Fed the rasboras, vacuumed for the very first time (it's fun!) and added a new betta! Please help me name him?

^ Ooh he's lovely,I'd name him Bubblegum!


Today was wc day,as I've changed it now from Saturday to Wednesday.It was lots of fun.Button was first,he likes swimming around the top during cleaning,then Peanut,who had a deluxe clean as I gave his plants &and his log & barrel caves a clean and changed them around for something different,which I'm very happy he liked,as he swam through his barrel straight away giving his approval,he also chased the gravel vac,lol.Then it was time for little Piglet,he liked staying up the top today & watched the gravel vac while peeping out from under one of his plants leaves,he also won 1st prize for the cleanest tank!

Fed the fish (new guy is learning to come to the top for food!) and moved some plants around. Figured out that the four plants I bought are mondo grass and are not aquatic! No wonder they are dying. I'm keeping them in there until I can replace them with different plants.

I fed Rakki this morning, then inspected his fins and sat by him for a while to interact with him as I try to do every day. I inspected his bowl to make sure he's... regular (he's had a constipation issue the last few days, but I think he's better now). I also admired his newly-built bubble nest, the first he's built since he was sick early this month. :)

I just noticed an egg sac from my ramshorns. I definitely do NOT want any more ramshorns, so I scraped it off. It was immediately vacuumed up by one of my rasboras. Quick fix, and a tasty snack for the rasbora!

Fed the rasboras, fed Dragon a bloodworm. Vacuumed and did a water change, added 4 amazon swords and java moss. Tied some of the moss to the castle. I hope it sticks and grows! I had a heck of a time getting it to stay, even with thread.

Oh! And I took out the nerite snail and added an assassin to try to combat the ramshorn population.

Today I bought my 1st girl, got her all set up, and did a 50% water change for each of my boys while she was acclimating. One of my boys is a piggy, he had a 100% change 3 days ago and his tank was filthy again.

Currently filling the 125g while DH is working on getting the filtration up and running...
topped off the 55 and the 29g, as water levels were low, and am now getting ready to feed the 35g and 50g.... Next on the agenda who knows????? Hoping that once the Oscars are settled, I'll be able to get to work on once again adding Bettas to the mix!!!!!!!!!!

Fed the rasboras and betta.

Fished out as many ramshorns as I could find, and put those godforsaken creature in a bowl with an assassin snail. So far he has eaten one. Muahahaha!
