I am going to test Rusty's water parameters. Yesterday he had a high ph read near the purple range on the API Water-test kit and his ammonia level was 0.50 ppm which is the light green color on the API Water-test kit. I know from posts that ammonia levels should be 0 ppm at all times. His nitrite and nitrates where all 0 ppm. I also added a teaspoon of AQ salt to his 2.5 gallon tank to see if that will bring down the high ph level. I don't know if AQ helps. I am sure someone will reply to me.

I got everybody's water parameters checked at the LPS (they loved me for that... took 25 minutes >.<). Everyone except Esmeralda was a smidge high on ammonia (Sherlock was actually quite high... I won't say how high, just that he got a 100% WC and that the little guy was NOT happy about it... so I hope we're good now). Tycho and Esmeralda got 25% WC's and Cassini got a 75%, so, here's to less ammonia.

Also, I got my little lady shark a snail. She's got some algae, Tycho's adjusted well to Rowan, so... we're going to try. I hope I didn't just buy her a $3.49 treat. I might even wait to see if he survives the night in her tank before naming him. :S

Sherlock is getting a 75% WC and Tycho a very careful 25%, so I don't mess up his first bubble nest. :P

50 % w/c, driftwood scrubbed and cleaned, gravel vacuumed, plants trimmed, glass scrubbed inside, filter media cleaned, trimmed the tops off a couple of java ferns and added them to his tank and what did I get for all of this? A nip on the side of my hand. Little bugger LOL!!!!

He's busy making a new bubble nest now

Ugh. Both tanks 100% WC, cleaned plants, decor, and driftwood, etc., scrubbed the tanks clean.


Boys seemed to like the cleaner place.

Set up the double nickel as a feeder tank until the angels are ready to be moved, then feeders will go into the hex and 50g and the Angels in the 55..

100% WC for Sherlock and for Cassini. 50% WC for Esmeralda and for Tycho. I let Sherlock flare at both Tycho and Esmeralda, and it was highly amusing to watch them exercise with each other. :D

I REALLY like reading what other's are doing with their tanks!

I added the 2nd divider to my long 20g so the separations are all done and grabbed a 'spare' plant from the 10g so there's a plant in each divided section while I cycle it.

Also did some water testing and re-arranged the plants on Spooky's side of the 10g so he has more of a 'forest' to hide in instead of just a wall of plants against the divider.
