Did a 2G pwc in the 15G.
Can't wait for them!

Didn't do much today, really just watching. GBR is slowly recovering but always he's on the right track! Puffers are up to no good as usual. Saw an Amano molt in the 5.5 today, the shrimp are getting REALLY big!

The 16 is doing fine, plants are great, Eisenhower the BN telco is great, Steven the GBR is getting better and the shrimp re good too! Everyone happy and eating. I just love those perfect tank days!

Originally I used breather bags with a little water and O2. Someone shipped MS to me in the towel and they were fine. So started doing the same.

This was just too many I was too worried about snail poo. Didn't have big breather bags. Also breather bag doesn't work as well, I am guessing, in a sealed plastic padded flat rate usps mailer.

Oops forgot to turn on most of the tank lights today - all but the SW actually. Got them on now for a few hours.

Sounds like a good trade!

Yesterday I found Siamese Algae eaters at the local box store and got 4 (paid for 3 /$2. ea because one did a huge nose dive out of the tank and because the associate trying to catch them was having a difficult time and lost one of my fish I wanted to buy...got 2 Cobra Endlers /$1. ea to eat some mosquito larva in my plant bucket - there were 3 of them but one disappeared, she couldn't find it in the tank so I ended up with just the 2. Got a box of API Crystal Bio-Zorb filter pads /6pk for $6.50 - half price.

Got them home and set up my rimless 11.7G with a acrylic lid. Those crazy SAE are so skittish. They are barely able to settle down they're back and forth like lightning. I hope they survive the QT. Without jumping out. I gave them some algae from my algae bucket.

Today they have some color back. I am sure they will be much happier when they get to go to the 72G. I only need 2 but didn't want one to die off and need to go through a QT period again for one more. Would like them to be pals like my last pair. So now I have 4!!!

Filled some water from evap and fed all the fish.
