Today, and yesterday, I painted one of my walls black, got new dressers for the aquariums, and got a new desk. First, I had to get rid of the old cabinets and move the tanks somewhere else temporarily

Yesterday I took my first batch of platy fry to my local fish store. It was my first time ever selling and I was super nervous. Would they like them? Would I "do it right"? Would the fish transport ni

When I started the day I didn't have the intention of setting up another tank...but I needed a place move a pair of Apistogramma nijsseni to. I watched Cory's "Getting Started with Aquascaping" live s

I finally put plants and water in the 20L. The water doesn't look great right now because of the bubbles and I cleaned the filter media from the 40B in it to help the cycle get going. Now... what fish? By the way, the new MarineLand Pro filters are pretty much silent. 20L.jpg.a6a1f72bccfdbfe9311fdebbeef9c388.jpg

Dealt with consequences of a mini-flood. One of my internal filters had an existential crisis, self-amputated its waterfall attachment and turned itself into a bigger-than-this-tank fountain. At 3 a.m., so no one would notice. Luckily, the fish (and I hope the downstairs neighbors too) are fine and my floors are now extra-clean.

As I was rooting around in my 40B for the next delivery of Cherry Shrimp to the LFS tomorrow I happened across a baby Panda Cory that has made it to be big enough to not be food.  Cute little feller. Pretty cool. No pictures, it's pretty fast and I put the blob of Java Moss back so as not to stress it out. Netting out Cherry's is a bother in a heavily planted tank.

IMG_20210120_084744.jpg.8936d0fda5b27c91d687873d072a9a08.jpgit all started a year ago my daughter 2years old wanted a tank , now we are here a year later , today we added two snails to the community and a grogu ( baby yoda ) to watch over them , all plants from the co op . Yes I know I need to clean it up but left it dirty so the snails can forage while getting used to the tank , she loves her fishys and keeps calling the shrimp lobsters and it's hilarious

I got my order from Aqua Huna! It came two days earlier than predicted so I had to rush to get all the tanks ready. Adding minerals, testing pH, and making a tub into a quarantine tank because I hadn’t disinfected my 5 gallon yet.

I got amano shrimp to eat hair algae. Finally!!

I also got a new school of cardinal tetras. Currently I only have two tetras and that’s not enough! So here they are, named after my mom who got me an Aqua Huna gift card for Christmas. Introducing the School of Dr. Neidecker!

I had an eventful day today. When I was about to head to the store to get fish for my 10 gallon I noticed one of my otos in the 40 breeder had a pretty bad fungal infection. Went to the big buck store to get a cheap quarantine tank and put the oto there with antifungal medication, but I don't think he's gonna make it 😔. I'm keeping an eye on the other fish in the 40 gallon in case there's another sick one.

After that I went to my LFS and got me a pretty cool betta (my first one!) and some celestial pearl danios for the 10 gallon. I'm excited about these guys!
