    wow! you were busy over the holiday!! total bummer that the paint looks grey... can't imagine how much of a pita that's going to be to scrape off. good job picking up another tank, you would think they would place those stickers on the outside far away from any seals. glad to read that you got a good deal on the plants... can't wait to see them all finished, you did such an amazing job with the design on the 75 gallon :)

    you were busy. Must be something in the air. last week I switched out my 5 gallon betta tank for a 15 gal, planted it and today I added some pygmy cory a few more neons and a pair of nerites snails.
    Hope you second coat a paint works better than the first!

    I have taken a vacation day tomorrow to scrape, repaint and add my sand and artificial plants. I still need to make my DIY sliding glass tops I need the glass) and buy the inline heater for the 2nd tank, but if all goes well, I can start a fishless cycle (using seeded bio media) on the 1st tank.

    It was Clark & Kensington Satin Indoor Enamel. Great paint that I used to paint my stand (which is very black). I think it has a reaction with the LED lights that makes it look steel grey.

    Cool Using the first 29 gal as QT for 4 new neon dwarf rainbows!


    1 Not allowed!
    Finally, fish in the first 29 gal! I am using it as a QT for my 4 new neon dwarf rainbowfish, 2 M & 2 F (they will complete the school at 7 fish). I got them at the swap yesterday and they are beautiful. They will be in the QT for 4 weeks.

    Haven't started to cycle the 2nd 29 gal, as my inline heater for the 2nd tank has been on backorder since 12/17 (they are out of stock everywhere). The price is so good and with free shipping, I am willing to wait for it.

    I have decided against the glowlight danios. The Rena puts out a good flow (QT is bare bottomed and it moved the fake plant from one end to the other) and the glowlights like calmer water. I am going to transfer my 10 gold pristellas from the 75 to the 29 (and add 4 more to complete the school) once the rainbows are transferred to the 75 gal and I do the aquascaping. The pristellas pretty much stay in the plants in the 75 - maybe in a species only tank they will be less shy. I also think their golden color will really pop with the black background and sand. I might add a calico BNP down the road.

    With the tetras out of the 75, I will increase the scissortail school to 6 and add the 5 F longfinned leopard danios. I will use the 2nd 29 gal to QT these fish, as I don't want to add the amanos and peppered cories to a brand new tank. It won't be a mature tank, but will be running for 4-5 weeks.

    Tonight I will put my beamswork fixture on the 29s and hopefully get some good pics of the new rainbows for posting tomorrow.


    Also, the API Filstar XP-M canister (old Rena XP2) is a bit disconcerting - it makes absolutely no noise! I keep going over to check the surface agitation to make sure it's running!! I am used to the hum from my AC110s (it's like white noise now). The canister was super easy to set up and transferring the seeded media was a snap. I am extremely pleased with my first canister.

    Glad you gave us an update, sorry you decided againt the Glowlight danio, I know you don't like alot of species in one tank but with a tank as big as your's you could put a decent sized school of them in your 75g? Just a suggestion.

    Here are 2 videos from last night -



    The brown stuff by the base of the plant are their NLS pellets from this morning. And they also ignored the frozen bloodworms. They will grab the food if it floats by, but not search it out. Maybe it will be gone tonight, although the filter is so strong it is sucking up the food. I have ordered a ball valve to adjust the flow. They were coloring up more this morning. Will try them with some flake food tonight.
