I will for sure, there is a brown film coating the sides of the bag.

Regretting buying the two tetra species (neons and black skirts) now. Under a dimmer light they would probably be a lot better, but not under my light. Wish I went with a GBR pair and a school of celestial pearl danios, but whats done is done and I live with my choices.

I have used one light for 2 tanks - somebody just gets the night turned to day for awhile!

Well I got 2 new fish today!

First one is a test subject for the JD tank. A male convict cichlid. JD is still the dominant one so far.

And a fully mature male angel. :) he seems to like my younger angel and they are swimming together which is a relief.

Using API liquid test my readings where- pH8.2, NO2 0ppm, NO3 5ppm, NH3/NH4 0ppm. In my DT I get a pH of 7.1, and the last time I checked the tap water it was 7.5.

They where drip acclimated for almost 3 hours so I don't think they died from pH change. I'm at a loss for what killed them besides bad stock.

Oh yes! She has chased him out of her spots a couple times already. He's found a cave she can't fit in. Funny thing was in the tank he came from he was the dominant one.

My Convict is a jerk. Considering rehoming it. It fights my green terror a lot, to the point that the GT hides under the filter overhang. My jack dempsey doesn't give 2 craps about the GT though.

Wife has been wanting a blood parrot for awhile. After scouring local LFS and petsmarts, no one had one that she liked. Found this guy today at our fav store, paid a bit more for him in comparison but happy wife = happy life.

Beautiful, my local Petsmart has parrot cichlid x convict cichlid hybrids.

PassengerTN 05-13-2015 06:47 PM

One of my petsmarts hasn't had any in months, the other petsmart has them but they are small and haven't colored up yet so the wife didn't want them. They're $10. A LFS has them for $9.00 but they didn't meet the wife's standards either. My fav local store had these for $22 :/ a little high but they're a better quality fish

Great news! My convict seems to have made an impression. He has colored up and free swimming. Jack chases him a bit but that's to be expected. She doesn't care much.

*sigh of relief* :D

I don't really know much about their compatibility so I don't know if this will help but have you tried moving some stuff around? Maybe it's a territory issue

Thanks I have thought about it. I plan on trying to redo some on the next water change soon

I got my shrimp pellets in.

I went snorkeling over a reef in Belize. Saw all sorts of fish- hardjack, grouper, tangs, saltwater angels, and more that I don't know, a green turtle, and swam with up to 9ft nurse sharks. I didn't have my underwater camera, but my wife took pictures from the boat with me and the sharks.

That sounds like a mighty big fish tank you were swimming in, lol!

Yesterday pwc on 16G QT, doing pwc every other day to make sure water is good.


Here is a pic of one of the Salt and Pepper Cories.

Here is the DG enjoyong the new home in the 72G tank.

https://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...cture68887.jpg

Angel pair one spawned again on their favorite leaf.

Getting one tank moved out of the house today, moving the inhabitants to a new tank, though probably a temporary one until I get the substrate in the other tank and move the SW out of the 12G and build a lid so the FW fish don't jump out.

And pwcs.
