Hahaha.
Sakura, just start doing a mix between your water sources.. 1:4 for a few weeks, 1:1, 3:4, then full strength of indoor water eventually.

So my Kindle Fire went dead and wouldn't do a dang thing. I tried everything to no avail. Then, I called customer support and they said they'd send me a free replacement Kindle Fire within two days. I am impressed with that.

Olympia, okay. I can try that somehow. Thanks. :)

Bekah, I don't know. Maybe the king betta intimidated them? One's still climbing on the glass and the other two jetted out of sight by now.

Crabby, yay!

Gonna rehome the kuhlis. The hardness is at 10dgh now, probably too hard for them. I wonder . . . I might have to move the swordtails back to the 29gal. Gotta check and see what params dwarf loaches tolerate. One source says honey gouramis aren't fussy but I wonder if 10dgh is too hard for them too. I'll keep an eye on them for now. They poo a lot but they're cute so I kinda want to keep them. And by poo a lot, I mean, long strings of the stuff, sometimes 2" hanging down.

No clue about the loach, but I think the gourami will be fine in there.
Hehe, yes transitioning Sparky over to softer(?) water should be interesting (and a long process). Is that more natural for him, do you know? Or do electocats just not care about parameters even?

I finally caught up with backposts from a few hours ago (I was at band practice, guard had sectionals, I'm tired) My bf is coming from NY tomorrow, I'm excited. Its been six months since I've seen him. :3
ohohoh sakura were the snails you talking about the ones Bekah sent you? :D

I read electocats aren't fussy as long as the water is clean. He'll probably zap me or something. "Whatchoo doin' to my water, woman?"

Just read in one book the loaches can go up to 12dgh and read in another that they prefer soft, acid water. o.O Greeaaaaat.

Oh, sure. Now that I'm getting rid of my cories, now they decide to come out and play in the open.

EDIT: Hi Jen! How did sectionals go? And yup, those are the snails I got from Bekah. I was pretty bummed when I thought they might be dead.

Hahah zzzp!
Yea, parameter stuff isn't set in stone.. They do prefer soft acidic water, but chances are your loach were captive bred in near neutral water, and therefore more tolerant of less natural conditions.

I hope so because I'd really like to leave the swordtails in there. They're so pretty. Wonder if I should put the fry in too or keep them in their own kritter keeper.
