I struck gold!!! Only $15 :dance:
They had two left and one was PERFECT in every way, perfect size, marking and coloration! He is about 2.25" right now.
here he is in the bag;

and in tank;

He is currently in a 10 gallon, but will soon be in a 30 and eventually an 80 gallon!:fish1:

What a beautiful fish and a nice Star. That is really an amazing pattern and coloration and I think that's quite a good deal. :thumb:

Well got a little more room in the house and fish closet. Sorted out a few more things and got a bunch of items to a new home!!! :thumb:

I'm doing a quick pwc on the TT shrimp tank and refill water to the 12G.

Fed the snails yesterday in the 12G. Still no fish in there, will be deciding to get expensive locally, or nice tank raised stock shipped in (Green Kubotai) with a couple other things to make the shipping worth it (problem is usually the online supplier doesn't have all I want at the same time :/).

Yesterday removed a few Bristleworms from the SW nano. It is running nice and clear and I didn't put anything new in there.

Still need to go pick up about 10 gallons of SW with 5G of RODI and get the tank water changed out over a week. I found my little leather is looking rather sad still and has been for awhile. Thus the change in tanks and locations. Moving him to the brightest spot and thinking just getting the water nice and clean should help too.

Planning for a couple Rock Flower Anemones and a rescape, hoping to find a few macroalgaes too.

Fun day today. :)

Thanks, he is pretty nice looking, far better than the other one they had.

:thumb: on the personality thing, one reason I'm willing to devote a tank to him alone if needed. It's like having a pitbull puppy in a tank LOL.

He has been watching me a lot closer than I have been watching him so far.:fish1:

Added Fancy Guppies, males, to my tank of endlers and catfish.

First one they are in the bag.

Second one is one of the fish in the tank.

I finally caught the big guy yesterday! :dance:

I had put the rock he was hiding in into the 75g tank's sump for three days; noticed him wedged between the rock and the baffle, so I raised the rock out of the water and...

Sploosh! He must've decided water is a better medium for him...so he dropped off and into the sump.

After putting the rock back in the 29g, I simply peeled him off the side of the sump.

And this is where the story continued.

(Ignore the part where I'm reaching for a towel behind me...)

MLHoenig 02-14-2016 06:11 PM

All I did today was a 30% WC in the 29g and 10g WC in the 75g...

Shopped for 2+ gallon size glass jar containers for a possible RV shrimp tank. Have a couple ideas, but not a firm decision yet.

Boesemanis both have damage to their sides, I think from the Angel but not absolutely sure if they just "play" hard or what? I have seen the Angel attack them but then it seems he is peaceful and the next day damage!!! Might need to put the Angel into the spare tank for awhile and see how it goes with any new damage on their sides. New females are coming soon.

Rainbows spar when fighting for a mate or dominance which can cause bodily harm and occasionally death which is rare.

Doing a second water change on both tanks to lower nitrates, ei dosing as is, will be too much for my tanks the added potassium nitrate is sky rocketing my nitrates, doing water changes to reset, then will be lowering my macro input to see what happens.
