I'm getting a WHOLE bunch of tank stuff in the mail today -- hopefully it solves a lot of the setbacks I've been having and just about completes my aquarium setups. It's always a work in progress, but it should take care of the big issues like dividing my new 10 gallon again. That will free up the 2.5 I'm using as a temporary home for Gaston and I can get another betta...hehe. :D

The bettas:
Romeo - HM male | Tzekel-Kan - DTHM male | Nemo - CT(?) male | Akio - DTHMPK male | Ares - Delta male | Diablo - SD male | Nameless - VT male | Nameless - DT female
The others:
The Fab Five: Green cory catfish | Maximus: Golden mystery snail | Ichabod & Rosa: African dwarf frogs
Swim in peace, Gaston.

Today I checked water params (Ammonia 0.35ish, Nitrate 5ppm, pH 7.6) and therefore did a water change with another scheduled for Friday.

Did 2 water changes, topped off 3 tanks and started planning what to do for my mostly empty 10 gallon to turn it into a river-like hillstream loach tank.

I clipped a bunch of plants and planted a brand new bowl with a stand and light to take to Stone's mom for her birthday. We took her a betta and a snail to choose what she wanted in it and she wanted the snail and will decide if she wants a betta after she gets used to taking care of the tank and tons of plants in it.

We think she and his dad liked it but aren't entirely sure, got to love the parents.

Today we did our first 100% water change! He took it pretty well and afterwards I put his new heater in. He seems to like it, although now I feel like I have to constantly be checking his tank!

Getting my two filters for the divided tank. Sponge filters did not work because my cats kept chewing the airline tubes. >.< It would have been a great solution but this should do fine as well. Everyone gets a 50% water change tomorrow!

The bettas:
Romeo - HM male | Tzekel-Kan - DTHM male | Nemo - CT(?) male | Akio - DTHMPK male | Ares - Delta male | Diablo - SD male | Nameless - VT male | Nameless - DT female

Fed the fish, added floating plants (whoo!) and completely ignored it for the rest of the day. The algae is tomorrow's problem. :/

5.5 - Xerxes. Divided 20L - Henrietta & many snails.

Just fed him today. With my new tank I'm still not used to it not being dirty in some way. The filter does great and the water is crystal clear. I decided to set up a schedule where I do a vacuum/water change twice a week to keep him happy and healthy.
