Not completely sure but I think it was the near capacity stocking combined with new ammonia producing food, melting plants and then stirring up all the mulm in the substrate kind of crash. Perfect storm. Didn't have anyone to help me with the emergency and was working so rushed didn't think to save a water sample to check on PH, but there were 2 cuttlebones one nearly worn out and one new one from a few weeks ago. So doubt it was pH.
All my water changes have been stressful for the fish, I think the water company changed over to the other water supply. Maybe chemicals from flushing the system or just different water. One more reason to get my RO
hooked up I guess.
All fish in the bucket from the 12G have fared well no deaths. All lively and ok.
Just rescaped a quick new layout for the 12G, no planning really just grabbed some of what I had. The only thing was to make a lot less places for the CPD to hide. Try to not bring any MTS back in.
Tank was clear this morning, but then I stirred it all back up again moving around the substrate. Changes a few gallons of water out acclimated the 2 waters and threw them in. Nobody upside down yet!
This is stressing me out! I counted 13 CPD's so I didn't lose others, I didn't know about.
So 6 Habrosus,
3 Glass Cats, still looking for some more I can afford, and I don't have space atm for QT. I really really like these guys and would like a large number in my 72G if I get around to changing up my Angel pair to another tank.
1 fat female Oto
The Glass Cats will be moving out when I can they weren't planned for the tank, but came from my DD's tank when she closed it down.
So after some considering changing my stocking in the tanks I just left it because the Glass Cats need 10 or larger and the other Option is the 72G but has the mean Paired Angel male. I don't want any more trouble.
As for the young Angel in that tank it is keeping a low profile and is small still and can fit and hide in space big hand sized poppa can't. So for another week or 2 till I switch things around, everything stays like it is.
Thinking of ordering from either msjinxd or Wetspot, if the local guy doesn't have what I am looking for next month or the month after. Our CAS auction is in October so maybe some stuff then.
Also trying to train the Betta to deal with the Edge tank and it really isn't working yet - Minimal air space in top. I heard of one person using a feeding ring, maybe will try that next.
Never a dull moment with fish!
Thanks for listening
