General blog entry



I got a lot of plans for today. I am in need of doing water changes. I am not trying to find an excuse or blame anyone, but since the whole ordeal with my poor puppy girl having cancer, I have considerably neglected all my fish :(

They are being fed only every other day though, so it shouldn't harm them that I am a few days behind with the water changes.

Only the tropicals got flakes sprinkled on the surface daily, I didn't want the angelfish to get stupid ideas, being hungry and seeing those yummy looking neons.

The aponogetons have flowered, both stalks have a white flower on top. I'll probably show pics later after work. I need to turn their heater up a bit, now that it is getting quite cool in the house (68F) the heater only heats the tank to 76F.

Today (hopefully) I am finally ordering plants from plantedaquariumcentral. I hope I picked the right plants! It's mostly anacharis (6 units) and italian vals (4 units), and then 1 unit each of other plants to bring some variety in: temple plant, bacopa carolina, brazilian pennywort, narrow leaf anacharis, red tiger lotus - and a dwarf lily for the in law' betta tank.

I chose only from the low light section, and preferably fast growing varieties. With the anacharis, these will reproduce quickly too and I can dense it up a bit more. I would have loved to add something similar to amazon swords, for their leaves give such nice cover. But the amazon swords always melt for me :rofl

I really hope this will finally make it possible to remove the divider and have then angelfish get along better.

I admit that my tank's have been neglected at times when other areas of my life are crazy :)

I can't wait to see all your new plants when you get them. I have been very happy with my purchases from there :)

Sounds like you have a good selection of plants. I've been very happy with my purchases from PTC as well.

Oh, and welcome to blogging!

Planted tanks can handle the lack of water changes much better then non planted tanks. And the more plants the better. I hope you new plants all work out. I have beening thinking about adding pennywart but have no clue where I would put it and don't want to take anything out.
