Spent the whole day yesterday working on breaking down the 15G Column tank wth the TT and BV shrimp.

Here is more details about the shrimp adventure last page probably - is on post number 23
"Chocolate" Cherry RCS with pics

I traded a few shrimp for a Clown Loach from a local hobbyist. He is about 4". In QT atm, and going into the 72G (which will be working on getting magically turned into a ~125G - 250G Bowfront sometime this year when the used tank finding faeries come up with a budget friendly option - if the faeries don't make it happen I know a shoal of about 12 who wouldn't mind more friends.) Planning on picking up 2 friends for him to hang out in QT.

Finally made some decisions about my shrimp keeping and breeding and tanks - details also in that thread above.

So the TT shrimp will get to move into the Mr Aqua Rimless 11.7G, for now by themselves, will set that tank up in the morning.

They will end up being housed with some nice Blue Diamond Shrimp which I will need to find yet. And I will have them as a breeding tank - shrimp only.

Been studying which kinds of fish to add. Still. lol I'm narrowing it down though!

How big is your aquarium? This sounds like a lot of fish.

Canister filter and diffuser came today! Canister is a bit bulkier than I wanted but that's ok. First time with a canister for me. Just hope I can hide all the equipment in and out of the tank. All I need to get now are ferts substrate, timers and a regulator with a Silenoid and bubble counter, but in already getting an Aquatek one. I am truly converting to the high tech side, as my wallet grows emptier and emptier.

Yep I cycled it for about 3 months before adding a single betta for several more months. So from May to August it was cycling and late August I was given a betta and I decided to put him in the tank and he was the only fish in there from Late August to mid December
