I ordered a sponge filter, a 9.5" Finnex Stingray LED clip light, a 20 pound bag of Caribsea Black aqua soil, and 2 peices of driftwood to finally set up my apistogramma tank. I also ordered two squares of flame moss for my 55g.

Watched the end of a snail gobbling Assassin snail's breakfast. Then remembered to get my little Horned Nerite out of that tank, moved to the 12G.

Added a filter and Chaeto to the SW 6.6G Edge. Found the bristleworm peeking his head out but I couldn't get my plant tweezers in time before he retreated into the rock. I know they aren't bad per se but I don't want it in there. I even tried baiting it out. Added some shells for the Hermits.

Moved the little Aquafarm tank which just has plants and some snails, out of my doorway where the light comes in.

Added the little Peppered Cory into the tank where his friend were. His spot appears to be gone. He was happy to be reunited.

Moved the last container of misc plants out of a tub and into the Aquafarm tank. Dumped out a container of moss that had died. Did general clean up in an attempt to finally get the mess from the tank rescapes - cups, planting tongs, tubing heaters, air pumps, I just have one bucket of snails, I will be dumping into the algae vase, and into the AF I think. I hate to just kill them.

Put some sand from a emptied tank in the utility closet to dry out, its warm in there.

Found the tinyist Cory Habrosus dead in the Mr. Aqua shrimp tank. so only 3 left of 6. Not buying any more of them from that store.

Oh yes and found an amazing fish locally which I will probably stock into the 72G

And I am thinking of some Green Dragon plecos. This breeder has the brown ones, but I think the green or maybe even yellow might be pretty sweet.

Odessa barbs are awesome! Love the colors on them.

Found several baby crypts, and other plants in my 40g which is running with plants, a pleco, an upside down cat, and two kuhli loaches. Also my African butterfly jumped during the night and I found him about 4.5 ft away. Looks like he landed on my bed first bc there are scales all over the bed which means I probably rolled onto him which in turn makes me feel super guilty about it

On a good note though my male apistogramma is showing off a lot and the female is starting to take intrest. I will probably leave them in this tank and put shrimp in the tank that I originally planned for them.

Removed most of the water sprite from my 55g as it was blocking the light from the aponogeton crispus

Hadn't done it yet, but it's what we change day, trim plants, and time to clean out the filters.

I am working on that. I didn't want to add too many inches at once. I may get 2 little ones next time to build up. Cause I will get a couple of fancy guppies too at the next trip.

Found a dark brown shrimp in my Chocolate Cherry tank. Thank was good.

2 more feedings of Prazi food for the fish.

On the last leg of cleaning my fish tank mess, couldn't finish last night too tired!

There is a bit of wire mess from the extra 2 tanks that have water but aren't being used, need to work on smoothing out the jumble. Soooooo close though. Getting a little bit more done than I planned so it is taking longer for that reason too. Things are wiped down and cleaned up :)

I have one resin decoration which has Java Fern growing on it and I don't know what to do with it right now. It doesn't really fit anywhere. hmmmmm?!?

Looking at Rock Flower Anemones for the SW tank. Decided I need another shrimp and was shopping for Macroalgae options, seems some are "out of season", I guess being wintery there are less options than I would like.

megi-lin 02-08-2016 02:40 AM

Added my new bubble wall. And moved plants.

Aaand had a fish die.
