😴 What?
Nice looking fry. Btw lots of endlers at the auction. I'm so gauche; they look like guppies I had when I was a child.
Tomorrow I will have time to do a midweek water change. BBA starting appear in droves so I need to step up with the water changes.

Guppies? No way



Just took that pic yesterday, they're so darn fast it's difficult to get good photos. Really like that I'm starting to see some blues on them

Yup those are what we also called Guppies, also with real Guppies. My Grandpa had a Huge water trough packed with these guys (hundreds) and it was darn pretty.

Those are pretty Theresa - looking good. The sand you mentioned somewhere, CaribSea SuperNaturals is awesome sand. I enjoyed having it in my tank, mine was basically white (too white). That middle color is very nice.

I talked to a few of my fish and told them we were gonna be mixing it up a bit here and there. Some of them were excited, though a few were very apprehensive about the changes. My 3 Phoenix Rasboras and one remaining Chili said they were getting bored and welcomed the idea of new tankmates. The Chili said he hoped in his old age he would live long enough to see the new friends arrive. I told him the auction is coming up very soon and I was hopeful.

In other news, my filter in the newer 6.6G Edge stopped working after I changed the power strip, I was in a hurry and plopped in an airstone which in only a few days waterlogged the LED with it's pops of liquid from the surface of the water :/ and it is a big, big mess, like a swimming pond in the light bar.

This makes water damage in 2 now, both with the LEDs, not impressed with the water seal or lack there of, around the front of the light bar. Kinda mad about it. I am the second owner so I don't have the paperwork or I would be calling Fluval again. They sent me a replacement light (on the first Edge tank we got) on the one we actually did buy new (halogen) earlier model pretty long ago now, to replace with LED as they didn't make the halogen light bars any more.

Water change yesterday and finally picked that stick up and put it in the corner. Not sure why my swords have barely grown though, they've been in there for a couple months now.
