Today I finally got those Puntius Denisonii out of the tank! Those suckers are fast and intelligent! They learn fast and act accordingly to avoid being netted. Good grief I was frustrated after 15 minutes! They are gone
I brought home 4 tiny Kuhli Loach. That's all they had. I want a total of 8, possibly 10. The kids were beaming from ear to ear. They love these fish!
I also picked up a huge piece of Mopani DW and rinsed it several times in the dishwasher and now it's soaking in a bucket. Will repeat the dishwasher and soaking until the leaching is minimal. This method really speeds the process up 10 fold
My husband would kill me if he knew his sweet wife put the wood in the dishwasher LOL! Tomorrow he's off and will have to see it done
I replaced a T5 Actinicbulb with a T5 HO 6500k bulb. My Angel is still blue! Yeaha!!!
I did some shifting of the manzanita and planted the rest of the stems and other plants. Tank looks horrendous right now because I have all the Anubias floating waiting for their place on the mopani dw.
Unfortunately at lights on this morning, I found the Tiger Lotus melted at the base of the stems where the main stem connects
The leaves were floating. I left as is by some chance it will spring new growth up from the roots. Fingers crossed everyone! Most the E.T. plants have melted overnight too.
Here's some pics showing the tank as is tonight, and the plants, Kuhlis and Mopani
The Manzanitas re-arranged
Terrible pic, but shows the "slope" for some stem plants at the base of the Manzanita
A lot of melting
He's still blue without Actinics! Also have some algae beginning on the wall; noticed bottom above the substrate on the right side.
The whole disaster scene LOL! The airstone kicked up a couple plants I had planted..oh well
The Mopani! This is an awesome piece IMO. Can't wait to get it in the tank!
