Sorry, I had just finished testing the water and was looking at the color and I don't have the best vision so I asked another family member

Did a big pwc on my elephant nose tank, cleaned the filter and impeller everything was full of frogbit!
Pwc on my shrimp tank, cut back my plant's as they were growing wild!
Ordered a couple of bamboo shrimp last week and arrived dead 6 days later really unhappy.

Did some work with the new shrimp tank this morning. Here is a shot of the stuffed cholla: One of them I started stuffing the core but the other one I did not. I felt that there would be too much compaction leading to moss die off. So for both I simply stuffed the slots and trimmed off any excess. Quick rinse under the tap and back into the tank.
I also glued down some stray moss but forgot that a little glue goes a long way. Hopefully the white stuff will fade or be covered up by new growth:

Gonna be picking out some new fish today but will probably have to order what I want.

Heading to the lfs to get some foods; I never did put in an online order. Will look at fish while I am there. Doubt I will find appropriate selections. (such a doubter, I know)

If I run out of things to do I may run over to the not so very local lfs a nearly one hour drive away.

Looks promising Fresh.

Sorry to hear you got a bad delivery Shelly, are they gonna replace them?

Maybe check out the sand selection for the 12G Edge (which still sits in its box).

What fish are you looking for?
I got my money back pretty disheartened, the shrimp tank is seriously getting me down it's not been doing well.

I know that scenario all to well. My little 6.6 was doing awfully and had 2 shrimp left, and after a year probably 50 or more now (really can't count them in the little jungle.)

I am freshening up the tanks which will remain after tank edits. (only 4 will remain)

So looking at CRS or PRL (Pure Red Line) - won't be at the big box lfs this am

Someone else here mentioned Pencilfish which I had looked at about a year ago and now thinking as a dither fish they may help the CPD come out and swim more.

Lots of Cardinals for now - 18-24. For the 72G tank

Microdevario kubotai for my nano fish tank.

At the not so lfs they often have Sundadanio (just realized I have been spelling this wrong for years...) Axelrodi Blue or green neon though not usually when i go there to buy them but they usually have Pencilfish.

Actual dwarf Cories and Chili Rasboras. Considering Wetspot and Msjinxd - just have such an aversion to shipping costs on fish (no reason really lol).

Look at shipping costs more as paying to get exactly what you want. Not just whats available.

This is exactly what it is. Thank you for the vindication or simple confirmation of sense. TBH, I spent about a month wringing my hands about shipping on top of purchase. It's a relief to know I'm not being unreasonable.

It used to bug me too. Then i realized its just a small fee to get exactly what we want.

First water change after a MAJOR rescape in the 55. Lots of annoying bubbles from the powerhead/diy co2 combo but still happy ✌🏿️
