I chopped up a little but of shrimp and my fish loved it! (rummy nose and neon tetras, leopard danios, Mickey mouse and hi fin platys, endlers). Even the little platy fry were getting excited. Interestingly enough though- my shrimp didn't seem to want any. I was hoping they weren't cannibals. My fish are spoiled! Bloodworms yesterday, raw shrimp today... They aren't even going to want their flake tomorrow. Maybe I'll break up an algae tab instead of flake. They like those too.

Went and picked up 2 cory cats from the lfs today. Didn't want to get too many at 1 time. How many do you all think I should have all together?

Trying this thing with the 150 before I move it inside. Canister has been hooked up and running now a couple of days. Tested the water (it actually has sort of a greenish cast now) and parameters are:

ph 7.6 ammo .5 nitrate 0-.5 nitrite 5.0

29 gal inside looks very clear, and has THIS for parameters:

ph 6.0 ammo .5 nitrate .8 nitrite 1.0



Last water change in 29 was a couple of days ago.





I am having to wait on people to help lift and move this behemoth. It is incredibly heavy glass. Right now it is a little more than half full, and I am wondering if I might be able to save and use some of the water that is in there, since it seems to be cycling.
