The babies look like tiny platinum specks from across the room. They swim around excited about everything!

Finally found a moss that likes the terrarium area! Look at that nice bushy growth.

A new member has joined the paludarium: welcome the Lined Day gecko! I love geckos, this little guy will be active during the day so I will be able to watch his antics. No name yet, but I’m excited to have another wall gecko!

The adult shrimp in the paludarium is berried! That means little shrimp will arrive soon, and I expect them to thrive since there is no fish to hunt them.

my Badiswas out hunting in the 40g. I saw a little shrimp hiding in the grass too. Despite the predators my shrimp population is in the rise

Mama molly gave birth to a single baby about 36 hours ago, but still looks pregnant. Maybe the little one was premature? I’m hopeful that is what’s going on, since otherwise mama is going through birth complications which would probably kill her.

the little blur is about half the size of the other babies.

these babies love their food!

Mama molly is still swimming fine and eating. Hopefully she delivers fine.

I’m leaving on a week long vacation tomorrow. I’ve cleaned two 10g tanks, Frosty the betta 5g, Mel in his 2.5g, and the paludarium. It’s 10pm at night and I have just finished cleaning the chinchillas cage.
I also packed my bags and finished building a new chicken coup for my flock. I will sleep well.
Sorry for no pics.

Here’s pics of some of the tanks before I left! I label them and their diet so my mom feeds them correct portions.

so here’s what changed in 8 days. My rotala and water sprite took over my 40g.

I love them all but the 40 is simply amazing! That’s a tank that’ll inspire other fish keepers.

I’ve been evacuated from my house. I caught 7 cloud minnows and five mollies and 1 loach.
I have all my bettafish, and I took with the 5 gallon tank, the 2g hexagon, the paludarium, and a plastic tub with the fish.
My non fish friends have all made it out, 11 pigeons are at the Spca, 2 chinchillas are at a rescue, and the 3 chickens, 2 leopard geckos are in the horse trailer with the fish: praying for even weather, hoping the heat lamps keep the trailer warm enough for my bettas.
Day gecko and tokay gecko are inside.
salinas River Fire, praying my house is still there.

Thank you so much, I appreciate the prayers.
I’ve finished rigging the horse trailer to keep all the pets happy.

thetiny fence is to keep our three chickens inside when I enter and exit the trailer.

I’m glad to say my four baby mollies lived through transport. I had an inch of water in there so I could carry it with help to the trailer. It’s close to 70 pounds empty. When I poured the water back in it was so cloudy I couldn’t tell if they where still alive. These little ones are going to be bomb proof if they live through this!

C695D85A-C599-4266-BE25-61BBA04715D5.jpeg

the fish from my 40g that I managed to catch are living in here, I took some plants with so they didn’t get stressed from having and empty tank.

00C074CC-F384-4BE5-9361-9828C8495CD1.jpeg

on the second run we did I got Frosty’s tank. He’s not doing well, he has Dropsy symptoms probably brought on by stress from the trip in a cup. I brought my med kit with though and am treating him with furan 2.

I got Mels hexagon and rigged it with a little heater. I bought a tiny tank and am putting Pluto the blind betta in it. She’s just to active to keep in a cup. I wonder if she knows she’s swimming in circles. I think it’s dipping down to the 60s at night. The trailer is much warmer then the outside because the leopard geckos have heat lamps but I don’t want to let them get cold.
Thankfully the white cloud minnows are versatile and can withstand the temperature swings.

I’m relieved you are able to keep the animals safe during this. Dang I really hope you return to your undamagef home safely ASAP and things can return to normal. For all of you and yours.

I bicycled into the neighborhood today. The fire is out around us but the evacuation hasn’t been lifted. Yet. I filled the tank and fed the fish. So happy my house is still here and so are my fish!

I moved back in on Monday, all the fish have survived. Frosty is still showing signs of dropsy, Furan-2 isn't fixing him.
Life's been to busy to post a better update, with pics. I still have shrimp in the paludarium despite it traveling with me, what tough shrimp I have! Either that or it really is 70% filter the way I made it.

I cleaned and trimmed the 40g today, I think I threw out five pounds of duck weed. I’ll be selling all the amazon sword babies soon, I need them gone and I hate throwing anything away. Pm me if your interested, first dibs will be for my thread buddies. it always cheers me up when I have people reading and reacting to my posts.
Frosty my giant betta didn’t make it. S.i.p.

One of my chinchillas, char char, had a stroke during the evacuation stay and didn’t make it. I only had him home for a few hours before my vet appointment. He passed away at the vet the next day.

this is Black Jack, and Vincent. I adopted Vincent from the California Chinchilla rescue. He’s really sweet and gets along with Black Jack beautifully.

I just finished slicing plants! I cut a lot of Anubis and amazon sword.

I had a single wild type neocardina shrimp, and it apparently was super romantic because I have over 40 wild shrimp mixes of red and gold. Well, now that I have many shrimp I’ve started sorting keepers from culls ever morning. I put the culls in with my bettas so nature can handle them. And that’s exactly what happens. Not.

the cull shrimp steal the bettas food and continue thriving and multiplying. I’m okay with that, I kinda like the red and clear striped shrimp after all, they look like candy canes.

I have released the last of the baby mollies now that they are big enough. Unfortunately mama molly passed away yesterday, from unknown causes. She was fine and eating in the morning but floating that night. This is one of the reasons I stopped breeding platy when I was a teenager, live bearers can die randomly without showing any signs of disease. I used to keep/breed Mickey mouse platy.
since papa molly died last month I’ve only had female mollies. Last time I had three female mollies one decided to switch genders, but so far mama molly has only raised feminists.
