I'm scared. D: why didn't anyone tell me this earlier T_T

found him....


poor thing. I guess he made his way up the lucky bamboo sticking out of the tank T_T

So I'm not sure if the water params were out of whack or he really rebelled because I didnt feed the community for 1 day....

The rcs still seem happy

do you leave random bags on the floor or did he manage to crawl into the box of ziplock bags and crawl in one... if it was the later, i'd have to tip my hat to amanos for their persistence.

I had a random bag on the floor under my tanks from trying to bag something...

Lol. If he wanted a new bag, he'll need to find his way from my room into the kitchen, climb up to the drawer. open the drawer and climb into a bag oO

If anyone sees me looking for shrimp other than pfr, don't sell it to me. LOL

A random question (didn't want to create a thread out of it): does anyone know if petco/petsmart carry substrate? Like maybe eco-complete or flourite??

Ugh. Missed a water change due to getting back so late and feeling sick from the storm, was going to do it this morning but then had to run around like crazy because my big rabbit also decided to get sick so I had to pack her up to take her to the vet - did it just now and ARGH. I can arrest the development if I do the daily poop vacuum. Miss a day and it starts to encroach again. I need to do a bigger water change, I think. I should just get the water change hose even if I only use it to refill the tank after draining it. Running around with a two gallon bucket is NOT cutting it.

Spec, hope yours is doing better. I wonder if I should add melafix now, it's bacteriostatic ...

Maybe you should plant it with inedible plants.... like anubias and giant swords and stuff...
