Sorry to hear thing's didn't go well for your blue rasbora, you've been wanting those for a while, at least they didn't sell them to you.
You got more little cories! I think they're so sweet, been seriously thinking of adding some in with my boraras when my new one's finish QT. Careful when you move that tank!
Well, pwc on my boraras things looking good for all of them, the one with the half tail is growing back! I'm seriously thinking my boraras like baby shrimpies :eek: doesn't seem as many as usual and the little guy's love hunting through my plant's Lol
Have a struggling crs for 2 day's he's been laying on his side not able to stand up sad to watch.
Gonzo has destroyed my lotus! so I might remove it, just hope I can take it out without leaving roots behind.

Did the weekly 20% water change today. Looks like I really did lose two of my five amanos after buying them just last week, but the other three seem hardy. And I still have all 11 neons, too. :dance:

I then spent much of the afternoon researching cooling fans for aquariums: we're having a mild heat wave here in LA, and my apartment doesn't have AC, so the tank temp gets worryingly high. Trouble is, the common review of all these products seems to be "cheaply made." Hmm... :nono:

Those Lotus leaves are pretty easily damaged but the bottom roots are usually still good. But Gonzo is kinda fierce.....

Sorry to hear of the crs. Yes so sad.

Got the 2 12G tanks moved. Had to do an additional pwc on each to be able to lift them, lol! 75% on Mr. Aqua and 4G on the Edge. Now I have a mess of wires and misc from having to change their locations.

Also found at least 6 electrical timers in the drawer ranging from the old style that you plug a lamp into when you go on vacation to a few digital ones, which are probably too complicated for me :rolleyes: But, maybe I will hook up the lights to them.

Ugh...Just found out that on a different wall where my SW nano is the wire was tugged and the cord for the power strip got loose and my tank filter hasn't been running for about 9 hours. One of my snails was trying to climb out of the tank! :nono: Anyway it got plugged in now but the filter won't restart, I'm gonna have to clean it out.

Always something!

shellyx 06-20-2016 01:43 PM

Early clean on my elephant nose tank, took 60% out since I had to remove the lotus! The roots pulled out really easily and I don't think the plant was doing very well and Gonzo didn't help! Cleaned his filter's and impeller, trimmed the cabomba a bit.
The little crs that has been struggling is still the same :( don't want to euthanize him as he's still trying to eat, definitely think he's injured himself somehow.
All boraras doing fine, this Thursday I'll be adding my 22 to the tank!
Sadly my little crs died, and I've noticed one of my bamboo dying as well 😭 so I've just done an emergency clean on my tank, so fed up this tank has been nothing but heartache. While my amanos in Gonzos tank are coming up for 5 yrs without any death's. So confused.

~30% water change on the newly dirted/planted/setup tank. Added a BUNCH of new plants to this tank without quarantining them.... :eek: Got a pair of baby snails in that bunch of plants. Who would have thought?

Realized that 4tbsp of peat pellets may have been too much for a 5 gallon tank. Thought I was having another algae bloom, but got to looking and realized it's brown water not green. Cories and Otocinclus seem to REALLY like it though. :fish2:

Gave my Betta's some dwarf water lettuce in their tanks. One of them has already made a bubble nest around his.

Did a 20% water change on the new tank. Looks like the cycle is finally starting to kick off.

~30% water change in the cory/oto tank tonight, found one of my oto's dried up and stuck to the back wall above the water line.... Kind of bummed about that, not sure how it happened, or how he got up there.

Barliman 06-21-2016 11:46 PM

Floated an ice-bottle for a half-hour today: came home to find the tank temp had risen to 80.2 thanks to this heat wave. :eek: Got the temp back down to 78.6. This evening's a bit cooler; fingers crossed things start to level off.

shellyx 06-23-2016 12:28 PM

Added my new boraras to my display tank, all have joined together zooming around the tank!
That's 42 I have in my 30 and you wouldn't think so they're soo tiny! Cute little guy's 😊
My bamboo shrimp had a successful molt I'm pleased to say.
All doing well in Gonzos tank. 3 amano shrimp are carrying eggs again, sad they aren't going to come to anything.

I'm eagerly awaiting signs of growth from my new plants. I decided to go for broke with my lighting. I set up my quad t5HO over my favourite tank. Swapping from a dual t5 to the quad is a bit of a game of Russian roulette with algae, but I mounted the quad setup 6 inches above the waterline. My last light was sitting directly on the tank. Hopefully the light level doesn't cause a nasty algae bloom.

I added some AR mini and HC in the foreground through the week. The AR mini has been a slight pain to keep planted but I'm hopeful that it's about ready to start growing. The plants I've replanted have good signs of root growth after a few days. The HC has been easier. I just tied clumps to some flat rocks. I've tried HC before when I was running less light. It died a creeping death. Hopefully all my plants establish this time. I hate it when I can't make a plant thrive.

The school of endler guppies has settled in well. I love having one species with so much variety in their coloration. If these guys don't breed for me I think I'll give up any hope of breeding fish.

2 weeks after ordering an led update hood for my aquastyle620, it turned up, after about a year of putting up with the old fluro lid and it's buzzing, she's' back on stealth mode, mmm silence

And I decided my yeast diy co2 and to go after only being up for a week, replaced it with a baking soda-citric acid one, sooo much better, sooo much easier

Tested the water. All good but nitrates are a bit up still. Vacuumed and PWC 30%. Removed plastic bioballs and added Biohome ultimate. Will be swapping out funky ceramic rings for Biohome over the next month. If these rings have a single pore in them I can see it.

While doing a big trim of floating leaves to enable me to feed my guies better I spotted some fry. I bought endler guppies because I wanted something that v would breed and finally it's happened. Biggest one ib saw was about 4mm long. Some tank watching seems to be in order for this afternoon.

Thanks. I've tried breeding fighting fish. I probably started with fish that v were too old. The male was short-sighted and never caught the eggs when the female dropped them. The male is supposed to pick them up and deposit them in the bubble nest, then keep watch and pick up any that fall out for 2-3 days. My old fellow completed the rest of the deed but ignored the sinking eggs. With the endlers it was as easy as providing them a tank and a 1m:2f ratio. I'm happy though. Goal achieved. Fry have been born in my tank ��

So, my diy co2 spectacularly exploded this morning, the lid blew off the baking soda chamber pulling the citric acid chamber over, ( pretty much exactly how I described it may happen to my wife when she questioned me about the safety of it ) Luckily i was out of bed and within diving distance so the sticky citric acid spillage was kept minimal, I very loosely put it back together before assessing the damage, when I was just about finished cleaning the walls and the carpet and the couch and the tv and the tank, ( maybe not so minimal ) it want off again, so I pulled it out and threw it in the laundry sink to be modified when I got home from work. It now has more secure lids and tighter hoses, hopefully my diy co2 version 3 stands up ( literally )

ROFL!!! Lunch - the way you told the story was a hoot - thanks for the laugh. Sorry it happened but comical story!

Hardly did a thing the last few days - pwc and added water for evap.

Not too sure with what to do with the giant chaeto monster in my little tank. A couple other things have come up around home so have had other projects taking up my time. Still need to get the tank for the upgraded SW fixed... So behind schedule there.

Saw a little Exo Terra type set up at the ReStore and have been seriously considering a Palladium but refrained and decided to think a little longer and maybe keep my eye open for a bigger size.

Never ends, what interesting projects there are to consider!

Did the usual 20% water change on Sunday and trimmed some plants. The cardamine has been growing like kudzu: I darn near needed a weed-whacker for it. Trimmed the ludwigia repens and I'm already getting good new growth. Trimmed the tallest of the alternanthera reineckii and replanted the top. I'm really happy at how the red in its leaves is finally developing.

Now all I have to do is figure out what to do with the baby platy factory I've got going... :facepalm:

after a few weeks of toying around with diy co2 and getting mixed results I finally made a successful diy setup consisting of only materials from my tank cupboard, complete with needle valve but I wasn't confident turning it right down overnight due to excess pressure buildup (See post #10323) I decided today to take it down and just stick to liquid co2, probably safer for everyone

After stable water parameters for 3 days I moved most of the stock from my way overcrowded 5 gallon tank to the 15gallon. Guppies are having a blast, and the cories are actually swimming around midway up the column which is nice to see as they're usually hiding the best they can. Now I've just got to wait for a good biofilm to develop for the oto's to move over. And I need to decide if I'm going to give this tank the peat treatment.

Autumnsky 07-01-2016 10:04 PM

Hit a fish shop that is pretty far away and hardly ever get over there. Actually went for 20 Cardinals but they didn't have their deal price, not too bad a price but 2.49 each no deals for buying 10 which is usually $20-21.99. So I didn't want to spent the extra $6-10. I can wait a little while for a better sale.

There were some nice FW Fire shrimp but 4.99 too much imho. But in the tank, were some very tiny fish... thought baby White Clouds, and was correct. They were from someone who has a breeding group and brings them in periodically. At .99 each I bought them, WCMM are so pretty.

They had a bunch of Koi Angel babies - body the size of a nickel - 3 for $10. A reasonable deal. So I pick out 3 nice ones with pretty orange heads and some on the bodies. Not like my previous beautiful pairs but after waiting for nicer ones for over a year, I will just buy them. Later will need to remove any females (to keep a peaceful tank), so I am hoping for at least 2 males.

Get home an add the tiny WCMM in with the Tangerine Tiger shrimp after acclimating and the very small (domestically bred but) wild variety Mexican Swordtails fry (Xiphophorus helleri Rio Otapa) start trying to eat them though they are hardly bigger than them, they are much more ferocious!!!

Immediately scoop out the 4 Swordtails and put them into a cup for acclimation to the 12G Edge with the larger Green Kubotai and Phoenix and Chili Rasboras.

I fear now I made a huge mistake putting the little baby ferocious Swordtails in with my Tangerine Tiger Shrimp. Pretty sure now the small TT are gonna be gone since the Swordtails were in there.

Always keep learning from your mistakes. :banghead:

Will be putting the 3 new Angels into the 46G QT tank.

Did a ~40% pwc on the 72G. Wiped out the inside rim of the tank and glass while the water level was down.

Did a refill of water from evap on the SW nano and the 2 ~ 12G tanks.

Haven't yet, but also need to do a 50% pwc on the QT tank.

Plan to shop around to see if we there is a better deal on Cardinals.

While at the fish shop, also looked at the Discus they had there but they had some kind of parasite.

The guy was going to sell them to me infected but then I noticed the spots! What nerve!!! Then I decline the purchase and he says yeah its not Ich but probably someother type of parasite, I have been treating them!!! WHAT???!!!

Not buying from them again. I really couldn't believe it. The situation was shocking. It wasn't the owner but the tank wasn't marked as under observation either!!! Wow! :nono:

After 8 months of floating, the dw in my big tank is finally waterlogged enough to be weighed down with minimal effort, nowhere near the estimated 2 weeks the guy at the lfs I bought it from told me it would take, just as I was about to give up on it and take it out... Can finally start setting up the tank around it!

Alan79 07-02-2016 08:07 AM

Pwc on 6 tanks followed by feet dosing and feeding. Seems like I've eliminated most of the gha in my 35g. I'm dosing API co2 but its getting low. LFS had none yesterday. I'm going to ask them to order in a 2L bottle of flourish excel as well as some of the flourish ferts. They only stock micronutrients so I'd love to get hold of the macros. I hate ordering things online so hopefully they get my stuff in stock soon. Need to make them a wish list though.

I'm excited about seeing growth from my AR mini. It was on a list of plants I've wanted to buy here for a year or so. I hadn't seen it for sale until recently. I think that the list of plants being shipped to Australia is improving slowly. The lighting upgrade I did recently is paying dividends. My previous setup would not have supported AR or the experiment I'm running to see which of the four groundcover plants i'm experimenting with will win the right to take pride of place in my tank.

Does anyone know of a good supplier of dry ferts that shops to Australia? I think its time for me to switch away from the premixed fetrs.

Ruutah 07-03-2016 02:49 AM

Been a busy 48 hours for my tanks. Last night I replaced the 5 otocinclus I lost with 3 more and 4 female fancy guppies. The two boys in the tank are no longer spastically chasing eachother. Now they follow the girls around like teenagers. Added Pothos to all three tank filters. Changed out 1 cartrige and added some peat to another to try and soften the water up some.

Today stopped by another LFS and finally found some hornwort. Got two big handfuls of the stuff and some water sprite. Split it between all three tanks. The Bettas are already making nests in the floating hornwort..

Autumnsky 07-04-2016 05:27 AM

Did a all water out of my 46G QT tank and will refill tomorrow - maybe. Considering just selling it and getting it out of the way.

Added the 3 little Angels to the 72G. The 2 big Angels have been anything but Angels - chasing the little guys around, even fed them all first. If they don't settle down I will probably move them out.

Maybe moving the 72G Monday... Depends on how much energy I have in the morning.

Cut a lengthwise slice of zucchini and nuke it in the microwave for about 15 seconds, then, when it cools down, plant it in the substrate (you might have to use something to hold it down) just before lights out. When you come back the next morning, I guarantee you'll find it covered in snails. Then you can take it out and toss it. :thumb:

Other means are loaches and (I think) pea puffers, and assassin snails. :ninja:

Thanks Carriwin.

As of this afternoon the little ones were all alive and seemed to have found areas to hang out and not to be in the mouth area of the two other big Angels. A couple more days to get settled with eachother - I hope all is well.

Did not have time to move the big tank.

Also had to add a new power strip since any jiggling cords around the TV caused the tank plug to get too loose and turn off my SW nano tank 3-4 times now!!!. Mostly it involved someone else in the house jiggling things around. I would have usually noticed if the pump and lights went out!!!

Will need to move the 72G tank in a few days, too much on my schedule atm. Maybe Friday or Sunday.

Turned the light on for my 55g planted this morning. Hoping things continue to go well. I still continue to see signs of life from the snails, so I'm hoping things are still moving smoothly. I am actually going to run parameter checks this evening. I don't know why, but I'm really nervous about this tank... I just keep staring at it, thinking how pretty it is. I guess that's just the whole "newness" of it I'm sure.

As of today the 3 baby Angels seem to be all intact no missing fins from being attacked. Fingers crossed. The big Angels will still chase the little ones...

Have been feeding a little bit 2x per day in the tanks with the babies it's hard to not REALLY over feed (at least for me)!

Spent an hour or so last night watching videos from DIY king for odd and interesting projects for aquariums. Amusing. Might try the potato one to make oxygen out of Peroxide, lol, in the event of an emergency.

Noticing the big Anubias is looking poorly. The Nana and smaller ones all seem to grow outstandingly. Except my white splotched Pinto. Tried more light over the last month but didn't do any good, so need to add it to a better, brighter lighted tank.

Live and learn.

Ruutah 07-07-2016 02:07 AM

Removed everything except the giant hairgrass from my 5 gallon and moved it to the 15 including the last otocinclus. Little bugger climbed the net and did a 2 inch high dive out of it before I could get him into the water in the new tank. Water parameters were almost identical in the two tanks. Think I've finalized a plan to move everyone come the end of the month.

How much filtration is too much? :) fixing to have 5 filters running on this 15. 3 sponge and 2 hob.

TMaier, you're not even remotely kidding.


So, I tried to build my pleco a home... (pictures on the thread) however I realized very quickly this morning that it was not adequate, so I put in a fake half log so he had a place to be so he wasn't overly stressed. I really wanted to keep everything as "living" as possible... I'm going to see what I can do to obtain something appropriate for him in either driftwood or rock.

https://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...cture70366.jpg

I am noticing frustration with my plants. They seem green enough, and relatively happy, but I had one "collapse" on me... I think it got hit with an algae. But it's still green, so I don't know... I do know it looks a little fuzzy though.

Leaf detritus... does that spike nitrates like fish carcass does? *deep sigh* Ever get the feeling you might've taken on too much too quickly?

I have to obtain small vials for my parameters... well, I'll be using a drinking glass anyway until then.

I'm going to be picking up the new fish tonight... I'll be emptying out my tank and changing it into a QT dept... then going from there. Which tetris piece to move next?! :neutral:

30% WC on 5 tanks, topped up my betta tank.

Bought 3 new Siamese algae eaters (to the best of my knowledge). I acclimated them in with my bn pleco. They can quarantine in there before I move them into my community tank. I gave the filter sponges a clean out before I added the SAE and had the Pleco make an escape attempt. I had the filter about 7 cm over the tank before the pleco surprised me by dropping off into the tank again. It's the first time I've seen him in a while in his jungle of stems and crypts. The SAE went right to work on some of the algae as soon as I removed them from the fish bag.

I was tempted to buy a yellow betta as well as 5 black widow tetras due to them being discounted to 5 for $10. Sanity prevailed though and I left them there.

My last task for the day is to remove a blue ram from the community tank. It looks like it had a small patch of fish fungus I'll need to medicate for. I will try using the blue planet fungus cure first. I also have some aqua master fungus cure.

Otherwise everything looks good in my tanks.

Had a 10 hour power outage today due to several trees coming down in a mudslide. Made some O2 generators out of coke bottles, a potato and hydrogen peroxide. Everyone seems fine tonight, so I guess it worked.

I have heard of people using beef heart and peroxide provide to generate oxygen. Might still be a good idea to do a bit of a water change to ensure there was no ammonia build up while the flyers were out. 10 hours without electricity would be a massive pain for you without having the aquariums to worry about.

I've got water conditioning and ageing for doing that tomorrow. Wasn't too bad. Just boring as heck way to spend the last day of my vacation.

Autumnsky 07-09-2016 05:11 AM

Wow, sounds like the potato O2 thing worked like a charm, and everyone else getting things done too.

All I got done was filled the bowls and buckets and containers of water plants and algae, (and dare say a few mosquito larve will try to catch and to feed the Rainbows and Angels tomorrow,) that are hanging out outside under the tree. It has been so dry and hot but I hadn't got around to filling them up and I didn't want to use hose water not treated.

The water did come from the 2 12G tanks pwc of about 3G each. :) Recycling between the flower beds and those.

Hoping to get the big tank pwc tomorrow, decided not to move it for a few more days. I am trying to get a couple more pwc done to get the GH lowered some more. That way there isn't a big shock on the tank. Our water right now is very low GH and 0 KH from the tap. I will be adding some magnesium and calcium and tiny bit of baking soda to the refill water when the tank is moved as well. In the mean time plan to research various remineralizers like for RO water and see how they compare to the homemade version I usually use.

Showed off the little baby fish to a friend. The WCMM babies are almost double what they were in size, a little longer but mostly thickening up from a thin wisp to nearly looking like a tiny fish :) The baby native Mexican Swords look like they are early elementary school age now - getting bigger, one even has a hint of color!

Ruutah 07-09-2016 03:55 PM

Apparently I should have just done the water change last night. Woke up to one of my otocinclus on it's side on the bottom. :( so I did a water change today, ~60% or so. Went to test the water after an hour had gone by and saw the circle of life. So yeah... I've got guppy babies, and a lot of them.

Ruu - soo precious and yeah pretty much there are always a lot of Guppy babies. Very fun to have though, nice pic.

King - so jealous! Can't wait to see new build thread / pics!

Well..... used some of my otherwise useless pond test strips to check the general parameters of my GH, KH and pH.

The tap water was ~
Gh about 25/40 (less than I thought it would be)
Alk 40 (more than I though it would be)
pH 6.5

When compared to my big tank 72G my GH was way too high at 300 - what I suspected, Alk was about 40 and pH was around 6.5

This means I will stop dosing the trace minerals and add more calcium as I do the next two 30% pwc in the next couple days.

Then, in the middle of the week I will get the tank back to "tap parameters" with a little extra calcium and a pinch of baking soda to keep the buffer up and do the 80% water out of the tank to move it all the way across the family room, ~40'

Hoping the change in water parameters will make the Rainbows really happy. This is still a learning process for me and I am so preoccupied with so many other things in life right now, following along with a specific testing schedule has fallen by the wayside, also why there has been the reduction of tanks.

This will be a good opportunity to vac the bottom, clean the FX-5 filter and maybe pull out a couple fish I don't need in that tank and get a couple more that I do.

Love the idea of getting things back in order and going forward from a good spot.

Ruutah 07-10-2016 03:11 AM

Went to my LFS to try and get my money back on the two otos that I lost after getting them last week, but due to not having the receipt the best they could do is exchange them. :( so I picked oh what I think is a male and female neon blue dwarf gourami. The ones patterning is MUCH lighter than the other, and it's dorsal fin is rounded off. I've got a tank on standby if shenanigans occur.

I'm a sucker... I told myself when I found the guppy fry I was going to let nature take it's course and if they made it, they made it. Its a heavily planted tank.

But by the time I got ready to add in the DG's the adults were hunting them fairly actively, and the gouramis joined in almost immediately after checking out the rest of the tank. So I quickly netted those I could see and dropped them in a breeder box I picked up when my cories surprised me with a wall full of eggs (that ended up being infertile). To which I threw a stem of anacharis and hornwort into so they didn't have to use the cheesy plastic bushes to feel safe.

The DG's are steadily checking the box out.

Do you have any clean mosquito larve around?

Autumnsky 07-13-2016 02:46 AM

Ah forgot my posting...

So the little baby fish are still present and growing well, Mexican Swords and the Tiny White Cloud Mountain Minnows aka WCMM. AND the 3 little Koi Angels are growing fast, almost doubled their size so far. The adult Angels seem to have forgotton about chasing them around. They will shoo them away from their space if they get too close but don't seem to be hunting them around the plants and things anymore :).

Found that my getting out a bunch of Cladophora in my 12G Edge did not end the growth. To the contrary, additional feedings for the babies and younger fish seems to have made it especially cozy in the 2 areas of moss and on the rock that it calls home. It seems as if I have Marimo Moss balls forming there!

Too bad they aren't! But they aren't... So I may need to limit the light and go back to split photo periods again, more water changes and check if there is PhosGuard in that filter, I think it has Purigen but not the PhosGuard. Water is sparkling clear though, lol.

This is the tank I want to rescape. It was just initially set up to hold everything until I set up the brand new one, which ended up being cracked. So it wasn't set up. As happens, it started to grow in and doesn't look too bad, but certainly isn't how I would have set up.

On a different tangent... I am still annoyed that Fluval never released the promised over 2 years ago tank system that was going to be considerably larger and have plant growing lighting, and the other one a reef system setup with lighting for growing corals too, remote or phone controlled, yada, yada, yada.

Okay...done...for now.

Love the borara tank Shelly!

Water changes on the 23, 10 and 3G tanks. Currently selling the angel fry (they're almost three mths old now!) and setting up another 10G for them. The algae eater seems to have disappeared again. Last time we didn't find him for three days and then he suddenly popped up. Strange fish he is!

Looking for some low-light and not too expensive live plants for my 23G. Any suggestions? Oh and anyone know how to prepare driftwood for a tank? I have a nice piece that I think I'll attach some plants to later. Thanks!

I have a 5G bucket of excess plants in the yard the mosquitos find it and make the babies with out wasting any time. I usually put barley hay logs in there to keep them from making larve, but since I have little fish I harvest them with a little net every other or couple days. Just make sure no one is spraying bugs or wasps or using weed and feed etc. around your bucket.

Thank you. That is nice about the water, the fish love it!

I emailed Hagen / Fluval to find out about the other tank - the 19G New Edge tanks availability. They said a response would come in 3 business days.

Fish look good. Fasted them for a day.

SW - Some more of my Tea Cups macroalgae bleached. Only have a couple little bits left. Frustrated about that stuff, it is really tempermental. Being it is my favorite makes it even worse. I am guessing it is the light, maybe doesn't like too much.

On the other hand the Feather Caulerpa is growing like crazy. The other one which looks like little curvy twisting green seaweed - Prolifera - not very prolific. It was growing pretty steadily from about 4-5 leaves to maybe 10 but seems to have slowed as the Feather took off and maybe is smothering it out.

I really need to get the other little bigger tank up for the SW so I have some where to spread this stuff out! The Chaetomopha is officially across the whole left side of the tank now to the middle. Of course it is olny 6.6G but it is taking up 1/4 of the tank now.

On the bright side, the Pom Pom Crab comes out and sits in the middle side of it and holds out its little Poms!!! Beautiful contrast. This is the previous pic, but it looks exactly the same.

I've just enjoyed the tanks the last few days. Guppies are getting silly. If I put my hand in the tank for something they're checking it out, and darting around it looking for food. They've also learned that my long planting tweezers usually means food(trying to not contaminate my water too much) and have gotten gutsy enough they don't even wait for me to let the food go before they dart in and start grabbing some. Even the new gourami have starting coming up to the tweezers.

Blonde so to speak and not Orange like they were before when I had a larger and better stock. Still have some nice bright orange just not very many.

Ruu - Guppies are always hungry!!! And about to have babies, lol!

Oh and spent about 2 hours looking at fish I am thinking of purchasing.

Alan79 07-14-2016 05:10 AM

I held off on buying guppies for a long time.i saw endler guppies and they broke my resistance. Like autumnsky said they're ashtrays hungry and pregnant. My first batch of 15 our so arrived after a couple of weeks with 1 female. I have 6 now and they all look pregnant. I'm guessing I'll have a population explosion very soon. My guppy babies are coming along nicely though. One is almost twice the size of its siblings already. It's first in at feeding time. Two of the three males I had have disappeared though. Hopefully they bred before they departed. Only 1 male left.

The three Siamese algae eaters have settled in nicely. I had a tank that was overrun with algae that they're busily munching on whenever I see them. They get algae wafers too but they're always eating. I thought one was dead yesterday, I reached in to get it out and when I touched it lo and behold it swam away like greased lightning. I guess they look dead when they sleep.

Almost out of CO2 supplements. Both LFS are out and have been for two weeks. I'll check again tomorrow. If they've got none tomorrow I'll resurrect the 6 DIY setups and run them on my main tank until liquid co2 arrives. It's a mini crisis. My tank is running almost algae free so I don't want to change anything. I think I might order a 2L bottle from Seachem after this so I have a good supply on hand. I tried looking for metricide but I couldn't find a supplier in Australia. It may be time to start planning an upgrade to a serious co2 setup.

Water changes all around. Laughed at how quickly the guppy fry are growing and learning who I am. When I poke my nose over the breeder box to get a closer look they all come up and greet me. Rather amusing.

The albino Pleco made an appearance yesterday, I usually only get to see the end of his tail poking out of his log. Dude at the LFS lied. He claimed it would take years for him to outgrow his tank. At the rate he's going he's going to need a new tank in a few months. He's doubled in size from 2" to easily 4" in 4 months at the inch per gallon rule he's about to outgrow the current setup of two betta and a Pleco in a 10 gallon. (With a divider. They're both getting their own 10 gallon after the move)
