I'm pretty confident the last one is hiding, but he also might of got out during the pwc

I'm so sorry about your otos.

Tried to find and save fry in my guppy tank.

Apparently the breeding I used was too big and the babies slipped through the holes.
I only found one left by the time I got home this afternoon I could only fin 1.

Luckily the female still looks like she's got a few in her so hopefully I can save them. Put her into an actual small tank rather than a net this time.

The female is the last one left in my red lace snakeskin strain from Pete Mang so I'm going to be very disappointed if these don't make it. Of course she'll have more, but not soon enough, she was huge this time!

Hope you find some more and feed the momma so she won't want to eat them!

I finally hit the $1/ gallon sale! Picked up a 40 breeder, a 20 long, and a doubletail half-moon betta, all for... $91! Less than the regular cost of the 40. My neighbor went with me since she has a van so we could actually haul tanks home, and she gave me a spare 10 gallon tank since she replaced one of hers with a 20. So all in all, good day! Three new tanks and a pretty fish. Gonna relax for a while then clean up the 10 gallon since it's kinda gross from sitting empty for a while, then it's time to start cleaning my spare room out to make way for the tanks. Hopefully I can get to lowe's sometime soon for stand materials. And then I'll be placing a nice big order of supplies from fosters and smith.

I now have:
Running -
3x 10 gallon
30 gallon long
5 gallon
56 gallon cube
1.5 gallon

Empty-
10 gallon
40 gallon
20 long
20 high

Plus a hex tank of unknown gallonage that I haven't picked up yet.

For a grand total of 12 tanks and 212+ gallons. Yeah, I think I have a mild case of MTS.

Oh that's not too bad. And kuhliis are soo much fun to catch...NOT, I have 7-8 in my tank and they aren't coming out till they kick the bucket.

I feel the same way. I have like 8 - 12 lost count coz I never see them.

Bought some tiny julli Cory cats a few weeks ago and really noticed how big they've grown.

Thanks! I'm piecing together supplies for all 4 new tanks on Drs foster and smith right now. You know, buying supplies for one tank at a time isn't bad... But buying stuff in quadruplicate really adds up! But saving so much on the tanks helped a lot. I'm looking at an average of less than $100 per tank!

I'm sorry was it your only one left? You're having some bad luck the last few days. I'm sure things will get better

Yep it was my last :( he swam into the glass during pwc, he's obviously injured himself. It's been a awful week. Thank you.

I can imagine that's a bad week. How is your son taking it? I know my daughter would be really upset

He's missing my betta, I'm going to look for another soon but at the moment it's too early for him. Thanks

Thinking about adding a school of. Cardinal tetras... I tried out three at first that were from my parents tank and near death so I took them not sure if they just become a snack for my angels. But two weeks and no issues the angels don't even seem to notice them any more. So I'm going to up my school to 12. Oh and the tetras are no longer near death and doing much better in a clean tank. Theyve already noticeably put on some size

I am in the process of cleaning the spare room so I can set my new tanks up. So far I've found a shirt I have been looking for for ages, the important papers my boyfriend thought he lost back in January, and some very useful kitchen tools. Nothing like having three empty tanks in the hallway to light a fire under your butt to get cleaning! Then Monday when I get my car back from the shop I will see what sort of stand materials I can get. Might need a friend with a truck to help, though. Fish room here I come!

Well i now have 5 holding females.. 1 waited until i started removing rocks and trying to clean to spit a few out.. in the middle of soaking my clothes bc my syphon come apart i tripped over my dog who was being nosey and almost knocked over my bucket and fell into the tank :/ thank God everything was smoother then it sounds and all is well .. Took longer then i was supposed to and rushed to throw my decor back in so it looks full on one side empty on the other then just not what i wanted so may be changing it tomorrow although the fish seem thrilled with it

Added a powerhead need to add the other one back in too see lota of progress so far..
