Started my 5g up yesterday. Doing a dry start with the HC Cuba for awhile. 2-3 other type of plants will come after flooding.

Can't wait to see what happens.

~~~~~~~

Last night I did emergency pwc on my original Chocolate Cherry shrimp tank. 2 gallons, back to back with 2 more and then back to back 1 more gallon.

All seems okay now.

I removed 12 feet of Anacharis last Sunday and with some plants melting from not having enough light for 2.5 days last week, had lost my equal balance in the tank. Oops. Who'd have thought 12 feet of plants made the tank params good and without them, shrimp bad.

I am having an issue with my pics of the new tank, if you link here you can see it.

Found a crappy looking fishtank on Craigslist for $55 but it looked like a nice size so I texted the owner and he says that he thinks it's a 50g, I get the deminsions tomorrow. If I do get it, it'll be either an angel tank, an acara tank, or a shrimp tank (I like the shrimp idea)

Took a few pics today, loaded a few here
this is the funny one - how does he just sit there like no big deal?







Try these again





Pwc on the Betta Bowl added a new little heater.

Added a stainless fluval heater which used to be in the SW (cleaned it) to the TT tank at 75F.

PWC on the snail jug ~75%.

Pwc to the BV container 2 50%.

Saw some pics of the female Angel that went to a new home, she looks happy and content.

Got 12 Neons last night and they went into the 15G and no deaths as of tonight. The little Clown Loach already looks like he is filling out, he might have just been hungry.

Spent some time watching the 72G. One of the little Angelfish has a very big chomp out of his tail. I am wondering who did it.

Before the Male and female Angel pair were chompy when they had eggs, now the female has the new home and the male doesn't have any reason to bite.

The pair of Boesemani maybe are the culprits. Though there is one Opaline Gourami who SEEMS to mind his own business. Otherwise I don't know. I didn't see any biting behavior.

I am going to be doing a pwc on the 72G tomorrow.
