  1. Replanted this new one a bit, and fed baby brine shrimp
  2. Work has been too demanding for weeks. We had a cold snap a couple weeks ago and i lost about half of my tub fish. I failed to check the weather 😔. So i made an emergency evacuation of the remaining tub guppies from my porch to the garage and they’re doing fine. About half of those tanks in the garage weren’t heated but the garage is insulated and the tanks are next to a big south facing window. Algae galore! But the guppies are fine. Then I decided to soothe myself from the guilt of guppy death by adding 2 new tanks in the house 😃 The top tank is my first time using actual plant substrate (partial) and the parameters are so different from all my others that I’m nervous about that. Right now both tanks are just cycling with plants 🌱 & snails 🐌
  3. Great idea, Odd Duck! Keep us posted on your progress, please!
  4. Stunning pictures! Wow! You’re all so skilled at photographing your gorgeous fish! I pulled up some of the pond boys today after forcing myself to wait these past 2 months or so….and i was very pleasantly surprised! It’s hard to get just exactly the color in your imagination onto the fish!
  5. I love ❤️ them! I’m glad you kept 2! Thanks for posting the extra pics, I’m crazy about guppies! 😃
  6. Thank you for sharing! I just found your journal tonight and enjoyed bingeing the saga of the sad bowl, although I empathize with your disappointment. I hope you have a rejuvenating vacation. Folks in the medical field have my highest respect and gratitude 🙏 Thank you. I wonder if you’ve considered going low tech? No filter, no air, no heater? Just concentrate on scaping and getting the plants happy & growing for a month or two before introducing any livestock? It may be a nice challenge!
  7. The platinum one! 😍 More pics please 🙏
  8. I love 💕 reading about your adventures. Thank you for sharing both your disappointments and triumphs! I loovvveeee all the pictures, too! Please keep sharing! I’d love to see more pics of your blue & green guppies!
  9. Welcome, Pattie! 😊 Did you confirm your tank temp? Maybe I missed it. You said Buddy hangs out at the top and at the heater. It won’t explain the tetra loss, but maybe Buddy is looking for more warmth. I hope 🤞 things get better soon ; you’re in the right place for help & support. 🙂
  10. Guppies 😍 A moscow male and a couple of my muttly line females.
