Fishcapades

Chrissie came and picked up all her platies and the catfish today.  Well all but four of the platies, which I kept in the krib tank.  Platies are super skittish fish and run away whenever you go near them (let alone try to catch them).

Then I caught the two black neon tetras and the five rummy nose tetras and took them downstairs.  So far they still look quite miserable in their new tank.  I put a plant in but maybe they need some more.  Then I took all the plants out of the two foot and tossed them, scrubbed clean all the filter and heater equipment, cleaned the glass and fully drained the tank.  Will let it dry out completely before giving the gravel a thorough cleaning.  With any luck the scourge of the black algae will be gone after all that.

I also pulled out the dead baby angel :(  No idea what happened to the other one.

So in my AR-620T I have five danios, two angels and a cory.

In the krib tank is the old krib, five danios and four platties.

In a small tank downstairs I have the two black neon tetras and five rummy nose tetras.

Dinner tonight was chicken thighs and frozen cauliflower and broccoli.  Cooked up some rice as well and have three lunches prepped, as well as several containers of *stuff* cleared out of the freezer.
