Too small for a decent pic. Fish present are gold tetras, ember tetras, CPDs, and otocinclus. Gold tetras are upwards of 8 years old and I have not noticed any of them being "full" lately. Either the embers or CPDs. Guessing it is the former because I have seen some pudgy ones (thought they were just hearty eaters). Time will tell if I'm right.
That's exciting! Before I got the plant guard I was always netting fry with the duckweed. If I want to catch them no but accidentally of course

Exciting 2x. Found another one this afternoon. I'm thinking they are CPD fry. Free swimming, active, slight belly bulge. Hard to say how old they are.

My GBRS decided their eggs looked tasty and munched them. Kinda happy they did because I wanted to add fish to the tank but didn't want to risk harassment on the new fish

Got some cool floaters (amazon frogbit, red root floaters and what I think is dwarf water lettuce), threw those in my tanks and 2 pieces of cholla wood for the pleco! He's already munching on it, even the piece that is still floating. I guess he was hungry.

The last few days have reconfirmed the Metalic Blue Guppies at least most definitely the female has internal parasites. I need to pick up the medicated food from a friend who ordered it with her order to save shipping. Very sad about it and hope the food will be found to be tasty and be eaten by the fish.

Thinking I might feed the deworming food to the SAE too before putting them into the big tank after QT. They are doing fine though don't see their poo so can't say for sure :/ Those little guys have eaten almost all the Cladophora algae I put in there for them. I have a little more outside in bucket with some substrate to add into the tank for them to nom on.

Got lost looking at Aquascaping contest winner tanks and lost track of time for awhile. Reading judges comments was helpful to (start to) understand the good and bad of techniques and presentation.

Filled evaporation. Watched fish for a little bit.
