Cleaning day

Im cleaning my two tanks today. There’s a lot of work… I was for a long period of time on vacation -my brother was supposed to clean the tanks and feed the fish but he only did the bare minimum..- after that I returned to two dirty tanks. one was full of plants and the other was full of grayish poo and rotten plants. luckily none of the fish died then (only when I came back two days later one of the gertrudae males decided to go for a big jump). Anyway, I decided it was time to clean everything thoroughly.

I Started with the 20 liter tank since it was very dirty. I put my betta (Apple) and all the shrimp in a temporary tank in the meantime.

the temporary tank, as you can see they have a heater, filter plants and a lamp 

I was looking for her! she is responsible for the disco! ah-ha and she’s already full of eggs

Apple, being shy.

A LOT of plants had to be thrown away -they were completely rotten- and a big part of the sand had to go too… the tank looks like this now:

more news will follow tomorrow, when the water will be filtered. this tank will become the home of the gertrudaes and some shrimp. the other 30 liter tank will also be cleaned..
