I cut up a sheet of frozen, whole bloodworms into small enough cubes that the fish can eat them all before they go bad in the fridge. Everyone got blood worms today. The guppies got crushed pellets, and I put some lettuce in there for the otos.

I bought a breeding net for the guppy tank and ordered some java moss as well as a lid for the new 5 gallon. I fertilized the 5 and 10 gallon tanks.

The replacement filter came in for the 10 gallon. One of the smaller java ferns plants seems to be making its climb to the top of the water.

The guppies seem nice and curious and friendly. I'm beginning to think one of the females might be a male. It's really hard to get a look at her anal fin to be sure. Both of the females are rather slim and young right now.

I got a good look, and the second female was indeed a male. I took the bigger male back to the store and traded him for another female.

I did my normal everyday feedings in my two tanks and noticed that Betta Ray Bill was hiding in his grass. Well I fished him out and discovered that he had myco(is that the right word?) We had to euthanize him it was so bad. Me and my daughter were very upset by this. We have finally named our girl Anx(pronounced like the word ankh with an s at the end.)

Well today was my full water change for Vince. I think he likes it because he makes a bubble nest a few hours after, maybe not, lol. Well he gets it any way. I added a couple of plants to the mix, checking those out, live plants that is, salvinia, and red root. I ordered a few almond leaves. Will add those at next water change. If they come in. It has gotten cold here but tank temp. looks good. I have a heater and digital thermometer, plus house heat is on, so things are looking good so far. I have had him for three weeks.

My condolences. That disease hits super fast. I hope you have lots of time to play with Anx.

Water change day for the 33g community. Added four more panda cories - they are so tiny! About third the size of adult ones. Way too cute!

Planted tanks and cute fish - Sparky, Squirt and Lumi.

Today I got hit with a huge disappointment. Picked up my live plants, gravel, some driftwood, heater, thermometer, and the tank for it all, a Fluval Spec 2.6

Got home and...



Broken out of the box 8C I was so excited to arrange everything too. I'll be getting a refund tomorrow, I had to hunt down a LFS that actually HAD one of these... petco is just too careless with their products. Makes me really mad on a 70 dollar tank. Hopefully my plants with be okay in bags for 24 hours.

Many fish live in our hearts instead of our tanks
