Okay, was gone for nearly 2 weeks. The little 30 day pill trays were packed for 2 weeks and the process was easy for my DH. I did not get the lights programmed correctly so the lights were manually turned on and off.
Overall things went very, very well, though there was one exception. The SW
Mandarin Dragonet passed while I was gone. The $50 bogo free, pods
arrived quickly but it was too late I guess. It ate foods from commercially prepared bags too and frozen. Everyone says they are high maintenance and need special attention and me being gone was a problem. I do not plan to get another one of them.
What this means is I am selling the just purchased 50G starfire SW
cube. That fish was THE reason for not setting up a nano tank after the move. I bought it at a good price and then bought new live sand, light, and a $100, pump, plus some bacteria infused flat man made SW
stones to build the base of the rock arch/cave.
My heart isn't in the SW
right now. Plan to do a nano tank for my little aged Yellow Clown Goby which I love. Appx. 7 years old.
Here is a pic of the 30G Waterbox looking fresh after a 30% pwc
Center the little fish with the bent spine is the cull from the Wadai Tetras tank. (99.99% will not be breeding and if it did the babies would be eaten immediately)
Also did a pwc
on the 12G black Edge mixed Bee Shrimp tank.
Working through all the other tanks.
Have a ton of algae on the white PRL Edge tank, it was next to a window of the back doorway and I added rice paper film on the glass to cut back the direct light. Have to clean that one out next. Saw all the shrimp in there 12, but there are hiding places so the 13th one could be hiding. The babies are growing nicely.
Looking at a group of 17 mostly Deep Blue - Blue Bolt shrimp. The breeder is closing his tank down and selling out. Also a low iron 4G nano tank maybe for a project.
