I got this picture of Paperclip the other day. I thought it was pretty nice and showed off his colors well. I can't wait to get the girls into the split 10 G so I can get better pictures of them. I'm waiting on the binder slip things from amazon so I can make the divider, of course I ordered the one from the UK so It'll be a bit before they get here. I'll have lots of left overs so if anyone needs a divider, let me know. haha


I hadn't seen the new snail since I put him in the girls 10 G. I was getting worried that he maybe died, and that I wouldn't be able to find him since he's smaller than the substrate in there. I searched and searched and searched. He was no where to be seen. Finally after a day or so I pulled the tank away from the wall and turned it around. There he was, eating algae off the suction cup behind the filter. Enjoy it now little man, soon you'll grow too big to fit back there. Ah snail life. I've decided to name the new snail Giovanni. I thought it was a very regal name for a stowaway.

How did paper clip get his name?

Sorry if I missed something that mentioned that, I just read that and just about died from laughter.

Lol I guess I didn't mention it. My friends mom asked for a paperclip but she said it funny and my friend loves weirdo random object names like that. Since I promised she could name the next fish after I wouldn't let her rename Daria to Fork, she decided on Paperclip. I went with it since he was silvery when I found him, even though his colors have since saturated. She wanted to name Giovanni Toenail and my sister wanted to name him Booger... I have odd friends.

I bought some flourish excel and more moss balls at petco yesterday. Slim pickings in the betta section and everyone was just in sad shape. Lots of babies I had to stop myself from rescuing cos I'm already slightly overwhelmed by the four fish and the four snails I already have, and I simply don't have the space.
The binder clips for the 10 G divider finally came in today! I set up the divider in the girls tank. I'm gonna let it sit for a little bit and hopefully I can get them in there soon! I can't wait!

I cut my bangs last night.. I cut them too short... EVERY TIME!! Sigh... =_=

I was pruning my new aquarium plants last night after that last post cos I noticed the Gold Coin Anubias was getting some transparent goop on it from dying foliage and I noticed my Amazon Sword has a mermaid tail! I'm so stupidly happy about this. hahahah

Today is tank scrubbing day. Gonna deconstruct everyone's tanks and give them a good cleaning.
I keep finding new snails in the 29G from the new plants. Sigh. I'm gonna have to find some homes for these guys..
I really want to put the girls in the split 10G but the divider is making it so the side without the filter isn't getting filtration.. I feel like I have to go buy two 5G filters so they each get adequate filtration and aeration. I only have the one heater but I feel like that should be okay if I put it in the center.
I want to move some one into the living room but there is no space. I want to put Paperclip in a better tank but I don't have a nicer one that bigger than what he's in. I want some one to go in the 29G but I don't know if it's too much space and there's not enough plants in there yet. I keep seeing maroon EE and I want one despite feeling slightly overwhelmed with the 4 I already have. I want to do all these things but I don't have the means or funds to do any of it. I'm FRUSTRATED. AUGH

Here's something cute I caught Paperclip doing the other day tho.. I walked into the kitchen and saw him curled up and resting on the thermometer in his tank like a little puppy. LOL. Have any of you seen this?? I never had and I laughed so much!

I removed all the imposter snails I could find. They're currently in a jar.. I need to figure out how to kill them. I'm hoping if I keep up on removing the pond snails and ramshorn snails that came with my plants that I can avoid a full on invasion. Part of me says I'm deluded. lol


Poor Paperclip has not been well. Yesterday morning I noticed he didn't want to eat. So I let him be thinking he'll eat dinner. When I got home from work he was laying in the floating plants I have in there. Still didn't want to eat but he moved to behind his heater when I tried to feed him. Fins clamped. This morning he was laying in his plants again. Did not want to eat, although I was able to get him to eat one pellet. I had to leave for work but as soon as I get home I'm doing water tests on everyone. I really hope he wants to at least eat when I get home. Sigh. Poor sensitive boy. I wanted to bring him in to work but I don't think he'd handle the move well.

I keep forgetting to update this thing...


Everyone is happy and healthy.


I've started counting everyone's pellets when I feed them because I've noticed that if I just feed them until they stop eating they eat waaaaaaaay too much, the little piggies. I believe that's why Levi and Paperclip would have those on and off not feeling well days. I think they were constipated. Now that I've started feeding them less they haven't had a sick day. Here's hoping it stays that way.
The girls are still not in their divided 10 G. I haven't been able to find two 5 G filters for each side. Has anyone had success having one 10 G filter for a divided tank? When I had the divider up it seemed like the side without the filter wasn't getting water circulation.. The day I had set aside to move the girls I could see a film on top of the water on that side. so I removed the divider to get it all circulating again.. I don't know... I feel so bad that their temporary tanks have lasted so long. I'm ready to have 2 less tanks to clean too. I drained and scrubbed everyone's tanks the other day and when I was done my back was aching so much.
I think I want to put some body in the 29 G but it has little to no coverage as far as plants so I fee like I'd have to buy more of those before I would feel comfortable putting any one in there.
I keep seeing pictures of maroons Elephant Ears on pinterest and I want one so bad but I think 4 fish is enough.

I forgot to mention yesterday that I found a nip in Levi's tail. I'm hoping it was just one chomp and doesn't become a habit..
