Water changes all around. Also on day 2 of the 1,000 +/- gallon pond build. Yesterday was digging and measuring, today was more digging and laying the felt and liner- in the wind and freezing cold pouring rain.

Today I got an awesome new shipment of plants from Peabody's Paradise (I highly recommend them if you're in the plant market) and did a rescape to the 29G build.

The littlest of the Pseudotropheus Saulosi tail has been nipped too much and yesterday night I finally got the little guy and what a battle it was to get that one. He is the smallest of the 21 cichlids I have and not sure who been doing it. Im gonna let his tail grow back before putting him in or wait for him to get a tab bigger before putting him back inside.

Finally got my breeding tank set up for my Bettas. Initially I was waiting to go and get some wood and cinder blocks to make a more permanent stand, but I gave in and just used some plastic crates for now. Sponge filter is bubbling, heater is heating, and I am excited!

I got a tetra whisper 20-40 from Walmart yesterday. It was on clearance for $4.50! Now I just have to decide what tank to put it on!

Got a new RLSS R6 skimmer for my 120g. Life is good.

Yesterday I moved the 10 gallon Princess tank to a new stand, increased our Neon stock to the magic five number, and cleaned everything.

Oh, I slightly modified the plastic grass. I think this looks much better!

That stinks :(

Sorry but like you said its for the best. Are you gonna get another one?

SKB 04-26-2013 11:10 AM

Idk. If I did itll be a bristlenose, unless some other kind stays small?

Otherwise I was thinking about a loach or bichir or something for the bottom. I don't really want any of those rainbow sharks and I cant do cory's. Its for my American cichlid tank.

Maybe some Botia loaches? They come in all different patterns or a synodontis?

Im gonna get something. Just don't know what yet. What other kinds of pleco's stay smaller besides bristlenose?

Otherwise I was wondering if a bichir or some kind of loach can handle American cichlids? I want something for the bottom but i don't really care to own rainbow sharks and cory cats wont last with Americans. :confused:

SKB 04-26-2013 11:15 AM

haha! tried to edit that one and apparently it didn't work.

idk, im not sure catfish are what im looking for. Ill check out the botia loaches...but i think pleco's are in my blood! lol Im looking at different kinds on bubblesaquarium.com right now and think its gonna be a pleco.

Water changes for the 10 gallon betta tanks today, and boy did I screw up! I grabbed my busted bucket by accident and didn't realize until the bucket was full that it was leaking! And it seemed to fill so slowly... Probably got a gallon or so on the carpet and had to stop to sop it all up. Finished my water changes with soaked socks and wet pants. Not fun!
