update tanks

While I was at the festival of Angouleme (A huge comic festival held in France every year) my cat visited my room.. apparently I left my door open and.. guess what he did.. Jep he annoyed some fish to death. Now im not going to be angry at him, its just his nature. and honestly I should have checked my door before leaving but I was in such a hurry that I probably forgot.
So here we are again, with another RIP post..

and the worst part is, I cannot even show you which fish died, since I don’t even have a picture of them.. It was the last red platy (he was the survivor) two neons (also the last of their little pack) and 4 scissortail rasboras. What’s left of it? 4 traumatized scissortail rasboras…

I don’t want to end this post with such tragic news, so Im going to show you how my tanks are doing now (without the kitten!), the plants are growing well, I even had so much javamoss left that I decided to make a javamoss-wall.. not sure how the final result will be.. but we will see. I read that the freshly made wall needs to have lots of light and a strong water current to grow even better. I also started another little tank; more as a quarantine tank for emergencies, because with my cat, I feel that Ill use that tank more often! ofcourse, because I added plants and substrate the whole tank cannot be used for at least 4 weeks..

the rescued scissortail rasboras have been put in a little cage in the betta tank.

I still have a huge amount of javamoss left, so I put the rest in a jar.. hoping to make another wall when I have enough time.

the betta tank; you can see him on the far right, next to the cage, that’s were he mostly likes to sleep. the little cage inhabits 4 scissortail rasboras now.. yes it’s crowded!

    • Yes.. But Im pretty sure that’s because of my work right now. I don’t have enough time to clean all the tanks and take out rotting plants etc.. I used to do clean all the tanks 2x a week..
