Hi folks. Sorry for lack of update. I moved Gracie (my son chose the new name), all the plants and some of the livestock around on Saturday.

Sadly I then ended up in hospital with pneumonia and have only just gotten home.

Gracie has done a number on the 240L, but hasnt eaten any of the fish that were still in with her, hasnt even eaten the couple of plants I left in.

Shes still not moulted but from what I saw last night and today shes a lot more active, so seems quite happier.

I've still got to sort out filters etc, got the FX4 to plumb into the 240 and moved the 307 over to the 90. I've had to order more fittings for the 90L since the filter will have to go over the back. Undecided on whether to fit the FX4 under tank or over the back.

Welcome back home and hope you're rid of the pneumonia soon.

Good to hear you still managed to swap the various creatures around - that is dedication.

All the best!

So some quick photos. Sadly it seems I'm not going to get much done, even simple tasks like stairs leaves me exhausted. I managed to catch 3 white clouds and 1 cory then could barely stand.

Not happy the cory is on his own now in the new tank, going to have to buy some more to stop him solo stressing, as I cant manage to catch the others now.

Some photos:

240L

Gracies Log

She completely dug out a tunnel under the big tree, and even moved a stone to block the front end. Think the Atyas then stakes a claim as shes not gone back in since.

And the 90L

It's a lush planted place here, but dont let the photo fool you. The plants and leaves are covered in silt and the little U2 just cant cope since the move. They need pulling out, washing and replanting, with the 307 moved in at the same time. I'm worried now though I just wont get that done before damage is done.

Hope you recover very quickly.
I also hope everything can get sorted with the tanks, but don't overdo things while you recover.
