Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

LOL


First post is today. :)
All of the platy fry I ended up with are now gone except for the 4 with deformities, which I will be keeping. Right now they are in a dinky little Kritter Keeper. :P Since I wanted them to have a better home, and I have been wanting to experiment with live plants for a while now, I got a topfin 5.5 gallon kit at petsmart today. It's going to a NPT. I also got some topsoil and gravel. I also got the plants today. They are moneywort, hornwort, and water wisteria. And I got a black mystery snail. The snail is in the 5 gallon with velvet and usain bolt. I need a runner to name this snail after!! The tank will be set up tommorow morning. I hope I get some hitchhikers from the plants. Then I will have plenty of snails!!! Tonight is for pizza and movie!!!

Youtube vid, showing the tanks and other stuff.

Monarch looks like Sunset did when he had fish TB. Could just be bloat. :P

I set up the tank today. It took me about 2 1/2 hours. LOL The hornwort is getting on my nerves, as it looks kind of ugly. But I do love the moneywort. ;)
I can't wait to put the fishies in, I just need to buy a heater, and get my water tested, then the fishies and snail will be in!! Speaking of the snail, it is awesome. Awesome. He/She was zipping around the tank like crazy last night. Completely came out of it's shell too. Literally. LOL Now he/she is just chilling out now.

Forgot to meantion, that yesterday I re-arranged the plants in Velvet's tank. The tank looks so much better. But, while doing this, I got so caught up in the new tank and Velvet's tank the 10 gallon looks like a bomb exploded in it.

Last night when I got up from watching TV to feeed the fishies, I daw Usain on top of the mystery snail. LOL I hope he is just cleaning off the new snail's shell. O.o

I'm pretty ticked off right now. I have been wondering why my platy fry haven't been growing quickly. The heater hasn't been working for over a month. I had no thermometer on the tank, and I reasured the temp before I put the thermometer in the 5.5 and it read as 71. ._. I am definately returning it, I hope I get my money back. A 10W heater should DEFINATELY be able to heat a 3 gallon KK. Good thing it doesn't work, as I am going to be buying a heater for the 5.5 anyway, so hopefully it'll lower the price.

I have been kind of lying in my signature. LOL The fry are currently in the KK and the mystery snail in Velvet's tank.

The platies are in the 5.5 gallon. I have put a hot water bottle on the outside of the tank, and it has kept the tank a steady 77F for the past few hours. :)
