If you dont have any, i'll give you some calcium clay next time. also add an airstone to oxygenate the tank to ease their transition. this practice generally works well for acclimation. Test gh/kh

Different genus, species, might even be different order. Not closely related enough.

I have the clay powder still. I used mostly water from their tank, hoping it would stress them out less.

Theoretically yes but they won't. I've kept small groups of both together and nothing happened.

Dart might need antibiotics anyway. Displeased with myself.

Worked out a new bed for the wallaby, though.

New plan: tear down 20 gallon, treat Dart there.

I think ghost shrimp might even eat your RCS. They are occasionally aggressive.

I dunno if I mentioned that the sickly-since-July comet Goldie passed away.

I am going to name the two remaining fish, who, my qi gong students have noticed, are thriving and visibly growing bc I switched them from horrid Wardley to Omega One food when I took over their care in July.

I installed the automatic feeder last night, and tested it 3 times. It worked twice. Once it turned but the door didn't open.

Will see what's going n tomorrow after I teach foam roller self-massage/ abs class.

It's hard to tell at first, but becomes obvious later on as the claws are distinctive
