    Its either a bacterial infection or a worm, both treat with ampacillin dips for 4 hrs, I get to do this 4 more times Rolling Eyes
    Amazingly he went easy! I'm still mostly dry! And he is a good 10lbs! After I moved him I picked up the 10lb bag of sugar and they were about the same Shocked
    He is not happy in the treatment bin though.....

    Jill and I moved the 75 today and so far no deaths I don't think (had a fish jump on the floor and didn't know) My female shrimp are still berried and the new cherry shrimp additions were venturing out lol. Not looking forward to moving the salt tank. I have a very push over group of fish....especially if I can keep shrimp in it

    Finally got some Severums. I had been putting off getting some due to my plants. Severums love plants.

    Someone gave me one small, about 1 inch, green one; and a 1 1/4 inch gold one. I put them in one of my 29 gal. until they get a little bigger.

    There go my plants. I'll get some plastic ones, or just decorate with something else.

    I'm going to try to get my 100g frag tank into place today, or at least a spot cleared out for it! And possibly make the frag racks for it

    I put up another divider in the 75 to separate the living fry from the fry eating monsters. The fry that are left are stunning even though a few need a little time to grow back fins and what not lol.
