Have been learning about that and trying to figure out how I could apply it to my situation.

LOL trying to figure out how to keep my Betta and shrimp in an RV

I asked one person to get the SW and filtered ro/di water because they would be about 2 miles from a SW lfs and that person couldn't be bothered, and the other was "really busy" so no one would stop. If that happens when I AM here I imagine it would never get done if I wasn't here.

So good reminder EnrgizerBunny about the drip - kinda had that in a plan later after the next year of going here and there for a Discus tank. It would need to be a never fail type thing. My local fish society Guru has a nice overflow tube setup so that the tank would never get too full. It is pressurized on the water and when it gets to a certain level the water pushes out. I am pretty dense on this sort of thing so it takes me awhile to get the concept and function understood.

I think if I rehome 2 Angelfish and my DD takes the Pearl Gourami (from the 72G) I might be able to add my CPD and dwarf Cories to the 72G with one angelfish and a Dwarf Gourami and Cardinals and Green Neons, BN Plecos and some Bronze Cories.

That would free up the 12G Edge for further maneuvering. As my DH thinks, why can't all the fish just go into one tank...

Getting the pwc done...

I picked some remaining dead plants out of my filter head, and gazed wistfully at the gravel substrate which I'll be replacing next week. Not looking forward to it.

Trying to finish up things for the week long trip. Water changes and setting up foods for the fish. Giving them some defrosted frozen foods from Mysis to BBS and regular brine shrimp, and a squirt of oyster feast to the SW tank as well.
