Oh my gawd vanilla anything is delish!
Oliver bites. It's 2 am. Exhausted. Drank an energy drink, nodded off for 5 minutes. Is that normal!?
Bunny is mad because I clipped her nails, Maybe she's mad bc I didn't give her nail polish like bekah ;)
I could never ever ever ever wear those nail things. My nails annoy me enough half the time. I loooove hand cream though, but only because I'm addicted to it and my hands feel like chalk if I don't have any.
In the dark I spied my ramshorns and new ponds sliding all over each other. I gave them extra lettuce and a treasure chest shaped "7 day feeder" thing. My ramshorns are the red kind and I think they're gross but neat :) I'll feel bad feeding their sweet little babies to the assassins (who are getting impatient)
I did not see a 30 inch hood at petco. I seen 20, 36 and a really big one. Sometimes walmart will have them for the 10G but that's the only one they have but for tanks they either have the .5 gallon or a 55 gallon. Not too much inbetween.
and Derpy is still flopping around alot. he's in 2 tsp of epsom and I tried tetracycline and fasting but nothing worked.
for soil based tanks, what do I use? regular potting soil? I'm thinking soil may be better for the snails since they came from a lake. I like sand though
You might want to order a hood online then. Both Petsmart and Petco have free shipping over $49 and I think the prices are the same. That's strange Petco doesn't have a 30".
Organic potting soil is what most people use as a soil base, I think. For you, you'll need to make sure there aren't any heavy metals, especially copper. Snails are sensitive to metals just like shrimp. You put down about a 2" or so layer of soil and then cap it with 1" of sand or gravel. For a setup like that, crypts, swords, and some stems like wisteria, rotala indicia, ludwigia repens, and bacopa will work well. I've never tried this myself but I think Silverfang has and I know kfryman has. I used Seachem Fluorite, which I don't really recommend. Every time I so much as looked at the tank, it clouded up.
Poor Derpy. Has he pooped or is he still bloated/weird even with pooping? Try bumping it up to 3 tsps of epsom per gallon. API Furan-2 might help him. I don't know. I'm kind of in the same situation with my boy Stumpy. His belly is bloated, he's been in 3tsps of epsom for a week with IAL and fasted except for a bloodworm just to see if he'd eat. No poop, no improvement. I can't tell if it's a blockage like Train or not.
What a great 6 or less hour sleep. -__-
I blame you, chemistry! Not my own lack of ability to prioritize things properly!
I don't get how to tell when my tank is planted enough to avoid cycling... Just gonna buy a bucketload of plants I guess. xD Hopefully I can get my little threadfins soon! Though I should wait until after exams o-o Posted via Mobile Device
