I just texted my boyfriend a picture of the boiling wood and told him it was dinner tonight, wood soup. It seems to be water logging very well though and it shouldn't take long to sink. Not much tannins coming off of it either, it looks like I'm getting off easy this time! I still have some small pieces that have been soaking for a couple weeks and are still floating. Going to drop them in to boil again with this piece.

Would of loved to have seen his face! I was lucky i got a good piece of bogwood with Anubias attached from ebay it had been soaking for 3 months so it saved me the trouble. Good luck with yours :)

Geez whatta day! Aclimated new betta (Got up early to catch the mail)....PWC 10 gal #1, Cycling 10gal #2, then when it was all good, catching old fish, and plants for new tank from old. Little buggers is fast! The plants that is!:D Fish drove my nuts actually, they destroyed the planted tank, which then had to be fixed, when they ran from the net. Now, I am off to work to get a break!:fish1:

98kshooter 03-22-2013 10:59 PM

Just noticed the new tank still looks bare. Guess I will be plant shopping this payday....it my check permits....

I might go looking for more harliuqun Rasboras. I found them locally last year and picked up 6. I lost one awhile ago and want to fill out the group more, they are so pretty! But I can never find any...

kjacks 03-23-2013 02:35 PM

Setting up our 10g for the crawfish/crayfish that are supposed to be in this week sometime.. the hubby picked his new decor n we ended up bringing home coconut shell huts and possibly gonna get a shack (reminds me of guilligans island) just glad he didnt want neon sand or gravel or plants.. lol i prefer the more natural but its his tank tryin not to take it over.. Got our little cichlids in the 20g growing still they seem to be enjoying exploring hoping it doesnt take too long to get them to the big tank just need about 2 inches bigger . Doing pwc on all running tanks and mayb some rescaping while im at it.. my water changer came in today just in time... :)

shellyx 03-23-2013 02:59 PM

50 % clean on my bettas tank and filters rinsed. Added amazon frogbit to his tank and he loves sitting under it :)

finally started working on it after about 2-3 years of being dry docked. Made a new rim for it to replace the busted plastic one, hanging in the garage awaiting some final paint touch ups then on to the tank for the last time and a test fill in the back yard

I have always wanted a tank like that! With bluegill and bass! That would be awesome.

I still want one! I wonder how big of a tank a bass would need. That would be REALLY cool!

patriciamargaretha 03-24-2013 10:42 PM

I added some more rocks that I collected from thus desert... Arranged them so there would be plenty of hiding spots for the lil ones... And then I just sat back and watched them...

Best have a very good full seal lid! My bass made numerous dry land attempts! (Actually jumping while feeding) Bluegills are cool but have mean streaks...they will eat anything smaller than then and harass anything bigger than them. I once had a "lake tank" as a teen, and they are alot of work. It was a 40 gal.. and had 2 bullheads, 3 bluegill/sunfish, 2 bass, and a Northern pike. Needless to say it worked til the fish got large, and put stress in the tank and they had to be released. And wild fish are messy! And the only commercially available feed they would eat was freeze dried tubifex worms. They preferred live food and I went through a lot of creek minnows and bugs! In the winter I was able to get them to eat dry dog food and softcraws from the bait store. I'll never do THAT sort of tank again!

98kshooter 03-25-2013 09:34 AM

And while just replanted a couple loose plants in tank 1, I see I am now a daddy... My guppies had 2 fry. Soo cool! and with all the plants they got lotsa hiding places!

shellyx 03-25-2013 06:21 PM

Before...... clear view through the back of the aquarium

After- Painted it black and used a great paint- No VOC & almost/no paint odor. I did it inside and couldnt smell nothing!
https://img577.imageshack.us/img577/8227/img1435jf.jpg


A little closer. 3 coats of paint- 3.5 hrs. An hour before adding the next coat of paint. I like how it cam eout and pops the colors of the cichlids.

Not today, but last night before I went to bed, I realized my marbled crayfish is berried again! So along with the stuff I will be picking up for my betta project I think I will be getting a nice big Rubbermaid tub to move the babies into.

The aq20 that will be my QT filter came in today, so that went on the main tank to start cycling, and still just waiting for those nitrites to start appearing. Cycling is on day 5, Ammonia is right around 4ppm and everything else is 0. Waiting is the worst.

I've heard bad things about those auto feeders. And with the light timers, I may look into those. But where my tanks are, they get a get plenty of natural light. Also, may/June on the Midwest, it can get pretty hot, so I'm kind of worried about major water evaporation.

kimmcannally 03-27-2013 06:43 PM

I use an auto feeder all the time on my leopard ctenepoma tank. They are so shy it works well - they can be fed while I'm not standing by the tank. I use the autochef and love it.

apet66 03-27-2013 07:02 PM

If I was going to be gone for 2 weeks I would be desperately searching for someone I could trust and offer them cash to stop in a couple times a week. Have top off water on hand and try to make it as simple as possible for them to at least maintain the water level. I use a digital auto feeder with no problems at all on my cichlid tank. Program feeding times, multiple feedings if needed. Not sure of the brand but I got it at PetSmart for like $30.00.

98kshooter 03-27-2013 07:32 PM

Drained most of the water from my 29 and 30 gallon tanks (into buckets to be put back) and moved them so I could make room for the new to me 55gal that I am gonna upgrade my 30gal salt water tank to. The 30 is an incomplete reef startup that I just wanted to upsize before I get too much in it. Cant wait to get the 55 cleaned up an move everything over from the 30 gal.

My wife loves freshwater fish but the only thing she wants to do is feed the little buggers lol. Better that way I guess I'm kinda ocd about cleaning things so I know it is cleaned right. I want her to learn though. And to learn how to mix salt and change my reef tank water so I can sit back and relax for a change. I work 60 hours a week and have 15 hours drive time a week. I wish she would learn lol. I'm going to teach her how to top off my reef this week

Lol .. ill prolly still be the one doing all the maintence but its ok bc he is atleast taking a step up and not fussing about having 1 tank.. we have came along way since i now have 4 tanks.. well 3 one is his .. i just suggested since its his tank he needs to learn about it and take care of it not depend on me to care for his pets.. it worked ;)

Got two Bettas over to my neighbor (who had been injured in an auto wreck and recovering away from home). The Betta which had recovered from his swim bladder problem, and another to keep him company.

Moved my snail /shrimp /plant bowl, to the new house.

https://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...cture52926.jpg

The Arrowhead plants in the top are twice the size as in the pic. This is from a week or two ago.

Started three grow your own lily bulbs from Petco, my other one is growing like crazy. There are some Apongotons in the background which have been growing for a year, and some new ones from the multipack in the foreground. Not sure if you can see them, but the onions are growing too, more in the middle. lol, fun.

The lily has more than 15 leaves, now, including big ones floating on the top of the tank...This pic was also a week or 2 ago.

Yeah I know. But I dont trust people with my tanks. Except everyone on here giving me advice. I was gone for 3 days and told my mom to not feed the fish. I came home and she said that she fed them because 'they looked hungry.'

Worked with the hubby to setup his tank.. i have been cycling it well since Sunday i think . I used media from 1 of my running tanks and added some fish food . Got him outside n started letting him clean the sand.. he thought after one time it was done.. i was like nope we got a few more times to go. He did good though . We added his decor and since it was a backup plan we added some plants we had.. once it clears up one of us will add some photos.. soo proud of him though it looks way better then i thought

50% water change today and gravel vacuum. My ASI freshwater kit should be in tomorrow. Maybe I will have a better piece of mind on my levels. You all keep me worried with your criticism of the strips.

It looked clean enough after one rinse but she made me keep cleaning five more times. Glad she helped me set it up. We need to add a stone that makes bubbles and fix the light but here is my first tank.

Introduced 3 more leopard danios to one of my tanks to complete a school.

Water changes on both tanks. On another note, The filter on the 10 gallon crapped out on me:( so I know what I'm doing tomorrow. Hoping my neons will be ok for tonight w/o a filter. Should I move them to the 29 to be safe?

Jasoncwrd2002 03-29-2013 07:56 PM

Thought I had a bubble algae problem. Figured out it wasn't and removed it

tarheel92 03-29-2013 09:42 PM

My nitrites spiked today, nitrates started showing, and I mixed my pps-pro dry ferts to start dosing tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be ordering my fish by this time next week.

98kshooter 03-29-2013 10:02 PM

My son got a used 15 gal from the LFG. And set it up as a breeder for the time being. Got 3 guppies to add to the breeding pool and spent some time shooting the breeze with my fish guy. At 7 guppy fry still...and getting ready to try our first betta breed. Interesting times ahea!

phishfriend 03-30-2013 01:05 AM

Added nine new fish to the 75g to complete the stock.

Fresh2o 03-30-2013 07:53 AM

Actually something I did last weekend...I removed several plants from from my 20g L planted tank an moved them to a new shrimp tank. Planted tank has been running for about five months and I was shocked at the amount of crud, poop, etc accumulated in that time. I don't gravel vac. I stirred up as much as I could. I pulled out the media in the main HOB for a few hours (sat in a bucket of water) and filled two HOBs with poly-Fil and let them polish the water for several hours.

Redid my 10 gallon. Both tanks have sand and I will never go back to gravel!

Looks good! I feel the same way, once I put sand in one tank I put sand in all of them. No more gravel for me, either!

Thanks! It was a pain in the butt! Already lost an Otto. It couldn't handle everything:( I also had to evacuate all 6 of my neons to my 29 gallon. The filter died last night and im not sure if they'll pull through as well. I just might turn this into a planted shrimp tank. Already have 6-7 blueberry shrimp in the tank.
