Moved my 10 gal QT/adult assassin snail/extra plant tank so I can use a heater in it. Outlet it was using also ran a standing freezer and a small ice maker. Couldn't run a 150 watt heater without running the risk of blowing a breaker.
Going to hopefully find 4 kuhli loaches and an amano shrimp at an lfs tomorrow.

I don't know if my Bolivian ram is gonna make it. He is wobbly when he swims and keeps getting pulled toward the filter. He is so so thin.

Can you turn the filter flow down?

I wish. He did manage to swim a little so he's on the other side of the rock and there is no current.

On the other note the German blue is eating and seems more perked up. And my baby bettas are settling in, even though there have been multiple cases of nipped fins as they figure out who's dominant (Skylar is)

If you have a hang on breeder net try putting him in that and trying different foods.

My family and I moved in with my parents on July 1st since our lease was up and we are trying to buy a house. So 9 days ago I moved all my tanks 20 miles across town. Fast forward to today and I realize the reason why I had been thinking my 29g looked funny. The 10" long piece of slate that all my java moss is attached to is MIA! It made the move but never made it inside the house somehow. Out of curiousity, and a little fear, I walked outside to the truck that I haven't been in since we moved and looked around. Found it! My moss covered rock laying in the back floorboard inside a plastic bag. Still wet, still green, doesn't stink, and appears to have grown some?! 😳 This stuff is crazy resilient Attachment 275015

I tried. Yesterday I fed him bloodworms, flakes, and mysis shrimp and he ate a little of each. This morning he ate even less and tonight nothing.

When I redid my 75g a had a rock with tons of Java moss and even after it dried out (after a few days on aeration) it still was just as green and healthy looking as if it was alive.

It's tuff stuff!

Getting pulled to the filter means they're pretty much done in my experience. Perhaps he'll recover, but he's in rough shape if that little flow is bothering him.

Yep, he's still alive this morning which is good.

My fish dug their own cave under the new driftwood. The shark and the pleco hang out in there. The sand has completely expanded their hiding place inventory.

Got an amano shrimp for the 29, plant x (identity reviled in my thread), frozen mysis shrimp for the 75, an assassin snail for my breeding project, and a piece of spiderwood for my 20L.
LFS I got everything from is looking for new hires, and I will need a job when I go back to school so...

Nice, I agree vinegar is amazing even though I scribed my brothers old turtle tank for half and hour and there is a tiny bit of water mark left. Here are before and after pics.

My Bolivian ram is hardly breathing and is stuck to the filter. The German blue hasn't left his side for hours.
