VikingMummy combined tank logs

Post by VikingMummy2015 »

Tank 1: 29L All Pond Solutions Nano Tank. Belongs to my 10 and 12 year old daughters. Set up October 2017 and contains 5 white cloud mountain minnow. The 12 year old wants guppies next time so will be useful chemistry homework for her in a few years!

Tank 2: 240L Fluval Roma. Fishless cycled and started adding fish on 1st November 2017. The focal point of our living room....other than for the 2.5 year old we originally decided to keep fish for!!

Tank 3: 29L All Pond Solutions nano tank. Hogwarts inspired home to my betta, Remus. He came home on 9th January 2018.

Photos will be added once my toddler permits me more than 5 minutes to myself!

Hmmm...photos are not going to happen tonight. Not sure quite what's going on. Get a message saying either I timed out or file size too big (2.32mb is one I checked but too tired to work out if that is greater/less than the limit).

I used to have a brain and then my kids stole it....

For now, my tank update is: all fish are alive, all parameters are as expected, and Remus is due to get algae scrubbed off his glass tomorrow with his w/c. Need new photos of him as his head is now almost completely black!

2.32mb is too big. Site says max 2048kb which is 2.048mb.

Has Remus lost his moustache now?

Glad all tanks are ok.

Try compressing the image. That may work. Looking forward to seeing him :D

Here goes...took at least 20 shots and these were the only worthwhile ones! *and appatently i can only get one at a tine due to file size*
He does moody quite well, hanging out among the salvinia roots where the glare from the tank lights shades him out! He does still have the blue sheen over his tail but his head is now black and noticeably so compared to my avatar picture. He still has a white ruffle to his fins and those lovely red spots. He doesn't flare often; he's more of a shimmier/fast swimming guy.

I rearranged his tank today (caught him in a jug to stop him getting stressed and/or in my way) so the filter is more central, to try and get better water movement at the surface, otherwise a slight film develops over the week. He is enjoying the new layout and one of the moss balls is floating for him too.
