    I thought maybe I'd start something to record the goings on with my tank which will be soon expanded~leaning more toward the 29 instead of 20L since they have the same footprint.

    Currently in my 10gal I just added a couple of tiny otos Saturday night~I had a palm sized spot of algae on the back wall of the tank and it was gone Sunday morning. Watching otos and when they are just hanging on the side glass or on a plant leaf makes me wonder if they are just resting or sleeping and if they do most of their work at night...I did get some algae wafers-I think I starved my last one..my tank doesn't get direct sunlight and expect maybe he starved.

    Ruby the GF is the queen of the tank-no doubt about it. She isn't aggressive to any of the others; she's just big. The corys go about their own business not bothering anyone, but those danios, particularly two of them, are a nuisance. There is now a danio that will hang with the neons in the corner with those other two get to into their chasing chasing games...not sure, maybe I'll take the back to the lfs I got them and trade em for more neons or another panda...

    I'll post some pix in a little while..

    Yes ma'am. I remember in the first grade (1971?) when the teacher said the US was going to convert to the metric system

    My humble 10 gal~it has an AC30 + spongefilter (HydroII). I'm not a huge fan of the pirate head, but at least the GF won't root it out like it does the plastic plants. I like the plant thing that's in there now-it has a heavy weighted bottom. The pirate is hollow to hide in if the smaller critters like..

    Well, at least you're not as mixed up as I am...I think cm for snow, if I measure something it's inches, tanks are gallons, temp is Celsius...I confuse myself sometimes!

    The reason I ask is that a 29litre tank is actually smaller than the 10gal that you have...

    Feeding veggies to the otos would be a lot better than algae wafers.

    Ruby, queen of the tank, with a danio blur whizzin' by



    The neons, no name~just doing their usual hiding from the danios & GF..


    Obviously Brookfish doesn't have to worry about any photography competition from me

    I have a small fan at the water level on the 10 gal moving air across it and it's doing a fine job keeping the water temp steady..

    The gold comet died yesterday~causes unknown, started acting lethargic previous day and way dead by dawn...don't know if was related to the costia last week or not. I wasn't a big fan of the critter but we did have it for 5 years...

    Anyhow looking forward to having a 29 gal tank with more than one fish in it I could move the inhabitants of the other tanks into a single one but then what would be the fun of that? Not sure what to do yet~headed to Lancaster County this week sometime, stopping in at That Fish Place for some inspiration.

    I think I may bring the corys down from the upstairs tank; the upstairs gets so hot thinking maybe putting fish in there that can stand warmer temperatures.

    I lost most of the stock I bought last week~I thought the girl at Petsmart was handling the fish rather roughly (learned my lesson)...and I figure the shark's jump over the side turned out to be fatal after all.

    Seven new baby guppies born Friday, the single one from the previous birth now has brothers and sisters to play with.

    I picked up 2 more Zebras from a different lfs~~thinking now about swordtails perhaps though I keep reading about how they do better in brackish water though I kept/bred some back in the early 80s in FW...have to ask around.
