My neighbours are the BEST! One of them saw my mum attempting to score and snap the Plexiglas, then offered to cut it and did so in like five minutes! He's so amazing! Neither of the Plexiglas pieces fit right width wise, one is a little too thin and the other much too thick and slanted, but now the lid goes over top! My wrist is just dreadful once again. This morning it was severely swollen and throbbing like crazy. I can't work tomorrow, since I don't want to further injure it. I work 12.5 hours this weekend, which is what murdered my wrist. God, I hate it.
Anyways, the boys are in the 30, and soon the girls will be too. I'm selling one 10 and keeping the other for QT and sick fish. Also because you never know
Yesterday I left the lid off of the 30, and when I got home and put it back on, ONE OF THE EGG CLUTCHES HATCHED ON MY FLOOR. I quickly scooped the babies up and tossed them in the tank. I figured they were all dead, but they fell on the driftwood and this morning they were gone
I would have figured they were eaten, but there are no fish in the tank!
So sometime soon I'll be getting the BNP, which I'm very excited about. I also discovered in moving the fish that one Oto died, which I'm okay with. I mean, for the amount of time I had them and how sensitive Otos are, this is pretty good that I only lost one. I'm thinking that when I get the BNP I'll be getting another 1-3 Otos, keeping it between 4 and 6.
The light on the top of the 28 hex is broken. Not the bulb, but the entire fixture. The button is rusted stuck (we've tried everything) and the wiring is all screwy. We're trying to find something either at PetSmart or on Amazon, and I'll be making a thread about it soon in the Planted Tanks area
I'll be taking tank pics soon!
