SFA's Journal

Decided to start my first journal!
(I keep fighting the urge to post lots of photos of my tank, but I'm not the first one! lol)
I currently have a 10g tank in use for my only betta right now: Lago. When the dollar per gallon sale comes I might get a 30g and split it into 6 different tanks, but I don't have anymore room in my house so I have to find room >.>

This is my first ever journal so it may be a little shaky or whatnot
(The picture of his tank is an old photo. I will upload a newer version later)

So today I checked on Lago to see how he was doing after the 25% water change. Turns out my little buddy became stressed when I was moving around his decor and nipped his fins. Now I'm just going to keep an eye on him.

Going out today to get some new AQ plants and some API Leaf zone (Fingers crossed that it's in stock!) and new root tabs (Mine are running out. Oh bother) from Petco. I'm also going to see if I can get a new light for my tank so that the plants can get more light than what they are.

The light+bulb:

I really want to get these plants:
-Duckweed
-Pearlweed
-Java Moss
-Guppy Grass (Naja Grass)
-Peacock Moss
-Marimo Moss ball
-More amazon swords (^^")
-Water Wisteria (Saw some at Petsmart -must buy oAo)


Update on Lago:
His fins are already healing! :D He seems really embarrassed by the damage so he hides from me when he catches me staring at his fins. Lol.

I would check on the peacock moss, if it is the peacock fern, Selaginella wildenowii that is not an aquatic plant. It's designed for terrariums and won't grow completely underwater.

Duckweed is very invasive I've had it before and didn't care for it at all, so I would consider whether you really want to spend money on it.

Java, Water wisteria and marimo are really nice in my opinion.

The light I was using for the aquarium broke. Turns out that the manufacturer was careless enough to build the lamp with a 60 watt when the max was 40 watt. Lucky that I was home when I saw it break! Now I'm going to toss away the useless thing and since I wasn't able to buy the clamp light yesterday I will tomorrow (If I don't procrastinate about it)

Bought a snail today (Apple snail). Since I got him from Petsmart it's being quarantined for a good 3 weeks before it joins Lago in the 10g. Hoping it lays eggs later in life though! This way I can have at least 6 snails in the tank and then give the rest away (If Lago doesn't eat the eggs. lol)

So I will not be adding the apple snail to Lago's tank for fear that his aggressiveness may end up killing the poor snail. So I am now going to stop trying to sell my 2.5g tank and will be setting it up for the snail and maybe 1 or 2 guppies (Both females). It will have a soil substrate and live plants. I will also be adding a small piece of driftwood to it as well.

Getting everything for breeding the two CT's ready. Only was able to get one black CT female (The male I wanted was bought)Spawning tub is 66 quarts and I have three 35g grow out tubs to separate the spawn into three parts if necessary.
I am currently searching Amazon for a submersible heater, BBS eggs, and a sponge filter. (Yay Amazon!)
