Awesome!

Fretted over my own MTS and how to reduce (still trying to work out the fish combos I want and what I have with which tanks... again, rather - still)

Been (trying to) reduce over feeding to the tanks, especially to the 72G.

Fed frozen foods of all types last night, Plankton, Brine shrimp, Tubifex Worms and Krill. Some of the little fish were scared of them :/ Today the MTS and RH are eating well. Just a tiny amount of food tonight.

Got emails that I might be getting 3 used tanks in the next few months, an Eclipse 6, 10g, and 20h. Have absolutely no idea where I'd put even one of them...

And busy with the tanks here at home. Newest betta girl went in the 16g a couple days ago. No problems there so I took down the temp 2.5g.

The new 10g is now in the living room just holding plants while all of this is going on. I'm considering this for substrate, think think it's kind of a middle ground between Tahitian moon sand and white. I ordered a double sponge filter to run for a while in conjunction with an established sponge filter from one of the nano tanks.

Rocks, red ludwigia, and hygro came out of the Spec. Since it's moving to my desk so I decided not to change the substrate. There's a nice cluster of dwarf sag that I'll most likely leave in, four pieces of cholla wood, najas grass. The two remaining pygmy cories went into the Evolve; sold the micro rasboras.

So the Spec will be shrimp only. The big blue betta girl will move into the Evolve after the shrimp are out. The dwarf amber barbs made their switch. I started moving red rili out but discovered a lot of shrimplets. Forgot how incredibly tiny they are and at that point it was late so I'll be dealing with them later today.

The is the blue girl, largest female I've ever owned both in physical size and personality. Will be nice to have her in a tank on my desk



And I remembered to do ferts in the other tanks

Water change on the 55 gallon. Added another sword this one rosette variety.

Did a final filter cleaning on the pond and removed the UV bulb before a frost comes. Repotted water Lily's and irises. Finished the bog area so next season can add more emerged plants.
Largest goldfish is now about a foot long. Deer Net has stopped any Herron losses so still have entire stock for 3 years going now .

Did a wc and cleaned the filter media on my 20L yesterday. Thee new corys made it apparent how dirty the sand was. They kick up a lot of junk while digging...

Little dudes are hard to get good pictures of! Actually the whole tank is since it's all nanos. However I am super impressed with their colors already!

Glad you finally got them, I've been so happy with the color and the fact that they aren't shy. Is that Turkish hazel on the left in the first pic?

Yes!! It is Turkish hazel. When I first put it in the shrimp swarmed it. They really seemed to like it. Definitely worth it imo

I got some a few weeks ago, definitely a nice, different look from cholla and cones. Took a long time to sink though.

Y'all with your nano fish and fancy shrimp...

13+ hour work day 😩 Hoping to get to the tank before lights out.

This from fancy plant guy Get some sleep!

Caught four Endlers fry. They're growing so much more quickly now that they're in the net instead of general population.

Bought a dual sponge filter for the new 10g, currently have it running in the 16g. Going to order sand tonight for the 10g as well.
