Set up the 5.5gal. Got the heater and the filter flow dialed in.
My pure ammonia should arrive tomorrow. Then I can begin my first ever cycling attempt.

I moved my fish around so they don't get bored! I moved Parli into the other side of my divided ten gallon, moved his former neighbor into my 2.5 gallon, and moved my other crowntail, Percival, into Parli's vacated side of the 10 gallon. Now I have a ten gallon tank devoted specifically to my beautiful crowntails!

I am ordering a 5 gallon tank for Penfield soon. :)

So! My college buys in bulk the TopFin baggies of plants, it was Cryptocorynes undulata 'red', each year for the Biology students in the Life Sciences' Bldg to show basic microscope techniques. Now, there were six baggies (2 opened) in my lab. I asked what would happen to the plants not used and they were just going to be tossed out. D: So I asked for them and lo' behold: I am swimming in C. undulata. I've only planted the two already opened plants in the Critter Keeper, gave one away to a friend, and now I'm down to three baggies. No idea what I should do with these. XD

Also, Kasper likes his new plants much more than the Mondo Grass. I just see his dorsal fin now where he's sunk himself into the plants.

(Re-posting this from my fishblr too.)

75% water change this morning due to really nasty, cloudy water. (Params were all in line, it just looked terrible.) I forgot that the red cherry shrimp wouldn't eat as much as the ghost shrimp and overfed. Oops. But things are looking a little better now.

Water changes for everyone today! I also need to go to PetSmart and get a bigger tank for my new delta. It's clear the 1.75 gallon KK is too small for his activity level. Maybe a 3 gallon (I'm running out of counter space for anything much bigger).

I just put in a new moss ball for Mr Bubbles and its the first one he's seen. It's really fun to watch his reaction to it. I can't figure out if he's in love with it or afraid of it. He just gets really close to it and stares, and stares, and stares at it. Really funny! He sure is a curious little guy.

Today I did a water change for Earl, and fed him. Yesterday my dad got new water conditioner. "Splendid Betta" is what I'm using now. ^-^ Earl seems to be warming up to me. He's currently in a jar sitting next to me why his tank warms up!

Did a 50% water change on Kasper and I noticed he had something dangling under his chin.. turns out that after I cupped him (slippery little stinker too!) it was piece of rotted root that had hitched a ride on him as he cruised through his plants. I think I've scared Kasper enough today, he's not happy that I had to cup him to see that goofy bit of greenery attached to his chin.... he is sulking next to the heater.

Set up the new 2.5 and added a small dragon to the 1 gallon and moved my new boys in! They're both loving their new homes.
