    Just need to wipe off all the glass on the inside now and upgrade the lights. Difficult to catch a pic on these little guys for now

    The one Catfish gave me a scare, we had a power outage from around 01:00 am this morning still on going to got a dc air pump started up for some water movement. Looked like he was stiff in floating a in the middle of the tank. The moment I moved to take a pic he started swimming away. He played dead and gave me a fright.

    Looked fine, not sure if he just played dead or something, did not expect it. power only came back on about 10 minutes ago. So when I get home tonight I will go through everything and hope they are all fine. Still saving up to do a proper UPS backup for my setup.

    Thanks, feeding them 3 times a day a well. just to ensure everyone is getting their bit. Will be doing weekly water changes for this. Today I will burn through my first 325ml bottle of Seachem safe that I started with on Sunday o_O. one of the Brichardi I also saw got into the first chamber of the sump filter because they are so small, will pick up a small net on the way home to get him out this afternoon.
