I got a 50 gallon tank, WITH NO MIRROR!!

So, ive switched over the tanks, rescaped, got some new plants, and have no idea what to do with the mirror backed tank!
Anyways, here are pictures of what id done to the 45 before i took it down!
45 gal with sand and dollar store leaves.jpg

And THIS is the new tank!

Also, i picked up some cories! Tree salt and pepper, four green and was supposed to get four albino, but got one free, cause his back is bent. I got them from petsmart, so theyll be in QT for about a month.

[[[add more pictures]]]

I upgraded my fry tank to a 5.5, and added sand to it, heres what it looked like before sand and plants, and after.

Also, added sand to my new bettas tank, who ive names Little Finger. Heres a few of his tank!

I rescaped my other bettas tank as well, since it was akind of rag-tag tank, but it looks alot better now!

I also did the QT tank, though kept it minimal as much as i could, cause it is a qt!

[[add pictures]]

I found one of the feeder guppies in Tyrions tank is missing an eye! No poofinedd, no fungus, acting normal, just sans an eye! I snapped a picture, though the feeder gups are really skittish.

So, been away for a bit, kind of discouraged with my 50 gallon recycling, and my apple snails dying. Turns out, even if all the dollar store plants are fully covered in plastic, rust still happens, and WILL KILL your inverts.
And plus, i added some of my original fry, that are finally grown up, in the big tank, and thats what caused the cycle. Sigh. So, i removed about 200 baby fry [i know, i had no idea there was that many], and moved them to a ten gallon. Then i removed most of my adultish fry, and sold them, 10 dollars for a dozen!! and only kept three males, which are amazingly colored, will take pictures! =]
FINALLY, the tank cleared up, but its not like guppies are going to stop breeding, and i still had cherry babrbs in QT, so i decided to take the pristellas out of the tank and into thier own tank til my petstore can take them in. I added the cherries that were in QT, to the big tank, since we like them better.
So i removed ten fish, and added four, which cuts my bio load down even more than removing the fry.
I will have to do a weekly fry catching, as i have no idea when the females are giving birth, they always look ready to pop!

So, now i have three fry tanks. My boyfriend isnt pleased, since we adopted out my ACF to get rid of a tank, and i set it right back up again. 0.o hope my lps can take these pristella soon!!

Haha, Lyzza. . . I've been wondering about you! I was actually thinking of sending a message earlier, but thought I should check your posts first, of course I haven't had the time. Sounds like things have been up-and-down over there lately. Hopefully everything is sorted out and under control now. You were so all about breeding those guppies. . . I'm sorry, but it makes me laugh! Glad you were able to sell some off, that's wonderful! I had trouble even giving them away. Please keep us posted on how things go over there! Best of luck!

Looking at my last post, so much has happened!!
Things are alot more settled down, and im able to enjoy my tanks for the first time in a while, without stressing.
So for my update, ill start with furries first, starting with the puppies!

The puppies are doing great, though there has been problems. They are terrified of leaving the house/yard, and literally are scared ****less by leashes. [Toby fead pooped.] Its been difficult, and since both pups are to disctincgtly different, maggie being outgoing, alpha, though easily scared, shes easier to handle, and more like a 'normal' puppy. Toby on the other hand, is what were calling "a bit autistic". He is wary of everything and everyone, and will twist and squirm and run from you if you try to pick him up, or even go to touch him. He does like to be pet though, only on his terms. My boyfriend and I sit on the floor and talk to each other, and Maggie will come up and crawl in our laps and give kisses, cause shes a real cuddler. Toby will sit in the crate for how ever long he feels he needs to for it to be 'safe'.
Then hell stretch out, and lay half in and half out. Then wiggles out and sits just outside the crate, leaning on it. During this time, if you look at him, hell run back into the crate. Hell get up and quietly move around to your back, and peek at you. Then he nudges you, and if you move, hell run, so you stay still, and hell start licking you. He gets really happy when he licks, so we let him do it, even though its a bad habit, i see it as any love from Toby is good love. If you slowly give him your hand, low to the ground, he might lick you and let you touch him, but never an overhand pet. He really enjoys being pet, as the more you pet him, the more playful, and comfortable he gets. He starts playing with you, and loves his face rubbed and scratched. He actually likes you to play with his feet, and he gives kisses like theres no tomorrow! But make any move to grab him, or restrain him, or sudden movements, and hell bolt, and it all starts over again.
Problem is, my parents dont have the patience to do what me and my boyfriend do. Theyve never dealt with 'special' puppies before, and treat them like regular puppies, and that scares them! Ive tried to get my mom to understand that what she does scares the pups, and she tries to not do things, but sometimes shes so unaware. And my dad is a loud guy who talks with his hands, so that automatically makes them scared of him. Which is horrible, cause te reason we even got a puppy is for my dad, and now we have two, and their scared of him! Hes really down about it, but were helping him every day...
Anyways, heres some puppies in Jackets!

Heres the puppies at their saddest. Leash Training.

Saddest puppies in the world.

But seriously, they have gotten so BIG! They are both bigger than khodii, toby by a good three inches!

And then Theres Khodii. What a derp. =]
Puppies Maggie n Khodii on bed derp.jpg

He recently got clipped, so he went from looking like this:
Doodles fluffy face.jpg

to looking like this:
Doodles a long nakie dog.jpg

Yeah. Big difference! But the puppies make him so DIRTY, and he needed a clipping before winter.
But Khodii is a cold puppy now...

And finally, for all the fuzzy pets, theres Rainbob, my kitty. Hes a big ol grey tomcat who i raised from a kitten, and was supposed to be an indoor cat, but when i moved my mom let him outside. He got the taste for freedom, and now prowls the neighborhood in search of other cats to beat up. Hes still lovable and sticks around our house, but you rarely ever see him. I always hear his tags though. =]
Anyways, he came for a visit one day, and i hadnt seen him since before we lost lilly..So, i took some pictures..=]
