Lovely, lovey news!!! I'm so happy things are looking so fabulous for your new arrivals! Sorry I was mostly absent yesterday, sick babies :(
From what I've seen on TFK, most people don't seem to clean their test tubes, aside from a rinse in tap-water. I never did it until I came up with tests that didn't make any sense because of chemical residue in the tubes. Now I've made it a habit to clean them after each use. . .it at least eliminates one possible explanation!

I hear ya! Feeding new arrivals always takes a bit to get the hang of - more bacteria for JIC is always
better, I think! It'll be fun for you to find the balance between the Badis, Cories, and . . . whatever. . . fish?. . . you're getting today, too. I always have fun feeding my tank between the greedy Tetra at the surface, who are way easy to overfeed, the frog, and all the bottom dwellers! It always takes me a minute to figure out a new system that works for everyone when I add new fish. At least you'll become super familiar with the newbies' needs while they hang in QT!
I'm glad, really
glad, that somewhere between cleaning tubes, adding media, and more plants that everything is looking exactly as perfect as can be! I AM ENTIRELY TOO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!
I hope everything comes together beautifully this afternoon, and the new babies arrive safe and sound!!!
