Dill Pickle & escargot

Ok I'm starting a journal to ramble about the tanks.

Dill is getting some blue highlights on his ventral and caudal fins. He is such a pretty guy.

I'm really happy to have beautiful LSP snails once again in my tanks.

I am hoping these are yellow snails or jade. I am thinking of just pinching a piece of each clutch for hatching and destroying the rest.

Dill loves the moss tunnel thanks to @Kaxen

I really want to get rid of my albino cories. I let my kids pick them out and I really prefer the darker kinds, but really I would rather have almost all inverts in my tanks. I contacted a guy about more cherry shrimp.

School is really unpleasant right now. I have made As every semester and I hope I do the same. It really stresses me out because they changed curriculum so if we fail we can't just make up a semester - we are just out on our rear. I don't think I will fail but the thought is always there.

I am really getting annoyed by olAf the twin tail. He has been hanging in the back of the tank and he takes his sweet molasses time coming out for feeding. I am busy and impatient right now so after I dunk fish jello, veggies, and flakes in there he has had time to make it up for his pellets

I crushed my first snail clutch from these new snails (looked like a dud after a week). I crushed part of the second one and am incubating some of it. Then yellow snail outed herself as the mama and laid a tiny nickel size clutch which I am just gonna let hatch in my tank.

Dill is getting darker in his black spots. He's so cute.

I am trying to change my cleaning day to Thursday from Saturday and nobody seems worse for wear that we are overdue. I'm under stocked so it helps

I caught the yellow snail as the mom of these clutches. I hope she bred with the lsp- would be an interesting clutch. I don't need 100 yellows!

Dill seems lonely in the 10 with snails and shrimp. I think he enjoyed harassing the other fish. Suck it up buttercup!

I have not named the new red koi yet. Still taking suggestions. I like cute names not regal ones.

One of my friends kids is wanting a small pet and I offered to give her Olaf and a purple snail. I am relieved because they are a great home and he just glass surfed the 10 and hid in the 20. He will have a 2 gallon and I think that will be good for him. I had bought extra snails just for this little girl (fellow snail lover).

So nice for offering Olaf. The name sounds perfect for little kids, my niece is obsessed with that movie. :)

Is the second picture one of the purple snails? Those are cool!

Not exactly altruistic - Olaf needs a smaller tank and I don't want to run a third tank (well except as grow out or hospital )

These are the purple snails feasting in a cup

And here is the mama laying eggs (she's actually very bright and pretty but the lifting was bad

I think these were all yellow?? Not sure. I might have some jades but it will take a few days to see better since they are sesame seed size. These hatched in about 10 days - a record!
