Cleaned out the 12G rimless Mr. Aqua QT tank today, moved the 1 Rainbow F to the other QT (46G), moved the Cories from this tank to the 6.6G Edge #2.....
After cleaning out the whole tank Edge 6.6G #2. Removed the tiny river rock substrate, plants and DW and Bolbitis to the very temporary AquaFarm with the Betta. DW is sticking in sideways and out the top.
Added the Garnet sand to the Edge 6.6 #2. Put in 2 pots of Micro Sword that has been unhappy in the QT probably due to lack of adequate lighting.
Since we are having freezing at night, I moved the plant and duckweed buckets from outside to a more protected location. Will consolidate 3 into one or maybe even none.
So Mr Aqua rimless 12G is sitting empty, did a quick wiping but needs a good cleaning.
Moved the 3 Black Emperor Tetras into the QT also. They are pretty stressed right now. Hoping they will be on the road to wellness so they can get into the 72G and hang out with some friends.
Will be having a discussion about future Discus keeping on Thursday. Interested in possible ideas from local keepers for the auto water changer and stocking numbers. Kinda have in mind what I want, just need some training from the experienced keeper/breeders, and thoughts on the bigger tank possibility. (shhh..... this is a secret from people living at my house....I want a 150G bowfront, it might take getting a 92G first though, just depends on my lucky day when I find it cheap - so it could be awhile.)
Back to the little tanks...
Thinking of possibly moving the Betta into the 12G Mr Aqua. There is an acrylic top on the tank so less worries for jumping out. Just couldn't seem to encourage the Betta to live in the cube like Edge tank without having the water level down for surface breathing and that kind of defeats the look of the Edge tank.
Having the CPD's in the 12G Edge is kinda a waste of space, they rarely swim in the top half of the tank, (never when they know I am watching them!!!) so thinking of putting them into the 6.6G. It will be a nightmare mess for the tank to catch them, it's just now starting to grow in, so maybe not.
Just hate almost seeing NOTHING in the tank, all fish which like to hide.
Pretty bad when the fish you see most is a single Oto. And 1 (out of 10-12) CPD usually like he is the only one in the tank...except for feeding time I see activity (but still hiding as much as possible) 6 cories and 3 Glass Cats.
Went ahead and combined both groups of 6 Melini Cory babies into one, making the group 12 now!!! Hope they are so happy.
