This is the start of my tanks/tubs journal.

current tanks 20 long planted, 10 gallon pearl danio grow out (D. albolineatus), 75 gallon for the pearl danios(I don't have all the stuff to set it up plumbing, lighting, hardscape, gravel), 10 gallon qt with pair of kribensis, 2.5 gallon tub for holding some cherry shrimp until they start breeding, potentially (I don't have it yet) a 20 long for the kribensis, 10 gallon reef (I don't have all the equipment for it and who knows when I will 🙄) .

I will post picture tomorrow or over the next week? (I am lazy so it takes a while 🤣).

I plan to breed the kribs and shrimp (not in the same tank btw) to sell and hopefully buy more tanks, plants, etc.

the 20 long planted tank My 20 long hopefully jungle

Just a thought... now that you have ducks and because ducks love to swim, I think its time your parents let you start digging a hole in the ground for a pond!

I tried they said no 😔 also I already have too many unfinished projects(reef, 75 gallon, 2.5 gallon). currently(not right now) they are using a kiddie pool

I moved some plants around and added moss(not shown in any pictures or videos) in the 20 long. I added a terracotta pot to the 10 gallon qt other than that I nothing is happening, I am about to propagate my anubias 

this krib really doesn't like the phone IMG_3075.JPG.44f5eacb4ceb8da48ac81ad837f99bdd.JPG

ok so it has been awhile since I have posted. but I am back. long story short: I lost all motivation for anything so my tanks were looking horrible. TLDR depression go brrrrrr. 

so I did a lot of tank cleaning yesterday and I tested the water(it was the normal results no nitrate, high gh, kh, 7-7.6ish ph). the tanks are looking a lot better. I think all the kribensis babies got eaten while I was on vacation 😢

I might post a picture later if I remember(so probably no)

I bet a lot of us relate to the depression, or other mental health issues. You're not alone.

No nitrate makes me wonder if the cycle *might* have crashed. (Of course, your plants might have just chowed it down.) Maybe check ammonia, just to be sure.

Sorry about your kribensis fry. 😞

for most of the tanks lifetime it has had zero nitrate(except for when it had almost no plants). also I am adding a lot of fertilizer(3 pumps of easy green 2 times a week) so I don't think the cycle has crashed but I will be careful. 

I'm am thinking about taking my last kribensis to the fish store and getting a betta(or more cories and tetras)

I have had the light for 1 or 2 weeks and I really like it. I got some amano shrimp for my rimless 2.5. now a question could I put a trio of endlers in the 2.5 when the plants grow some more? 

I have two Sparkling Gourami in a three gallon unfiltered, heavily planted tank. It’s stable, but hard to keep clean. My hunch is that Endlers have a higher bio load since they eat and poop more.
