Yesterday each tank got a 50% water change and a filter cartridge change. I tried to get an algae wafer to my snail, but Tycho decided intercepting and gnawing on it was the way to go, so I'm debating cupping the snail for his weekly algae wafer from now on.
Today, it's just a feed the fish and monitor tank conditions day.
So, technically yesterday now, but Tycho got an 80% WC after I noticed him doing a lot of yawning, and his anubias plant decided to melt overnight on me. He seems much happier now
Today (well, after I wake up) is probably a day to go grab some more betta water from the LPS (the tap here is HORRENDOUS), try not to shop (my bank account cannot take my splurging on fish supplies... no really Eva, the fish are happy, you do not need to keep buying things, not like they will all fit in the tanks all at once anyways, crazy!), and then do a 25% WC on Esmeralda's tank...
If I walk out of there without buying anything else though, it's going to be a miracle. Shop till drop. 0_0
Setting up a tank for #9, Lotus ... he is a blue/white butterfly rosetail/doubletail with the cutest little white lips ever. If my camera was working I'd show him to you ... but stupid me, I dropped it in the waste water bucket :(
Esmeralda's tank is probably untouched today, as her ammonia level is still reading 0 (The anubias, and my slightly less messy way of feeding her so there's less food waste is paying off).
Tycho's tank will be getting a 60% WC, and some gravel removal. It hasn't taken me long to realize I really do not like gravel, so the next few WC's I'm going to be slowly cordoning off sections of his tank for gravel removal. I like 'em bare, or with those large round glass shiny things.
Cassini's tank will probably go untouched today. He's still acclimating, and while small tank = lots of water changes, he's been exploring, hasn't touched the algae wafer yet, and I see no snail poo. I'll start his every other day WC's tomorrow. He's sleeping on an anubias leaf right now... -dawwwww-
Well yesterday actually,it was wc day for my Mako boy,I cleaned some algae off the glass with the magnet cleaner and Mako zoomed around everywhere,he's so cute. After his wc I was sitting in front with him & tried to measure him and when I put the ruler near him....he flared for the very first time,just slowly & calmly (as if saying - what's this thing?),not in a cranky way or anything.Squeeee!
