My stem plants are dying off. I think it is the different water. I am letting most of it float in hopes it well get use to the new water and recover so I can replant it. I also got a few new plants for the tank. I bronght some of the water spirit from my friends tank. I gave her all that anyways and it taking off in her tank. Some more crypts, a java fern and some water lily bulbs.
Left my camera at home. Well get hubby to bring it tomorrow when he comes to visit.
I also put some of the cyp
The 30 gallon tank is looking so much better. New growth. Less algea just looks so much better now. Going home this evening and get to stay for 24 hours. So water changes for home tanks and I get to sit in front of them staring. lol
Going to see if I can set my cam up on the oscar tank. Not sure that well turn out cause Ill have to Zoom in a lot. Guess Ill see.
Pictures on the forum later today of the 30 gallon.
I just could not stand the tank with Angel in there beating everyone up and really disliked the divider. So Angel was taken to the mom and pop fish shop in return for some flake food. I also ordered some more BN's since all of mine are gone.
Ordered 12 if I ordered just 6 it was going to cost more. lol So Ill grow them out in the 30 gallon that is with me and then move a couple to my goldfish tank and let my friend try them agian. (She still has one female left from last ones we got.)
No pictures of it yet cause I didn't have my camera with me. But you can see him/her somewhat on my webcam. Solid while goldfish. Sold as a Ryukin but to me it looks like a fantail. And ya I skipped QT. Just not home enough to keep an eye on a new set up to qt the fish in.
Ill get some pictures Saturday when I go over to move my 30 gallon over to my sisters.
I know my husband is trying. But when over half the food that he feeds is still in the tank the next morning you would think he would have a clue.... Both my loaches are dead. One for at least a day the other one maybe this morning. Karma and the other two fish in the tank still look fine.
I did a 90 percent water change and cleaned one filter. Ill clean the other one when I go back tomorrow to check in on the fish.
I put the divider int he 30 gallon. Gave the four betta and the other two angelfish the larger side and put the pair on the left side. Cam is down right now but it well be back up this evening and you can have a look.
Now I need some moss to grow on the divider so it looks like it belongs. lol
Shhh don't tell but got me a couple frogs and a dragon scale betta for the 5 gallon to go with my three shrimp.
Got to get that angel pair out of the 30 gallon and I don't want to give them away. I also don't have time right now to make a divider for the 75. Mostly I would not trust it with me not there to keep an eye on a homemade one. so here is the plan
Get a divider for the 55. Move the oscar and pleco into the 55. Move the firemouth and two loaches into the 30 (it can handle the bioload and there is a nice spot the firemouth can hang out in and feel like it is his) Put the pair (Angel and Buffy
The angels look really rough this morning. Chunk missing from the veil tails tail. Looks like the Oscar or the pleco got a hold of my black angels side. So they are back in the 30.
I have found a divider for the 30 but can't find one for the 75. So might just get that one Friday and dived the 30 gallon tank.
Also figured out what is going on with my cam. My upload speed is way to slow. Hubby is going to upgrade my internet. In the mean time I have changed the settings in hopes it well stay
Turns out from watching them that the angels had paired off. My black angel and striped one have been bulling the other two. That is why they are not growing as fast.
So did the only thing I could think of. Moved the two larger angels to the oscar tank. Need to see about adding more hiding places but seems to be working out ok. Going to pick up a few more clay pots.
Come home to find one of my female bettas dead. I was suspecting a problem. Just not much I can do from my sisters. I have already removed my favorite one and put it in the 5g all my sisters. So that leaves three bettas. Not going to buy more at this time. Just hope they do ok in the 30.
Moved the loaches back to the 75 gallon. Moved the goldfish out and drained that tank. Added over half the gravel from the 55. Filled half up and drained again. Now doing to fill up with warm water an
Did a water change on the tanks while at home today. I also fixed the web cam so the goldfish are easier to see. I can even see the spots on Cam.
I forgot my camera again so once again no pictures. Hubby wants be to order a cable extension so I can put the web cam on the oscar tank sometimes. I went to price them and I can save 12 bucks ordering it online. So maybe it well be here next week.

Well tried to embed it. Does not seem to work. lol
It had better focus when I first started think it might be cause it is getting dark.
Today the nurse comes by Daddy visits for lunch and the maid comes in. So I try to go home a while. Do water changes visit my other critters...
Well the 55 gallon tank was only 68 degrees. Not good at all. So I go and get a second heater for that tank. By the time I left is was up to 72. I can live with that but hope it goes up more just not too much cause I am not home to keep an eye on it.
Anyways I went to get the heater and yes I had to look at the goldfish and yep I found the most per
Went home for a while today. (still there right now.) Lost anouther fish in the 55 so now both my BN's are gone. It seems hubby is WAY over feeding and the plants just could not handle the extra. So now my water spirit had died off so much I removed it so it wont mess up the water anymore and I am doing a huge water change to get some of the gunk out. Even shimming over the top of the rock bed to remove extra food.
I showed him again what to feed and hopefully he well cut WAY back.
Last Tuesday I did a huge trimming on the water spirit. Hopes to make it get thicker. And my angels are growing up without me. They seem to be growing really fast. Guess that is cause I am not there but once a week.
Plan to get tons of pictures to share and for me to stare at during the weeks. It is so silly how much I miss my fish.
My husband really is trying. But the fish are mine and I just have not been there to keep an eye on them. Stopped by today to pick up some warm cloths and Bentley was gone. Hubby said last night he looked fine but that does not mean he realy did.
Foster looks fine. But who knows.
PS I brought my 5 gallon tank to my sisters. Getting some algae. The 55 is thriving with the neglect. Not even getting excel. The 75 looks fine too. Going tomorow to do water changes.
I went home last Thrusday and plan to try and go home a while on Tuesday to do water changes and stuff. But all I do is worry. Hubby never really looks at the tanks so I worry Im going to come home to sick fish. But so far so good.
She was in pain and wanted me there to fix food and stuff for her till the pills kicked in. She got a good nights sleep Sunday. I spent most of Monday there washing her dogs and stuff then come on home yesterday evening.
I got quick movies of goldfish tank, the 5 gallon planted and the 55 gallon planted before the sun got up good. Hope they are loaded up by the time I get home this afternoon. Ill try and get an oscar tank movie this evening.
Hope all is having a great fish day.
Be back late
I know way to early but I am at my sisters and keeping him in that 5 gallon worried more then moving him in with Foster. Hubby says they look fine but plan to go by and look in on them tomorrow if I am still staying with my sister.
Foster is much more active now. I got some prazi yesterday and used it. But I think it is the salt that is working. Cause he has not been exposed to anything to give him parasites.
Bentley still has not ate anything. Or at least not when I put it in the tank. But I see him/her hunting threw the rocks so maybe he does find it that way. Hope he figures out pellets soon. lol
Can't wait for QT (but I well) want to see if Foster likes his new friend.
So got some meds for Foster and while there this white fantail I have seen there for three weeks now just jumped in the cart and come home with me.
No pictures yet. But I well share them later.
S/he does have a slight deformed tail but I just loved her/his eyes.
Took my three male guppies out of the 5 gallon (they were only there to make sure tank was cycled.) They are back in the 55 gallon. And now the new goldfish is in the planted 5 gallon. Only plant he might eat I got lots of and can
Has been a little under the weather. Nothing I can put my finger on. Water is fine, (ya ya but this is not DND so not listing it. lol) But he seems to have lost some weight even though he eats.
Salted the tank. Doing every other day water changes and feeding more. Seems some what more active but until he puts on some weight I wont know if I am helping him or not.
I have no idea how old he is. I am sure he is over 3 years old.
Doing all I can. Now just got to cross my fingers.
For now. I was thinking of getting one but really shouldn't cause Foster is a common and in a 29 gallon tank. Really don't have the room for a second one. So going to stick to keeping Foster alive and well.
55 is recovering nicely from the algae. I have all lights on a timer and I changed the afternoon lights out to an extra hour. Did some trimming to remove algae and added some more water spirit.
Got my five gallon set up to QT a tiny fantail goldfish. Have not seen one I like yet. Really want a white one but well see.
Going to do water changes on all tanks today.
