    Eyooo, got some plants today

    More an impulse buy and this isn’t even half

    This was I believe 37 plants and there are 125 more coming, which was 1000% not planned

    Still building the tank they going in so they are currently in a temporary holding tank until that tank is built

    Well Glass, Silicone and Polistyrene was almost R1300

    Honestly, its cheaper to buy 2ft tanks than building them.

    I'm amazed you manage to keep track of so many tanks. Just having 3 (of which one was a simple QT tank) was doing my head in! I'm very much a one tank (plus one pond!) person!
    So awesome all the projects you have on the go.

    Thanks Maria, still need to build 2 more of those and get 36 1.5ft tanks for the other side but that will come with time.

    Hahaha, it keeps me busy, but when I’m not busy I go insane so I prefer it that way.

    And I’ve never had a pond until now, and I have to say I love it.

    Set up another tank today and moved over a ton of blue dream shrimp, still 50+ babies left in the breeding tub that I couldn’t catch so will grow them out for a bit before moving them.
