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

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.

At the LFS store and secure deal as a guppy breeder YAY!!! And ordered some more RCS to replace loses.. Also forged more deals if my bettas breed....I know don't count yer fish before they hatch.. but the LFS is looking for local breeders in bettas as well as putting in a giant tank just for bettas and he wants more fancy bettas....I may be able to accommodation this if all goes well. My son will be going to him tomorrow to get a 10 gal breeder

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?

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

tarheel92 03-29-2013 10:42 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.

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!

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

Fresh2o 03-30-2013 08:53 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.
