Well .. I cleaned out the 2.5's and ran out of water conditioner. Went to the store, and a lady came up and asked me how to feed a betta. I think she was okay with what I told her. Anyway, I had to sort through the bettas just because - some gorgeous multi dragon HMs, multiple yellow VTs, and one lone turquoise DT lady. I had to get her! It's quite rare to see DTs at Petsmart in my area, much less a female. She's currently super stressed out but she's very, very cute :)

Today was the very first wc day for my little Elf! He was brilliant! It didn't worry him in the least.Gave his tank a nice gravel vac & replaced his IAL with a nice fresh one.When I poured the new water in it looked like Elf was playing in the surf at the beach,because he's so tiny he made the bubbles look huge.YAY Elf !!!! An extra pellet for all my boys tonight !!!!!

Was a busy time yesterday:
Got home.
Moved dwarf crayfish out of three 2.5g tanks, cleaned tanks.
Split my 10g moss terrariums into two 2.5g moss terrariums.
Moved 2.5g moss terrariums onto tank rack.
Cleaned out the 10g tank, removing leftover LECA and drainage column.
Scaped the 10g tank with leftover bits of petrified wood.
Split up mass of xmas moss onto gutter guard squares for grow-out, anchored to 10g tank walls with suction cup hooks.
Moved dwarf crayfish into 10g tank.
PWC on 5.5g malawa shrimp/plant grow-out tank, check on berried females.
PWC on guppy quarantine kritter keeper.
Slept.

More business scheduled for later today:
Check PetCo to see if that really nice betta is still there... (possibly put him into the third cleaned 2.5g)
Get home.
Receive and plant stem plants and fissidens for 29g palu-riparium.
More re-arrangement of 10g dwarf crayfish tank.
PWC on 5.5g malawa shrimp/plant grow-out tank.
PWC on guppy quarantine kritter keeper, check on berried females.
Sleep.

These are not at all unusual evenings for me.

Everyone got a water change, and I managed to engineer this with leftover supplies from making my divider.



Not entirely hideous and no more worries about anyone jumping out

I moved it 150 miles. It was an intense experience but Cadence and I are back home and settled now :) (I was away at school).

Fed my boys their breakfast and dinner. Bought a heater at work as Friday I'll be getting a 2 gallon bowl for my newest - still unnamed - DeT that I rescued Saturday night. My coworker saw me looking at the tanks and offered to give me the bowl that she no longer needed. Yay, saving money!

Also exercised all 3 of my boys with the mirror. Didn't let the newbie flare too much though since his fins are healing. He seems to be perking up and getting used to me, which makes me happy to see.
