Rough day, came home to one of my neons almost black and swimming on it's side. Went to remove him and it outsmarted me. I really don't want to break down the tank to catch it. But on a more positive note, I found the shed of my largest ghost shrimp.

Lol, I have 10 tanks- I maintain them all by myself, my hubby won't even look at them. My husband has fought with me because between my fish, his dog ;) and the kids I don't spend any time with him... It's pretty funny, huh?

After a cruddy day at work I came home to do my normal water changes on both tanks. I walked into a disaster in my 29 gallon! Here is some info: Originally I had 4 julli Cory cats and 3 had died off, so I got 3 sterbial Cory cats to keep the remaining Cory company. My feeding days are Mon,Wed and Fri. On monday, all 4 cores were happy and feeding. I came home today to find that my last julli was in the left front corner half eaten. He must have died last night and someone had a pretty good meal:(

How long did you have the Sterbai. What do you think it could be?

I am so sorry about your babies.

Woke up this morning to find my apple snail on the floor next to my tank. Sadly it was too late. I'm assuming the 5 ft fall is what killed him. Broke one of the glass tops on my tank so it wasn't sealed off. Guess I know what's next on my list.

Yea I knew they came out if water to lay eggs and what not, but I never expected for it to climb completely out and jump to an untimely demise.
