMPLETELY redid my 10g puffer tank. Changed the substrate for brand new with no root tabs as of yet. Puffer is acclimating.

Gill is a Morish Idol. These fish primarily eat sponges so they are hard to feed, they also need lots of swimming space because of their size.

It looks great Caleb. I'm sure the puffer will love it.

I haven't done much lately. The only major thing was losing my male German blue ram because of a tumor in his head.
