Moved the Mr. Aqua tank over a couple feet to the left on the cabinet had to move the pad and lift the tank back onto it.

Tested and sorted some air pumps and labeled as working and tied up cords and put them into a bag for later use. Cleaned a 5G Marineland corner Eclipse tank someone is getting this week.

Basic set up for new 12 Edge tank in a few minutes. Still haven't really decided about the substrate.

This will be a nano fish tank. Will have a dwarf Cory species - probably more of the Habrosus, more Boraras Brigittae, more yellow Green Kubotai Microdevario one I have been waiting to arrive are Sundadanio Axelrodi (aka Rasbora) Blue Neon. Maybe Dwarf Hatchets. Maybe a kind of shrimp.

No fish in there yet.

Just have to get the plants out of the bucket and back into a tank.

Try to deal with the other 2 buckets of plants as well.

Did water changes on the tanks, some algae clean up, making plans to take the 10 down and do a rescape, and change out the substrate.

So disturbing news that there are two big cracks in my brand new never unwrapped 12G tank glass on the top. I was speechless. Now I will spend the next few weeks figuring this situation out. Hagen is pretty good with customer svc. But I bet it was a problem from the store level. My heart almost stopped when I opened the bag.

Not sure what plan B is for the time being...

Maybe shift gears and move the 5G Chi to the 6.6G now.

Added the plants back into the old 12G Edge. Pretty much just threw them in. Its cloudy.

Got the 6.6G Edge LR thrown in too and tried to add the inverts. I didn't see my little Pistol shrimp in the subtrate, rinsed that out and added it in. Hoping he was in the rocks or rubble and hitched in.

Otherwise I have a few inverts - snails and a couple Hermits and a Yellow Clown Goby. My Peppermint shrimp wasn't there either. Hadn't seen him since the week after the Pistol Shrimp got there. There seem to be less snails and hermits so I think the little Pistol shrimp was alive for a little while. 2 tank changes in a few weeks has to be stressfull on them.

When I can I will place an order for some pods and some new macroalgae and pick up a few more snails and hermits hopefully repopulate the tank and get it looking better again. It is cloudy and depressing atm. Should maybe have a little bit of a cycle, but will keep up with the prime and do a couple little pwc. Checked the salinity with the new water added and it was good. Need more SW.

Found this lil sprout in my 55g community. It's about an inch tall and I don't have a clue how I've missed it until now

Over the weekend one of my Peppermint Shrimp "gave birth" to some uncountable number of free floaters...

I noticed the eggs on Saturday and saw the results on Sunday.

I'm gonna keep an eye on the pair and see how soon it happens again.

AWESOME!!!! Nice job with that. Is there anything to eat the free floaters or no?

Maybe Ebi Chi for babies.

Original 12G FW Edge back to being clear and using the Fluval Marine light on it since that original light bar is broken.

SW 6.6G Edge looks better but cloudy still. I am going to set up a little filter on it later - and need more SW to do a big pwc.
