Well... I did a 50% water change today. I can't find the smallest guppy. I think she may have become lunch for the gourami. So there's that.

Aw, sorry. Are there any hiding spots for them?

There are a few plants they can hang out around but they were just mostly staying right at the top of the water.

The gourami is swimming around and the guppy is hanging out at the top.

Amazon has the cheapest test kits! Only takes like 3 days to get it.

So... My gourami is acting rather sad again. I did a 50% water change yesterday and today he is blah. I took a sample of water to the store to get tested and the ammo was 0. Nitrates and trites were less than 20. (yes- paper strip tests.). PH was still a tad high. I also bought 3 live plants! I'm hoping that the plants will help make him happy. I'm planning on getting the API test kit on Thursday. Or at least order it on Thursday.

Also- I've got my eye on a 29 gal tank with a stand. Mr gourami would live that!

Yes, a 29 gallon would be great. Keep up the water changes. Hopefully the tank will get cycled soon. If you get the 29 gallon, don't get rid of the filter media in your current tank. Transfer it to the new filter when you start that tank.
