No. They are beyond the point where they need them and they get in my way while siphoning.

I find they appear in tanks that have or had live plants in it. Anyways try feeding them to an adult fish!

Water changes all done. I spilt about half my bottle of prime though. Great. Money down the drain. At least it was a small bottle! I've also started drafting plans for my shelves (thank you, Sy!). I don't know how I am going to make it work though... I have a bit of an awkward space and may just have a little bit less room then I need. Oh well. Sigh. This hobby can be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo (did I make my point?) frustrating. Lol. I'm sure everyone here gets it! Also planning a few summer spawns. I can't spawn any more until August though, which sucks, but I will be kicking it into gear then and doing a couple spawns that I am really looking forward to.

Lol well, dq, I know now you will have fish soon, and some beautiful ones from Myates at that!

Missed water changes today. Had a rather unexpected busy evening, but oh well. They will survive.

I found a place that sells grindal worms and daphnia in my city. If I buy those and the whiteworm and vinegar eel cultures from bb123, my culture collection will be nearly complete (I would need Walter worms and some other things I am forgetting about). Live foods are great. Fun to raise, great for fish, crucial for fry, etc.

Also thinking about Montezuma swords since I found someone local who sells them (same person as cultures).

Designing a DIY filter in my mind XD.

That's it for now! Good night everyone. I have decided that I am going to limit iPad time to before eleven o'clock, lol.

Just finished reading through your journal. I'm sorry to hear about the troubles you've been having, but it sounds like things are on the upturn (hopefully)! Your journal is very fun to read and full of great information!
