And...

So the tank was collected last night and the mollies are there, 2 adults, 4 juveniles including a baby, the Cory are really a three lined plus 2 enormous Cory's that are peppered cory but pics to follow.

We also have 3 plecos, I have not had a good look but one might be a common.  At the moment they are all about 5" long. And 2 silver tipped tetra.

So I need to have good hard think about this plan and decide who stays and who goes of the new arrivals and the odds in T1.

    Thanks.

    It is not fun.

    Yes, fish still adopted although I think the mollies will be rehomed and I need to consider the plecos since they are not small.

    And how have we got to March?

    So I am still stuck with my waifs and strays with no homes lined up for the two surplus mollies, 1 spare BN and the shoal-less tetra.

    T1 is very happy and the Bamboo shrimp is 3.5 years old now.

    The 4 footer goes on eBay tonight with the intention of swapping it for T2 the weekend after next.

    The 70l is in the spare room and I will move the black neon tetra into it from T3 this week.

    And....I went to Pets Corner in Lewes for some fish bags yesterday.  Whilst looking in the tanks I met an old lady clutching a 1l ice cream tub. Her tank had failed, she could not afford a new so she had hoped the shop would take her fish. They would not.

    You can guess can't you?

    In the tab was not much water, 2 cory and 3 rummy nose.

    The shop added a little more water and then I dashed to my girlfriend's, explained the change of plan, shot back to Uckfield...and set up the tadpole tank in the kitchen as a QT.

    Then realised we had no spare heaters so I went to Pets Corner Uckfield, blew £23 on a heater and rehoysed the cory.

    The rummynose did not make it, possible because of the stressed cory.

    My mother opened the door to me a few nights ago to find me with a handful of frogs and toads I had plucked off the road. She has referred to me as St Francis of Uckfield

    Well done on the good deeds Matt  thumbsup2
    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
