    Just for you rob! lol


    Well I just found out (after a spiffy call to the town to confirm my tests at home were telling me) the town has added "purifiyers" to the city water. Would have been cool if they let us know. But hey... we're just the people right?

    Anyway... so now I'm stuck with a 7.6ish ph. Not a huge deal but still pisses me off. The main tank has always been 7.8 because of the background so no biggie there but my guppy, fry, and Angel tanks have gone up from 7.2ish. I just don't want the increase to hurt my fish... if I had known about this BEFORE it happened I wouldn't have done such large water changes over the weekend. Could have brought the fish up slowly... but no... *insert long list of swears here... then make a few up...* Grrrrr.....
    Anyway...

    on the plus side... I found some white Fuller Honeycomb rock and some white tufa stones at one of the local fish stores. The store said the honeycomb rock would bring my ph up to 7.6 - 7.8... so I didn't buy any. So now I figure this all out and it looks like it's going to be there anyway so... I'm buying stone this week to make myself feel better! lol

    some nice chunks of driftwood will probably bring your pH down a bit... angels dig the tannins too!
    Nice tank BTW!
    your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!

    I think thats going to depend on who pairs up and if these guys atart to get aggressive towards each other. Most of them have been together since they were a month old so they're pretty much use to each other. I would like to keep them all in there but if I end up with a solid 6 I'll be thrilled. The remaining can always be moved back to the main tank.

    I can't wait to finish this either. Now I just need to come up with something to do with the rocks I'm getting and try to make some nice cave out of them. I also found some more bamboo plants that are in all kinds of shapes and groups. The other thing I want to do is take some of the small colored flat stones and make some kind of pattern in the sand. Should be fun to do.
    I just have to buy small pieces at a time so I don't get into trouble...

    Trouble? Just because you can't buy groceries for the week because you spent all that money on aquarium stuff doesn't mean you're in for trouble.

    You could always eat NYLONS.

    Beast is getting pretty defensive of his and Beauty's corner. He isn't bitting anyone but he's got a hell of a head butt and won't think twice about chasing the others the whole length of the tank. lol. He has pretty much taken over the right side of the tank from the filter tube to the glass. lol

    I placed a couple pieces of rainbow slate in the corners last night. Doesn't go with the tank but owell it will do for now. I honestly think they have the filter tube in mind for their nest. I went to touch the tube and both of them were right there nipping at my hand. I thought about moving the filter but I don't want to tick them off and miss a first spawning. so if that where they go... I guess I'll cope.

    Their reproductive organs are sticking out now too. So I'm expecting some kind of activity soon. I hope they do this when I'm awake so I can get some cool pictures!

    Hey everyone in the house said they wanted to go on a diet anyway. If we don't have the money to waste on food then we can eliminate the problem all together! I'm just trying to help!!
