Did water changes on the two 29s and the 20L. I'm just now acclimating the congos.

Heat treatment has begun on the 29 with the rainbows and denison barbs. I'll start the heat treatment on the congos tomorrow.


These congos are from a fish store I did not know existed. It was an okay little store. Nothing really I'd go back for except more congos, since they were 2.59 a piece.

One of the new turquoise rainbows died the other day. Little 1.5 inch fish - I could smell it as soon as I walked in the apartment because of the 88 degree water. I had a feeling it was going to die - separated itself from the group. The little denisons and rainbows school together. They've got some growing to do to catch up to the ones in the 125, that is for sure. I've been feeding them both, plus the new congos and the silver dollars NLS growth formula 2-3 times a day. The only ones I'm really worried about are the congos - I'm not adding them to the 90 until they start to show their mature coloration and finnage. I'm pretty confident that the congos in the 90 are too big for the bichir to catch and eat. Especially now that the java moss is not there to provide an ambush situation.

So I put the rainbow in a zip lock and froze it. Gonna return it tomorrow for a refund, which I will be putting into PUPPY FOOD!


I have a little experiment going. I dried out a big ball of java moss (not on purpose). I set up the 5 hex and put it in there. There's a good chance the 5 hex is gonna see some action in the near future

Haven't done anything fish related, though I am going to add the barbs and rainbows in quarantine to the 125 tonight. That leaves 2 empty QTs


The dried out moss is doing just fine.

I didn't move them over yet - forgot.

Umm, what's in store for the tanks.... I don't know. I have a credit from an online fish store so I will probably take a look at what they have and use that up.

I really should do water changes today... No idea how long it's been - ill have to check back in the thread. I've had the puppies for more than a month now so I know it's been at least that long.

Woo, you're running behind on water changes even for you! Hop to it. . . maybe we'll see some spawning loaches this evening?!! >.<
How are the lil' pups doing? I don't think I've heard about them for a bit - am I missing a thread somewhere around here filled with adorable furry cuteness? Please tell. . .

Can't wait to see what the next new arrivals will be :)
