For those who didn't read my other thread, I suddenly had the opportunity to get Neolamprologus Multifasciatus MUCH sooner than I intended. It was a mad scramble to set up the tank. I was suppose to pick them up tomorrow night at 7:00, but got a text this morning asking if I could pick them up today. Sometimes God works in mysterious ways. I was trying to overcome a breeder's pH of 6.0 and bring them up to the level of my 8.0 pH. It took over 7 1/2 hours! I never would have been able to do it if I had gotten them home at 8:30 tomorrow night. The tank was just sanded yesterday and while it looked clear, it was considerably more cloudy this morning. I had to throw my diatomaceous earth filter in it to try to clear it a little. I am concerned as to why it got cloudier that it was when I first finished sanding the bottom. Their shells won't be here until Tuesday so I'm hoping the rock will make them a little more comfortable. They have a lot to overcome with the large pH difference and everything else. Please keep my cuties in your thoughts and wish us luck. [/ATTACH] [/ATTACH] Ugh...I've got flashing going on.
