Getting pulled to the filter means they're pretty much done in my experience. Perhaps he'll recover, but he's in rough shape if that little flow is bothering him.

Yep, he's still alive this morning which is good.

My fish dug their own cave under the new driftwood. The shark and the pleco hang out in there. The sand has completely expanded their hiding place inventory.

Got an amano shrimp for the 29, plant x (identity reviled in my thread), frozen mysis shrimp for the 75, an assassin snail for my breeding project, and a piece of spiderwood for my 20L.
LFS I got everything from is looking for new hires, and I will need a job when I go back to school so...

Nice, I agree vinegar is amazing even though I scribed my brothers old turtle tank for half and hour and there is a tiny bit of water mark left. Here are before and after pics.

My Bolivian ram is hardly breathing and is stuck to the filter. The German blue hasn't left his side for hours.
