How is that bad news? Look at the bright side, you get the fun adventure of rescaping your tank! As long as everybody made it safe, I'd put that in the win column. Quick question, how long is winter break (being a dumb hick I ain't never been on one of them there fancy arsed winter breaks), was it really long enough to warrant a move?

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

LOL very funny.

I wish I didn't have to move everything. But it is 4 weeks long and they turn power off in the dorms.

It is kinda sad cause when everything moved around I guarantee someone got crushed or sick and will die it always happens.

The rocks uprooted and wether I squished a snail or a shrimpie, it makes me sad.

You know with a pair of bolt cutters I'm pretty sure we could turn that power back on O.o Unless it's the box with a built in lock, then you'll need a hammer and chisel. Btw if you get caught I promise to bail you out of jail

Oh if only I could. But I need the month away from school lol.

I did learn some things.

I'll be putting all floaters in a cup and maybe putting all my inhabitants in a cup. Either that, or I'll put the movable objects in a cup then reassemble.

Damnitall. Woke up this morning to 3 shrimp in my filter. I have NO clue how they get in there.

I could understand if they were getting into the filter with the moss hanging down, but they aren't!!!!!!!

All three were Tangerine Tigers, but I rescued 2 of them. One was dead already.

I'm trying to drop the TDS a little for the TTs. I'm at about 200 right now. Or is that decent?

The good news is things are kind of calm otherwise.

Here are the other pics I promised.

It is called deep blue professional! They're a cool little company that doesn't realize a bunch of people love using their tanks for freshwater.


Thanks lol

Hey y'all time for a little update.

More or less there is no update, but everything is running so well.

Big shout out to H4N for really getting me a quick solution to my former problem. If you have a filter that needs a prefilter on the intake, I recommend his. They're sleek.

My old problem was shrimp somehow kept finding their way into the backs of my azoo palm filters. Well naturally, they got back there, discovered it wasn't paradise, and they tried to escape. It was too late for escape, however, and they got sucked into the impeller and chopped to bits.

I lost a total of three shrimp getting into the one filter, and I believe they were just climbing up the water stream.

In other news, the parameters are perfect, and everybody is doing well.

I guesstimate I have 10 little least killifish babies running around, and one is nearing adulthood.

I really enjoy watching this tank; it's nice having a tank where I know the inhabitants are happy.

Next post will include pictures

So I decided to do little shots of the focuses of my tank.


This rock brings the two sides of the tank together, and it features some nicely filling in mini pellia!

This is the palm tree perch, where lots of shrimpies have a time share. They love to sit under here and on the cool little cliff. This is Anubias nana petite.

This is the mountain on the left, it has mini Xmas moss creeping up it, and it houses a little resort on a cliff for shrimp to hide in :P.

Ahh the big prehistoric fern lol. This is a nice crypt. It is filling in nice, but the damn thing won't stay rooted.

Here we see the moss bridge, which so conveniently links the two mountains. It features nice Xmas moss, but you can also see a nice shrimp flying to work past it.

Tank is looking great, I'm glad everything is going good. Are you going to have to move it again soon?

Well hopefully things will go better this time. I am about 80% ready to start transferring stuff into my new tanks, think I should start a journal?

Do shrimp flying through water make you smile?!? Yes start a journal.

I hope things go better, too. The spec is easy to move as it is taller, but this is a nightmare. Especially since I don't gravel vac, the debris gets kicked up lol.
