Well here is a thread with some of my issues...
FW - SW and too many tanks quandary!?!
I spent a long time evaluating what to pack and how to load and pack it for the 45 minute journey with the two tanks - 6.6G Edge, no problem easy peasy, and then the 46G euro bowfront with all the excess fish stuff one tends to collect, the filter and two lights, etc. Had to send 3 fish to be rehomed due to incompatibility with my tank.
So when I got the tank and all the stuff packed into the vehicle, my DD said what about the stand? OOPS So we got that up onto the roof rack and strapped down with extra long dog leashes lol.
The huge Rafael Spotted Cat went back to the tank he was in previously, my 72G.
The Upside Down Cat Fish 4 inches long, might have a compatibility issue if it wants to eat my Cardinals, though it lived with a few tetras, ...in my tank goes
a Neon and
3 Glowlight Tetras and a
Cory fish which was supposed to have been a Salt and Pepper and looks similar except 2x as big.
The Gold or Red Cap Angel is returning home. Unsure if male or female, likely a female - was the youngest and left over of the 5 I had - other 4 paired.
The Opaline is a pretty fish and I used to have one which was around 8 years old and passed away. Possible issue would be the other Flame Gourami and my older Pearl. My Pearl and previous Opaline got along fine; each just gave the other space and everything was lovely.
My Silver Stripe female Angel is really causing trouble in the tank. I am probably going to see if I can take her out.
I have a different young female which I found in March in a bag of plants as a dime ized baby I purchased at the Aquarium Society Fish Auction. She has been growing out in a different tank. I am considering adding them together and seeing who is who, in the 35G SW
(might turn into a FW
instead for a little while till they get sorted out)
Then there would be 2 misc Angelfish unknown sex and 1 crazy maniac Female Angel. Thinking to put a divider in the tank.
Then there is a White Crayfish which could go into the Angel tank. He has lived in my 72G tank for 1.5 years and my DD for almost a year and doesn't seem to bother the other tank mates. Though I have Cories now I didn't before, she had the one Cory which someone gave to her to adopt and she was fine - fast moving and healthy.
Well my big decision is SW
for the new tank I think, then FW
for the old SW
tank if that is the route I take or ???
The whole thing wouldn't be as much an issue if 2 of the pretty Angels I have were males instead of females. The big silver Angel female has made wounds on 2 fish in the big tank and she need to come out of there asap.
So now what, lol
Plan on moving the Tangerine Tiger and Blue Velvet Shrimp into the 6.6G Edge to make room for the 46G, then using the 15G they were in for the Red cap Angel for a couple days with the crayfish. Tonight they get to stay in the buckets with air bubblers (Cray has his own).
Put the 3 Glass Cats in my 12G (looking into getting 2-3 more) Then with them to a larger tank. (can't put them in the 72G with the crazy Silver Stripe Angel on the attack) Very interesting fish. Today in the sunlight in the tank they were like a prism rainbow, iridescent, with all the rainbow colors in their skirt area. It was stunning. But they are going into a lowish light tank with a ton of plants. Not too likely to see that light show again.
All fish and the cray were acclimated over an hour with the new and old water.
Feel free to check out my other thread and add in any ideas you might have.
Probably tomorrow will be switch over the SW
to the 46G, ugh I am tired.
Previously ordered Clove oil to Euthanize a Marble Koi Angelfish. He isn't better and it has been a couple months. So sad. If it came in, then will do that too tomorrow.
