I started the heat treatment on the pictus cats. Tank is currently 74 degrees and the heater is calibrated to take the tank to 88. We shall see how long it takes.....

By 7:30, the temp will be up to 80 degrees - that's a 6 degree shift in 2 hours.

Two week heat treatment is complete. I'm sure these little psychos can't wait to get into a bigger tank. Just a little while longer....

Picked up 7 silver dollars at petsmart for the new 125, as well as a couple new pieces of decor and a new bulb for the betta tank.

Started the heat treatment on the silver dollars.

The chocolate cichlid got beaten up, so I moved it to the other 125 to heal, and also to grow. I suspect that it has grown to a size big enough to register on the chanchitos radar. However, it's not big enough to hold it's own yet, so I will grow it out in the other 125 and then re introduce once it's the same size as the chanchito. From there the chocolate will only get bigger.

Doing water changes on the big tanks.

Yesterday I added some new decor to the new 125 and switched things around a bit. I'll post a video later.
