So, I got a few things today that I had ordered. First.... a spray bar!! Pretty excited. I wasn't sure if it was going to fit my canister or not when I ordered it, but it fits perfect. I just wish it was a little longer, but I'm sure I can get an extension. It's so nice not to have that one big blasting current stream coming out of the canister. Here's a couple pics
In the background you can see where my dear Edith has taken to ripping the crypts out of their pots. Not something she was really doing until just recently. Between her and the brown algae invasion those poor plants have really taken a beating.
I also got my fishmate f14 (I believe it was sakura that recommended this one), I bought the Eheim Feed air (or whatever it's called) so that I could feed Puff his jumpstart in lots of little meals throughout the day when I am gone at work, but I hate how variable it is... sometimes 2 pellets come out, sometimes 6! So, the fishmate is nice because you can put in exactly how many pellets you want to come out at each feeding.
I am hoping that since Puff has been able to handle a diet of primarily jump start for about a month now, that he will be able to handle some other pellets as well once he goes back into the main tank. If he can, then my plan is to give them 4 small feedings of pellets during the day using the auto feeder and then they will get gel food at night
Here's a quick video update of Puff. He gets slightly floaty at times still, but nothing like it was before (crosses fingers!!) I can't wait to get him moved back into the main tank, but am also pretty nervous to do so.
My last bit of news is that the microscope I ordered also came today. I was super excited to try it out, but lo and behold the screen did not turn on (it has an LCD screen to look at instead of an eye piece). I am undecided if I will order the same one again. It didn't have great reviews, but I bought it anyway because I really wanted one that would take pictures and this was the only one that I could find that people said would work with a mac! So, I am on the fence.
