Fish journey!

FishPlanet

So, all that started this MTS (Multiple tank syndrome) were 3 goldfish. Two died within the first two weeks. We kept our remaining goldfish in a 1 gallon fish bowl.

A few months later, we got a 10 gallon aquarium setup from our friend. It included 3 Glofish and 1 pleco. We did water changes 1x a month and the temp usually ran down to 60 F. (I know, we did not know much about fish keeping.)
A month or so later, we bought 3 more Glofish and 4 neon tetras for the tank.

We also had made a pond for our goldfish and gave her 3 more friends. Our Glofish, tetras, and pleco remained in this condition for a long time. The goldfish kept dying until we found out to get a filter and do water changes in the pond.
We also went to a friends house and got 3 guppies. They kept having babies that kept dying. We figured they were inbred.

I also went to a friends house that had a betta in a 1 gallon. I bought a betta and had him in the one gallon I had.
He lived in there for a few months until I got him a 20 gallon. I cycled it for not even 24 hours. After I "cycled" it, I put 2 guppies, my betta, the pleco, and 5 neon tetras in there. A couple days later, my betta was not active, two guppies died, and 4 out of 5 neon tetras died. I learned my lesson.
I removed the remaining tetra and my betta (The pleco stayed in), and cycled the tank for two weeks. When cycling was done, I got 3 platies, 12? neon tetras, 6 harlequin rasboras, 1 male betta and 2 female bettas.

Since then, we have gotten several more fish, and included a ten gallon. I will keep you all updated on my fish keeping.
Farewell until next time! :) :D

Wow! What a journey! I hope all is going well with your new fish. Please include pics in your next update! (Sorry I don’t mean that in a pushy way. It’s just always fun to get ideas from others.)

Hello again fish fans!

Tomorrow will be 3 of our bettas recue from pet store birthday. We have had them for 3 months. We are glad that we have them. Our small group of female bettas are also doing good. I recently got some shrimp and are hoping to breed them soon. The newest members of the family are Pearl and Marble. Pearl is a Ivory mystery snail and Marble is a blue mystery snail. Our two male bettas, Atlantis and Neptune, are in their divided 10 gallon with some neon tetras, MTS, and a cory catfish. He seems to be doing good as well. The latest death was Pepper (SIP Pepper), my salt and pepper platy. I have had him for a good 8 months. The mystery snails are growing good and their shells are looking better too. Also, all my female platies are due sometime in the next 2 weeks. Way to go Mamas! We also released the newborn baby platies with the bigger ones. Alot of live plants have been introduced as well. Water lettuce and duckweed are a few. Thanks for the great suggestion, Corygal8857. Here are some pics:

Hi all!

Here are several new things to add to the Journal!
We recently discovered a whole bunch of bladder snails in our pond! It's no big deal but Soon we will have to take out everything for the winter! We also found a ramshorn snail. The water lily has been blooming constantly also. We have several new fish too. Galaxy, Skye, Mati (Greek for eye), Fürli (German for fire), and several fry that Galaxy just had yesterday! I have kept busy, cleaning tanks, feeding fish, taking algae out of the pond, checking for mystery snail egg clutches, and so on.. Oh, and I forgot to tell you all: I found a baby shrimplet!!!!!!!!! I am so excited! Thats all for now, I think. Till next time,
