Now I have 3 fish in my QT/feeder tank (it's divided) from how these guys looked yesterday I didn't think they would make it the night well here they are this morning swimming together as happy as can be,
I intend on keeping them in QT at-least 2 weeks to be sure they are clean of any disease/parasites ,


there lucky I had a few extra pieces of live rock in the QT that I'm growing out some macro on ,
The coral beauty's face looks awesome. And I'm glad your wife found and rescued them. That's not even betta size, sheesh some people

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Changed the substrate in my small tank, the black was cool but I wanted to lighten the tank up a little bit, I also dumped all the plants with exception of the Anubias and the mossClick image for larger version

I moved a 20g and a 10g tank from my house into my new apartment. I took some of the more sensitive fish with me because my tanks are all doing awful. I lost almost all my plants from my 40g tank and my reef has become an algae farm.

I also picked up a pair of high fin electric blue gbrs and a pair of chocolate lyretail killifish. Hopefully by january I will be breeding both of them.

Yesterday got to pick up my brand new 12G Edge tank, so happy. Will be working on getting the new stuff figured out as in substrate and stocking, etc. I was given 4 baby Double Black Angelfish dime to nickel body size, and info that I can return any say females and trade them in for a few more babies if I would like, to just keep the fun of having them and growing them up!

The original 12G Edge tank is going to a new home when ever I get it to that point. One must come down before the next one comes up and moving the stock and decisions about which group of fish will need to go where.

Decided to send the inhabitants of the 5G SW to live with a wonderful hobbyist who took the Saddleback Clowns and then I will have one less item to divert my attention and help me keep focus.

Still need to empty the 35G SW all the way. It still has a few rocks and all the sand and a few hermits and snails.

Overall, happy to be getting things pared down. May also have a new home for the 35G tank and stand.

So far the Rainbow fish seem better no ill looking ones at present. The AC110 filter is running again. Still can't believe how much Elodea was in the impeller. I put the baby Angels in there (the QT).

Found a problem in my 15G column tank, that a huge Mystery snail died and must have messed with the parameters and don't see but a few little baby shrimp in there now where there WERE a bunch. There are a a handful of berried mommas presently. Deciding no more grown up Mystery snails in small and nano shrimp tanks. I should have known better. As soon as they get to be an inch I will need to move them to a large tank. Once that big I wonder that they don't get enough to eat in the shrimp tanks.

Wasn't tired and decided to organize underneath my 75.


Hung the power strips off the back of the stand to clear up next to the sump

Also hung some of my test kits. Magnesium test is going above the calcium test.
