Buried the Koi Angel male yesterday. He was one of my top 3 favorite fish. He had a sweet personality and I will miss seeing his huge presence and gorgeous color in the tank. It is just not the same right now.

Moving on.

Moved the smaller Angel to the 72G from the temporary bucket.

Pwc on 15G Column shrimp tank took out a dozen MTS because my Assassin snail had eaten all his.

Cleaned out the 3G Betta including the snail poop in the sand and added in the dozen MTS for him to snack on. There were probably 30+ MTS shells in there I finally took out, it was lookin junky.

I loath the AquaFarm tank but still haven't been able to connect schedules to pick up the 2 new Chi tanks my daughter's friend has waiting for me. Maybe next week.

Trying out the Betta in the tank with the Guppy pair and baby Melini Cories. Added some additional plants for cover. Female Gup looks like she is going to have a heart attack from the stress of the Betta even though he hasn't done anything yet other than really check them out.

So might just move him back, he is so beautiful and the AF tank is so dingy to see through I can't appreciate him at all and he is so interactive with me I hate not seeing him well. And he looks stunning in the Edge 6.6G tank. Darn pics keep loading sideways even though I take them straight up and down and can see them like they are supposed to be..apologies, I don't have time to fix it now. He has more yellow in the folds of his anal fin too.


Pwc on the Betta 2G bowl too and the other 6.6G Edge and 50%pwc on the 12G Edge and am gonna try running some carbon and clean the filter out gently too. That tank not being crystal clear is driving me crazy. It is usually got tannins but clear.

Installed an internal filter into my 60 for increased surface agitation. Moved some corals round in the 20

Did a TON of research on the red eyed red tailed puffer, trying to get my hands on 1 or 2 for the 16 once the GBR is moved out. He's sick right now pretty bad and I don't think he can hold on for much longer. Anyone have any info about these puffers? I'd really appreciate any kind of info!

Oh and beautiful betta! I'm actually looking for one as well.

Thank you. This week I am very frustrated with my tanks and my time to which I feel it will be good to condense some things/eliminate some things.

My Urchin looks like he is on his way out too. Sad and depressing. Tbh I am having a moment here in fish land. It will pass and we will have a better day soon.

The 12G Bolbitis is damaged and some leaves are greyish. So I guess they will get a trim. My Oto in that tank is getting fat I think from the extra algae. (hopefully that is all it is) He is active and swimming more and out in the open more too since I took out a bunch of extra plants. As are the CPD's. I am considering moving them into a tank with just some Vals in the back so they are out more and I can see them.

Also still deciding about what to do with the SW tank. The pair of Saddleback Clowns are looking quite beautiful now that they are maturing and gaining some of the russet maroon color. They love to hide in the rocks though so don't always see them.

Lots of decisions to be made on the tanks and stocking changes. I still have a black 46G bowfront sitting on my patio, unused (and the stand sitting in the side of my LR). Gotta move the 35G SW tank to put it in that spot.

Oh, how I wish I had a week to just take care of the fish tank shuffle.
