Here are some pictures of my brothers tank after cleaning, you can see the line of bubbles on the glass. It took my an hours to fill it all up!
I cleaned my tanks today and and I saw that two shrimps died.. I still don’t know why but I guess poor water conditions. I cleaned everything thoroughly today and even took some plants out that weren’t growing in my betta’s tank (the dwarf hairgrass) I think that’s because I still don’t have a suited lamp for my tank (I currently use two ikea lamps that don’t give a lot of light..). I also cut a bit of javamoss from the shrimptank. The moss is growing extremely well :D! I even installed a little ‘moss carpet’ on my HOB filter (now lets hope it’s going to grow). I also took the chance to take some pictures of apple with his catappa leaf.
I’ve been looking for females on aquabid, just to know what’s out there. I found a lot of beautiful (and ugly) specimens and wanted to let you know what I really found beautiful! Of Course not every female betta can be put in a sorority but hey,.. you can always dream :D
I used to have a preference for crowntails but now Im not sure anymore, I just want them all! they are all special in a different kind of way…
MY TOP 5
So I cleaned all the tanks today and I took the opportunity to count the shrimps. Turns out I have 12 left (so.. 2 died but I never found any body). The flowers of the anubias aren’t going well either. the second flower completely rot from the inside. Maybe it’s because I stopped giving profito because I bought something else for the plants and I also added more ferro today (maybe a bit too much). But well see, I hope all rest of the plants are going to be okay next week.
after the cleaning I gave the shrimps some pellets and they loved it (or were very hungry)!
I was looking for a better lighting for the tank of my betta because the plants don’t seem to grow really well although they have plant fertilizers, co2 and ferro.. I did something wrong but still do know what..
Im maybe also planning to do another blog about drawings and art but im not sure yet, I won’t have a lot of time in august and september.. I was also planning to buy 5 females for my sorority but checked the shipping prices and they are horribly high (I would pay -+ 50 euro/betta). I spotted different females that are reallllly stunning but they will be probably sold by then ;D
After a lotttt of cleaning, filtering sand, taking out dead plants, making everything flat and putting every plant back in (basically after changing everything), my brother’s tank got much much better. The (remaining) fish didn’t show any signs of dropsy and began to eat more. we decided to buy new plants, a big piece of wood and ofcourse, new fish. We decided to go for 12 rasbora trilineata (or scissortail rasbora’s).
